Learned of this great Italian place from trip advisor and its reviewers. Thanks guys! Real made-from scratch Italian home cooking with great variety of dishes. Did delicious vegetarian sauce on whole wheat pasta for me and carefully salt-free for my wife.

I'm giving Sal's 5 stars for two reasons alone: Alfredo and clams in white sauce. Two Italian American staples done surprisingly well out in a rural location like this. I'll be back for both of more as soon as my waistline allows.

We had a great time at Sal's Italian Bistro. They are happy to cater to vegetarians and were nice enough to customize our order to our needs. Their salad was phenomenal and the servers were so friendly; even though they were mobbed with Memorial Day visitors.

Stopped by for a late night Friday dinner. Service was good, the spinach potato soup was very flavorful, but the main dishes (lasagna and veal cacciatore) were just slightly above average. Points for large portions. I will give it another try when I am in the area again.

We always take visitors to Sal's for the extensive menu, tasty and plentiful food, good service, and a chance to meet Sal. He makes the best lemoncello and when he asks how your meal was, he truly wants to know what you thought.

I was surprised this restaurant comes highly recommend. I was very disappointed with the quality. I did not feel that the food tasted like the Italian food I always knew, being raised in an Italian household. I ordered the vegetable lasagna. It was mostly lasagna noodles and peas, with some carrots and broccoli with melted mozzarella cheese on top. I... More

Not fast food and a good place to relax! A local favorite where Sal is often seen in the dinning area greeting regular patrons and making friends with new ones! Servers are friendly and work hard to accommodate guests. Enjoy lunch here often; salads are fresh, varied and satisfying. Bistro sub and steak and cheese are tasty. The supreme pizza... More
