Our server was great, well versed with the menu and knew & respected the fact we wanted to take our time. Wine was flowing, appetizers were a... More

We have been coming to Sal e Pepe's for 3 years now and really have never been disappointed. The food reminds me of my grandma's and the service is impeccable. Special's vary from week to week but you will never go wrong with the regular menu. They will substitute and customize whatever you would like! Do make reservations for lunch... More

This restaurant continues to provide excellent pasta dishes at moderate pricing. Appetizers are interesting and very good. Bread is crust warm and downright excellent. Wines are moderately priced and good. Deserts like appetizers are very interesting and very good. Service is friendly but can be slow when crowded but acceptable anyways.

The best restaurant in the entire Newtown/Monroe/Trumbull corridor. The food is consistently excellent and the service is top notch without being overbearing. The atmosphere is casual but classy. We have eaten here at least once a month since moving to the area years ago, and have never had a bad meal or a negative experience. Minor quibbles: they close for... More
