I ate at Sal's with my daughter. We had bruschetta or an appetizer. It was delicious. Both of our entrées were very good. Then we had dessert. All of the desserts looked fabulous. My daughter had the pomegranate cheesecake. She loved it. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for great Italian food.

Sal's has an excellent Sunday buffet. My wife and I took a visiting couple to Sal's, and everyone was impressed with the large selection and quality. The roasted lamb was a big hit, since it is not a common menu item in our area.

I went there the other evening and the waitress who was new messed up my order. It was fixed and it was no big deal as it didn't take that much longer to come out. I have been eating at sals for decades and the tortellini alfredo is one of my favorite dishes there. For some reason, this time, it... More

We always make it a point to have dinner at Sal's when we're in Burlington--it's become a tradition. They have absolutely the best Italian meals you could want. Fortunately, we went on a Thursday for dinner this time; Friday and Saturday have always been packed when we've gone, and we've had a lengthy wait to get a table for a... More

My wife, daughter, and I came here Sunday after church for lunch. They do have a great Sunday brunch buffet but we opted for some pasta. I got baked ziti and my wife got the pasta with vodka sauce. Both were yummy! I had a salad with the homemade Italian dressing which was also great.

Sal's is one of our places to go when we want good food at reasonable prices. My wife and I recently took an out of town guest, and were not disappointed. My wife ordered a dinner salad, I had prime rib, and our guest ordered shrimp scampi. All were delicious.

The restaurant is casual and the food is plentiful. Nothing over the top but average. I have had better and a lot worse. I think the atmosphere is what makes this place. It is not a typical chain restaurant.

I love the pizza here. The staff for the most part is nice and friendly but a couple time we had one that was kinda rude and acted annoyed when she took our order.

Went with a group of 9 people and the service was slow, orders wrong and the bills for everyone was wrong. Food was just average. Our waitress was new and this was what caused the issues, but in my opinion the restaurant should have had a seasoned waitress working alongside the new waitress for a large group. My displeasure is... More
