This week Patch's Small Business Profile features one of Sayville's most beloved restaurant and pizzeria.
Vito and Lori Giambanco brought Sal's Pizzeria and Catering, a family-owned business founded in 1980, to Sayville in 1992.
How did your business come to be?
When Vito's family came to this country from Italy, they bought a pizzeria. His Aunts and Uncles already had a few here and they felt they could build a great business. When Vito's father died in 1992 Vito and Lori bought the pizzeria from his Mom to carry it on in the great community of Sayville.
Why did you choose the Sayville area?
In 1980 it was cost effective for the family and we really loved the location.
What do you offer customers?
Two words: Top Quality! Everything from the ingredients to excellent customer service, we have never and will never compromise on our quality.
What is your business to be best known for?
Hmmm that's tough we have many things including our sauce, freshness of ingredients, service, and great value.
What's your most popular product or service?
Our most popular food item ordered is the pizza, all different kinds from regular cheese, Sicilian and Grandma. Our signature sauce is made fresh in our kitchen everyday and it is definitely another Sayville favorite for heros and entrees. In terms of a service of Sal's, we're also known for our support in the community. We are happy to support local teams, non-profits, some of these like our Day of Givings for the Victims Information Bureau of Suffolk are more widely publicized and many of our other charitable giving initiatives are more "behind the scenes."
