Nice local Italian restaurant

Very nice little restaurant. The food is good (I especially like the lasagna). Parking is limited, so get there early. Friendly staff.

For me, Sal's is just okay. The food here is average. The service is the same. They have the potential to be something awesome in an area that is really lacking good Italian food. My pizza was tasty enough, but it was undercooked. I sucked it up and ate it anyway. From my experience here, it wouldn't have done any... More

Sam's is a great place to go for lunch or dinner. Their pizza is baked fresh and the calzones are too. All of the pasta dishes are excellent!! Whenever we have friends or family visit we always go to Sam's at least once. Was so glad when they started serving mixed drinks in addition to beer and wine.

Picked this place based on the flip of a coin and it was worth it. The olive oil mix to start the meal was fantastic. The portions were big. A couple could definitely share a Stromboli or 9" pizza.

When I travel I generally like to find local places instead of the chain places. I picked Sal's based off of other reviews and the fact it was near where I was staying. I had no problem parking on a Thursday night, but I can see where that could be a problem during busier times. I had tortellini which was... More

This is a relaxing place to dine. The food is properly prepared and tickles the taste buds. Service here is hit and miss. Sometimes good service, sometimes poor service. I especially enjoy the Ziti here. Parking leaves a lot to be desired. The price of the meals is not a bargain.

A co-worker and I were in the Plainfield area for a work project. The co-worker had eaten at Sal's previously and raved about how good the food was. Staff was friendly and helpful in taking our orders and I had tortellini which was very good. My disappointment was in two areas. First, while serving a nearby taken a half of... More

Nice little town, for Indiana. The restaurant itself is gorgeous! The staff is clean and mostly nice. The parking is awful. The thing that surprised me the most was that the grass in front of the side walk was not mowed, and predominantly weeds, odd detail to skip. The Calzone was great! The marinara is good. I got a vegetarian... More

Sal's is a great little local restaurant. Food is excellent. Nice atmosphere, nice enough for a date night. Calzones excellent. Spaghetti and other dishes very good. Bread and dip offered with meal. Have not had the pizza. Seem to do a good carry out service. Located on Main St in Plainfield. Somewhat limited but free parking. Casual dress.
