Since we are American by birth (and one of us is from NY), we do love Sal's Pizza and have eaten at the Queen Street location pretty much since it opened. We have tried the Takapuna location twice, and unless they changed, probably wouldn't be...More

After having heard mixed reviews for Sal's we decided to try them for lunch and we weren't disappointed. Huge sized pizza slices and yummy garlic knots along with friendly service and parmesan cheese shakers on the tables made for a pleasant lunch.

Ordered the pepperoni over the phone and it was great. I't had the whole wood fired lovely slightly charred crust and we just gobbled it up despite someone being shocked at how big it was. Not that we had left overs but remember that if...More

Love the American 'sloppy' style pizza. Sal's does not disappoint in this respect. Hot and freshly cooked American style Pizza is amazing. The tangy tomato sauce and slightly spicy Pepperoni is to die for. The best pizza in Auckland. Love the Pepperoni wheels with Marinara...More

There is a lot of hype surrounding this place; no doubt their marketing department has been busy. There is not a lot to say about them except the pizzas are very large, with slices that are way too big. There is a distinct lack of...More
