You know this is damn good pizza when the local Little Italy New Yorkers recommend it. Absolutely right. Perfect NY flavor. The owner was speaking to a lady in Sicilian and I knew what he was saying, which he didn't realize obviously. Hah! :-) This is the place for pizza.

My wife and I were on a walking tour and given 20 minutes for lunch. We walked past several restaurants and consider them but continued on our way and after walking about a block met one of the Triolo brothers outside their restaurant. He invited us to try the pizza. We looked at the business and were impressed. We ordered... More

Great pizza/calzone here. Also the fried mozzarella was awesome. Not expensive but great food and great service.

With so many choices in Little Italy, I asked a waitress in another restaurant where was the best pizza, she recommended Sal's. I'm glad that she did. It was the best pizza I had ever had. I ate four slices, something I have never done in my life. Our waitress was entertaining. A true New Yorker.

Sal's is on Broome Street in Lower Manhatten, it's a small family run (or at least feels that way) restaurant serving excellent Italian food. We enjoyed the Pizza which was exceptionally well made, good value for money, friendly staff, and a table on the sidewalk to eat and watch the world go by. Very enjoyable afternoon in the sun.

I visited Sals when I was in New York to get the taste of a real New York Pizza. Absolutely wonderful - true original taste!

We were trying to find a place we could just grab a slice in Little Italy and came upon Sal's. It's a sit-down place but also has slices available and three little tables for slice-buyers (for others, there's a dining room in the back or tables out front in nice weather). Crust and cheese were great, but the spinach used... More

Perfect to stop in and grab a slice of pizza and head out on your way. Not greasy and yummy. You will be offered Sicilian or thin crust, and Sal's has a wide selection of toppings.

Thank Shrinette

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
