There is simply nothing to say. We drive quite a distance to get get there, and it is far better than anything where we live.
this restaurant has always been a great place to eat. Due to Pandemic we ate outside with heat lamps. Tables well spaced. Food as good as always and waitress service was terrific.
Repeat diners even with Covid going on. Started with Maine Mussels. Unfortunately these were a bit tough and the broth was not very flavorful. Small Caesars were very good. The main courses were superb. The Pistachio Crusted Salmon was excellent. I cannot recall a better Salmon dish. My partner ordered the Ravioli special which was also done perfectly. Service was very good as well.
Fabulous, as always. We eat here often, as should you.
One of our favorite restaurants; great food, people and ambiance. Always an awesome experience!
Outstanding dining experience as always!
Nice resturant. Felt safe inside. Shields between booths. Wait staff wore masks at all times. Food and variety were excellent. Good value for your money. Will definitely go back again.
Been a couple of times, never have a had a bad meal. My wife and I both felt the meal was rather bland unfortunately. Service was fantastic....
The eggplant parm was very good but the lasagne tasted like nutmeg. Not sure if they were trying to be trendy but it was very off putting .
One of our favorites!
Would not recommend food as we could not eat most of our meals due to poor quality. Highly disappointed and would not good back.
Awesome!! Food was amazing! Perfect evening. Thank you!
Food was good. Fresh! We were put in a room to the right. Not very pretty. Staff was nice
As always Sal de Pepe was excellent. We sat outside. Service was terrific, as it always is. The only problem is we live so far away, but we are always happy to drive however long it takes. Restaurants where we live are much more expensive, and not nearly as creative.
Great outdoor space in these times. Food was delicious and would go back again!
Meal is always great, food and service are excellent!
When making my reservation, I requested outdoor seating even though the temperature was supposed to be cold that evening because the restaurant featured a tented patio with space heaters. We were instead seated at an isolated table away from the tent. When I asked if we could be moved to the tent, they could not accommodate and seated us inside instead. The food was great. Service on drinks and coffee was extremely slow. We were a party of 3 seated at a table for 8 with mismatched tables. Overall, the experience was average. I would hesitate before going back.
Amazing food. Fantastic service
We were sat at our favorite table.
First time back to this restaurant in years. Very pleased with food and service. An early Sunday dinner, very few tables occupied, so noise and ambiance were perfect. Food was delicious! Definitely plan to return again and bring friends.
Food was outstanding! We will definitely be back soon!
A pleasant surprise going up Route 25. While the setting is not ideal because you are close to the road, that's a minor and acceptable issue because of the current conditions. Otherwise, the food was excellent.
We hav frequented Lae e Pepe multiple times and have never been disappointed. Always a great meal and service.
Seated promptly, waiter was attentive and friendly. Calamari was yummy, I had the pear salad which was very good. Our daughter had the Mahi Mahi which she enjoyed very much. My husband had the cheese and artichoke raviolli and said it was delicious. We will be back!
We have always enjoyed our meals at Sal e Pepe very much, but last week my husband and I were very disappointed in our entrees. The waitstaff was very good except our waitress hadn't been taught how to properly pour beer into a glass from a bottle leaving a head about four inches high. We could live with the beer issue, but the pork chops and veal parmigiana were definitely not up to what we have come to expect at Sal e Pepe's. My husband ordered capellini, but was served spaghetti. The veal was very dry, tough, and overcooked with very little sauce. He said it tasted like it had been pulled out of the freezer and heated up. The pork chops were soggy instead of crispy with a sauce poured over the entire plate which in my opinion didn't work with any of the food. It would have been better to serve the sauce on the side. We did start off on a right note as the calamari and Caesar salad were very good.
Love the food and service , we go here all the time and its always great!
Food and service was just perfect. Incredible menu!
Food was good, distancing appropriate, service was good as well.
This was one of several dining experiences at this restaurant. Consistent 5 star service and food quality. Delicious, delicious, delicious!! Can’t wait to go back!
Always a treat to see what the specials are! Great staff too!
For all the years I have been dining at Sal e Pepe, every meal has been extraordinary; the service friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this restaurant for casual or special occasion dining.
Comfortable social distancing outside dining
It was my husband’s birthday and it was so nice to see the birthday card on the table!
Carmen was our server - she was awesome! No pressure at all
Excellent tasty food. Many selections for people on restricted diets or regular diets. Great service, friendly accommodating staff and we’ve been back now 4 times within the month. !
The outside dining was in bright sun. We dined inside which was set up for distancing, utensils where brought to the table wrapped, and menus where new on paper. They did follow all the rules...good for them. Although my wife and I had a nice dinner, we're in the high risk category at 74 years old, I felt uncomfortable with amount of people eating outside and inside. Normally we enjoy dining at this restaurant, but this virus has us reconsidering dining out until we feel is under control.
Try the calamari appetizer. The eggplant parmigiana was just done right.
We always stop here to eat when we are in Newtown.
Always a nice experience.
Great place. I go there often and never have been disappointed.
On Saturday evening we had a birthday dinner at the restaurant. My parents were visiting from out of town. They were completely impressed by the food, service and ambiance. This was our fourth time there and the food has always been amazing! We will certainly be back!
The food and the server were both quite good. The big drawback was the noise. I realize that rte 25 is a very busy road. We chose to sit outside because of Co-vid19 and it's unfortunate the trucks, etc., rolling by made chatting a challenge at times. I felt the prices were a bit on the high as well.
