“Top Shelf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

Sale E Pepe is a slice of Italy right here on Marco Island. The food and service are unsurpassed. Everything is just as it should be. If your budget is a bit restrictive, go all the same and have a drink at their beautiful bar. Happy hour is nightly, and drinks are two for one. Treat yourself to a bit of elegance in this island paradise.

“Amazing food, amazing view, amazing staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

During our recent stay at Marco Beach Ocean Resort, we had dinner at The Terrace, part of the Sale E Pepe restaurant. The view from the terrace is simply amazing, it is a front row seat to the most beautiful nightly sunsets ever. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and attentive, everyone we walked by said hello and welcomed us to the restaurant upon our arrival. I also took notice of the fresh flowers that were everywhere, even in the bathrooms, very nice touch! We dined on the early side as we had our 18 month old son with us - but we still were able to catch the sunset. The staff was more than friendly and accommodating to my son. When our server learned our sons name, she told us that there was a server there with the same name. He promptly came over and introduced himself and talked to my son. My son also took quite a liking to Anca who he recruited to color with him! She too was very sweet and friendly to take a few minutes to spend with him. Kudos also to the bartender, our martini's were delicious and perfectly made. And then there was the food. The menu was full of delicious looking options, it was very hard to choose! We started with raw oysters and arugula salad and moved on to home made fettuccini with mushrooms topped with a poached egg that was absolutely to die for and a delicious salmon dish. Everything about our experience at this restaurant was top notch. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Marco Island!

“Romantic Sunset location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

We were seated on the outside balcony with a direct view of the Gulf of Mexico, and by desert, a beautiful sunset. Very romantic! The wait staff was very attentive and the food was excellent in an Italian style.

“Great food but service not so good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

My family and I ate at the restaurant in July after receiving great reviews from friends of ours on Marco. We ate early as the children were with us. The food was superb, could not be better but we were disappointed with the service. Although the waiters could not have been more attentive when serving the wine or the meal itself, they were not very helpful overall. It was a particularly hot evening and the sun was beating down on the terrace. Maybe it was a little foolish asking to eat outside in July, but it is the only way to enjoy the view. Our table was in direct sunlight which was making it very uncomfortable to eat. I asked if we could possibly move the table back by about a foot to ensure we were in the shade. The waiter was a little put out, however, he did
move the table by about an inch and just suggested we all squeeze up at one end, this we did. There was no attempt to try very hard to accommodate us at all. The restaurant inside was empty but he did not suggest that we could move indoors. His only comment was that he was not to blame for the sun! Not very helpful. A delicious meal ruined by the lack of care.
