Ranked #322 of 463 Restaurants in Santa Barbara
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: In the duel between Sal's and Rusty's in Santa Barbara, Sal's Pizza is definitely the winner, even with thin crust. Most of the business is take-out, but stop by and experience a place with character. You can add fresh garlic to your pizza for no charge, which is great! The cheese is wonderful, too. Even if you love deep dish pizza, give Sal's a try - it is the best in Santa Barbara.

“Good Italian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is a neat little restaurant off the main drag of State Street. The food was good (although my lasagna was a little too salty for me) and the location was nice. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Since it was a warm day, we sat inside but there were lots of windows to people watch from inside. We got a lot of food so I had another meal. The staff was very friendly, service was good and it was a good value.

“Hit the Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Our group of four had been up in the hills above Santa Barbara all day and found ourselves looking for dinner about 6 pm on a Saturday night. We wanted to avoid crowds and touristy areas so one of our group remembered this place from when he lived in SB years ago. Fortunately it was still there and not crowded when we arrived. Apparently most patrons order delivery or to go, which is wise since seating and parking is limited. My husband and I ordered the Feta Pizza and it was very good with nice slices of tomato, fresh basil, mozzarella cheese and feta cheese. I liked the thin crust and it was perfectly done. We seated ourselves in one of two booths and ordered our meal at the counter. The meal was then delivered to our table.

“Best delivery on the Eastside!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

First off let me state the obvious, Sal's makes a great NY style pizza! That being said you would figure that would warrant the obligatory delivery order once a month. What you don't count on are the great pasta dishes (Cajun Chicken Pasta) or phenominal burgers which will surely force you to add their number to your speed dial. The only negative is that their parking is a pain so plan on either delivery or walking there.

“Our family pizza fix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

When I left NY, I didn't expect to find a good slice of pizza again, but Sal's makes me happy: they make a really great pie!
Any combination of toppings we've tried so far have all been delicious; service is quick and dependable (we call in and pick-up ourselves) and it's an affordable dinner too.
