“Please, Sal, more space to enjoy your delicious food, please!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

You'll often find Sal himself presiding over the food prep in this tiny mid-island gem. Delicious pizza and Italian food. The restaurant is small, and cramped -- easier for Sal to hold court with his favorite locals. The limited regular menu is usually as good as his specials. There is some outdoor seating, and the pizza line snakes around it on a Friday or Saturday evening. Those in the know come for lunch!

Great find for lunch for me and the hubby. We had no problems with the service, and the food was delicious!

“A little slice of New York in southern Georgia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We arrived at 6pm and waited 45 min for a table to accommodate seven. We were told the food was good (one of the people in our party had been here before) so this wasn't a problem. Once we were seated the waitress informed us that if we wanted pizza it would take about 45 min, but menu items from the kitchen (pastas, steaks, sandwiches, etc.) would be faster. So we ordered appetizers and drinks. We ordered most of the appetizers to share and they were really good. Finally our pizza's arrived (2 large deluxe) and they were so worth the wait. There were plenty of tasty toppings and the sausage was real (sliced from sausage links). Great job guys, we'll definitely be back on our next visit to Brunswick!

“Great Little Hideaway Jewel, Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

My wife & I dined there last night while visiting St Simons for here birthday. Arrived at 7pm and were lucky to get a table right away inside. Greeted by a friendly staff, and there was Sal right in the middle of the oven area tossing pizza dough and smiling/laughing the whole time. Small but cozy little restaurant that's filled with the warm, mouth-watering aroma of Italian cooking. We found the staff very pleasant and service great. I disagree with the previous posts who bad-mouthed the service. We had a great time.

“Food...great, service...awful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I am a local and have eaten at Sal's multiple times. I like the food but the service is terrible. As a former server, bartender and manager of several larger restaurants, I just don't get how these servers are "too in the weeds" to care or give attentive service. And to be "greeted" with nothing more than a half-interested "what do you want to order?"...ridiculous. I'm honestly done with trying to deal with the bad service.
