“Go to Italian Restaurant in Lexington”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

There are not a plethora of restaurants in Lexington, VA a town of 3500 (doubled by the student population of Washington and Lee and Virginia Military Institute). If you're looking for good Italian food, go to Salerno's. They have very good pizzas and an all-you-can-eat spaghetti meal with garlic bread that will leave you more than satisfied and their prices are reasonalble. Our son attends VMI and he and other cadets frequently visit the place to get away from their chow hall on post.
Definitely worth the visit.

“Best pizza in Virginia”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Delicious pizza and service. You have to order at the counter, but the pizza is brought to your table. One of the few restaurants that uses real homemade buffalo mozzarella on their pizza. We will definitely keep Salerno's on our travel itinerary.

“Good food!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a good Italian meal here. The restaurant is more of a takeout type of restaurant as there are just some basic tables and chairs with no decor to speak of. You go up to the counter to place your order. We were happy to find this restaurant as we had spent the whole day driving and needed a nice, quick but tasty meal and Salerno's came through on all counts. Their prices were reasonable also and that was a factor having 4 teenagers with us!! It was a bit tricky getting around Lexington in the dark got us so we were very fortunate to stumble upon this restaurant.

“Great Local Casual Italian Dining”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Salernos is a neighborhood kind of restaurant where a lot of local's go, including university students. However, many out-of-towners come as well as Salerno's has great food and a great casual, home-town atmosphere. I have been many times (although I am not a student) and some of my favorite dishes there include the white pizza, chef salad, homemade clam chowder and tomato soup, penne vodka alfredo w/chicken, and most any of their subs. They serve high quality food and you will not leave hungry.
