The pizza was delicious and the service was super quick. We would definitely come back here. It's a Friday night, but they are very well staffed and efficient.

Love the white pizza!!! Best in PA and beyond. There is a bar with very nice wooden booths. Also a separate dining room. Nothing fancy, just great food and friendly service. Who could ask for more?

This is a difficult review. Old Forge is a small town with multiple pizza stops that bills itself as a pizza capital. Each restaurant has its own style and flavors. We were told that these restaurants were world class pizza places. Sadly, that was not our experience. Our waitress, Maryann, was great. And introduced us to Salerno's style of square... More

Want authentic "local" food? Eat here. Want a dinner 'show?' Go somewhere else. Great food. NO PRETENSE. A true 'local' experience.

They say that Old Forge, PA is a "Pizza Capital." We can argue about which city, state, etc. has the best pizza but Forge pizza can be very, very good. Personally, I think it's the light crust that makes it different and enjoyable. Anyway, Salerno's is one of the best spots (among many) in Old Forge to give it a... More

We tried this place on a whim and we were not disappointed with the food. It was a delight to eat home made pasta. They make it fresh daily and should not be missed. I take it this is a local bar for many. The clientele seemed very comfortable being there. The language of the locals was quite course and... More

I have gone to Salerno's for years before I moved away from Old Forge. I am only 30 minutes away. My husband and I decided to go on a Saturday night. We have been going back every Saturday. It is so great. The service is great. Prices are beyond reasonable. But it is the pizza that is the star. Light,... More

Great food and ample portions. Waitresses get to know you by name. Old Forge style pizza is a specialty that you with love or hate. I love it and Salerno's serves some of the best.

We wanted to try Old Forge style pizza, so we hit this place up. There is a small bar and then a dining room in the back. We finally got to order (after at least a 10 min or so wait, and it was uncrowded at 12 noon), and then it took another half hour for our two slices, errr... More
