Appetizers were fine, service was superb. That's where the good ended... We had a panzerotti, stromboli, and a small Hawaiian pizza. All 3 were lacking significant flavor (little or no traditional spices, crust tasted like bread instead of pizza crust). When we asked if there were spices available to add after the fact, we were simply offered to either comp... More

Not just a pizza place. Very large choice of pastas, also calzone and other Italian dishes. Quick service and very friendly staff.

Earlier in the day we were on a walk in Plainfield and saw this place. At dinner time we thought about trying them out. It's a family owned restaurant and a lot of locals eat here. Great food. Most of the serving staff are young, but they seemed to be trained well and knew how to take care of customers.... More

We had a nice dinner here recently while visiting family. I had the ravioli which was very good. My husband had chicken fettuccine. Both were good. We have had the pizza in the past and it was good. Nice atmosphere. Waiters were hustling.

It's pretty much just an average pizza but large. I can't think of anything special about it. The crust was just average, the sauce is average, the cheese was ok. The pepperoni were typical. The ham was the annoying minced ham type instead of thin slices. The sausage was decent. It is just an all around very average pizza where... More

We had a very good dining experience at this establishment recently. Everything we had (garlic rolls / pizza) was served hot and fresh. The small pizza we ordered was more than the 2 of us could eat and we took home 3 slices!

We visit this restaurant once a year when we are in Plainfield. The quality of the food has not waivered. They have improved the atmosphere and the servers seem to be happier. The bread is great with the accompanying olive oil for dipping. The portions are plentiful and served hot. Everything seems to be made fresh, not the canned stuff... More

We heard some rumors about poor service before visiting, but in two visits to Sal's we have never had any issues. The hosts are friendly and the wait staff is attentive. For an appetizer I would highly recommend the garlic rolls. They are delicious and inexpensive. The pepperoni-stuffed breadsticks taste very good but are a little pricey for the portion... More

We ate here after a funeral that was held across the street. There were 12 of us. They told us it would be around 20 minute wait. As soon as the tables could be put together, they got them ready and we were seated earlier than what they mentioned. The waiter immediately got our drink order and came back for... More
