I needed a place for a group dinner (16 people) with little notice and Sal's was recommended by my hotel. And it was fantastic!!
Joe, the owner, personally took care of us and made me feel like one of the family. Since we were a large group they recommended family style which was perfect. The menu was chef's choice and I couldn't believe the amount of food or the selection he chose - the food just kept coming!!! We had garden salad, fresh bread, chicken Marsala (one of the best I've eaten anywhere and I have traveled extensively), sausage & peppers, eggplant rollatine (meatless which I prefer), penne with tomatoes and garlic, lasagna. If all that wasn't enough next came two gorgeous dessert trays filled with tiramisu,cheesecake, nutella cheesecake which was to die for, cannolli, chocolate cake and Italian lemon cake.
Embarrassed to say I don't know our waitresses name but she was lovely too - and kept up with 16 women without missing a beat.
I would definitely go back to Sal's next time I am in Roanoke. It was a great find in a college town. Any restaurant that can make 16 women happy without a single complaint is a place you don't want to miss out on.
