I love Pepe Italia. This is my favourite Burleigh restaurant. The food is awesome, the service is excellent, and it's just across the road from the best beach in the country. What more could you ask for?

Pepe Italia is my favourite Italian restaurant on the Gold Coast. It is great for a couple who want to chat, great for a family occasion such as an anniversary and great just to enjoy really good food with really good wines.

I booked for the whole family to enjoy dinner for my husband's birthday. He is a huge lover of pasta and the place was recommended by both our kids.
We were not disappointed. Everyone enjoyed their meal and my husband said the gnocchi he had was some of the best he has ever had.

The gluten free pizza bases are amazing and you wouldn’t even know they’re gf! The Pepe pizza special was a bit overpriced, it was still good but was just missing something for that price, but overall I really enjoyed eating here, lovely atmosphere and really good, authentic service!

We enjoyed our dining experience at Pepe Italia. The food was delicious although a little pricey. What was not so good for us was the extremely long time for our meal to be served. For this reason, we would probably look elsewhere for an Italian restaurant of a similar standard of food. (It was not especially busy when we were there.) This was a shame as the fish which I had was the most delicious I think I have ever tasted. However, it was frustrating sitting around waiting for 2 gnocchidishes and 2 grilled fish dishes to be served. The staff were friendly but unobtrusive.

Sooo enjoyed our experience , the food and service was amazing and the Italian food /ambience easily wafted throughout the restaurant making it even more tantalising! For 3 people had shared entree , mains , shared dessert, bottle of wine and coffee all for $70@. The coffee amazing and super hot, well done barista.

Going back again Saturday with friends that’s how much I loved it!

We found Pepe Italia a very pleasant surprise. The menu offered a good range of Italian food and the gluten free options were really great. My husband and I shared the gluten free pizza and it was the best I've ever had. We loved this place, it ticked all the boxes and look forward to revisiting next time we're at the coast!

Late minute booking was honoured which was much appreciated. Service was fast but not rushed or pushy. Wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was great all round. Hope they didn't get offended as we couldn't eat it all but I did my best as it was very tasty. Have already recommended Pepe to friends and we will be back. One suggestion would be don't have a big lunch before you dine. Being from a Sicilian family it was great to see the menu in the order I would have eaten at nonas house.

Both of us enjoyed our spaghetti and seafood in napoli sause. Plenty of mussels and then you also had pawns. We had a good table outside to see the passers by on New Year's Eve. Dessert was good but I should have stuck to my chocolate selection. Will order it next time. Reasonable prices compared to other restaurants on the area.
