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.

We recently went to Pepe Italian for a business lunch.
We were all instantly impressed and left with high expectations after reading the menu and can happily say those expectations were exceeded!
Would happily return to Pepe's and would recommend to others.

Lovely restaurant, great service and tasty food. Only gripe is that the lighting is very dim at night - a number of customers having to use their phones to shine light on to the menu in order to read it. It would also help if there were a few more traditional menu items one would expect from an Italian Restaurant - i.e. lasagne, etc.

Excellent service in a lovely restaurant. Staff were attentive and friendly but remained in the 'background' so we could talk. Recommended an excellent wine. My mother's meatballs came out cold in the middle but the other 11 people's food was perfect, so the restaurant kindly apologised and didn't charge her. Everything else was great so this was definitely a one off and perfectly handled by the staff. Mains were a great portion and really tasty. Price was good - average $60 a head for drinks, entree and main as well as cake service. We didn't get a chance to try dessert because we had cake, so I'll have to go back for that as well! It was my 30th and we appreciated that they made sure it was a perfect night!
