We zoomed in and got a booth right away. A special occasion, our elderly mother turned 92 and it was slow moving getting her settled and in seat. We sat down and waited, and waited, and waited at least 45 minutes to be served. Finally, we asked what was wrong. The manager had no clue what happened. A waiter was... More

This is a special restaurant with a wonderful menu. Ordered 2 items from the specials and both dishes were excellent. Prices are moderate , staff was friendly and extremely courteous. Nice atmosphere and easy to find location.

Three of us stopped in for a late lunch. We sat outside to enjoy the weather. We got here at 3:01 just a bit too late (3:00 deadline) to take advantage of the luncheon menu. We ordered from the dinner menu. We had...Chicken Caesar salad. It consisted of romaine lettuce, some sliced chicken and Caesar dressing. We also had the... More

The small menu signifies that what they offer will be good and consistent. Menu does not change that much, but the weekly specials compensate for that. Prices are average, but by no means a bargain. Portions of the main dishes are of a good size, you should not be hungry..Appitizers are relatively small compared to the main dishes. Attentive wait... More

Food here is mostly Italian with some American-style meat and fish dishes in the mix to round out the menu. Quality and taste are consistently very good to excellent. We visit every chance we get, and wish we could come more often. You'll likely need a reservation Thursday nights or weekends. Lunch menu and lunch entreés are excellent as well.... More

We just cWde from eating at Sal e Pepe. We were so intrigued by all of the appetizer choices on the menu, that we opted to just eat appetizers for dinner. We ordered the clams Milan, the calamari, the tuna tacos, and the beef bites. Everything was delicious and excellently prepared. We also split a Caesar salad as a starter.... More

We have not been to lunch there for awhile and were very pleased with the wide selections. The staff were friendly and top notch as usual. We were able to... More
