“Impeccable service”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I attended a business dinner with a group of 20 people. The service could not have been more attentive. My wife was particularly impressed with all meals being set simultaneously.
I had a filet that was perfectly cooked. My wife loved the veal Milanese.
As others have noted, the sunset views are magnificent.
The meal was not rushed allowing plenty of time for conversation. We will definitely return for a more intimate dinner.

“I love this place”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I read some of the reviews from the TA family and it's hard for me to agree on many points. First, the setting right on the Gulf of Mexico is beautiful. There are two dining areas, one inside and the other on the patio overlooking the gulf. It's a bit more casual outside. Inside, wow! Like an Italian palazzo... Not your typical restaurant at the beach but Spectacular...service, superb...reminded me of a superior restaurant in Europe.. We ate with svetlana, she was at true professional...always there when needed but not overbearing. Brava young lady! Now for the food.... It knocked me off my feet..... From the olive bread with burratta cheese and olive oil, to the roasted tomato soup with crab meat, to the best I've had crispy cooked salmon and lentils and ending with the fab sorbet and ice cream... We travel a lot and I will tell you that this place rates among the best... Fancy but I wore golf pants and a collard shirt. Parking can be a nightmare on Marco but they provide complimentary valet parking... Trust me....with over 115 reviews, sale e pepe is wonderful!

“Fabulous sunsets and great food”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

A favorite place to go in the later spring as the days get longer and watch the sun go down.

Good food, good service, great wine. Best restaurant view on Marco.

“great view-that's it......”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We decided to try this instead of dining at another highly recommended Italian restaurant. Unfortunately, we dined here! The sunset was beautiful on this night. We sat on the patio. There were several other larger tables outside too. Our waitress was nice, but the food was awful.
The menu doesn't have a lot to offer. We had the chefs special which consisted of a tomato, mozz salad. It was tasteless, the entree was veal milanese--terrible. It tasted fishy??????? The dessert was hibiscus panna cotta. It was fair. The other entree we had was rigatoni bolognaise. This was terrible. Tasted like tomato paste.
We will not return here. I am disappointed I cancelled our original reservation for italian food!
