Sal e Pepe is a Newtown favorite! The staff is always very welcoming and attentive to its customers. The menu covers a wide range of options, and the portions are very generous. It can be popular many nights, so make sure you have a reservation. We would recommend the beef stroganoff, lasagna, chicken parmigiana, and any of the salads.

Newtown has many choices for Dining. Sal e Pepe rates at the top of the list. From the greeting to leaving everything you expect from a fine dining experience is achieved. Portions are Large and presented on the plate perfectly. Service is young but pleasant. Highly recommended. Bob F.

Always enjoy my time there. Whether with one person or several, the quality of the experience is very high and very consistent. If you are looking for your 'go to' Italian place- this should be at the top of your list. Recommend the mista salad, the salmon, beef stroganoff, beef bites appetizer and the pear gelato. Their gnocchi is perfectly... More

We have been eating here for the past 6 months. The food and service have never disappointed. The portions are generous and we enjoy every meal from soup to nuts. Make sure you make a reservation as it is very popular.

The pastas and other dishes coming out of the kitchen are often superb, and the appetizers and desserts are not to be missed. This is Newtown's finest restaurant, and it's reasonably priced for lunch. Wine selections are good. The craft beer list is weak and needs improvement.

I always have an excellent experience at Sal e Pepe's. Not only is the food consistently phenomenal but the service is equally great.

The night we went, a Thursday, the place was packed. We settled for a small table between the hostess station and the front door. The seafood dish I ordered was delicious, but expensive. I've wanted to go back, but cannot justify spending that kind of money. If/when I see a half-price sale, I'll consider going back.

We reunited with friends at dinner saturday night. It was wonderful.....the service, ambiance, food were outstanding. The veal ravioli in cream sauce was delicious. My husbands Mrs. Marini's lasagna was "out-of-this world"! We were all celebrating our anniversaries....20th and 43rd. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this event so special and memorable.
