This place was special for a few reasons. It’s uncommon to find a chicken shop that goes the mile and makes an actual meal out of it instead of just the classic fries and chicken. This was epic. Their menu caters to all and offers such a unique range of variations on such classic and simple basics like a rostisary chicken. It was off the beaten track but also not too far from it and the owner Michaelangelo was very passionate about his service. The only thing I missed was a was a wet cloth to clean my hands or a tooth pick after my ribs (but that’s seriously picky) Highly reccomend this place, don’t order the basic stuff - you’re probably on holiday if you read this and seriously you can get a classic choock at home. Get something out there the different types of chicken or ribs are epic. Make good choices kids and eat here.

While wandering the streets of Salerno in search of dinner we stumbled upon Pollo Express. The owner personally came out to greet us and walked us through the history of the restaurant and his menu. My wife has a gluten allergy so we were getting tired of pizza and pasta and were extremely excited to find this unique place to eat. The chicken and the french fries we ordered were beyond delicious. The flavors were so intense and the french fries were so fresh we didn’t even need catchup! It’s worth the trip from anywhere on the Almofi coast if you’re looking for a good chicken dinner! Tomorrow night we’re going to try the ribs!

My wife loved the purple chicken
My daughter almost finished the orange chicken all by herself
We all loved the ribs, fall off the bone delicious
I recommend this place, you will not be disappointed
The service was exceptional. You can tell Michael Angelo takes great pride in his restaurant

we came here after reading the great reviews and wanting a change from the usual Italian dishes and glad we did. we had the purple chicken with the mama potatoes and mixed salad. The quality of the chicken was yummy and so were the potatoes. the prices are quite cheap and the portions very generous. service was awesome and the owner has nailed customer service to the T. if you're going in the summer and plan to sit outside, you may need a jacket to be comfortable.

Pollo Express is a must visit in Salerno. Especially if you are sick and tired from Italian cuisine like we were after a week sailing the Amalfi road.
Michaelanglo is an amazing owner. He is an ideal host and makes dining at his restaurant a true pleasure. He personally attends to your every request and made sure everyone of our party of 8 was happy with their order. The chicken comes in different flavors and the purple chicken was to die for!!!
