My niece and I went last night. The garlic bread with cheese - YUM. The pizza - the best. Small restaurant but you will love it. Take out is also available and judging by the line-up, I think everyone in Halifax agrees best pizza.

This is a very good choice for pizza in Halifax. Their pizza has a "fresh" quality which I assume comes from fresh quality ingredients and is fairly priced. The only downside is if you go on a busy evening you will have to wait in line for as long as 45 minutes and wait an additional half hour for your... More

Had this pizza delivered- it was amazing. It wasn't saturated in sauce so you tasted the toppings. I ordered the Lombardo - loved it ! Delivery was an hour but it was well worth the wait.

We traditionally have a pizza on a Saturday night for supper...mostly the frozen variety taken home and placed in the oven. 99% of the pizzas are quite good. However, this Saturday, Oct.1st., we decided to go all out and order a take out from Salvatores. This we did and had the Pizza alla Greca. We found the pizza most disappointing...very... More

I have not been down this way for decades. However, all is changed for the best. I was going down memory lane to when I had the best pizza on this street when I was a kid...Tomasos. I was wrong...this is the best pizza on the street HANDS DOWN! Nice to see the tradition live on :)

Thank wonderingj
