Great Personal Service and Food

We went to Sal's on a lark as we were looking for some Italian food. First, the place was packed with folks waiting to get in, which was a good sign for us. While we waited, Sal himself brought out pizza for those waiting to snack on. Very nice. After getting seated Sal again came over, asked me... read more

I could eat the whole loaf of bread with their seasoned olive oil-- and had to restrain myself. For dinner I ordered Sal's combo. The spaghetti was average, the chicken parm was good and the lasagna was fantastic. Next time I will just ordered the lasagna.

We spend a lot of time in Blacksburg and Sal's is a must have! We have NEVER had a bad meal or dinning experience. Great dinner selection and a great place to grab a pizza or sandwich for lunch. My favorite dinner is the Napoli Combo. Joe is the best! His staff is always friendly and helpful. Like I said,... More

I had serious misgivings about the "private" room here...no door, wide open-hardly private. And, when we booked this for 30 folks and 41 showed, surely mayhem would ensue. Couldn't have been MORE WRONG! Noise was not an issue--the main dining area was on the other side of the facility. Was it snug? Oh yeah...Did the staff prevail? They were brilliant!... More

I haven't had very many seafood or pasta entrees at Sal's, but I've had pizza, calzones, and the lasagna many times. In my opinion, there is not better pizza or calzones to be had in the area. The Restaurant setup is not formal but is classy. I have always known customer service to be friendly, sincere, and responsive. I love... More

Sal's has become a local favorite. Good food and service at moderate prices--and a decent wine list. Whether you're looking for a hearty lunch, full dinner or just drinks and snacks, Sal's can accommodate your needs. And with "yummy" specials daily, they can keep the food fresh and the menu varied. Try it, you'll like it, too.

We always enjoy Sal's restaurant. We have tried several items on the menu. They were all to our liking. The wait staff is always pleasant and the owner very attentive.

I was amazed by the delicious menu -- from a pizza to all kinds of pastas and meat and seafood Delicious

I highly recommend their specials - they are truly special and show that the cooks can do way more than pizzas and pasta. But overall, everything I've had here has been excellent, and I've eaten here many times. The staff is very attentive and the owner is always there doing a stellar job.
