It was our first visit. Service began well, Husband ordered lasagna, I ordered a dinner salad, chardonnay, and past in a pink sauce with onion and bacon. Salad and garlic knots was good. Lasagna not so good--bland, tasted old but it was hot. My pasta tasted wonderful but was just lukewarm--probably plated on a cold plate or was left sitting... More

I had monsani with spaghetti and it was rich in flavor and a good portion. The dessert of a sorbet filled white chocolate bon bon which was delectable. Great food and an impressive wine list. Server was Kathryn and she was personal and precise. A great trip to Roanoke with memorable food.

I received a recommendation from my neighbor about the good food at Sal's. A business representative from Richmond was in the area and I suggested that we meet at Sal's. We did. We both enjoyed the experience tremendously. We had a great waitress and a waiter in training. We were there on Monday evening, January 16, 2017. There were not... More

Sal's never disappoints--whether its a quick to-go pizza, a family dinner or a business gathering--the food is always fresh, hot and delicious. If you go during the day they have a sit down buffet. You basically order up to three items at a time and they deliver it to you. Jerry (the owner) and his family are great people and... More

They have a buffet for weekday lunch that is a good way to try different items. What is nice, is that the items are brought to your table by your waiter. Have also ordered from the menu and have been happy with our choices. Many times we'll order their cheesesteaks to go.

We were disappointed that they were "out" of one of the specials on the menu, and a bit suspicious. How could they be out for three days? Was it some frozen thing they purchased from Costco? So we ordered veal Marsala and eggplant parmigiana off the regular menu. Couldn't have been happier. The Marsala dish was one of the best... More

In town on business and the local team always raves about Sals! While not close to our hotel we finally gave it a try. 3 of the four had the lasagna and raved about it. I had the linguini with clams. Clams fresh in the shell very tasty. Linguini cooked perfectly the sauce a bit salty. Dinner included salad and... More

2nd visit and no complaints. The service is friendly, knowledgable, and willing to go two extra miles. We wanted the Crab Ravioli and the server suggested the Lobster Ravioli. Mmmmmm So good. The wine he recommended was spot on. This is my new favorite place. Thank you for a very enjoyable night.
