“Pizza was delicious, but service was slow.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We arrived at Sal's around 6:45 pm and were seated right away. However, after waiting 10 minutes for someone to wait on us, and noticing that two couples who had arrived before us were being served, I asked who should be serving our table. A waitress arrived shortly after that, and we ordered salad and a pizza. Both were fresh and delicious. Service was slow, but we will probably return again because we liked the atmosphere and the food. Sal's doesn't accept credit cards; cash or debit card only.

“Pretty Good”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Run and owned by an old Italian family for several generations and well established in town. Very popular all year around. GOOD Italian, fair portions and the service is just adequate. Only downer is this place is pretty pricey in comparison to other Italian eatery's in the area. Still, you won't be disappointed.

“You'd be a fool not to like it!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

If you are not picky, two words: MEDETERANIO PIZZA!!! Best pizza I have had in my life, and I have gone to Italy! It has unique ingredients together in a wonderful, no, beautiful slice! The fruits de basco dessert is only sold on specific days because the fruit is shipped directly from Italy that morning. And the rice balls are wonderful to bring home! So worth it!

Weather you order pizza, grinders or a full meal you won't be disappointed. The wait staff is above average and very attentive to need.
