Have been visiting Sale e Pepe for several years and its our go to spot for italian food. Its family ran, has friendly staff, reasonably priced and a relaxed atmosphere. Love their penne checca and their arrabiata sauce.

Very good waiter, excellent pasta. Would not hesitate to return. Both my husband and myself had homemade pastas and both were excellent. Portions were not large but were very satisfying.

Moderate prices, good service and authentic food. Carry out and delivery available. Good selection of unusual pizza toppings and wide variety of pasta sauces.

Sale e Pepe is nothing fancy but their food is good. My favorite is the Spaghetti Carbonara...Hmmm! I go there often with guests from my B&B. Wine is affordable too.

I love this place because it really has a family feeling. I often have brought my kids and the wait staff are always extra nice to them and bring them legos or crayons and paper while they're waiting for their food. The food is always...More
