Sal e Pepe is one of my favorites. For years we have been dining there on New Years Eve and always enjoy. But I also love going any time! The parmesan crusted tilipia with green pea risotto is delicious. Lovely choice of salads. The blueberry cobbler special was amazing. The staff all works together so you never have to look... More

A delightful Italian meal. All guests were pleasantly surprised by the flavorful evening. Service was good. The dessert of Nutella pie was excellent and took the prize for dessert. Bruschetta was fresh, main courses were above average to very good. The eggplant stuffed was excellent. The pasta with sausage was excellent. Salmon was average.

AJFoodie: Sal e Pepe is by far the best Italian restaurant in the Newtown area.Try the Fettucine Pescatore...BUONO!! And Monday night free corkage is an offer we can't refuse.

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.
