Never disappoints, always a good time to go with friends for a large to share or just a piece on the go. Fill me with carbs and cheese <3

It's not common to write reviews for a pizza shop! people just go there by default but I felt this is the best pizza shop ever as you can "Quickly" have your "Hot", "Delicious" pizza and have a "Beer" or "Cider" with it all at a "Reasonable price" and add "Cheese" on top and have it in a live, fun...

Pizza by the slice or whole, combo deals (pizza and beer - yum!), great for a bite on the run or sit down with family.

if you are a fan of thin crust or American style this is the only place in nz to go, they have 3 branches in auckland but the best is on k road, not the prettiest or geared up for the torist trade but the best tasting.

I'm in Auckland for a week and planned restaurants to visit based on reviews and was so excited to go to Sal's. I was so disappointed by everything about this place. The atmosphere was non-existent. Just booths in a small room and tennis playing on the TVs. The staff member behind the counter was unresponsive and disinterested. The cook who... More

I don't mean to criticise, but thank GOD Sal's is alive and thriving in New Zealand or you'd be hard pressed to find a decent pizza anywhere in the country. There are some good 'gourmet' pizza places around but Sal's is proper pizza and one of (if not THE) best. My most recent trip saw me there within half an... More

I go here whenever I get the chance its the best pizza I ever had, the meatball pizza is something I spend a lot of time thinking about, having never been to NYC I feel this is the closest I am ever going to get to trying an authentic NYC pizza. The pizzas are huge too!! Really great value. Definitely... More

We went to the K Road Sals on Friday night of our visit and ended up coming here the next night also. The pizzas are amazing, we ordered a whole one of half chicken and half sausage and was blown away by the size and ended up forcing ourselves to eat as much of it as we possibly could and... More

This pizza isn't really for me. It's proper NY style in that there's loads of cheese and loads of grease. Some people love that so you can't knock it. However, I prefer Italian style pizzas that are very thin, very crispy and very simple with fresh and quality ingredients. That's the complete opposite of Sal's.

I've had the chance to sample many of NY's finest pizza offerings, being half-American and my family is from there, and I can honestly say this is the best NY style pizza I have ever found outside of Manhattan itself! Fantastic cheese, perfect amount of Marianna sauce and a base/crust that is as good as you're gonna get without that... More
