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.

We ate here for a group meeting and we were very pleased on all fronts. The food was excellent. The service was impeccable. The restaurant was loud enough to be festive, but still quiet enough for everyone at our table to hear what was going on. I highly recommend it. We will return.

First time here. Our friends had eaten here before and it is close to their home. The host was fun,especially when I mentioned that one of our friends was bald and the host was too. Our server, Catherine, proved to be very witty, knowledgeable and engaging. She did not mine that we were waiting for the rest of our party... More

My first visit to this location, the food was great and the service was good. We had a group 12 for dinner. The server handled the group very well. I had veal over pasta, it was covered in red sauce. I will return with my wife for dinner at a later date!

Let me start by saying this restaurant is very clean! It even smells clean! Which is hard to say for a restaurant. It is nicely decorated as well. So why the 3 rating .... Service. Our waitress was nice however she was not attentive. She even told us she forgot about us. Buffet option is great for lunch!

Really good food but service was lacking. Our server must have been busy with other duties in the back as she was rarely seen in the dining room while three or four other servers were frequently seen in the dining room, talking. The hosted forgot to bring our check and card back. Probably spent 20 minutes there longer than necessary... More

I am a frequent patron at Sal's. I usually get outstanding service and the food is excellent. I have lost my debit card before and they were so helpful in terms of letting me come back to pay. I went in today for dinner and experienced the worst service I've encountered anywhere in a long time. I ordered my food... More

Sal's is a hidden gem in Roanoke, VA. Sal is the chef and stays in the cucina where he prepares the best Italian and Sicilian food. It is a local restaurant, and the hospitality and warmth of the greeting upon entering is genuine. If I have an opportunity to come to Roanoke again, I will certainly make sure to come... More

I loved this place! The spaghetti was superb and mouth watering! Noodles were cooked perfectly. They didn't taste like water like Olive Garden's! The decor is lovely. The staff is very friendly! Will go back!

It's hard to understand some of the reviews being so negative, but my husband's and my experience a couple of night ago was very good. Salads fresh as are the dressings, and since we both got pasta with red sauce, I can only speak on that. I loved my angel hair with mushrooms and artichokes, didn't like the sun dried... More
