A small restaurant with great pizza. Selection if varied. Crust was really good. Their Chocolate cake was wonderful for dessert.

Had this pizza delivered- it was amazing. It wasn't saturated in sauce so you tasted the toppings. I ordered the Lombardo - loved it ! Delivery was an hour but it was well worth the wait.

We traditionally have a pizza on a Saturday night for supper...mostly the frozen variety taken home and placed in the oven. 99% of the pizzas are quite good. However, this Saturday, Oct.1st., we decided to go all out and order a take out from Salvatores. This we did and had the Pizza alla Greca. We found the pizza most disappointing...very... More

I have not been down this way for decades. However, all is changed for the best. I was going down memory lane to when I had the best pizza on this street when I was a kid...Tomasos. I was wrong...this is the best pizza on the street HANDS DOWN! Nice to see the tradition live on :)

Considering the numerous positive reviews, we had high expectations with this restaurant. We were extremely disappointed. We waited 25 minutes to be told that our pizzas burnt. The server told us they were sorry, and that our pizzas would be replaced and 'amazingly free'. Our pizzas finally arrived. They are equivalent to the pizzas you find at Domino's... meh. The...

We showed up here to meet some friends for dinner. There was a lineup of people waiting out the door, which I took to be a very good sign. They told us we would have to wait 15-20 minutes for a table, so we did. For some reason these guys do not take reservations, which I found a bit odd.... More

This was a suggestion from a friend and I have never tasted a masterpiece like this. The flavor, the crust, the toppings and sauce combine to give you an extraordinary creation. I am counting the days before I get to visit Halifax again. This is at the top of the list
