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

Great food, great service! Both my wife and I had pasta dishes. The cannoli and the Nutella cheesecake were great ends! Giant cup of coffee too! We wanted to go back during out trip to Mountain Lake Lodge but, sadly, never made it.

Of all the Italian restaurants in the New River Valley, Sal's is our favorite. They have a varied menu that includes soup, salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta dishes and calzones as well as daily specials. (Just be warned that the chef has a heavy hand with the garlic, especially with the daily specials!) In the three and a half years that... More

I've eaten food from this Sal's location twice now, the first as takeout, the second eating in, and the food was significantly better when served fresh (no surprises there). My party was seated quickly, and our waitress was both patient and pleasant. I felt my food was fairly priced, as was my glass of wine -- five of us ate... More

I host a group of business professionals from out of state and each of them were pleasantly shock at outstanding quality of the food and service. Our server Madelein went out of way to make it an excellent experience.

Thanks to Joe at Sals our 7th grade team had a delicious pizza party to end our year! We had an early release so I needed the pizza delivered before Sals even opens. Thirteen yummy pizzas were delivered by 10:45am! The kids said it was the best school lunch they had all year! Sals pizza is the BEST! Thank you... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after traveling all day. The host who greeted me was wonderful, as was the server and the salad and wine I ordered. Next time I'll splurge and get pasta.

I needed a place for a group dinner (16 people) with little notice and Sal's was recommended by my hotel. And it was fantastic!! Joe, the owner, personally took care of us and made me feel like one of the family. Since we were a large group they recommended family style which was perfect. The menu was chef's choice and...
