In town for start of classes for our daughter. We debated where to go and boy did we make the right choice. One of the best pizza I have had. Lots of toppings and not overdone like at a lot of places. Others in our party enjoed the pasta. Very tasty and enough for left overs. Too often when you... More

We had to check out the number one Trip Advisor rated restaurant in Blacksburg and we were not disappointed. It was busy for a Monday night, but it's that time of year when the college students move back - our son included. Service was a little slow, but they may have been understaffed. Our entrees came with a fairly large... More

This was our first time at Sal's. We went to Blacksburg to tour VT. We decided to get pizza but had no idea where to begin so we turned to Tripadvisor as usual. Sal's was a little out of our way but in the end it was well worth the drive. We had one of their specialty pizzas and it... More

Sal's has the best pizza and that's from someone used great pizza from Northeast/New York area. Great Italian food, great service and good prices. "Joe' is the heart and soul of the place so be sure to say 'Hi' when you go.

My husbands meat calzone had 3 pepperonis and hardly any sausage. I'm on a restricted diet and got grilled chicken salad. The chicken was so dry I just ate a bit and left the rest. Had been pretty good the last time we came here. Not very busy this eve don't know why they couldn't grill a chicken breast.

Have eaten here many times, but this one among the best! Baked ziti is superb as is the pizzas! I'm never disappointed with a meal here and the owner does a great job of giving back to the community!

Sal's is a very dependable place, regardless of a quick lunch or taking special visitors out for a special meal and, everything in between. We find it to be a very good quality to cost ratio, with generous portions which work well as leftovers for subsequent lunches. Amongst the family favorites; Romeo & Juliet, Chicken Greco, any of their pizza's/calzones,... More
