Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food was lovely from taste (compliments to the chef) but portion wise paying £14.95 for spaghetti gamberetti you would expect more than 3 prawns.. other than that it was a great tasting meal and evening

We had a lovely meal here tonight. The atmosphere was great with plenty of people in enjoying their food. I had the calamari for starters and a Rustica pizza which were vey nice and tasty. The staff were very pleasant and attentive.

Rarely do reviews but this place is amazing!! Visited due to recommendation and they weren’t wrong was seen to by Peter. Had the lunch time special and I thought for a change I’d have something never had before so opted for 3 cheese and pear...ravioli.. it was by far the BEST starter I’ve ever had in a restaurant!! My partner had the Parma ham. Crostini and she said was amazing and was well presented. We demolished the starters and awaited with anticipation for the main course…we were not disappointed I chose the chicken valdostana with home cut chips and my partner opted for the feather blade of beef with peppercorn sauce. We sampled each others dishes and the beef was so succulent it cut through easily and was delicious..the chicken wrapped in Parma ham and mozzarella was cooked to perfection. We decided to go for the three courses and I had tiramisu which was light and not too overpowering on flavour it was spot on. Partner went for the ice cream with amaretto and coffee which ended the meal off perfectly. Peter then gave us complimentary limoncello shots as during chats we told him about our engagement yesterday which was a well thought out personal touch to service. We will most certainly be back and will bring others. Thank you to Peter and the kitchen staff for a delicious meal we look forward to coming back!!More

Hands down the best Italian food around. I can honestly say neither myself or any other members of our party have had a bad meal whenever we’ve visited from starters to steaks and pizza / pasta all consistently stunning. Staff were attentive and overall another...lovely night. Can’t wait to visit again!!More

First time at Sal Pepe for a family birthday and was blown away at the variety and value for money on the lunch specials. King prawns to start in a mouthwatering garlic butter with timbale of rice and enormous fresh salad. Main was the juiciest...chicken breast valdonstana in a sauce I can't stop thinking about. My little one had a pizza from the kids menu and was huge and so fresh and tasty. Will definately be back. Great place and not your average Italian.More

We eat here often and find the service hit and miss but last night it was appalling. Left for ages without anyone asking if we wanted drinks so had to catch someone’s attention. Ordered a pint of Neck Oil, got a pint of Moretti. Ordered...a pizza and asked for normal red onions, rather than caramelised. Pizza arrived with caramelised onions so it went back. My husband had finished his meal by the time my pizza came back and, when it did, it had clearly been rushed - base was soggy, loads of fat on on the ham and crusts were anaemic. Such a disappointment.More
