we enjoyed our food but it took too long to get it. One waitress for a busy dining room. And she was lovely but she had to do it all! Maybe will try again but they better get more help

We go to Sal's when we want pasta and to watch the news. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for Pasta night. $7.95 for salad bread and your choice of pasta shapes. Wine and beer reasonable. Usually people come and go and the bar is closed off from restaurant, which I like. Wait staff very friendly. They have daily dinner specials that... More

This may not have been the best meal that I ever had but I may have had one of the best waitresses. Sal's is a locally owned restaurant that may have been in business forever. All of the locals go there so you know that the food is good. Pure old time sauce and the meatballs are wonderful. Oh, and... More

OMG! Talk about a hidden gem. Food is to die for. The amount you get is crazy for the price. Staff is nice as can be. Dining area is small but if there is a wait it is well worth it. Wish I could vist eveyday.

Sal's doesn't look like much on the outside and the decor is like circa 1975, but the food is a real gem. Went here on Valentine's Day with the family. Everything was excellent! My wife ordered the veal parm and it was fantastic! I got the meat ravioli and meatballs. Ravioli was so so, but the meatballs were really good.... More

This place has been around forever. I had pasta and meatballs and my hubby had sausage and gnocchi. It was alright. There was way too much sauce on the pasta. The waitress was a very nice lady. Other than that, not much to say about it.

Come to Sals for the best sauce I've found: sauce and meatballs on pasta, lasagna and so on. Can't beat the homemade Italian dressing for a simple salad. Consider this a place to stop for great foods. Don't expect anything fancy; it's not that. Just great food, reasonably priced.
