This is one of my favorite lunch spots. From light salads (ask for the honey citrus dressing!), to hearty pasta dishes, to the sinful lava cake - everything is delicious and the service is terrific.

A delightful find in Newtown CT. Excellent selections of classic Italian dishes with great service. An added plus was the availability of gluten-free offerings- to allow one of our family members (who must adhere to a gluten-free diet) to enjoy dinner as well.

Every time we go to Sal e Pepe's we have a wonderful experience - from the atmosphere and service to an interesting, varied menu of delicious choices. The only problem is which entree to pick from the menu!
