Best clam chowder!

On Fridays and Saturdays they have the BEST clam chowder. You can pair it with a sandwich, or its great as a standalone. They load you up with foccaccia bread with the soup, which is great as well. They have good pasta, panini, pizza, and their altenburger is good too! I don't think you can... read more

We had to call four times before we got someone on the phone. Food was expensive (a to go order of a house salad and 3 pieces of pizza was $25!).

we found this Resturant 4 years ago and never miss a chance to eat there when we have to visit Lexington. Today we had a cup of clam chowder and split a cheese steak sub. The soup was amazing, I should've gotten a bowl and not had the sandwich. So thick and chunky, with lots of clams and seasonings. They... More

This place was so good that I felt compelled to write my first review on TripAdvisor! I had the beef cheesesteak sub and my friend had the meatball sub. They have pizzas, calzones, subs and it al looks great! I live 30 minutes north and will be back frequently.

Whenever we visit here there is always a trip to salernos. We've had most of the menu and all items are worth getting. Last night I had the Nate special and loved the sauce, which is a bit spicy. The bread here is fantastic especially on the hot subs. Great place for a family meal. It can get crowded so... More

what a great pizza pie at this little Italian eatery. On a quaint little street in downtown Lexington, this place has the feel on New York City -but with nicer people. We had the Salerno Supreme and it was a race to see who could get to the last piece first. Garlic bread also a casualty of our visit. The... More

We have eaten at Salerno's on numerous occasions while in Lexington visiting our son at VMI. In fact, this is one of the only places we will eat in Lexington because we know the food is always good. We've had both the various subs (Ham & Swiss cheese, the Turkey & Provolone cheese, Beef cheesesteak) and pizza. Every time, the... More

While recently taking a town tour of Lexington, VA, my wife and I decided to find a nice little restaurant for lunch before resuming or trip. We walked around historic Lexington checking menus and cuisines of the various restaurants on the main streets. We kept walking because it was a pleasant day, and soon wandered by what looked to be... More

stopped in for pizza and were so happy we did. The food was excellent and the service was fast and friendly. Cool college vibe in the middle of Lexington.
