Great Place to Eat!

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

The Blacksburg, VA location does an amazing job at giving great customer service and serves great food. My "normal" order consists of garlic knots as a delightful appetizer. These have a great flavor and you can not go wrong ordering these. The main course of my selection is the meat calazone. I do not think you can go wrong with... More

Our son graduated from Virginia Tech this past weekend. I contacted Joe at Sal's last summer to make a reservation for a large party on the night of 5/15. He was very accommodating and put us on the book for that night. He called the week before the reservation to confirm. The table was ready on time when we arrived... More

We had a great pizza, best pizza in the New River Valley! We also shared a calzone which was also great! The menu allows you to customize your calzone just like you do your pizza.

This was a bitter sweet dinner at Sal's. Our son graduated this weekend from Virginia Tech. We do not know when our next visit to Blacksburg will be but we knew we needed to have our last dinner at Sal's. We have been having our family dinners at Sal's for the past 4 years. Every visit we were welcomed by... More

Went in during peak time and a very polite guy named joe told us it would be a 15 minute wait. Went to a bar for about 30 minutes and came back to an open table. Awesome service and very nice people. The delicious food was just icing on the cake. Its my favorite restaurant in Blacksburg and I have... More

We went to Sal's on a lark as we were looking for some Italian food. First, the place was packed with folks waiting to get in, which was a good sign for us. While we waited, Sal himself brought out pizza for those waiting to snack on. Very nice. After getting seated Sal again came over, asked me by name... More
