This is my 3rd time to Pepe Italia. The food, service and ambience is always perfect. The attention the staff give to diners is fantastic. I love hearing their information about the dishes on the menu and how authentic they are with the preparation. The new renovation is inviting and their adherence to hygiene and safety during these difficult times is reassuring. Never disappointing! Support Pepe Italia and book!

The pizzas were great and super fresh! The food came out extremely fast which was a plus, but our lovely and bubbly waitress was certainly the star of the show. I didn’t get her name but she was blonde, tall and chatted all about her Italian boyfriends heritage-loved it. Will definitely be back.

we had been to the restaurant for the first time several months ago and the young lady that served us that evening immediately recognised us (hopefully that was for the right reason!) and was very welcoming on our return. The service from one of her colleagues was also exceptional and attentive. We choose the chefs tasting menu which again did not disappoint. great food, service and ambience and we def will return soon.

If you want authentic Italian this is the place for you. Wood-fired pizzas and fresh hand made pastas. Recipes taste like an Italian grandma made them. Wonderful customer service. I actually live in Brisbane but make the 1hr drive because it is so worth it. This is a restaurant for those that really enjoy great food, great wine and great service. And the prices are spot on for value.

Just too noisy , social distancing 4 square metre rule?

I just had trouble hearing the waiter who spoke softly and some of your customers were very loud.

Lovely staff, and very friendly and efficient. We ordered Pizzas, and shared,
very fresh and delicious, flavours, although fairly " scant" with the topping, ie only one prawn per slice, about 6 tomatoes, halved and about 6 pieces of bocconcini.
Just to mention......

Friendly helpful waitress and staff. Food was delicious and we would definitely return again. We are locals and said it was nice to have something like that local. Not a huge menu choice but what we did have we enjoyed very much.
Thankyou

The restaurant has been given an update and looks great but unfortunately the food was really sub standard. What used to be a reliable Italian restaurant is no more.The lamb ragu was watery and lacked (lamb) flavour and basic seasoning. The menu itself is now a bizarre hybrid with little or no authentic Italian food. But if great wallpaper is your thing then this place might be for you.

We found the menu difficult to read and unfortunately there seemed to be limited vegetarian options.

Bellisimo! We dined here as a table of four as a special evening on my daughter's birthday.

Everything was enjoyable from start to finish with the staff being warm and friendly. The ambience was charming from decorative dinnerware to the decorations and the vespa mounted on a ceiling beam.

Then there was the cuisine...mwah! We shared a Capricciosa pizza and Mediterranean salad for entree and the pizza did not disappoint. Such a delicious base with plentiful toppings.

For mains each of us selected a different pasta dish which we placed in the middle of the table and shared. Wow, simply wow, they were delicious with the homemade pasta superb.
Each dish had its own character, we had a pesto, lamb ragu, amatricia and the special with salmon and a hint of chilli.

Our waiter, Savaro, was attentive and professional and our special requests were handled gracefully. I so appreciate the customer service European waiters provide, making the evening's experience even better.

Much appreciation to the team 💖🙏

I couldn’t recommend Pepe’s Burleigh Heads enough. A group of 4 of us came for dinner on a Tuesday night and we left very impressed. The fit out of the restaurant is charming, and the ambience great. Our waiter Sav was absolutely wonderful. A perfect combination of friendly, professional, attentive and he had a great knowledge of the wine list. Food was incredible, we had the gnocci, arrancini balls and a barramundi pasta. Had a fantastic night, thanks Pepe’s :)

The new fit out looks great , service was fast , the food and wine was delicious. Only recommendation would be for the waiters /waitress to add fresh shaved Parmesan and cracked pepper to really top it off. All in all it was great experience.

Having been to Pepe’s many times, and it being our fav Italian on the Gold Coast. The menu has changed, we didn’t particularly like the new menu (our favourite dishes taken off) and then when the food came, it was just average. Maybe the chefs have changed. Disappointed and not going back.

They have tried to be inventive with the menu - barramundi stuffed anglotti - however the hand made pasta was very hard and the bean purée sauce was very grainy.

Pizza was good though and service great!!

The service and food was great, but the aircon was way to high... blowing on us and cooling our food too fast :-(
But we will definitely come back as the staff and food were really nice. Thanks

I love the food here And have eaten out front mid week several times and that's why I thought it would be a great place to bring friends for dinner. However the noise level inside on Sat night was off the scale and the music was too loud competing with the clientele. We had to yell at each other across the table to be heard. The food was incredible but we had the entrees and the main arrive and our ordered bottle of wine had still not come. I had to get up to ask twice and then it was put unopened (cork bottle) on our table and left there so I had to get up and ask yet again for someone to open it! Overall the Maitre D had some serious anxiety and stress levels going on and was throwing his body at speed at us past and around the table - that was not enjoyable. Not sure we will be back although I will miss the pasta.

I'd give the seafood pizza a miss, seems like a dollop of marinara in the middle of the pizza. Too sloppy.
Entrees were amazing love cheese everything
Air conditioning situation needs to be improved
