Six stars if possible!

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... read 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.

So this place can't compare to a larger city's run-of-the-mill Italian restaurant. But it's the best Italian restaurant in Blacksburg. Particularly good lasagna.

Very busy place but worth the wait. Great pasta meals that are HUGE portion-wise. Very good seafood entrees except for one time when the fish was maybe a day too old, but that was the exception. Good calamari. Went here once with a family with a youngster and they brought out some dough on a plate for her to play... More

Have been eating at both the Radford & B'burg locations for years. Great food and service. Take out orders generally ready before you can there. Great atmosphere. If you want Italian, go to Sal's!

We went for lunch and enjoyed the pasta! I would recommend going at lunch because it is more affordable, and the lunch portion is still very large.
