Family friendly traditional Italian restaurant

The kids got a menu sheet to color, crayons, and perhaps best of all, some pizza dough to play with while we waited for our meal. The food was delicious! The portions were... read more

Sal's was great! Joe and his staff did an excellent job communicating prior to the arrival of our large group. The food was GREAT and everything was ready for a group of over 30 people upon our arrival. We will be back again!

Not sure if pizza came from Italy or not, but this pizza is the best, especially the pepinos', you can make it half with Hawaiian, so you combine sweet with spicy

I like the local Italian restaurants here, they are all pretty good (I'm talking about Luigi's or Carlo's and not the chain restaurants). Sal's is closest to me, so that's where I go. The food is excellent, there's not a parking problem and there's Italian background music playing while you dine. What's not to like and why bother going somewhere... More

Went here for our company Christmas party and was excellent. The calzone I ordered was awesome and was a large enough portion for two meals.
