The wonderful aroma of garlic & baking pizza crust greet you as you walk through the doors of this unassuming little eatery on a quaint street in a lovely little town..... A giant chalkboard lists the menu, and it's hard to just choose one or two items! Upon the recommendation of the counter-girl, I ordered a slice of white pizza.... More

I never miss a week, I love their pizza and the subs are awesome and huge. I eat here so much, one day I had a sub at lunch and on the way home picked up a Pizza and they laughed and asked wasn't I already here that day. Addictive!

Stopped into Lexington on the way to another destination and was really just looking for something to satisfy our hunger. It was an unexpected pleasure to find great pizza in a rural Virginia town like Lexington. You enter into the main open dining room area and order your pizza at a counter where they give you a number to put... More

I wish I had a Salerno's in my town. Good pizza and classic Italian dishes. Nothing fancy but like eating at momma's place on Sunday dinner. Good simple fare, and plenty of it. Pizza is really good as is the Chicken parm.

I went to Salernos last week while in Lexington. My friend and I both got the penne a la vodka and it really was so delicious. The service was great, especially the owner who took time to chat with us and make sure we enjoyed our meal. I would recommend this little place to anyone visiting Lexington.

Terrible customer service, ESPECIALLY from their owner. Called in a delivery order, and the teenager taking it sounded high. Took him about four tries to get a really simple order correct. Food came over an hour late, after I was told it would be 25 mins, tops. Delivery man was rude and the food was cold. Called the restaurant and... More

We are a family owned restaurant and employ teenagers of local professors from Washington & Lee, VMI as well as doctors and other parents form this great city of Lexington. These are outstanding kids and for you to accuse them of being High is VERY WRONG. I never said she scammed us, I said the driver gave her too much... More

There are not a plethora of restaurants in Lexington, VA a town of 3500 (doubled by the student population of Washington and Lee and Virginia Military Institute). If you're looking for good Italian food, go to Salerno's. They have very good pizzas and an all-you-can-eat spaghetti meal with garlic bread that will leave you more than satisfied and their prices... More
