My wife and I dined here once before and returned on 7/72014. We asked for a booth but were told they are all reserved. We were seated at a table that was covered with plate glass over the table cloth. During the meal as dishes were removed and silverware placed on the glass it was never cleaned. Yes we did... More

Good food, nice staff and great desserts! Staff is extremely attentive and makes sure that your water and bread basket is always filled. A very comfortable atmosphere,not too dressy and yet not overly casual.

A lite pricey but food was good. Only complaint ridiculously small table for 2. Really. Could they make their tables any smaller? Service was attentive and prompt. Will go again but will request larger table.

This is our go-to "date night" or "celebration" place, the food is very good, the services is great, but it's on the pricey side for what you get. Definitely make reservations if you plan to eat here on the weekend, there is usually a wait. All the pasta choices are great and they usually have specials. If you eat here,... More

We went here with my parents to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. The food and service were great. The filet was one of the best I have ever had. They were very accommodating to someone on a low carb diet, which is difficult to do in an Italian restaurant.

Always top notch food and service. Have been going to Sal e Pepe for many years and have always walked out happy. From the appetizer, drinks, meals and desserts.always something different and delicious, not a typical Italian restaurant.Definitely worth a visit.

Driving by and saw this cute restaurant...I made a good choice, all I wanted was pizza and they had 3 different pizette's to choose from. Covered in figs, arugula, prosciutto and at least 2 cheeses, I was impressed. Crust was a little different than the usual commercial types but worked well for this combination of toppings. I was a happy... More

My wife and I took our neighbor out to dinner last Friday at Sal e pepe. I quickly grabbed the first frequent diner "coupon" from my desk bring it expired March 31st. In the past this didn't matter as they come each month. I was surprised to be told after dinner that they now only honor such coupons after a... More

We always enjoy coming to Sal e Pepe. Food never disappoints. I usually opt for the specials as they are more exciting to try. Service is good. And even with the white table clothes I can still enjoy an early dinner there. They have plenty of options for the kids - and more better options then most places.
