The Chicken Scarpariello, priced at $22.95, was an overcooked, pre-cooked, chicken breast, grilled to warm, then sprinkled with some dry tasteless sausage bits and served in a water sauce. When the waitress asked about our meal, she received our feedback. She said she was sorry but the kitchen lost our order.

Sal and Pepe's is our go to place. Food and service is always amazing. Everything is wonderful- not a bad choice on the menu . Staff makes you feel like you are a VIP. If you have never been there, you are missing something special .

We were without reservations when the restaurant was nearly full, but welcomed and seated almost immediately. Had the feeling of a big, happy Italian family. Our celebration continued with excellent food and service. We were not disappointed and managed to experience intimate dining in the midst of festivities.

We found this restaurant traveling back from the South! Such a great find! Our waitress Sandy was a delight and service was great. The food was up there with the best we have had on our trip! We will return when in this area again for sure!

My wife and I like to go and sit in the bar area, order wine and food. Very good food. Depending on when you go there will be a crowd. In the summer the outside deck is fun.
