Nice to have a new restaurant open and do such a nice job, straight out of the box. The food and atmosphere were both very enjoyable and we have been twice in the last month. I happen to be a fan of fresh herbs and they have them right on your table to add as you like. We ave tried the apps, the pizza and the pastas and all were good. My personal favorite was the chicken liver crostini... losta flavor !!

Our newest restaurant in Lahaina turned out to be a treat. At first we kept passing on the place because of the line. One time, we could get right in so we did. It is located in the old KFC location by the Ulalena theatre. Parking is always a challenge there but we were lucky and found a spot immediately. Service was prompt and attentive for us. It is small (after all, it used to be a KFC) but maybe being small will help it last a while in Lahaina like their neighbor Thai Chef.

It was really warm in there. I am sure it's the pizza ovens but they will need to address that as summer is just starting in hot Lahaina. The food was much more Italian based than I had really envisioned and what we had was really good. We will definitely go back. Their bar menu is very small but they had Peroni so it was ok with us. Keep it up Sale Pepe! Trying your pizza next time!

Do not pass this place up! A little hard to find but well worth it! We went with a party of 6 (2 kids) We tried a bit of everything....Salad,Bruschetta,Pesto, Rigatoni, Pizzas (off the hook), and a conversation stopping Risotto! Every dish was fresh and delicious! This is like eating in Italy! Oh and by the way, the desserts are wicked good as well..Pizza dough filled with Nutella and Tiramisu....Every plate sent back perfectly clean.

We have been to Sale Pepe three times since it opened and have been very satisfied as to the freshness and quality of the food and the manageable portion sizes. Qiana does a wonderful job at "front of house" and her partner is passionate about his food. All staff are very helpful and do a nice job. Altogether a wonderful food experience. We will definitely return on our next visit to Maui. Wayne and Iley.

We visited Sale Pepe last night and are planning our next visit. The food was great and service attentive. It has been open less than two weeks and other diners were regulars already. The Bucatini alla matriciana appeared as a simple red sauce on pasta but was infused with the flavor of onions and pancetta. It was delicious. I could eat it every day. The pizza had a perfect thin crust with a sauce that tasted like tomatoes. Yum The prices were reasonable.
