Stopped into Sal's for dinner while in Burlington on business. We were seated after a brief wait. The service was very good. Lots of choices on the menu and the food was quite good - prices are reasonable. Give it a try.

Its insulting to Italian food, the menu says one thing and the dish comes out another! I see that the selection of Italian food is vast in Burlington but none of them are authentic at all! Speaking as a native. I ordered pollo alla cacciatora and it was acidic and not enough tomato sauce it just.. tasted nothing like it... More

Sal's is great any night of the week, and they always have specials for diners on a budget. Wednesday is half-priced wine night (by the bottle or glass) and the Sunday Brunch is amazing! Reminiscent of being on a cruise, as they have entirely too many delicious temptations, including a Belgian Waffle station, Stir Fry station, Omlette station, Pizza station,... More

First I have to say our server Jalen was wonderful and we had a great time with him. The bread was also great as was the chocolate cake we had for dessert. I wish I could say the meal was that good. We've been there before when the food was good but not this time. The italian dressing they put... More

Introduced to Sal's a few years ago by my hubby, who used to live in Burlington. From what I understand, this local, family-owned Italian restaurant has been a staple in the community for years. Without a doubt, hands-down, one of the top two best lasagnas I have ever tasted! It is a party in the mouth! It is a very... More

Just had the best Sunday brunch in Burlington, NC! Individually prepared omelets, freshly made waffles, all the Italian fare you could want, plus carved prime rib, lamb or ham. Desserts were plentiful as well. We will definitely be back. One note they do not open until 11:00.

This has been a local spot for great Italian dishes and pizza in Burlington for a long time. Locally owned with a great authentic menu. The fact that they have been around for so long is a testament to their great restaurant.

Reasonably priced, tasty Italian food in a warm friendly atmosphere. Though the clams in the Shrimp fra diavolo did not taste fresh, the shrimp and the sauce were very good.The Vela Parmesan looked great. the pizza was delicious.
