We chose this restaurant to host a surprise birthday party for my mom, who was turning 75. The owner (I think her name is Angela? I have it written down someplace :-), was SUPER accommodating to all of my questions and requests. She invited me to come in earlier that day to set up decorations, balloons and such, and even...

We went with friends who found the place on the internet. Had reservations on a Sat. night, which was a good thing - place was packed. Why? Service was extremely slow, with phony Italian wait staff names and accents. Food was REALLY slow coming out - several other tables seated well after we ordered had their entrée before our salad...

Service was slow to non existant, food was very small portions for such a high price. I guess most who have reviewed this place really dont know what good Italian foor is. To me it was sub-par and I will not go back.

We visited on a Friday night and the place was hopping when we first arrived but the service was good in spite of being very busy. Our meal was good but not great. The wine list was adequate. An overall good plus experience.

On several recommendations we tried Salvatore's and very glad we did. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food was very good - not your average everyday Italian fare. Tasted very gourmet! The prices were reasonable and servings were appropriate - not overdone with huge portions. The spumoni gelato cake was the creme de la creme! A small intimate setting.... More

After a long absence, we returned for a nice experience on a busy Friday night. Service was superb and decor is very inviting. The food was very good but not great. Cannelloni was excellent as was the melon prosciutto. We've had better risotto. The special artichoke appetizer was difficult to eat.
