Sensibly located (where Parnell Rise flattens) the inside of this pizzeria just has that cozy feel of a neighborhood pizza parlor. Outside we’ve taken advantage of the natural landscape by putting in a beautiful patio – fully equipped with expansive city views and wonderful North facing sun. With its restored cafe tables a great spot for a pizza, a pitcher and a yarn…Sal’s NY Pizza.
One Review for Sal’s Authentic New York Pizza
I called in to ask for a pick up and the guy over the phone was really friendly and took my order down with no hassles. We only ordered one pizza which was the 18″ Veggie for $32. It’s pricey for a pizza but I’m the type of person to fork out a little more if the quality of the food is good.
Drove on down to pick up the pizza but I had to wait a few more minutes as it was still in the oven. This gave me a chance to check out the place a little more in detail. Most of the decor is colored in tasteful red and black. There are about 5 booth tables (1 table could seat about 4 people) on the inside and there’s an al fresco option too with the shade to cover you if you choose to go that way. There’s a fridge with soft drinks and a unisex bathroom (?) for your convenience.
Got the pizza and man it was massive, but the best part was that it smelled incredibly delicious and the taste was un-imaginably delicious. The veggie pizza had just simple ingredients which are cheese, mushroom, green capsicums and that’s it, all on a perfectly balanced sweet/tangy tomato paste. The dough of the pizza had this flavor as if it really came out of a stone oven and it really is something I have not tasted in any pizza place I have been to in NZ. The dough is a really important part of the pizza as it is the whole foundation. These guys as Sal’s have got it right and it was honestly the best pizza eating experience we have had in a while.
If there was anything I would want to improve about Sal’s is to have a few more options for sides e.g. NY style fries or something that screams out “New York!!” to set it apart; also it wouldn’t hurt to have a pizza of the month special so there’s always something new for people to try.
Thank you guys, and we’ll definiMoretely be back again!
