We came to this little place (hole in the wall) in Little Italy a few years ago. We remember the pasta, but forgot the service and the attention of the crew at the place. If in the area, you must try the pizza and pasta in this place and enjoy the New York/Italian style hospitality.

A cold rainy may evening in little Italy and any warm dry place looks good- the sidewalk barker drew in my 13 year old and he sucker us all in and am glad he did! At first it looked like almost a fast food little Italy joint but the food was good and the fried calzones were excellent! A new... More

Sals is a small Italian restaurant with seating in the back. We thinks it's some of the best pizza in little Italy! The staff have always been great and treat our kids wonderfully. It's NYC and people may come across brash but it's part of the NYC culture and they mean no disrespect! I would highly recommend and we always... More

I felt that we got suckered. This one was right at the entry to Nolita and so of course it's the first place you come across. They had a special outside for a meal, salad and wine for $25. We were going here because someone had recommended it but obviously that person has never had good Italian. Maybe I should... More

We were in the mood for pizza when we came across Sal's. I asked the blonde girl (hostess??) outside if it was ok to sit outside. She said we could sit there but couldn't order just a slice of pizza. Our feet were killing us so we sat down and planned to look over the menu and find something other... More

Bloody ho many miles we have walked to find Sal's as a special Italian typical pizzeria... We couldn't imagine such a mess, everything was disappointing from the size to the pizzas to the things floating over, the taste etc... a kind of discrete tourists trap and we ran into..

After walking from Battery Park to Little Italy with my family (2.5 year old and 5 year old) we built up quite the appetite. Little Italy can be a bit overwhelming with the various places to eat. After a quick online search Sal's kept coming up for great pizza. We walked straight to the back to find a great, warm,... More

We shared a big Pizza at Sal's Little Italy after waiting in line for 10 minutes to be seated. The wait was worth it! The pizza was delicious, especially the dough! Definitely a recommended place for a pizza in Little Italy for a small price!

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
