Excellent! You wouldn't think much of the place as you drive by as it is in a strip mall, but once inside....Mama Mia! Make sure you have reservations.....this place is a local favorite and fills up fast. The Lasagna is great.....also try the Chicken Parmesan.

We had a very good pizza at Uncle Sal's but if you are in a hurry, you better not go there. We arrived and ordered at 12:30 and the pizza wasn't brought to the table until 1:20. The server brought 2 pieces of garlic bread as an appetizer. My husband thought the pizza was way too salty for his taste.... More

This review is for everyone who loves lamb chops... wow zow wonderful..Im usually a purest (mint jelly) but I try different ways, usually disappointed but NOT at Sal's. This strip mall eatery can easily be missed but I found it and so happy I did. The lamb is in a simple Marsala wine sauce and perfectly med-rare...PERFECT! I made so... More

Dined here a few years ago and was fantastic. This time felt very unwelcome by local regulars at the bar. Food was bad, meatballs tasted freezer burned and sauce was watery. Suffered next day. Hope isolated occurrence but was bad experience.

Old style, means dark, so bring your readers and cell phone light to read the menu. Great bar where you can choose from the full menu, if you like. Prices are very reasonable. AND they have limoncello in the freezer!

Took 4 friends here yesterday for dinner. Was extremely disappointed in food & service. Arrived @ 6:00 with reservations-group of 5 people. We were promptly informed only 1 check per table, we had requested 2 checks for 5 people. Server slightly abrupt. Wine & salads came about 6:20. At 7:30 my husband inquired about our dinners and when they might... More

Uncle Sal's is one of our go to restaurants. Usually, we would rate this restaurant five stars but, service was a bit off on our most recent visit. All at our party enjoyed their entrees except one who felt their chicken dish was flavorless. There was a large party seated nearby our table and our server was monopolized by this... More

For a casual dining experience in a smaller, comfy Italian Restaurant with a traditional menu, go to Uncle Sal's. We enjoyed the food and ambiance. Theee is an outdoor patio as well. The pasta dishes are what we focused on, and we were quite happy with our selections. Can hardly wait to go back for another helping--ancora!

First of all I heard great things about Uncle Sal's so I decided to order a pizza to go the other night. I walked into Uncle Sal's and it was packed so the food must be fantastic. Unfortunately the pizza was mediocre at best. The crust was doughy the sauce hardly noticeable and the sausage was hard to find. They... More
