Since 1977, Sal's Little Italy has been the premier NYC Little Italy pizzeria and Southern Italian comfort food restaurant.

Sal's Little Italy remains same family owned/operated by the Triolo family and is well-known for the famous fried calzone, classic Neapolitan NYC pizzas and family recipe comfort food specialities such as chicken marsala, and pasta e fagioli.

By 2012, Sal's Little Italy popularity grew, and Sal's moved to an expanded location at the corner of Broome & Mulberry Streets. The current location is an expanded upfront pizzeria separate from a 60 seat dining room, set in a casual exposed brick interior.

    Disappointed in our experience at this restaurant. I took my niece and nephew so they could experience “little Italy” sinning. I received my mushroom pizza (with canned mushrooms; not fresh) 15 mins before they received their entrees. My niece politely asked for parmesan and the waitress brought it but quickly took it away before she was done with it. Much too pricey for service and food quality. Would not recommend it.

    The quality of the food was superb, one of our group ordered pizza and thought it was fantastic, the Pasta Fagioli soup was hearty and good although a little under seasoned, But after some salt and pepper excellent, the Italian Sausage amd Brocolli Rab was superb, as was the Linguini with White Clam Sauce. Only real let down was the Calamari which was bland and underwhelming. It was under Seasoned, and not particulqrly crispy. I would order a pizza as an app instead. Incedently my daughter; who hates everything, loved the Manicotti. Overall great spot. Ill be back next trip to NYC.

    The calzones were hardly filled with any cheese. What a ripoff! My family has been eating at Sal’s for 30 years and the deep fried calzones were always the thing we looked forward to the most. When the calzones came out, they were flat. What am I paying $12 for? A piece of deep fried dough? This is not the first time this happened. I visited with my brothers and sister about two months ago and the calzones were just as pathetic. This is the last time my family and I will be visiting Sal’s. On top of the disappointing calzones, the wait staff added a $30 gratuity. Where was the service? She brought over 6 beers and 8 barely filled calzones. This was not a 5 course meal. SAD!

    Although we’d made a reservation there seemed to be some question about whether we could be seated. Within five minutes we were all settled and by the end of the evening had enjoyed fried calamari, fried zucchini, pizza, pasta, chicken francese, sausages with broccoli rabe, and chicken parm. First rate. Friendly service.

    My friends & I gathered together to celebrate my birthday at this family owned restaurant. Max one of the owners greeted us upon arrival and checked in on us throughout the meal. We were a large group and the waitress was very accomodating and helped with food suggestions. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals, from pizza to pasta to chicken entrees. Go to Sal's for an authentic Italian meal.

    I had the chicken penne vodka and it's arguably one of my favorite meals I have ever had. The complementary bread is also amazing. The staff was welcoming and lively. Keep in mind that once you have paid, you're expected to leave due to the high demand. They want to be able to seat everyone.

    We came here because it was on open table.... Don't be fooled!!!! This has zero ambiance that you would expect visiting little Italy!!! There was a loud tv blasting entertainment news, poor service and decent food. The calzones were good, as you'd expect.... But nothing mind blowing, don't find yourself trapped here, walk down mulberry to places with better food and ambiance

    Looking forward to old school Italian and picked Sal's. The service was great but the food was lacking. The fried calamari was frozen and really chewy. We were there on a Friday and they were out if out first 3 wine choices. My fettuccini Alfredo was really good but the added chicken was dry and seemed like it was left over from another night. 2 out of 4 of our party would return.

    Solid, classic NY pizza and my favorite guilty pleasure - Sal's fried calzone. The calzones are humungeous and very good. Okay, it's almost fried pizza, but it is worth the calories. The Italian comfortfood items like chicken parm is very good. If you are looking for a no-frills place then Sal's is it.

    The BEST Italian food I've ever had. Seriously. The calamari was so tender it tasted like scallops. The Pizza was amazing. The fried calzone WAS TO DIE FOR! You have to taste this. The pasta was soooooo good. The cannolis were as good as everything that came before - just perfect. I mean it. You HAVE to try this place.

    The first sentence the waitress said was " what's wrong with you people? There are all empty tables there and you picked the only one 'reserved'?!". I reserved a table so how do I know? Then before we left she came "book a table for 3, n 2 came, n only one ate, what can I say?" well, what can I say?

    We dined on the sidewalk at Sal's in Little Italy. There was a group of family or friends next to us having an animated conversation in Italian. It was entertaining and completed the feeling of authenticity. The food was wonderful, and the service was very attentive.
