The owners are very nice and pleasant and will come out and converse with customers. The wait time wasn't very long, but I did arrive there after the lunch rush. I did not care for the selection of music,(local station?) but it wasn't too loud. I would have liked some Italian music. The place was clean and tidy. The lettuce... More

Very good food although service was a little slow. Chef- owner was very helpful. Cheesesteak sandwich was impressive with lots of meat and cheese. Would definitely return.

I was so thrilled to find the place. Owner (from New York) and staff were all so friendly. Pizza was as close as you can find to New York style around here. Husband loved his sub. We'll be back!

Great place to eat. Great service, great food, and worth a try. The best Italian food in Denison. A must stop for lunch.

We stopped by for a late lunch and the food was really not what I expected from reading the reviews. The Alfredo sauce was runny, the pizza tasted like cardboard and the service was not all that great. We were the only ones in there so I figured a little better than what we got. Oh well, not everyone can... More

Our school in Mesquite was on a field trip and needed to eat at a place where all 20 of us could find something to eat. We chose Sali's and it was the best decision of the night. The table was ready for us and the wait staff quickly got out salads and drinks and kept the drinks filled. The... More

This is one of our favorite spots. Unique tasty dishes. Great place to go get a pizza as well. My favorite is the calzone. We try to go at least once a month.

The new management definitely makes you feel at home! They are seriously the nicest people! The food is spectacular and they have to die for pizzas and stombollis. The food is cooked on the spot and the place is always clean.. My family gets food there all the time and they have free deliveries. Good/ clean environment, great food, and... More

The employees here need some serious training. Both people on the floor kept touching their faces (in particularly their noses and mouth) and hair and then getting customers' drinks and food. The same was happening with answering the phone and accepting payment for a bill - there was no hand-washing after that before picking up customers' food or drink. The... More

Went in on a Wednesday evening while in town on business, family run and operated. Very nice family! Good pizza, hand tossed crust with just the right amount of sauce and toppings. Obviously, a local spot. I saw at least 10 take out ordres and the phone rang the entire time I was there eating in. Defintely worth stopping in... More
