Great deli style pizzeria. Food was excellent. Pizza slices are pretty large and the calzone is big enough 2 people can eat it. Everything was excellent. We came with a pretty large group and all of our food made it out fast and correct. I will be back !

We dine here on a regular basis. Usually really great food and service. We were planning on branching out from our normal pizza order and get spaghetti. I'm not sure how an Italian restaurant runs out of pasta on a Friday night. So--we went to another restaurant. Salerno's is under new ownership--hopefully, they'll plan better in the future.

We usually do take out from here, while at work. Portions are huge and prices are fair. There is even an outside deck for dining. Friendly staff, and I recommend this to several of the tourists that come into town. You order at the counter, and pick a seat.

Their pizza looked fabulous, but we had calzone. I ordered the small calzone and it was as big as a medium pizza! It was delicious!! I'd definitely return there again.

Salerno is a great place to eat when in Lexington. It is not really expensive and the food choices are good. The staff was friendly and helpful. I ordered two slices of pizza, and realized when it arrived that I should have only ordered one. The pizza slices are huge! The atmosphere is typical of a college town. I always... More

We opened the door and smelled the smell of an Italian Pizza Cafe. It is an open kitchen so you pretty much see what is going on. You order from the counter, pay and then sit to be served (very orderly and fast service), but I needed a spoon to twirl with so had to go back to the counter.... More

The food was soo good but it was a bit pricey. The environment was a bit confusing & "cozy" (nice way of saying a bit cramped).

New owner, confusing new setup, inexperienced staff, increased prices = unpleasant dining in what should be a casual atmosphere = doom in this small town.

Overpriced food, that's the bottom line. It tastes good but it is wayyyyy too expensive. I don't need to be spending $4.50 on a slice of pizza. The food quality is the best of all the pizza places in Lexington but you can find better value elsewhere. They used to have a lunch buffet which was amazing but they did... More

My family and I decided to order food into our hotel room after a loooooong day of travel. Instead of getting the usual chain pizza, we decided to go with this local place. We didn't order anything complicated, just salads and burgers. We didn't get a time for delivery, were just told they would "See us soon." Soon apparently means... More
