Wow! I've been to Sal e Pepe many times, and tonight was disappointing. While I was thrilled that they accommodated our request for Brushcetta that used to be on the menu, tonights version was different, and disappointing. I don't fault them because they were using ingredients in the kitchen, and this is no longer on the menu. I usually order... More

Sal e Pepe provides an all around excellent dining experience. The dining area is warm, inviting and beautifully appointed with fresh flowers and the waitstaff is friendly, efficient and professional. From the tasty, fresh salads, the scrumptious entrees to the delicious "Drunken Cherries" dessert ...our meals were a culinary delight! We dined twice there in one week, thoroughly enjoyed both...

Generous and tasty portions of traditional Italian fare served promptly. Each couple shared a salad and an entree that we found ample.

As always, we had a great evening with great food and service. I have never had anything bad or even close to bad to say about Sal e Pepe's, how in the world could I when the food and service are among the best in the Newtown area. Once again we exited with a smile and full belly's. Thank you... More

We have been to Sal & Pepe's many times since we moved to the area two years ago. Aside from the great homemade food that is as good as any restaurant in Fairfield County, the service is always consistent and the non rushed stay as long as you want (like Grandma would let you) atmosphere helps Sal & Pepe's stand...

My friend who lives here loves this place and by the number of diners so do a lot of other locals. I found it pretty average although having the codfish special probably didn't pick the best dish to rate an Italian restaurant. My fish was a generous portion and cooked correctly and the asparagus had a nice hint of grill.... More

Sal E Pepe's is a contemporary slightly upscale Italian restaurant. In the past I was impressed with their service and overall quality of food. Recently over a few visits notice a slight decline of service and food quality. Servers could not answer basic questions about the menu. The mussels not cleaned properly resulting in a sandy crunchy experience. Mentioned this... More
