Sal's has the best pizza and that's from someone used great pizza from Northeast/New York area. Great Italian food, great service and good prices. "Joe' is the heart and soul of the place so be sure to say 'Hi' when you go.

My husbands meat calzone had 3 pepperonis and hardly any sausage. I'm on a restricted diet and got grilled chicken salad. The chicken was so dry I just ate a bit and left the rest. Had been pretty good the last time we came here. Not very busy this eve don't know why they couldn't grill a chicken breast.

Have eaten here many times, but this one among the best! Baked ziti is superb as is the pizzas! I'm never disappointed with a meal here and the owner does a great job of giving back to the community!

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

Had a pleasant experience at Sal's. We were there with a group we did not know well, so it was a good choice. Typical Italian restauarant menu. Our veal marsala and fettucine alfredo were well made. The wine list was good.

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
