Good Pie. Bad delivery options

We wanted pizza delivered locally, and had heard good things. When asked how long, the fairly indifferent order taker blithely noted the 90 min. wait. We picked up. Very tasty pie. The next time a week or so later... Now 2 hour wait. IF you offer delivery, COULD YOU NOT EMPLOY MORE DRIVERS? Very... read more

I went to this restaurant to meet up with a friend on a Thursday evening to be greeted by a busy wait staff. I ask a young girl if it was seat yourself and she said "yes, sit where you want" I picked a seat in the back corner by the window while I waited for my friend. I was... More

My husband and I tried 6 different pizzas on a recent trip to NYC, so once home, we decided it was time to try Salvatore's. The slogan on their wall reads, "Italy via New York to Halifax." We were excited! It's not the pizza we had in NYC. The crust is much more thick and doughy - though tasty! We... More

We had take out pizza from Salvatore's during a recent trip to Halifax. It was during the post Xmas storm and the pizzas were not as good as I'd been led to believe by our family members who had been there before. We found the "original " combo with the mushrooms and garlic had more than a "hint" of Cayenne...it... More

Went here with my partner for a last minute bite to eat on New Year's Eve. The restaurant was busy but we got a table straight away. Great little spot with a nice atmosphere. Staff were friendly. Food was excellent, we enjoyed our pizza. Would recommend and will return.

This tiny restaurant was bustling. The food was worth any wait that was necessary. Tried three different pizzas, and the most interesting was the clam pie marinato. Reminded me of eating Linguine con le Vongole. Service was friendly and efficient. Looking forward to my next visit.

Loved the pizza, very authentic Italian pizza. Great thin crispy crust, the sausage on it was very tasty.

Went to this restaurant on a friend's reccommandation and was a little bit skeptic seeing as it was out of the way from where we were headed (Pete's Fruitique) but wow, was I pleasantly surprised! The Hero was made on fantastic bread and the meats were salty and just right. I highly reccomend!

Salvatore's is known for its outstanding thin-crust pizza, and our recent visit lived up to expectations. The server was very friendly, but perhaps a bit too informal. The atmosphere for eat-in customers is good -- like a busy NYC bistro.

You can serve food that's mediocre to what's fit for a queen, but if you're rude and passive aggressive and sarcastic to your customers, you lose my business. I do not recommend this place, I just had the worst experience, and I've heard other people say the same. And it's well known that their delivery times are theee worst in... More
