This pizza isn't really for me. It's proper NY style in that there's loads of cheese and loads of grease. Some people love that so you can't knock it. However, I prefer Italian style pizzas that are very thin, very crispy and very simple with fresh and quality ingredients. That's the complete opposite of Sal's.

I've had the chance to sample many of NY's finest pizza offerings, being half-American and my family is from there, and I can honestly say this is the best NY style pizza I have ever found outside of Manhattan itself! Fantastic cheese, perfect amount of Marianna sauce and a base/crust that is as good as you're gonna get without that... More

I love Sal's pizza. It tastes like the real American deal. The buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing are AMAZING, too! I always try and get my fix when I'm in Auckland. All that's missing is the snapple and rootbeer! =)

I went there while staying in Auckland. Their price were really good but the pizza itself, on my point of view, was just big and tasteless. Still a good place.

Ordered their meatball pizza on the first night of a two day stay and ended up ordering it the second night as well! The whole family enjoyed it.

Having toured the US extensively (along with the fact that I'm married to an American) I know my pure and proper US style pizzas. You just can't find them in a Melbourne. But, luckily, Auckland doesn't have that problem. Sal's delivers the exact Pepperoni slices you'd expect to find pipping hot and pretty on the streets on New York. They're... More

The aroma, the char, the thin based slices, it's NY all over. Although there are a few stores in Auckland now, for the cool city experience I hit up Commerce Street any day. For a special outing, choose a day some baseball is on ESPN. Grab a pie and a jug of beer, sit down in a booth and watch... More

Hi there - we spent a few days in Auckland and after eating out in Restaurants we felt like something simple and easy on our last night. The pizza was great and the guys working there were really friendly. If you are looking for a great quick and easy pizza and beer then well worth heading here.

Large flat hot simple cheesy pizzas. Good service. Small takeaway-style restaurant. Gave us celery sticks for baby for free. A bit cold but very funky and happy with the experience!
