We enjoyed our meal at Sale E Pepe . Interesting if very confusing decor . It promotes itself as an up market Italian . However all the decor is Parisian including large paintings by Toulouse Lautrec . Not sure if they understand that . The food is very fresh and perfectly presented but not overtly Italian .It is trying to be a little more up market than it actually is perhaps . The staff are very good and efficient by American standards .All the nice tables were left empty and the less well positioned were used first when we were there . Removing a one finished main course before both diners have finished is not indicative of 1st class service though . $260 for the three course dinner for two including a fairly standard bt of Pino and a glass of malt is probably a bit on the high side but nice surroundings and a wonderful view of a fabulous sunset makes it ok . You do get the feeling they think their doing you the favour by letting you dine there . Need to work on the etiquette maybe ?

Wonderful view and great balcony for cocktails. I wouldn’t call the bartenders just bartenders. I love that song I would call them mixologists. They are so precise and put a lot of care and tell making the various drinks. I was very impressed.

We went about 30 minutes ahead of our reservation. They do have a dress code for the formal dining room. They ask for dress pants and a collar shirt. I had a very nice shirt on that did not have a collar and very nice jeans that did not look like jeans and they said I was OK. They also have tables in around the bar area if you prefer not to dress up and come in shorts.

The Branzino (Mediterranean Sea Bass) was very good. We also shared 2 half portions of ravioli and linguini. You can tell the pasta was very fresh and made in the house. Whatever you do, don’t leave without getting the chocolate bar for dessert. All I can say is WOW. Bravo.

We ate here last year and thought it was one of the best Italian restaurants around. However, this year there were 15 of us and half of the party were not happy with our food. I am sorry, but it was a big disappointment- especially because it was very expensive. It was not worth the money.

One of my favorite restaurants on Marco. I love to take friends there for lunch although I heard the dinners were exceptional as well. The wait staff is wonderful and you can't beat the view of the water. Impeccable!
