Very nice, pricey

Went to dinner here with a group of about 10 people. Nice place on the bay. Service was good. Dinners arrived at the same time. The place is a little pricey. Wine prices were outrageous in my opinion. A bottle of wine is about 3 times retail, so be prepared. Cork fee is $20 per bottle if you... read more

Love the view and atmosphere. A bit pricey but this is where I discovered the italian surfer and not its my new fav cocktail and a sort of family tradition--we mix it at home quite often. The food is great, especially the burger.

There are few places in Richmond that I would consider to be on the higher end I'm regards to restaurants. Salute is a quaint little place with great food. They also have a decent bar. The one issue that I have with the place is that the bar area looks pretty rough. It may be time for a remodel, but... More

Salute e Vita Ristorante is a real treat! My family took me there for my birthday and we all had wonderful dinners. We asked the waiter to leave the dessert cart by our table, but we had to wait til the end of dinner to have it brought over. Drinks were good, service is impeccable, food is delicous! Oh, and...

I love Salute! For many years we have had our company Christmas Parties here. Talk to Membe, she's the owner, and an awesome person to get to know. She makes you feel at home and gives you Rock Star Treatment overtime you visit. The food is some of the best Italian in the Bay Area.

A friend and I went to a Friday evening dinner here right before sunset. We were seated at a lovely table right along the water front. Service was attentive and helpful. Every course was excellent from the wonderful amuse bouche the kitchen started with to the salad, appetizers and entrees. My only regret is the food was so good and... More

Recently ate at the Salute e Vita with a group for business. The view was stunning and complimented a super meal. The servers were prompt and paid excellent attention to detail despite the large size of our group. Food came hot and was delicious. Would absolutley come back to this ristorante!

As visitors to California, our hosts took us out to Salute e Vita during our visit. It certainly is in a pleasant location with views out onto the adjacent marina. Because our hosts are regular customers there and know the staff personally, we were obviously accorded special attention. Because of their local knowledge they were able to describe the various...

I had to meet a colleague and one of our clients. My Colleague lives in the area and suggested we meet at Salute since she lives in the area. I am African American and my Colleague is White.
