Sal's Neighborhood Pizzeria
Sal's Neighborhood Pizzeria and Italian Ristorante
Most of you probably already know that our resident island “celebrity” pro boxer, Sal “Rocky” Cenicola made a successful return to the ring in Fernandina Beach, FL on April 13 with a four-round unanimous decision victory over Nate Petty after 25 years of retirement. He is now not only in the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Fame, but in the Guinness Book of World Records. But Sal doesn’t only want to be known for a world-class, world record comeback, he wants his restaurant to be known for its world-class authentic Italian cuisine and pizza, as well as a world-class dining experience.
At Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria and Italian Ristorante, located at 3415 Frederica Rd. on St. Simons Island, Sal continues three generations of family tradition by passing their treasured recipes down to a fourth generation. He uses only the finest ingredients, importing some from Italy, New Jersey and New York. Sal and his staff cook with love and expect the quality of their dishes to always be something of which they can be proud. If you think of Sal’s as just another “pizza joint,” you’re really missing out. While the pizza coming from the oven is always spectacular, the pasta, veal, pork, chicken, and seafood dishes are equally, if not more, delicious. A nice wine selection and fully stocked bar, as well as coffee and dessert options, make this one of the most popular places in town.
Sal is proud of his “championship staff” for stepping up and tirelessly maintaining his high ideals while he was spending time training for his fight. Now with that historic win under his belt, he’ll be throwing more pizza dough than punches and never settling for mediocrity.
Sal says, “I would like to personally thank everyone in the local community for their support and the visitors who make a point to return whenever they’re in town.” He promises to keep delivering the world-class quality food with championship standards and ideals and winning personality that keeps you coming back and bringing your friends.
