The place is nice, not fancy, but nice. Maybe it is exactly what you would expect of a pizza/pasta place. We went there with family and I had the calzone. It was good and loaded with cheese. They have kind of a play park/space for the kids. Just watch out for the rug it gives the kids burns if they... More

Went with a group of 5 for pasta. All were happy. The meal was reasonably priced. The ambiance is basic but not an indication of the place. Service was good.

Every time I come to Cali this is a must - their calzone is probably a tradition and the best I've had. This time we were the only table and they mixed up our order pretty bad and left us waiting for my daughters pizza for a long time. Flavor was awesome as always but our order got jinxed a... More

We eat dinner at the Salerno in Jardin Plaza shopping mall. The food here was amazing. The pasta and the calzone were just delicious. It was very relaxed even if the mall was crowded at that time. The dessert was also fantastic! If you want the best pasta in town you have come to the right place!

They also have specially cooked potato fries which accompanied by their Napolitana sauce are delicious. The pasta are good as well. Its decoration is... More

We were four. I share with a friend a personal size pizza and the smaller size of "pizza pantalon" (Calzone). - The food: Good taste. Portions were big so if you go with kids or people that do not eat that much I recommend you get in pairs to share one dish. -Location and service: Good. The place was ideal... More

I like this restaurant. They have an area for kids to play. Across the street is the El Peñon Park, which is worth a visit. They have very good tomato sauce and they sell it as take out.
