We were in Edinburg for dinner one night after visiting friends in the area. We basically looked at Trip Advisor for a little advice on a nice place for dinner. Sal's Italian Bistro popped up, and BOY WERE WE LUCKY! What a GREAT place! The staff was friendly and helpful. They had a great looking menu and a bunch of... More

This is a great Italian restaurant. The menu offers a good variety of authentic made from scratch Italian foods. Prices are very reasonable and the servings sizes are very large, I have always had to get a to go box for leftovers. If the restaurant isn't very busy, Sal himself will usually stop by and visit your table.

Delicious lunch while antique shopping today. My husband had the luncheon buffet. Many delicious choices! I had the Mediterranean Salad, wonderfully tasteful! Waitress was very pleasant and helpful with our inquires about some of their dishes. Great atmosphere and bathrooms were clean!

We love going to Sal's, you're guaranteed a delicious meal! One of the few good restaurants in our area. The pastas are wonderful and we always get the calimari! We have traveled a lot, and my husband orders calimari everywhere, but Sal's is the best! Hardly any breading, lemony with pepper, so delicious!

We have eaten at Sal's many, many times over the years. It has always been good and is one of our favorite restaurants. I hope today was just an off day, as we were both disappointed with our meals. My wife had the caesar salad with chicken. Just plain romaine lettuce with a little dried out chicken, a whole uncut... More

True Italian served up in a quaint town with super nice servers.. It was actually better than any of the Italian food we went on to eat in NYC. Who knew.... LOL Combine it with a stay at the Edinburg BnB, and you have the perfect weekend getaway.

Our party of four enjoyed a delicious dinner on July 3, 16. Our son had a 12" pizza, I had a hearty half-slab of ribs that came with a big baked potato and tossed salad with a mix of lettuces and no iceberg, and a delicious homemade blue cheese dressing, my niece had an enormous serving of linguine topped with...

The beautiful Shennedoah valley...no trip complete without a meal at Sals. The gem in the tiny Mayberry like village of Edinburgh. Delightful authentic Italian cuisine ..Sal is the man behind the home made pasta dishes and THE best mussels ever. I never pass up the opportunity to have a meal with friends at this little gem ..

Went here for Father's Day brunch. The calamari is excellent, no dipping sauce needed. I had a trout over pasta with tomatoes and clams. Excellent dish. Between the calamari and the fish I had more than enough for two meals. Very generous portions. But one work of advice. You must love garlic as they add a lot to every dish!
