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

We had a table of 7, our server Sarah was excellent, made sure we had everything we needed. We have been here several times and they are alway consistent with great foods and service. We had key lime pie , lava cake and Cream Brûlée for dessert, they were all delicious so glad we all shared

Without question, one of the best Italian restaurants around. Selections are varied and multiple. Food is GREAT and never disappointing. Service is excellent. A delightful place to visit with friends and family.

One of the best Italian restaurants around! The homemade pasta is especially scrumptious as is the Beet Salad. Especially love the Short Rib Ravioli and the Seafood Ravioli dishes. Their Pecan Bourbon Bread Pudding dessert is the best I've ever tasted! Highly recommend.

Food is expertly prepared and consistent. Service is congenial and well executed by a professional staff. Even with the dining room filled to capacity the background noise is subdued and you can carry on a conversation without a problem.

We met our niece and nephew there, midway for both of us Ct residents and since we arrived early we enjoyed a wine at the bar. Small but friendly area. We were seated at a booth for dinner and enjoyed great food and despite how crowded the restaurant became we still could talk and hear each other. We will return.

Having been to Sal & Pepe's many times what keeps drawing us back is the consistently excellent food, great atmosphere and a staff that ensures your visit was totally enjoyable.

Delightful atmosphere for dinner for two or more. Music really in the background (how delightful and thoughtful). Our server was spot on....menu suggestions, timing of service, not intrusive but attentive. Food was delicious, although my dish of crispy chicken (the chicken was perfect) but the accompanying Burgundy sauce and gnocchi need to be more highly flavored.
