Sal & Carmine's Pizza
Posted by Kat on 11/30/2008
I love Sal & Carmine's, they make pizza like it used to taste back in the 80's. I actually make the trip every couple of months from the Midtown E/UES to the UWS, which takes more than an hour by subway just to get a slice. The crust, the sauce, the cheese, all perfect. But over the years, their slice is getting saltier, and saltier. Does anyone else think it's getting too salty for consumption, or is it just me? And if so, I'm wondering if anyone has told them this? My friend's mom also cooks for a restaurant, and my friend repeatedly has to tell her to leave off on the salt. Apparently, as you get older, you can't taste salt as much? so your cooking gets saltier. I find it hard to say anything when I look at their sweet faces, but am wondering if I should write a letter, and if that would help? What if it's just me. Anyone out there agree with me?

This place has the best cheese pizza ever. It is super salty and not too great when it's cold, but it's the tastiest pie.

They raised the price to $3 a slice, and the slice I had was tiny. Also very salty. The dining room could double as a morgue. I won't be back.

One of my favorite pizza places, along with DiFara. I get cravings to go here. Sold by slice. Hot in back. Not pretty but super delicious. Kinda expensive for a slice, but worth it.

These pies are incredible. The slices too, of course. Yes, the guys can be grouchy, but they are also essential West Side characters. The pizza does make me crave water in the middle of the night, so the critic who called it salty might have a point. But it's also the best pizza in the neighborhood and periodically rates as the best in the entire city. This place is fantastic. I live nearby and Sal & Carmine are considered treasures of the 'hood.

The pizza here is comparable to good Brooklyn pizza. Sal and Carmine ,and now their apprentices are nice but not effusive. They remember old customers and deliver respect and hospitality. Everyone waits their turn and gets served in pretty short order, there seems to always be pizzas baking. The place is clean, with both refuse and recycling containers, as I recall ,but for this matter as usual, theres mixed refuse as I recall. There is relative privacy and cleanliness in back with a good number of seats. It is surely the best place in the neighborhood, and I've been here over 40 years.

My child loves their pizzas. But for me, it is too salty. Hope they will improve on that.
