We have been going to Sale e Pepe since it opened and heartily recommend it to all our guests. Its steady quality is proof of that old saying, "it's the master's eye what keeps the mill going." Renzo has carefully maintained a steadily good quality in the menu and service. We love to sit upstairs by the wide windows and... More

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.

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 yummy and I like that they have little dishes with hot sauce and another with... More

Stopped by for dinner with friend. This is a small, local Italian restaurant that has been there for about 20 years. People arriving were greeted like family, everyone seemed to know each other. Several of the staff spoke English and other languages. The owner came by to speak to us and make us feel welcome. I had pasta and it... More

It was late at night and we couldn't find any local restaurants so we had to settle for Italian food. This place was nice enough and the pizza we ordered was OK but we felt it was overpriced. Perhaps that's common for Italian food in Costa Rica. We can't judge because it's the only time we ate such food in... More
