2nd time here and I will not return.
Apps were good, Mozz & Tomato and Eggplant Rollatini
Entrees were not good!
Pasta Alla Norma was very greasy and very diasapointing.
Chicken Giambotta was the worst I ever had, dried out chicken and flavorless.
Outside dinning only (in the parking lot) during their remodel.
Plenty of other options in the area.

Had no idea Restaraunt was under construction. Got there. Had to eat outside. Felt manipulated. Not really what we wanted to do.

Restaurant should post construction notice on website as fair notification to customers.

Lighting terrible if not under tent. Wait staff seemed annoyed although our waiter was fine. Whole rhythm of place felt off.

Won’t go back until inside is reopened.

The front desk was HORRID. They were late with our reservation and didn't know how to keep us happy. Too bad, but you cannot have your least experienced staff making the FIRST impression.

Food was great. Table service was 8/10. Price was as expected.

GOOD FOOD!!!

We were there to celebrate a birthday. The food and service were exceptional - especially the sparkler on the birthday dessert and the serenading by the staff.

My wife and I had not been at this establishment for many years. The set up as far as outdoor and indoor is very nice. The menu is very diversified. Our food was delicious. My only objection is that it is a bit pricy.

I wanted to like this spot more than I did. The food was good. Not outstanding. The spicy shrimp weren't spicy, the meatballs were good, the fried calamari was also good. The gnocchi were very good, pillowy, with a great black truffle flavor. The chicken Milanese was tasty. The bolognese Pappardelle suffered from the same issue as at many other restaurants -- it's just a meat sauce, not a slow cooked traditional bolognese. One large portion of the Pappardelle was stuck together and gummy. The sauce was good, for sure, and it might have been better with rigatoni. Service was very good.

Had reservations for 7 and being on Sunday we arrived early around 6:30 could have been seated then but went to have a cocktail. We then were seated around 7:15 and got a bottle of wine and ordered calamari which was good and enough for us to split. We ordered Orecchiette and totally loved the dish. Would recommend Sally G’s and will visit again.

The salad was a good size and tasty. Two in our party had the chicken milanese, which they said was very good. I had the veal which was also very good. Large portion so I took half home. My husband had the halibut but he said it was overcooked. We will return to give it another try.

Excellent meal at Saly G’s last night. Started our meals with the house salad, which is a very generous size. 2 people could easily share. Our party enjoyed the veal chop parmigiana, which was super tender, pasta Norma and the garganelli pasta. Everything was delicious. Unfortunately we had no room for dessert but I am sure they are also delicious.

4 of 6 dinners arrived. They were warm, not hot. 2 were significantly delayed due to service grabbing the two orders for another table. So while they prepared the two lost orders, the other’s waited on the warming tray.

Very nice menu! Nice complimentary offering with bread. Fried calamari was on the tough side. The crabmeat cocktail was a little on the fishy side. The cesar salad dressing was not as good as many other places that I have been. The halibut was very much overcooked and dry that I sent it back. Might have been just a bad night.

The food is always good, and service is solid - our waiter was kind and working very hard to make sure everyone on the patio was taken care of. But what I find unacceptable is the lack of “hospitality” from this restaurant. There is no one (aside from the hard working servers or bussers) who comes around to ask how your experience is, no one to greet you and no one to say goodnight. This kind of extra touch makes the good food, great. And makes spending $300+ on dinner on a Thursday worth it.

The chef owner was clearly outside with another table, playing loud videos on his phone, not saying goodnight to any guests or at least thank you as they left. He sat with this table laughing loudly, playing on his phone, while other people were trying to enjoy their meals and experience. I find it unacceptable that this young restauranteur does not let least say thank you to guests as they are leaving. No matter how good the good is, you need to have manners and be gracious. I found the experience to be disgraceful and there are plenty of local businesses to support these days that treat their customers kindly.

Vanessa our waitress was outstanding, however they had a repass that was supposed to arrive at 3 who didn’t arrive until 6 and threw the entire kitchen off, their computer was down also. We got our first drink after a half hour, 2nd drinks came 70 minutes later and then an appetizer, which was a fennel salad. Joe did come out to apologize an hour and a half in, after we asked Venessa what was going on. We had a 7:30 reservation and left at 9:45 with no dessert or coffee. I would have thought after all the wait time we would have been comped a drink atleast?
I understand circumstances happen but deal with your other customers also. The food was good, my friends steak was delicious, my seafood was slightly over cooked but still tasty. I’ve eaten here before a few times, I’m hoping I can convince my friend to come back

Sat outside so the trade off is it being loud from a lot of hard surfaces for sound to bounce off of, which it did. Food and service was excellent, I never been unhappy with a meal here.
