I was in New York City few days ago and after some days my mother and me were missing a very good italian pizza. One day we saw people eating a good-looking pizza walking down Little Italy, so my mother and me asked for the restaurant and we went to Sal's to have one. We ordered just two Margheritas and...

I was hoping for an authentic Italian food dining experience when we visited Sal's. It was my son's birthday and I hoped to expose him to a taste of Italy. What we got was mediocre pizza, and less than engaging service from the wait staff. It wasn't bad, but it certainly was not what I had hoped for. Our meal... More

After an afternoon of strolling and shopping we came upon this place on Broome St and it was great. Isabella recommended the fried calzone, which they are known for and since we never had one fried we tried it along with a mixed salad. The salad was terrific (lettuce, roasted red peppers, onions, cucumbers, black olives and mozzarella with an... More

We had a variety of things here and found the food to be good. I ordered eggplant which I love and that's exactly what it was eggplant with tomato sauce. I should have read the menu better because I like egg plant Parmesan but this was good. Others had pizza and calzones. As with most places seating for the 6... More

We came to Sal's Little Italy to eat a good pizza. We especially chose Italian restaurant. But it was a big mistake! Pizza was delicious, what I can't say about service! Server almost dropped menu on our table and didn't check our meal not even once! But the server was talking to another table because they were from California and... More

We stopped here 10/1/2016 for a New York style slice and a "Grandma" Slice... Both were fantastic... Nice staff... indoor and outdoor seating.

Really felt like this was a hidden gem that the locals frequent. Reasonably priced slice. The crust was excellent. Nice people too.

Born and raised in Little Italy, I am very particular about where I eat Italian food. If I am in Manhattan, Sal's is my "go to place" for pizza. Their ingredients are always fresh and delicious. What could be better than that? Their fried calzones are awesome and worth a drive from anywhere.

We visited little Italy during the festival of San Gennaro so the everything was very busy with street traders. Sals isn't fancy but we were not disappointed. We both had pizza which my husband said was one of the best he'd tasted( this is praise indeed!) The waitress was nice and the place was busy but not full. Would recommend... More

Went to Sal's (take out counter) on the recommendation of a restaurant in Little Italy and we were not disappointed. As many have said before...The deep fried calzones are to die for. Enzo comes off tuff and gruff, but we managed a smile out of him! This will definitely be a spot we stop at each time we visit NYC!

Neighborhood Profile
Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors from around the globe, especially on summer weekends when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables, cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in for a coffee and a cannoli, or grab a streetside table to take in the scenery over a hearty Italian meal.
