“What a meal!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 via mobile

Seated on the terrace with Gulf view out family thoroughly enjoyed our meal @ Sale E Pepe. We were pleased with the extensive wine list and outstanding food and service. The sea bass and Ossobuco were sublime! Certainly not inexpensive, but worth the cost for a wonderful meal on the Gulf!

“Great food, great service, but dress up for it. ”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

The food and service were great, but we felt underdressed in shorts and t shirts, although they were very gracious. This is not a casual place and the prices reflect that. They should be a $$$ restaurant.

“What a view!”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We were treated to the "Sale e Pepe experience" from the moment the Valet greeted us. Service,ambience and view were second to none.The magnificeant ocean front setting and a jaw dropping sunset are reason enough to come here.The menu,while a bit pretentious and pricey offers a wide selection for all tastes. My scallops and braised rib was a wonderful variation on the usual surf & turf. Although the mini meatballs did not sound very exciting,this yummy appetizer is made with filet mignon! We enjoyed the Mousse and Tiramasu cheescake, so save room for dessert .

“Nice View - Eclectic Menu”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

If you want to dine while enjoying a beautiful sunset view of the gulf, Sale E Pepe is an excellent choice. The menu is rather pricey and tends to be more eclectic than a number of the other top restaurants on the island. Our party of four was surprised by the limited number of seafood options on the menu.

Thank you for your feedback, and I am sorry your party felt Sale e Pepe did not meet your expectations.. While our menu does not feature the more familiar Italian-American favorites, our Chef has taken dishes originating in the heart of Naples, Italy and elevated them with his creativity and style. From Pasta's tossed with Sea Urchin and Jumbo Lump Crab, Sauteed Scallops, Chillean Sea Bass with Black Truffle Chowder, Catch of the Day there are certainly entertaining options for seafood.

“More about the view than the food”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

While the location and ambiance can't be beat, the food does not live up to the pricing. If you want a special occasion place with sunset views, great. Probably the prettiest on the beach. If you're a foodie, the presentation, service and quality are forgettable.
