Food is amazing, service is poor when busy and ambiance is low unless you like being seated in a walkway! Probably not a good spot for a table in future, felt like we were in the way the whole time.

I had heard rave reviews so was excited to visit this place and took dad and the family for Father's Day dinner. I had also been to their sister location at Palm Beach where I found the food to be outstanding so was really looking forward to this dinner. Our entrees were lovely but unfortunately, we were disappointed with the quality of our mains. We had two seafood pastas which were 'good' without being great, two gnocchi with sauce that tasted like it came out of a jar and pasta carbonara which was dry (needed more sauce). Perhaps it was a different chef or that they were fairly busy but the poor quality of our meals means we won't be back. Shame. Service was 10/10 though!

Pepe Italia offers the best Italian restaurant experience on the Gold Coast. If you like Lygon Street, Carlton, Melbourne cuisine and ambience then Pepe Italia in beautiful Burleigh Heads is the restaurant for you.

Great food and service by a real Italian :-)
Wine was awesome (Chianti) and we had a table outside so we could watch the world go by as we ate and drank.
Loved it.

Just. We ate at Pepe’s a few weeks ago and it was a quiet night and the black ink spaghetti was excellent. The most recent time the place was busy and three pasta dishes including the black ink was lacking any real decent flavour.

We had a dinner at apele Italia in Burleigh on Wednsdays and it was absolutely amazing! Not only food was seriously delicious but also service was outstanding despite the fact that they were pretty busy. Our waiter Fabio was very attentive and friendly! For all gluten free pizza lovers their GF pizza base is the best I ever had. I can not wait to be back there soon!😋

My meal was disapointing this time. I have been twice before and it was great. I got the lasagna and it was not heated through enough. For the two of us, it was $80 each which i thought a bit expensive.

We have dined a couple of times before.
The special burnt butter and sage agnolotti was average. The butter was basically just melted with no real sage flavour.
The pizza I ordered was good. But everywhere does a good thin crust pizza these days.
The burrata was fairly flavourless. It pretty much just tasted wet and cold.

Loved Fabio our waiter! Got to speak Italian to him as well! Staff didn’t really care that 2 children were screaming their heads off. Super noisy!!! And service was amazing, except that he forgot one of our dishes, but we reminded him and he was super on top of it! Would come here again! Amazing quality food! The only Italian place that has ever offered vegan cheese alternatives! I was in shock!
