A word from Sal's Little Italy
Sal's was established in 1975 by a southern Neapolitan family from Italy. Since then they have kept their Neapolitan culinary traditions alive in the heart of Little Italy in New York City.

The secret of their great tasting cooking is simply by making every ingredient homemade and selecting every item personally.
In all these years Sal's has pleased people from all around the world and they all appreciated the Italian cooking fine art. Come enjoy our famous pizza & calzones, delicious pastas and specialty items such as Pollo alla Sal's or Veal Paillard.

In the years to come Sal's is looking forward to meeting their children. And the tradition goes on...

    We wanted a restaurant in little Italy that had authentic Italian so we booked on open table. When we arrived we were hesitant to enter the restaurant but when we did we were taken through what appeared to be the kitchen to a table in a small unappealing room. As we walked through we saw Barilla Boxed Pasta. We immediately decided to leave.

    Not a good experience We expected a nice romantic restaurant and we got a old outdated fast food pizzeria wich looks like had no renovatons sincev1950 With a absolutly non inviting vibe after opentable reviews looked a 5 star restaurant wich in fact is a.2 star at best very very very disapointing and the pasta were the worst pasta we ever had Bed bed bed

    This was a bad experience, I do not recommend anyone to go to this restaurant. The waiter was rude, poor service and food. There are hundred of other pizza restaurants with better service and food to choose from i NY.

    Sal's sons have keep the tradition of friendly hospitality. Our party of ten family members had lost a new stuffed toy on the subway and a "Good Samaritan" took it to Sal's where they had heard we were having dinner! What a surprise! The owner encouraged our youngest grandsons to finish their two huge meatballs which they did! It was a fun loving experience and everyone's plates were emptied.

    Sal's was a great find! I bring my art students to NYC from Virginia every Spring and love being able to book a large table. The owner and wait staff were extremely accommodating and so friendly. Our food was delicious (especially the Bruschetta)and timely so that we could get out and see more of the Big Apple! Thanks Sal's!

    On my visit to Sal"s the food was just ok. In my case the meatballs were dry and the sausage was over cooked. The chicken parm was just ok. I don't think I will come back because thier are many other option in this are which are better as a repeat experience

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/30/2013
    When we were greeted at the door, we were told that there was a $25 minimum per adult because it was Saturday night and we were a party of 12 (of course this is not mentioned in any information on Open Table). Needless to say that set the tone for the dinner. The food was good, but nothing special. Next time we will try to find a more authentic, warmer restaurant in Little Italy to spend our money at. If you just want pizza, this place is fine.

    Good little spot, was confusing at first when we walked in, thought it was more of a "slice of pizza" place, but there was adequate seating in the back. Was slow for a Saturday night, and our food was ordered and ready in great time. My girlfriend ordered penne vodka, and I ordered the pizza, of course. The pizza was your traditional pizza pie, thin crust, slightly burnt. I thought I was getting the more traditional chucks of mozzarella, sauce, etc. but instead it was a regular pie. The penne vodka was great, very saucy and flavorful. Their wine selection was more geared towards bottle vs. glass, but not that big of a deal. We spent $40 with tip, which included 2 glasses of red, the 10" pie, and the penne vodka. Great meal, great

    Loved Sal's! Very laid back, very Italian ambiance. The pizza was delicious, as well as the zucchini fries and fried mozzarella. Service was awesome. If you're looking for great Italian for a great deal, and awesome service, come to Sal's!
