“Solid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Consistently good with pleasant service. The chicken and veal dishes are dependable, and the eggplant rolitini is wonderful when it's available. Excellenet tomato sauce.

“Excellent lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

I have eaten here many times due to close proximity to the office. Over the years, food and service has been hit or miss. However, this last visit was right on the money. We had a large group and the service was very favorable. Food was excellent, fresh and plentiful. The spinach and strawberry salad was very tasty. Served with plentiful amount of walnuts and feta cheese. Everyone raved about their dishes and they all looked excellent.

“Adequate, but not "can't wait to go back"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Stopped in on a whim as we were in the area. Service was very pleasant, but very slow. Bread was fresh. Cream of mushroom soup had good flavor but little to no mushrooms or body, and it was served in a coffee cup, which was rather off-putting. Hubby's salad was fresh but no personality. Veal Saltimbocca was very tender, but portion was very small and veal was smothered in smoked motzerella, which dominated the dish. Hubbie's chicken with prosciutto was "ok", sauce was a bit mysterious, but I could have made is at home. Portion of restaurant was blocked off for a private party; however, to get to the ladies ands men's rooms one had to enter the party and fight one's way through an overcrowded area, all the while getting the evil eye from those guests for walking through a private party. Bill was about $50 for two entrees and iced teas (no appys, desert or coffee). No liquor license. Ok, but nothing to rave about. I was disappointed.

“Our whole family loves Sal Deforte's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We have been going to Sal Deforte's since they were in Chambersburg. It's definitely different from the burg since they've changed from fine dinning only, and added a selection of casual fare, but it's still quality food with a warm personal atmosphere. We have had many family parties, dinners & lunches there, and it's always good food, friendly service, and you can't beat the price.
