We ate here on the first night of a recent vacation on Marco Island and loved it so much that we reserved again for our last night on the island. We started with cocktails on the patio to watch the amazing sunset and then moved to our table, also on the patio. The very creative menu has a wonderful selection of upscale items. We enjoyed the butternut squash arancini and crab panzanella salad. The meatballs were good, but not as tasty as everything else. We also tried the braised veal cheeks and the tuna and pasta, which were both terrific. My favorite was a filled proscuitto pasta special with shaved black truffles. It was out of this world. The tiramisu cheesecake is terrific, as are the cocktails. This is a must stop for a wonderful dinner in Marco!

Went to Sale Pepe Saturday night, March 9th with a group of 4, one of whom was celebrating a birthday. We've been there several times before and agree the setting at sunset is lovely and makes any celebration that much more special. Our servers, Ruby and Tomos were wonderful and Sophia, the hostess was attentive and fun to talk to. They made our night and really cared that we were enjoying ourselves. The appetizers, wine, pasta dishes that we shared to sample were very good. The problem we had was with the entree two of us ordered which was the catch of the day (branzino) with clams and mussels. Although very delicious, the mussels had sand in them which made them inedible. It was a wonderful dish that we wanted to love but sand in the shellfish showed a lack of attention that was below the standards Sale Pepe diners should expect. We told our wait staff who said the information would be passed along to the chef and that was the end of it. No accommodation was made or courtesy extended in the form of another glass of wine, dessert or adjustment on the bill. We certainly spent enough on wine, appetizers, pasta dishes, entrees, dessert and coffee to justify an accommodation. This was disappointing and surprising.

Food is gourmet, service is exceptional and atmosphere is unique. On a warm night the best seating is on their balcony, which overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and offers one of the best views of the sunset to be enjoyed over cocktails. We did request balcony seating in our Open Table reservation and assumed we would get it since we did not hear differently. Hence our surprise when we arrived and they advised us the balcony was reserved for a large party. We would have appreciated a call or email to at least give us the option to rebook should we wish to do so, given it was a special night with guests. Other than that, it was perfect.
