Let's just say that when we have out of town guests that want to experience the Pizza Capital of the World- we ALWAYS take them to Salerno's. It is the best pizza around!!!!!!!

As a few of the places in town, this one is a bit like stepping back in time. It's an old style bar/restaurant...not a lot of atmosphere, but pretty good family style food, especially the pizza (IF you like Old Forge style that is...it's not for everyone). As many of the old places in this town, Salerno's has its followers... More

This restaurant had one of the best pizza's around the area. They have become very inconsistent, but it is still a good night out for very reasonable prices. Menu is mainly bar food but there are some dinner meals. drinks are good prices. Service can be an issue if they are busy as the staff is small but very good... More

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
