Good food

Ate at Salernos as it was recommended by a local shop keeper. The food was good we each had a slice of pizza, I had a side of meatballs with their homemade bread and my wife had the creamy tomato soup. All the food was delicious. It's not fancy but it's worth trying when in Lexington

We were looking for good pasta and/or pizza and found Salerno's. So disappointed. Really pricey for what you get and for having to order at the counter. Chicken parm was decent and a small portion ($12). My son who always says his pizza is the best said this pizza was OK and did not order another slice. I ordered a... More

Our family of 5 ate outside on the patio. Service was great! Staff was very friendly. And, the food was delicious! We stumbled upon this restaurant and we all enjoyed our meals.

It's in a newer building. Unattractive inside and out. I understand the pasta is good, however. Pizza by the slice, to order.

It's as much a Take-out place as a Dine-in venue, with pizza probably it's best product (skip the pasta, please). On this visit, we ordered a large, 5-topping WELL-DONE pizza for takeout. We picked up a large, cheesy SOGGY pizza, which we ate with knife, fork and many paper towels. The pizza? Crust a 4.0/10.0, Flavor 8.0/10.0, Toppings 5.0/10.0, and... More

There is indoor and outdoor seating and we chose to eat indoors in the casual restaurant. You order at the counter and then sit down and they bring the food to your table. We ordered a small calzone which was huge for $9 and a steak sandwich special ($12) for 2 subs, both entrees were large enough to take home.... More

I truly enjoy this place. I imagine that it is packed during the term. However, during the summer, it is a great place to have the first coffee at eleven and read the newspapers from MaryAnne's bookstore. The people who work here are college students or locals of Lexington. We are all the laidback beautiful people. Personally, I was part... More

The pasta I had - it was so good I forgot the name of it... be prepared to be FULL! It's a great location as well - within walking distance of all of the hotels and mine in particular.

We read the positive reviews for the clam chowder available on Fri/Sat and decided to give this place a try. So glad we did! The chowder was really good and the bread was great. My order was a cup, but it was served in a bowl (made me wonder how big the bowl must be). My wife ordered the calzone... More

We ate here on a lovely May evening and were lucky enough to get a table on the deck outside. We had the margherita pizza and enjoyed it very much. Really liked the thin crust. Food prices were reasonable but the beer was a bit pricey. Staff were all friendly and outgoing.
