Welcome to Pepe Sale
Deep down in the middle of the Mediterranean, the people of Sardinia still enjoy the traditional home-cooked food that their grandmothers used to make. Here at Pepe Sale, in the heart of Reading, owner Toni Sale, who was brought up on this idyllic island aims to bring you some of those delicious, authentic flavours of Sardinia.
The menu features some Sardinian specialities that many of our customers had never tried before they came here - like our wonderful Sardinian bread - Pane Carasatu, various home made pastas, wild boar, fish dishes and of course, our house speciality - slowly roasted Suckling Piglet. Our delicious food is complimented by a selection of the very best wines from Sardinia and Italy
Together with the stylish, minimalist decor you will find that eating at Pepe Sale is an authentic Sardinian dining experience - and all at an affordable price.
Staff at Pepe Sale pride themselves on giving all our customers an opportunity to experience genuine Italian hospitality. We look forward to your visit!
