Sale e Pepe, an elegant yet resort casual restaurant located at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, has joined the OpenTable network. With more than 25,000 participating restaurants from which to choose worldwide, OpenTable is the largest provider of online restaurant reservations.
The OpenTable web site provides a fast, efficient way for diners to find available tables that meet their desired criteria for cuisine, price and location at a specified time. Diners can also book reservations through OpenTable via their mobile smart phones. Since its inception in 1998, OpenTable has seated more than 350 million diners around the world.
Sale e Pepe operates under the experienced guidance and direction of Executive Chef Guiliano Matarese. A former Executive Chef at Convivio and Chef de Partie at Charlie Palmer’s Aureole, a Michelin-star restaurant in New York City, Chef Matarese brings his personal style and creative flare to the Southern Italian cuisine at Sale e Pepe. The restaurant has also been honored with the “Best of Award of Excellence” from Wine Spectator magazine for seven consecutive years, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Italy’s stunning culinary achievements, as well as its magnificent Renaissance art and architecture are celebrated at Sale e Pepe. Diners are treated to an authentic cuisine rarely experienced outside Italy, with dishes prepared fresh daily by Chef Matarese. Born in Napoli, Italy, where he began his culinary passion at age 3, Matarese began cooking at their family restaurant and then began to explore different regional expressions in Sardegna, Veneto and Lago di Garda before moving to New York City, and now Marco Island.
