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.

The best gnocchi I have ever tasted - light, lovely consistency. Choose the alfredo sauce, a beautiful complement.

Veal Parm is outstanding. Wife's go to meal more times than not. Salmon is always cooked just right and very flavorful. Had Filet Thursday night and was excellent. Staff is always friendly and professional. Very consistent and food is always excellent.Prices are in line with experience.
