I agree with some of the other reviews, that i was disappointed in the lack of spice in the marinara sauce. However, i still enjoyed my meal. They have outstanding bread that is served with both olive oil and butter. Also, the salad is always good. I find that it is hard to find a real good Italian restaurant, but this is better than the majority that i have been to.

Parking in on the street in front of the restaurant.

Great service and great food. We had the Manicotti. And the bread was excellent. Very neat and clean. Enjoyable little place.

Sal’s is an intimate restaurant for couples but also is suitable for families & friends. My husband had the veal Parmesan & raved how much he enjoyed it. He said the veal was tender and the whole meal was flavorful. I had the shrimp Parmesan. First I had a small Greek salad, and it was anything but small! It had anchovies on it, which was a first for me but thought I would give it a try. The salad was wonderful & the dressing was full of flavor, the salad also hosted Greek olives, which I love. My serving of the shrimp Parmesan was huge with plenty of shrimp, the shrimp may have been over cooked a bit but the sauce made up for that. (Sorry I forgot to take a picture of it before I ate it, I just have a picture of my leftovers!) I definitely recommend trying Sals out, it is medium priced but worth every penny. Our waitress was in no hurry, other waitresses were hustling, so maybe go in for a leisurely evening.

Visited Sals again to see if anything improved from before trip here however nothing had improved with the marinara sauce. For a authentic Italian restaurant I struggle to understand why the pasta sauce remains basically tomato sauce with little or no spices in it. The pasta sauce in a Italian restaurant is the mainstay ingredient necessary for bringing back repetitive customers. Is the owner Not looking at the reviews from customers because obviously nothing has improved from prior visits from patrons. Sad, because at one time this restaurant was as good as any around..

In the past 4 time we've eaten here the service and food was FANTASTIC. So for our 25th anniversary we decided to celebrate this special day with a meal here. Only one other person was in the restaurant when we arrived. The service was slow at best, our salads came out and less the 3 minutes later our meal came to. The bread was burned on the bottom, just not what we've experienced in our past visits. These made a special not so special when it came to our meal. I'm not sure we would ever go back or recommend Sal's ever again.
