Sal makes the best bread and rolls in Blairsville, which makes his pizza, subs, stromboli, and calzones absolutely epic. It's definitely worth stopping here for lunch or dinner, you won't regret it!

We have dined here several times. For a traveler, it is a great place. We always have good food. There pizza is delicious. This is a little Italian restaurant right on the main Route of 22 going or coming from Pittsburgh, PA.

My wife likes the Italian hoagie and the Stromboli's are really good and filling. Pizza was good as we like the white pizza the best.

Located on HWY 22 5minutes from Chestnut Ridge Golf and Country Club. They have a variety of freshly prepared pasta dishes. The restaurant isn't fancy The price is right for families It isn't a place for romance but great food and beverages.

Our waitress immediately apologized for the slow service, even though it really wasn't slow. Apparently they had been very busy before we walked in, but we felt the service was one of the high points of our visit. I ordered the spaghetti with peppers and sausage and my wife had the shrimp Alfredo, which was on special that night for... More

My husband and I went here on a Saturday night. We both had the Papa Platter which has 4 large raviolis, 1 manicotti, 1 large stuffed shell and a good hunk of meaty lasagna. It comes with a salad and their wonderful bread and butter. I think the bread is the same dough that they use for their pizza crust.... More

Coming from the west, it had been quite some time since I have had good Italian food. We were invited to Papa Sal's by someone at our meeting that happens to live near Blairsville so we jumped at the chance to get Italian.

We started with cheese sticks that were very good. Also, the bread that came with our meals was delicious! The soup was amazing, and the salad was good. The sampler I had included lasagna, manicotti, cheese ravioli, and meat ravioli. The meat ravioli was good, but all the rest was some of the best Italian I've ever eaten. The homemade... More

My wife and I ate here the first night we got in. She ordered the chicken parm and I ordered the Philly Steak Salad. Both were very tasty and filling. Our waitress was very helpful. Next time we are in the area we will go there again.
