“Not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

We had high hopes, but left disappointed. No gluten free pasta. Avoid the burgers, greasy and hard buns. The chicken pastas, pizza and salad were fine. Calamari appetizer came out cold and tasted of old cooking oil.

The manager Patrick is really a hands on guy and is there to make sure you really enjoy your meal. Service was excellent and have eaten there several times. Always good!

“Loved the lasagna served on the patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

When the weather permits I enjoy dining on the patio of any restaurant or cafe that has one available. Sal's is just a stones throw from Bulls and Bones restaurant and sports bar both across the street from where I was staying at the Red Carpet Inn. Sal's offered great food and service. Sal's has a warm and inviting decor and I enjoyed their patio dining as well. Best Italian dining in the Blacksburg area.

“Good Food, Friendly Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

The food is good Italian cuisine and the atmosphere is very friendly. It is also family oriented with the kids getting a fresh piece of pizza dough to play with while waiting on their meal. A fun time to be had by all.
