GREAT!!

Great food and service! One of my favorite places to eat. I try and eat here a couple of times a month and have been doing so ever since they opened several years ago.

We were warmly greeted at the door. Pleasant, helpful waitress. Food was authentic Italian. We started with the fried calamari - lightly breaded, perfectly fried and we knew it was freshly cooked because it was so hot! Entree prices include salad and side of pasta. I had calamari arrabiatta. It was perfectly seasoned - not too hot, just perfectly seasoned.... More

My husband and I went there for lunch. I had no less than three employees walk past me as I stood by the front desk without saying a word. We were seated outside on the patio as requested. The service was a little slow, but very friendly. The food is good, but just okay. We had the lunch sit-down buffet.... More

Love Sal's! Usually get pizza but other food is great. White pizza with bacon and without broccoli is to die for! Salads are huge and fresh. Garlic knots amazing!

We have had so many dinners at Sal's and have NEVER been disappointed. From Pizza to delicate veal dishes, everything is fabulous. The garlic knots are so tasty. You will be greeted pleasantly and have great service. Need a wine selection? They will be happy to make a recommendation. The desserts are fabulous, if you have room!!

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
