Went to Sal’s while visiting Williamsburg. It is an enormous space surprisingly it does not feel loud and crowded because of its design. It also had a number of spaces/tables for larger parties. Unfortunately the food is just mediocre- not terrible but nothing special at...all The chicken cacciatore was nothing special and the salmon was bland and not warm when served. The best dish was the bruschetta which was quite good. At least the prices were reasonableMore

We were told this restaurant had some of the best pizza in Williamsburg so we gave it a try we’re from the Northeast more specifically Connecticut and New York city where the pizza quality is earth shattering We weren’t expecting It to rival what we...were used to but we were sorely disappointed to find the pizza was average at best- nothing unique about the dough or toppings so I would avoid this restaurant for pizza if you’re used to high-quality pies from up northMore

Food is unbelievably good. Their menu is huge, with lots of Italian specialties, and seafood items. I had the stuffed flounder which was a special the night that we visited. It was terrific. Our party of 14 included six adults, six teenage boys, and two...little ones. We had a single waiter manage our entire order, which included multiple separate checks. He did an amazing job, I wish I could remember his name he did nit get frazzled once. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal and that is really impressive. Highly, highly recommend this place. Amazing food, terrific service, and great prices as well.More

Best Italian food I’ve ever had in the US, and yes counting St. Louis. If you’re lucky you’ll get waited on by “mamasan” whose amazing service skills are worthy of 35% tip minimum. Dining in you’ll want pasta, pork or steak plus dessert. Get a...pizza to go, trust me you’ll want it later and Sals may be closed. You can’t go wrong with this place. We found it on our honeymoon and come back every year we can.More

Was immediately impressed with the food and service here - very friendly place with authentic Italian food! My family and I dined here with a brief wait for a table. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal and we felt the place deserves 5 stars!...We had eggplant with ziti (delicious), veggie lasagna (perfecto), Calzone (the best) and the bread was so good!! The only thing that didn't go over well were the fried zucchini sticks, but otherwise, I highly recommend this place for Italian food!More

Wow, this place is top notch Italian. Temperature controlled wine storage room. Pasta type selection was great and they accommodate change. Place is huge and can accommodate groups. I can’t say enough about the food. Our family group of 6 had a wide selection of...veal, chicken, a burger and a pizza. It was all wonderful and enjoyable experience. Two big tour buses had reserved a big private room and there was a private entrance for that banquet room so nearly 100 people didn’t have to stream in the restaurant. Ambiance and decoration was very nice. This was another local recommendation for Williamsburg area. We were so happy we went there.More

On Easter Sunday I was at work across the street from this restaurant and I called to ask for delivery. He says they don't deliver. I told him where I was located but because of my job I was not allowed to leave the property,...would he just come to the corner and I would just run out to the street and get it from him. He says he doesn't deliver. I told him who I was, that my husband and I were in there often. He's greek, my husband is Greek, he remembered who we were, but he doesn't deliver. we even talked about how it was unfortunate that both of us were working on Easter Sunday, but he doesn't deliver. I begged him to just come to the end of his parking lot I'll run out meet him and run back to work, just as long as I can clearly see my property. He says he doesn't deliver. A few hours later a friend of mine offers to pick up some lunch for me. Sal's had a two Pizza special. A small cheese and I believe a medium specialty pizza for like $20. I called to place this order I asked if a gluten-free pizza would count as a specialty he says no. So I ordered a cheese and a Hawaiian pizza minus the ham. He says we make no substitutions. I told him that I didn't want to substitute anything I just wanted him to remove the ham - I'm a vegetarian. He said "no, we do it for one, we have to do it for everybody. The specialty pizza is the way it is." Okay fine. He failed to mention that he had two vegetarian specialty pizzas that he could have offered me instead. So I ordered a small cheese pizza and a medium cheese and pineapple pizza and do you know how Karma works? My two pizzas came out cheaper than the special he was offering. Had he been just a little flexible and really thought about it, he could have made a little more money on this order. Fast forward a couple weeks later he comes over to my place of business looking for any people who might need a second job, because he needs staff at his restaurant. Again, see how Karma works? He has absolutely lost a customer in my husband and I. His food is good yes but I can get good food anywhere I don't need to come to a phone you restauranteur for that!More

Ordered small extra cheese with half mushroom. The menu says 10.95 for the pizza and 1.25 per extra topping and somehow it amounted to over 16.00. The sauce was almost non existent and the flavor was on the average side. It was fresh and hot...but not worth the price.More

This time I had the angel hair pasta with meatballs and tomato sauce, and it was delish. The sauce was perfect without even a hint of the bitterness sometimes found in sauce made with too much tomato paste. My husband had angel hair pasta with...sausage and green peppers, and he LOVED it. Great place, we'll keep coming backMore

We got to the restaurant late at night, not long before closing, and the restaurant had had a busy day. Yet, we were welcomed in as we were part of their family and as if they were not near closing. We were a party of...10, who had traveled several hours to get to Williamsburg. We were treated very well and attended personally by the owner, who recommended great wine and food. The entire family was very happy with the quality of the food and the service we received. We were the only ones in the restaurant as they stayed open extra hours for us, and not rushing us in any way and the time we passed there was great. Highly recommended!More
