Large selection, great service, very good food

Sal's came highly recommended and did not disappoint. The selection was surprisingly large and the food tasted very good. They were very busy on a Friday evening, yet the service was prompt and attentive.

You won't regret going to Sal's. The food is extremely good, with nice presentation. The service tends to be excellent. The owner is very friendly and asks me how I'm doing every time I see him.

The owner, Joe, was great. Greeted us when we walked in, and checked on us at our table. The light Italian dressing on the salad was exceptional. The spinach ravioli was ok. The tomato sauce was pasty and too salty for my taste.

We have tried it twice and both times i have been highly disappointed. Very popular place... More

Came into Sal's after a graduation at Virginia Tech, had no reservations, but we were seated within 30 minutes! Amazing. The food was wonderful, just like the 2 or 3 other times we've eaten here. Great Italian Food!

They have something for everyone... from scratch pizza for the kids, mussels and calamari as appetizers for the seafood lovers (that's me), and a large variety of selections. They greet you with delicious warm bread appetizer to dip in garlicky olive oil. I've gone there just my daughter and I, with a large family, and many times with a group... More
