Homelike ambiance and service with some of the best Italian food you could ask for!

Every time we've dined at Sal's we've never been disappointed. The seafood Alfredo, topped off with primo gelato were to die for! Usually enough to take home for another superb meal... Unreservedly recommended-- for families and kids too...

Saw lots of differing reviews, some rated it great and others, not so great. In cases like this we try it and make our own decision! We went very early Sunday evening and were pleasantly surprised! We were seated promptly and ordered a fair priced bottle of quality wine! Our server was Bobby. When Bobby found out we were from... More

I expected more, I ordered calamari as an appetizer and a strombolle as the meal. The sauce for both was outstanding. The calamari was over cooked, which renders it rubbery. The strombolle that should have been filled with meat and cheese, was mostly bread and onion. Excuse my spelling, this is my humble opinion, other dishes my deserve a higher... More

Lunch buffet is unbeatable. Garlic knots the best I have ever tasted. Sevice is very good. Meatballs are deliciously good.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. I love authentic Italian . Have seen their billboard's all over town. The food looked great in the picture's. My husband and I decided to stop there for lunch. They had a lunch buffet that was really reasonably priced at 7.99 I believe. You can pick 3 thing's off the buffet menu at... More

This is the reason why Trip Advisor rocks! We were driving through Roanoke at dinnertime (well, to be honest, it was 8 pm on a Monday night) and used the app to pick a place, based on reviews from actual people, then called for reservations (in 20 minutes!) and got navigation directly to the restaurant. SO EASY! What a delightful... More

Our service left a lot to be desired and slow. The food was over cooked. It didn't taste very authentic.

Oh they have the yummy little garlic bread knots. Fresh, hot oh so good. We always bring food home for another day due to the large servings that I would love to finish there. Oh yes, get the cannoli. Service is quick, always great. Outside tables a plus.

As others have noted, this is in a strip mall but don't let that stop you! The food was impressively good and the service was wonderful. The chicken Marsala was some of the best I've ever had. Portions are generous and the prices are decent. Looking forward to going again!
