We had a wonderful dinner at Sale e Pepe. The noise level wasn’t too bad in the beginning. We had requested a table as quiet as possible however, about 30 minutes after we were seated they put a tangle of 8 men and 2 woman behind us. They were extremely loud so our husbands had difficulty hearing anyone but that table of very loud men.

Hard to figure out what was better the view or the food. Chef really knows what he is doing. Had a truffle risotto that was as good as any I’ve had in Italy. The veal tenderloin was perfect. Nice wine list.

We were a group of 6 women who went for lunch to celebrate our friend’s 60th birthday. When we were seated there was only one other occupied table. They sat us directly next to them. It made no sense as every other table on the balcony was empty. It put a damper on our little party as we had to be careful what we said and how loud we talked and laughed.

I didn’t realize that gratuities was included in my bill. We were a party of 4 and most restaurants do not add gratuities to party less than 6.
With the above I ended up over tipping. I am in the process of trying to get the additional gratuities returned to my credit card.

We arrived at the restaurant early but they were able to seat us anyway. The food was quite good, especially the pasta. All the portions were small and the prices were highly inflated.

The food was good and the portions are the perfect size. The pasta bologna Se was paired with a Parmesan foam. Delicious. The rib eye was done to my liking but, it was nothing special. I have better rib eye at home. It was a la crate and served with without a accompanying sauce. I used the well aged Gorgonzola from my salad to top the steak. It added a dimension to the steak that was lacking. We tried the house aged bourbon as an after dinner aperitif. Horrible! It’s a cheap bourbon thrown in a small cask and aged 6 mos. Go with a name brand. Music was playing but couldn’t hear it on the terrace. Overall at little too pretentious for my liking with very little to back it up.

This restaurant came highly recommended to us. The food was exceptional, but the service was just awful. After 1.5 hours, we still didn't have our salads. We called the Manager over and about 10 minutes later we got the salads. BUT, after the salads we probably waited another 45 minutes for our entrees. It was the week of New Years, so maybe things were off. BUT, on the other hand, we saw a lot of staff just standing around. Once we did get our food, though, it tasted great.

We were not aware that there was a set menu. Perhaps Open Table can make note of such specifications in the future. Not every restaurant has a set menu for New Years Eve.
The service and atmosphere were wonderful and the food was delicious.

I have taken many people to Sale e Pepe over the years. I have never been disappointed with the food or service. The decor is outstanding, service with a smile and the food is supreme. I'm not afraid to try some exotic food or even just a bowl of pasta, it's all great.
Some of the review options I do not know. I'm sure they have vegetarian or gluten service I just have never had a need to ask for it. I do not consider it casual but I have seen travelors in casual attire. I would not consider this a restaurant for a quick bite.
I have had the same server the last couple times I've been there. I highly recommend you ask for Daniel.

Everything was wonderful except the service. We waited for every aspect of the dinner . There was one hour between when our appetizers were served and our meal. What should have been a 2 hour experience turned out to be a 3 1/2 hour nightmare. The view, the ambiance and the food were outstanding. No one came to our table to explain the delay...We are long-time patrons but this night may change our minds for a return visit.
