Excellent High End Pizza Joint

Food was delicious and the service friendly. The menu is limited to pizza, heroes and salads but lots of choice within those categories. It was busy when we were there but we received our food quickly. The have a small list of wines and local beers. Location is in the Hydrostone Market. Decor is... read more

Thanks to you gotta Here, we tried this pizza place. We were not disappointed. We ordered a large Caesar(a little to much garlic) and a Greek salad. Plus two large pizzas one a meat pizza and a speciality spinach pizza. Everything was delicious.

I love pizza. I'm very critical of pizza. This is simply the best pizza ever. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

What a find! We were recommended to this restaurant by a friend at work, and I am so glad we went! We shared a small Caesar salad (just the right amount of dressing... maybe go for one of the other salads unless you are a fan of garlic), an order of garlic bread with cheese (yum! - unlike any garlic...

If you haven't had their pizza-- I can only assume you are new in town. The pizza is the best! The Sicilian is the my favourite and I think is great warmed up the next day. Try whatever takes your fancy. You won't regret it. Don't stop at the Pizza though. The Hero sandwiches are amazing. Try the garlic bread... More

We visited Salvatore as part of our Taste Halifax Food Tour (see my review of this tour on TripAdvisor). We got to taste small samples of 4 different pizzas. Unfortunately we did not get to experience the ambiance of the place because it was so crowded that we had to eat outside in our tour bus - great for Salvatore's... More

The pizza at this restaurant is so over hyped I can't believe it. Does no body from halifax know what pizza is suppose to taste like? I can't understand how this restaurant gets the reviews it does. I ate there for the first time a couple weeks ago and was very disappointed.

I went with friends during a recent visit to Halifax from NL. When you walk in the smell is so inviting. The staff were great; the restaurant wonderful and the food fabulous!! We shared a tuna melt sandwich which was great. I had a slice of the traditional thin crust pizza... YUM!!! Would definitely recommend this place and hope to... More

My family and I went for what we new would be the best Pizza in town...yes, it is that good....but a nice surprise was how warm and inviting the restaurant and Staff were as well. We went with our kids (17 and 20) and they loved it as much as we did. Great food, our server was really helpful and... More
