We hadn't been to Sale e Pepe for a long time but liked the look of the menu so decided to try it again. The food was excellent and so much of it that we wished we had skipped the starter! If you order bread it comes in a basket of different breads including garlic rolls AND tomato bruschetta. The... More

I start with the "bad" thing: it is a bit more expensive than other places in the area. But the service you get is different to find in other restaurants. Just the selection of bread and the appetizers offered by them makes a difference. The food is superb (fish/meat/pasta)

My family of 5 had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant tonight. The sea bass salt crusted fish was beautifully cooked and the home made ravioli and calamari my kids had was excellent. A great setting to boot looking across the marina with friendly service. Highly recommend.

The last day of the visit in St.Julian's and great discovery. This Italian restaurant offers fabulous view on Marina, shadowed seats in the breezy place and faultless service of the young Italian waitress. The food is perfect, menu concetrates on the sea food and the meal is preceded by attractive amuse-bouche. Memorable lunch in the beautiful place.

I really enjoyed eating at Sale Pepe's. Great italian food, nice service and good location. I really enjoyd it. Vey affordable prices as well. Feels very authentic. The TV screens with italian football perhaps makes it less cozy/romantic but nothing that disturbed me and my business partner having a great dinner.

Stumbled on the Marina more by accident than by planning and found sale e pepe amongst about 4 or 5 other restuarants all together. I think we made the right choice to go in here. The waiters were brilliant and very efficient. The included breads and appetisers as part of the cover charge were well worth it and the Italian... More
