We've been very pleased with our meals at Sal e Pepe. Food is consistently very good and drive is convenient from Trumbull. The fish dishes, like the nut crusted salmon are excellent. My wive likes their beef dishes. Wine selections are also quite good and all are reasonably priced. They also offer small discounts to regulars equal to a glass... More

We "love/like" this place. I always find one of the specials that I really like but my husband is less adventuresome. He stays with the 2 or 3 dishes from the regular menu that he likes. He is usually disappointed when he tries the "specials." But we keep coming back when we want good food.

My wife likes this restaurant and we have limited dining options in Monroe,CT so we keep going back. They also do a good job marketing with offering discounts to regular customers. I would say the service was great this time (Zach did a great job) but it has been slow in the past. It depends on which server you get.... More

Absolutely delicious food in a very warm, inviting setting, served by attentive and friendly staff. That sums up what my husband and I look for in our dining experience and that is exactly what we enjoyed last evening at Sal e Pepe restaurant. If you like specifics on the food, here goes: Me: Garden apple salad as an app -... More

Busiest night of the year; Valentine's Day. Everything should be a trainwreck, right? NOPE. The service, from the moment my wife and I arrived, to the presentation of the check was impeccable. The food, was succulent and arrived hot. I could go on and go on...but in essence, Sal E Pepe's is glorious!

Super busy Friday night but still fantastic. Great specials that change daily. Friendly, but not overbearing staff.

Loved the friendly atmosphere, the homemade pasta and the wine selections. All of the staff greeted us upon arrival and when we were exiting, thanking us for coming. Our server was very professional and knew a lot about the menu. Our meals arrived in just the right amount of time, allowing us to enjoy our dinner companions and the wine.... More
