Good NY Style Pizza

Been going here for years when in NYC Soho area. Always consistently good NYC style pizza which I miss living in SoCal but grew up on. Cheese and crust are all good quality. Can't talk for other dishes here as I always eat the pizza. This is not "gourmet" pizza but good quality NY style pizza... read more

We wanted pizza for dinner, but the place we wanted to go had a line down the block. We can upon Sal's and decided to give it a try. The pizza was ok. Not bad, but not great. We ordered 3 pizza and the cheese on 2 didn't seem fully melted. The taste was fine. Service was good.

Little Italy is a tourist trap shell of what it once was--a number of average size Midwest cities have better Little Italy neighborhoods. That being said, I rate Sal's as being a good representative NY pizza experience relative to the neighborhood. Friendly NY style family service and reasonable prices for NYC. Pay attention b/c gratuity is included.

Our waitress was so engaging with the kids asking them how hungry they were and then advised them what to order. I am Italian so I have lots of relatives cooking to compare this to and it was outstanding. What can you do with Chicken Parm? I don't know but all I can say is it was the best I... More

We sat in the front of shop, the pizza was very tasty, crispier than we... More

We stopped in here while traveling NYC in December 2015. We had a large group of 8 people and there was no wait. The back of restaurant opens up to have more space. The restaurant is very "authentic" feel and the greeter at the front door sold us on coming inside. We split two pizzas (pepperoni & 3 meat) they... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
