They have a buffet for weekday lunch that is a good way to try different items. What is nice, is that the items are brought to your table by your waiter. Have also ordered from the menu and have been happy with our choices. Many times we'll order their cheesesteaks to go.

We were disappointed that they were "out" of one of the specials on the menu, and a bit suspicious. How could they be out for three days? Was it some frozen thing they purchased from Costco? So we ordered veal Marsala and eggplant parmigiana off the regular menu. Couldn't have been happier. The Marsala dish was one of the best... More

In town on business and the local team always raves about Sals! While not close to our hotel we finally gave it a try. 3 of the four had the lasagna and raved about it. I had the linguini with clams. Clams fresh in the shell very tasty. Linguini cooked perfectly the sauce a bit salty. Dinner included salad and... More

2nd visit and no complaints. The service is friendly, knowledgable, and willing to go two extra miles. We wanted the Crab Ravioli and the server suggested the Lobster Ravioli. Mmmmmm So good. The wine he recommended was spot on. This is my new favorite place. Thank you for a very enjoyable night.

We ate here for a group meeting and we were very pleased on all fronts. The food was excellent. The service was impeccable. The restaurant was loud enough to be festive, but still quiet enough for everyone at our table to hear what was going on. I highly recommend it. We will return.

First time here. Our friends had eaten here before and it is close to their home. The host was fun,especially when I mentioned that one of our friends was bald and the host was too. Our server, Catherine, proved to be very witty, knowledgeable and engaging. She did not mine that we were waiting for the rest of our party... More

My first visit to this location, the food was great and the service was good. We had a group 12 for dinner. The server handled the group very well. I had veal over pasta, it was covered in red sauce. I will return with my wife for dinner at a later date!

Let me start by saying this restaurant is very clean! It even smells clean! Which is hard to say for a restaurant. It is nicely decorated as well. So why the 3 rating .... Service. Our waitress was nice however she was not attentive. She even told us she forgot about us. Buffet option is great for lunch!
