Sal’s cooks best pizza in town


By: Chris Carter

If you’ve only driven as far as the bridge by David Bissett Park, you have been missing out on what lies further down West Main Street.

Sal’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria is located in Central Square Shopping Plaza. They were the 2013 “Best of the Burgs” award winner for Best Pizza and Best Italian Restaurant, as well as a 2013 TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” award winner.

Their New York style pizza is the best in town, and their mouthwatering lasagna is second to none.  There is something for everyone on the menu. Their menu features a wide array of choices ranging from traditional Italian dishes to overstuffed subs, and even some delicious fried calamari as an appetizer.

One Radford University student I interviewed raved about how good the food is, saying, “It tastes like authentic Italian food and they have the best calzones!”

Fellas, if you’re looking for a nice place to take a date, look no further than Sal’s. It’s a little more expensive compared to the traditional franchise chains, but the mammoth sized portions make it well worth the cost. Plus you are sure to impress your date – especially when you top it all off with their decadent chocolate mousse cake.
