Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The pepperoni pizza was excellent, lots of pepperoni. The black olive pizza was very disappointing, very few olives The service was very good but we went on a Monday which was a no alcohol night due to staffing.

We were looking for some pizza while on a two week road trip of the south island and while in Dunedin saw this place while we were walking and it seemed to check out in reviews. The pizza was very good but much more fantastic...were the pepperoni wheels which were just out of this world. We loved them so much that when we found out there was a Sal's near our hotel in Auckland we went back and got some just before catching our flight back to the USA to eat at the airport and during our flight. If you go to Sal's make sure you get some of them.More

Ordered a combo pizza to feed the 3 of us - it was my first Sals experience. The pizza was huge and tasted excellent. Just 2 pieces each feed us leaving another 2 pieces for one of our group for lunch the next day. Initially...I thought it was expensive but on reflection, given how big and tasty the pizza was, I think it was the right price for the a great pizza. We ordered via the website and collected it just 15 minutes later.More

I would say the best pizza in Dunedin. Sauce Is flavourful and vibrant with a really nice base. Really big portions you only need 2 slices! (I order more anyway).

We'd hadn't had the New York style of pizza before but it was great! Kyra gave us good advice and was very friendly. We would definitely recommend Sal's.

Very ordinary pizzas with limited toppings. Under the old cook pub and I guess designed for students!

My partner and I came in for lunch and ordered the Nonna pizza which apparently is “award winning.” We we’re looking forward to a pizza with fresh, simple flavours - what we got was a pie full of grease and though the base was good,...the sauce tasted like a can of tinned tomatoes was spread all over (no salt or any other flavour to speak of), you could t taste anything other than the odd basil leaf on top (the pie apparently included Parmesan and garlic) and the added bread chicken on top was bland, dry and completely tasted like cardboard. To get through the meal (we were hungry) we had to douse the pie with the shakers of oregano, chilli flakes and Parmesan cheese. Definitely would t recommend and would love to know who decided the Nonna pizza deserved an award or that the restaurant is the 22nd best pizza place in the WORLD. Doubt it.More

Crust was bland and had no taste. Not as much cheese as I expected for the price. My 'Nonna' pizza was supposed to have 'fresh' basil. There was one small basil leaf on each of the huge slices and it was burned to a crisp....It had not been put on 'fresh'. This pizza was not any better than the $8 Dominos pizzas but at four times the cost. I've had New York pizza .... this is NOT New York pizza. It's a franchise pizza restaurant that is taking advantage of former glory by the original restaurant. We took this pizza as a 'takeaway' and did not sit in the restaurant.More

WOW!! Thin, crisp crust; great flavours; simple ingredient combinations; ordered a takeaway 18" pizza - which fed 4 of us happily. Couldn't resist the Mozzarella sticks, nor could our guests who also agreed it was the BEST pizza ever. (FYI, leftovers re-heated well too). What...a gem, that we didn't know had just opened pre-Covid and had since been hiding in the old Captain Cook hotel. Stylish fit-out, great service. Can't wait to eat more of their delights. Well done Team Sal!! Easy 5 min parking.More

Sals pizza is the best pizza joint I have been to as the size of the pizza and the pure taste are great and this is reflected in the price I believe is overall worth it
