This restaurant is gorgeous! The service is excellent, the food is lovely and you can take your own wine. It is a nice relaxed atmosphere and the waiter is so patient and explains dishes to you if you need more information. We eat out alot and this restaurant is one of our favourites. These people know how to look after you! Please try it yourselves you won’t be disappointed.
Group of six went to Sale & Pepe with a 10% discount voucher. The service was excellent.
We shared 3 starters. Then we had 2 steak ‘specials’, a risotto ‘special’, the fish of the day; terakihi, & osso buco. All meals were well presented & delicious
We took our own wine & paid a minimal ‘corkage
Most enjoyable evening’
Tried this with discount voucher. The customer service is top notch. The restaurant does well catering for vegetarian. The spaghetti carbonara is really good with strong flavour cream sauce. The dessert Tiramisu was also fantastic. Will definitely be recommending this place to others and will be visit Sale & Pepe again in the near future.
Having seen the great reviews we decided to try Sale & Pepe out, and were not disappointed. Our mains were delicious, reasonably priced and the portions were generous. I really enjoyed my spaghetti carbonara, which was tasty but not too creamy, and the spaghetti itself was perfectly done. The spaghetti marinara was also great.
The service was very polite and friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed. Will definitely be back.
Lunched on a Tuesday, arrived 1-30ish, oh oh?, not a soul! What a fantastic surprise, we shared the mixed fried seafood entree’) light and crunchy thin batter, 4 or 5 different fish and so delicate and fresh. I had spaghetti carbanara (glad I chose entree’ size) and my friend the Caprese salad, (Mozzerella, tomato and basil e olive oil) both were delicious. Lovely coffee too. We had a delightful Brazilian waitress and the Chef all to ourselves, how special did we feel.
Excellent, can’t wait to go again
One wish, that they were both B.Y.O.
My girlfriend saw a voucher deal so we decided to try it out. Upon arrival we were a little concerned by the fact that it was empty (7pm Sunday night) but turns out this just made the experience even better.
The service was exceptional with extremely friendly waiter/waitress (we had 2 for the whole time ) who could answer our questions very well – one knew the wine list better than the back of his own hand.
We skipped straight to the mains – a carbonara and seafood marinara. Both were good sized portions and tasted amazing.
The atmosphere of the place and presentation was excellent and we left feeling full and happy with the price we paid.
We went knowing that the restaurant was reasonably new and so had no expectations. The staff were polite, knowlegable, attentive and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious, with all four at our table ordering a range of different meals and each of us being very satisfied with what we had ordered. The steaks were cooked perfectly medium rare and were melt in the mouth. The salad was fresh and tasty with well cooked prawns. One of the diners was gluten and dairy free and there were several options to choose from – including gluten-free pasta. The chilli beef dish chosen was also perfect. To finish off the meal, a chocolate pudding and ginger creme brulee were ordered. Both were delicious and finished the meal off nicely.
Yummy. Went here for the first time for an anniversary. Great food, lovely wine, great service. The bread and dips was one of the nicest I have come across and the mains were delicious too. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Used a deal voucher here and the food was excellent. The service was really good and the meals were timed perfectly.
The tortellini was delicious and so was the porchini mushroom ravioli. This really hit the spot with home made pasta. Cooked al dente. Well priced pasta dishes also.
We had the antipasto platter which had feta, 2 other hard cheeses, pickled onions, prosciutto, olives, sun dried tomatoes, ancovies, pate, salami and another cured meat. Really yummy. They also swapped out the grissini at my request for some bread.
Will definitely be back. I also like that it’s not too crowded and you will probably get a last minute booking.
Very good Italian, had Pasta Nero, Sal had Carbonara, both well cooked, fresh and light, hard to get in pasta. Will be back to try more, this restaurant deserves support and is a worthy successor to Milano.
Sale & Pepe is definitely a great choice for a good Italian evening out. The service is polite, friendly and attentive – but more importantly, the food is delicious. I had the ravioli with porcini mushrooms – the pasta was well-made and the sauce was absolutely delicious. My main of veal scaloppine was tender and well-cooked, and the limoncello truffle dessert ended the evening on a high note. Will be back.
I have been to a lot Italian restaurants, this restaurant easy you can tell the difference from the others, they have real homemade pasta and the food it’s not prep-cooked they start from the scratch, you need to be prepared for a savoured repast, an authentic Italian style dining experience, service was very good the chef care about you and the waitress don’t look to you like they are doing favor. I honestly think this place deserve 5 star. Well done guys.
