Excellent pizza and incredible blueberry cheesecake!

This was one of the best pizza's we've had in a very enjoyable, cozy atmosphere. The Nova Scotian was fantastic as was the basic cheese pizza. Service was excellent - if they have blueberry cheesecake you MUST try it! Best dessert ever - although the cannoli was very good, the cheesecake... read more

Salvatore's Pizza is located in the north end Hydrostone neighbourhood of Halifax. The location is a little on the smallish side but it makes wonderful thin crust pizza with.very fresh ingredients.The salads are ok but nothing to rave about. focus on the pizzza and you will not go wrong.

This restaurant is small but if you can get in it is worth it. The pizza is great, the combinations of cheese and fresh herbs was fantastic and so is the atmosphere. The visitors are relaxed and the service was great. Check it out - I cant wait to go back again.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere here. Our waitress was friendly and the ambiance was cozy. A lot of it had to do with the location - the outdoor area is clearly the best place to sit. The pizza was good too - we had the sicilian.

EVERY TIME I go to Halifax I go to Salvatore's for pizza with my family. This place is delicious, thin sliced pizza. They put three toppings on each pizza, not including things like roasted garlic, and this simple pie is some of the best. I don't think it's wood fired, but the quality of ingredients make up for that. A... More

Tasted their pizza twice on a recent vacation in Halifax. Gourmet pizza prepared simply with sophisticated style. Delicious both times. Very mémorable & it's about the best pizza I've ever had.

There is nothing wrong with the pizza, but it is not as good as all the hype. Seems to be popular with hipsters and artists.

We loved the Pizza. What can I say, the food was excellent. Fresh, great tasting, and hot - real European flair. Simply excellent. We did come in busy to so took a little longer but it was worth it. I would certainly recommend it!
