[CLOSED] Salvatore of SoHo

PIZZA

[UPDATE: This review took place at now closed Hylan Blvd location, Salvatore has moved to 105 Guyon Avenue]

[UPDATE: Salvatore is no more]

Salvatore of SoHo is as good as New York pizza gets. Hands down. The quality of the pies, combined with the overall friendliness of the place and the relaxed, throwback style of the decor make it unbeatable. The odd name for a Staten Island pizza joint comes from Salvatore's days with Lombardi's in SoHo, but it could honestly be said that the student is now the master.


The menu is full of other Italian favorites, which you see regulars ordering, whether it be baked clams, an array of parmigianas, or pastas. It would be nice to come here with your large family or a big group of friends, getting a suitable assortment of items.

The pie below is a large sausage and pepper ($22.95). As with the other pies, the mozzarella is made fresh daily, the herbs come from organic sources upstate. The tomatoes and olive oil are also not afterthoughts.


What you find on this one is supremely fresh red peppers that are cooked right on the top, fresh basil, and crumbled sweet Italian sausage. The crust is thin and the rim of the pizza will be perfectly blackened on every pie you see. They really know what they are doing here, creating works of art.


Sal says it himself about the place: "Pizza as it should be." That about sums it up.
