    Excellent food and possibly the best Italian in the Thames valley Great friendly and unintrusive service and a wine list with fabulous Sardinian choices at good prices. Must return soon

    Having just moved back from living in Italy, we were craving some authentic Italian cuisine and found that Pepe Sale had just that to offer. The bread took us down memory lane- so good that we asked for another basket??. Every meal was prepared to a high standard, the taste of the fish (sea bream) sauce was impeccable. It was a pleasure to devour the mussels- not an empty shell served! We opted for 4 different dessert and again wasn't disappointed there! We felt at home- especially seeing Sig. Toni having what I can only describe as an intimate session with every customer- he met and greeted as well as served almost everyone in there! We will definitely come back and will be sure to recommend to those that didn't manage to visit us whilst in Roma.

    A lovely restaurant with lovely staff and super food. Ideally located if you are going to the Hexagon Theatre.

    Very Good and friendly service. Excellent range of wines
    Good selection of items on the menu all look delicious but would certainly recommend the liver and red onions and the pollo pancetta.
    For an usual sweet try the panacotta with basis and balsamic reduction really unusual.
