I like this restaurant. They have an area for kids to play. Across the street is the El Peñon Park, which is worth a visit. They have very good tomato sauce and they sell it as take out.

A true napolitan calzone. Delicious. We also had the very highly recommended thick French fries with Neapolitan sauce. Service was great. Always delicious

A very good italian menu, firewood oven. One of the best are their coarse potatoes with marinara sauce, don't miss them! Customer service is very good, feel free sometimes to over tip. The roasted spiced chicken is my favorite, it's delicious! Calzone pizza is excellent as well.

We were not allowed to sit outside when we arrived for diner. They could only serve us inside, but inside was nobody and decoration was terrible. Finally we had pizza somewhere else 20m from there

The pizza calabrese was nice, not the best I've ever had but at least all ingredients were fresh. We also had the Mediterranean pantalone, which was also nice but there is so much dough compared to the filling that you're pretty much full half way through. Still, this restaurant is a must for pizza lovers in Cali.

We had apple pie for dessert and that was... More

Salerno is famous for the "pizza pantalon" and their chicken and chips with neapolitan sauce... Almost everyone I know love Salerno or find it as a very good option for a weekend lunch (also dinner). I share their opinion but I always prefer other restaurants for any of these options (pizza, pasta, chicken...)

Best italian food in cali. A traditional place with no luxuries but with great food. Service is average. The best pizza and the best fried chicken in cali. Try also the bug french fries with pasta saise, the canelones And the chuleta. The traditional food made the difference for these place.
