For an older child's birthday celebration, this welcoming pizzeria is spot on, serving up large wood-fired gourmet pizzas in an authentic, dimly lit cozy Italian atmosphere to provide just the right sense of occasion. The pizza pies are rated by Haligonians as the best in the city, and the kids will have fun building their own creations from the menu of tantalizing selections. Instead of birthday cake, try the sweet cannolis – pastry stuffed with ricotta and chocolate, and dipped in toasted almonds. Drooling yet?
This award-winning pizza has been around for more than 20 years and has been featured on the Food Network’s show You Gotta Eat Here. Made from the original recipe of Salvatore Rinaldo, this pizza is sort of a New York/Italian hybrid painstakingly crafted with quality ingredients and specific techniques. It is suggested that you try the Original first: A thin crust reminiscent of a margherita. The newly expanded dining room ensures a proper dining experience, with a selection of local beer and wine on hand.
Salvatore’s might just have the best pizza in Halifax and, unlike most other gourmet pizzerias, they actually deliver! But, don’t yammer on about what toppings you’d like because they quite literally won’t let you put more than three toppings on your pizza. Don’t mess with perfection! Just order one of their original pizzas, and relax – because this kind of quality takes time. Admittedly, this pizza is best enjoyed in the dining room but Salvatore’s is so good that sometimes you just need your fix brought to your door.
