Another great late night dinner at this neighborhood gem. Chicken dishes are made to order so take your time. Wedge salad is fresh and delicious.

Food was just so so. The caesar salad was large romain lettuce pieces put on a plate with shaved cheese & 5 croutons. The staff needs to know about the wines they serve, dry vs sweet, they don’t seem to understand the difference. A better choice of wines needs to be made available and it should not take 15 minutes to receive your cocktail. The food was lacking flavor and the appearance of dishes need to be revamped.

Greeted at door like paying a toll at a toll booth. Not even a good evening welcome to/ nothing/
Person at the door was dressed sloppily
Décor is dated and dark, and that's being generous
Food was at best a B. One entrée of grilled sea food was drowning in olive oil!
The add for this venue was excellent to lure us in but the overall experience was not good.
Wait staff was ok/
Location was a large commercial parking lot. Not attractive. Outdoor space was adjacent to parking lot, like tail gating, not appealing based on billing!

Firsttimer & it was a very nice place. The only negative comment I have is that about 8:45 they began rushing us to pay the check so as the waiter said”he could close out”. It was a bill of $175 so we weren’t just sittings around.

Our first visit and very pleasant overall. Food was very good and priced accordingly. Our waiter may need to learn how to assure he services the customer and make it a memorable dinner. Fresh bread and olives immediately provided. The shrimp special appetizer we shared was great and came out promptly. Ordered a salad and that arrived after our dinner was served so obviously returned it. I asked for a custom sea-bass dish and they complied and it was very good. My wife had the Veal special and again very good and enough to have take home.Could have less saturation of butter on my Sea-bass which would have allowed the nice saute to be better appreciated. We were going to order a bottle of wine however the waiter forgot to come back. Too late so we did water and coattails instead. Desert was wonderful and actually exceptional. Appreciated the champagne gift for our anniversary, nice touch and nicely done by chef at the table. We definitely will return and these observations are only to help to improve the waiter timing service which would make this an exceptional area restaurant. Have to try coming for dinner during an entertainment event too.

The meal started off with excellent bread and a "relish tray" with butter, olives and eggplant tapenade. The appetizers --buratta special, vegetable tower and broccoli rabe and sausage were all delicious. Papardelle Bolognese with ricotta was outstanding. And we really loved the chef's complimentary zeppoles and excellent "waffle" dessert with berries, whipped cream and Nutella that we shared. Excellent stop!

The food and service at Saly G's was top-notch! Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable! To start, a basket of Italian bread was placed on our table with a plate containing delicious marinated eggplant in one section, butter in the middle section, and mixed olives in the third section. We had an appetizer of clams oreganata that were perfectly fresh and perfectly seasoned. We dipped our bread into the wonderful sauce the clams were baked in. We all had fish and we all loved our entrees. My husband had Chilean Sea Bass, I had branzino filet, and my son has zuppa di pesce. All the fish was high quality and perfectly prepared. My son asked for pasta with the zuppa di pesce, and was readily accommodated. His zuppa di pesce came nestled on a angel hair pasta. Don't miss the dessert called, The Waffle. It is incredible with waffles, nutella, gelato, strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream! We were also give freshly made, lighter than air, zeppoles. With cappuccino, it was the perfect end to an excellent meal.

Really good food. Service was slow. I had to ask for whatever I wanted as opposed to the waiter coming by to check on us. If we needed more bread, I had to flag the waiter down. Even waiting for the check necessitated me getting up to find the waiter. Food was excellent though.

Haven’t been to Saly Gs in a while and was so surprised to come for lunch and see a beautiful patio! We got to sit outside in this beautiful day and enjoy a delicious lunch with beautiful music in the background! This place just gets better every time, Our picante flatbread was delicious and the Parma panini was insane we just love it here! Chef came out to serve us and then sent us complimentary zepole at the end of our lunch! Saly G’s is not your average restaurant they make you feel special every time and go that extra mile to make you happy!

Sally G is literally a hidden secret. In a strip mall behind a Dunkin Donut !! But it is an impressive place. The interior layout is well designed. The bar is separated from the dining area which keeps the dining area quieter. Service is attentive and polite. The mix of Italian dishes with continental was very helpful for my wife...a vegetarian. The Gnocchi dish with truffles was one of the best that she has come across. My mixed grilled seafood was a delight. All fish was fresh and of high quality. And all reasonably priced.

First timer at this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised with the ambiance and the food. Do not be taken back by the entrance which feels like the back side of the mall/ warehouse.The interior is contemporary and cozy. We were a party of 4 celebrating a birthday. We were happy with the high quality food and service. Entrees were large sized portions and ranged from $24-$38. I recommend their steaks, the salmon and the Zuppa de Pesce. Our appetizers were delicious too- vegetable tower, calamari and burrata. The meal was on the expensive side but the quality and service were par for the bill.

There were 4 of us for dinner on a Friday night. They served us a large basket of bread and a tray with olives, sautéed zucchini and soft butter which you normally get hard butter at other restaurants. This we thought was a nice touch.
Pros:
Our appetizers: Sally G shrimp, Vegetable tower, a very large order, and Octopus. All were very good.
Entrees: Veal Tomasino, Salmon and Poached Halibut also were very good.
Cons:
The serving plates were cold which takes away from the very good food. The green beans were cold except the salmon dish. They were under the hot salmon making them just warm. The only hot dish was the one with the poached halibut.
We selected 2 bottles of wine from an extensive wine list.
Our server was very good; courteous, polite and recommended some of the dishes being this was our first time there

We had read good things about Saly G's and decided to try it for ourselves. Everything was fantastic, from the bread, to the appetizers, to the main course and dessert (try the waffle with nutella and ice cream!). My wife and I both agreed that we'll have to go back and try some other dishes on the menu. I highly recommend.

Most of the main dishes were good. One pasta dish’s sauce was watered down probably because the pasta wasn’t fully drained and there was too much pasta in the bowl.

Chef Joseph is doing a great job. The menu has so many choices, all presented in a modern and unusual way. The flavors are amazing, not your typical Italian presentation that you find in every Italian restaurant in the area. Nice bar if you just want to do that scene.

My husband and I went for dinner. We had a great experience, starting with the bread, olives, and eggplant for the table. We shared the sausage and broccoli rabe appetizer which was yummy. Our mains were also good. He had veal, I had pasta with shrimp and clams. The shrimp was a bit overcooked, but otherwise very good. At the end of the meal we were surprised with zeppolis. They were delicious. We will go again.

I am lucky to have such a great restaurant right in my town! It's our go-to for dining with friends, family or alone. Great food. Traditional and creative Italian meat, fishes, seafood, pastas and FABULOUS daily specials! Fair prices for wines by the glass and cocktails. Professional servers who have been there forever....so you never need to ask twice for anything. We love the specials of lasagna Tuesday night and short ribs on Wednesday. Mixed seafood grill of baby octopus, shrimp and calamari on a bed of escarole is light yet filling. Owner Chef on site and comes out to greet guests as well as see how meals were. Great place! Fancy enough for special occasions but casual enough to pop in for a quick dinner when I'm too busy to cook!

This was the 2nd time we've been to Saly G's. Our first time, the food was delicious so we recommended it as well as decided to return with our family members. Food this time was salty and the grilled trio was more like charred trio. Now I don't know which time was a fluke, the good or the bad experience.

Always a great meal at Saly G's. Once again on a Saturday night we found ourselves without plans for an early dinner. Made a quick Opentable and had another great meal. My son had the skirt steak Saturday night special, my wife had the special Cod, and I had an old standby, chicken modo nosto. All very tasty, and their drinks are great.

We were a party of five. Three of us had pasta dishes which were excellent and two of us had salmon salad. There was one soup dish served and that was enjoyable and two of us had Caesar salads which were unremarkable but certainly not oversauced, a definite plus. A bit more anchovy would have been appreciated. I had a delicious margarita and another member had Lillet which I was unfamiliar with but the sip I had would lead me to try it in the future. The only problem we encountered was some difficulty in making ourselves understood to the waiter whose English was not perfect. He was most accommodating but it was a bit of a struggle, and my wife's salad was so heavily lemony, she couldn't eat it. It should have been sent back and replaced as I'm sure it would have been no trouble. After all it was arugula, not 12 oz of filet mignon. All in all, it was a most delightful meal. This was my third visit and every one of them has been most enjoyable. This is an excellent restaurant and easily accessible. I'm looking forward to number four
