Delicious "homemade" fresh pasta. In our group of 5, we each got the "pastabilities" with different types of pasta and sauce. Everyone was pleased with their selection. The soup was chicken barley and was another hit. It was full of chicken and vegetables and very fresh. It tasted great too. If I had just ordered the soup and bread, that... More

It is rare that you find a little restaurant that has quality food, a modest wine list (although I wish they had some Burgundies), super friendly and competent staff with a cozy atmosphere, yet all with very reasonable pricing. In short, it is a welcome refuge at the end of the day. Go! M-Bob

When dining at Sal e Pepe's, I feel like I'm in an elegant bistro. The service unparalleled; the bar welcoming; the menu seasonal; the presentation lovely. Our Ladies Guild enjoyed a very special birthday luncheon at Sal e Pepe's this week.

We took advantage of an anniversary discount at lunch time and were not disappointed. Good service, good food (pasta bolognaise), and nice atmosphere. Entre prices and portion sizes were reasonable. Meal was a bit over sauced, but they would have adjusted if I'd asked. Have been there before with friends, who want to come again. I expect we will return,... More

Received a gift card for Christmas and finally used it. All I can say is that the food was delicious, all of it! My husband loves lasagna but rarely orders it out, the server told him that he would not be disappointed so he ordered it...DELICIOUS!

We always turn to Sal e Pepe for our "special" meals - anniversary, birthdays, etc. and are never disappointed! We enjoy the variety on the regular menu along with the daily specials, and the atmosphere is comfortable and appealing, and the smaller spaces avoid excessive noise levels so you can actually hear each other speak! The staff is always pleasant... More

We visited on a recent Friday based on the great reviews and didn't come away with the "wow" experience we were hoping for. The food was good, and the portions were generous, but it wasn't anything memorable for the price that we paid. Service was hit and miss. One drink order was never received, though they did comp us a... More

One of my favorite places. The service is always great and the food is fresh. The pasta is never starchy like some restaurants. Always have great seasonal specials.

Great food and great consistency. Staff is well trained and the place is always busy. They have good Italian staples as well as some different things and always specials. They do a great job marketing and if you sign up for their restaurant frequent diner card they will send you really good coupons. Their dessert selection is great - the... More

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
