Saturday was a special day for our son because it was his 19th BD. We also invited a few of his friends to celebrate with us. The restaurant was really busy that day because it was Saturday night. However, we really enjoyed Sal's Restaurant and we have great time there because the owner to helping staffs were very tentative on... More

My experience with the owner, Joe, and his staff were nothing short of great! I was in town for my daughter's lacrosse team (Univ of Cincinnati) to play at VT for a Fall play day. I wanted to cater the tailgate for the team and families that travelled from out of town. Joe was very accommodating and prepared pasta and... More

Visiting VaTech with my son. Food, service, and value was outstanding.. Best Italian food that we've tasted outside of NY and we've traveled all over the US.. If you're ever in Blacksburg eat there and tell Joe that Maureen for Jersey sent you!!

Sal's is the best restaurant in Blacksburg. Even while waiting to be seated, Joe took care of his guests offering pizza and a glass of wine. Great food and atmosphere and at a reasonable price.

We took our grandson to this restaurant for dinner when we visited him at VT. We selected it because of the good Tripadvisor recommendations. This place would never survive as an Italian restaurant in the north. My wife and I ordered Veal parmigiana. Any respectable Italian restaurant would have served a veal cutlet pound to be thin and served with... More

Homemade sauces, bread, salad dressing along with attentive service added up to a very enjoyable meal.

We visited Tech and were so impressed with Blacksburg and VA Tech. Decided to visit Sals because of TA rating and we enjoyed the Charlottesville Sal's. Wife loved her chicken and it was very fresh. Son's cheese pizza was basic and inhaled. My caesar salad with chicken was weak at best. Chicken was prepared ahead of time, cold and very... More

Last night we had the best meal ever,(and I mean ever), in Blacksburg Va. Sal's Italian restaurant is absolutely fantastic. Joe, aka Guiseppi, is a very warm and welcoming host. He alone would be reason enough to come back, but there are two additional reasons. One is Madelaine, the bartender,who pours a great drink and is a great conversationalist. The... More

We recently worked with Joe to plan a business dinner for 35+ people. Joe and his staff were very accommodating. The space was set up perfectly for conversation as we enjoyed dinner. The wait staff was timely in their service; working quickly to satisfy our requests and taking care of beverage refills. To say the portion sizes were generous would... More

In Blacksburg for the weekend - we stopped at Sal's for dinner. We arrived early (just before 5pm) and it was a good idea. We didn't have a wait to be seated, but when we left, the wait was significant. The menu is extensive and we were served warm bread with very good dipping oil which hit the spot. The... More
