A quaint restaurant located in downtown Walnut Creek, California. If you crave crusty, fresh out of the oven bread, hand made salads with unbelievable toppings and dressing, fresh pasta, vegetables and seafood this is the place to eat. Make sure you make reservations. The restaurant is not very large and gets very crowded.

It had been a year at least since we last dined at Salvatore's. It's on Broadway just south of City Hall, just off the beaten path, however we had a Mountain Shadow Film event we planned to attend across the street at the library. We called Salvatore's for 6pm reservations on Saturday night and with a little maneuvering they fit... More

We were traveling from Monterey on our way to Seattle and decided to stay in Walnut Creek so we could visit the Blackhawk museum in the am. We made a last minute reservation, based on TripAdvisor reviews and once again, the rating of 4.5/5 was spot on! I had the manicotti. ..best I've ever had. My husband had the mushroom... More

When I am craving seafood pasta...this is our go to restaurant! I always order the Linguini alla Pescatora (about $20) which is Shrimp, clams, mussels, fish and spices in a wine tomato sauce. Excellent!!! And the baby spinach salad is also excellent. My friend usually orders the Clam Linguini and also raves about it. Parking can be a bit challenging,... More

I recently dined with my family at Salvatore's on a Sunday evening. We arrived at 5:00 and within the hour the restaurant was full. Each of had a different entree and they were all amazing, but I must say the Lasagna was the best I have eaten anywhere in the world. They only serve in Wednesday nights and Sundays so... More

I visited during a business trip in June. I sat in the bar and had an attentive server in spite of her task to add som new plastic cushioning material to the bar for the glasses. I had a salad and a gnocchi dish with cream sauce. While the dish had great flavor, the sauce was more like cream poured... More

We had a reservation for four before the theater. Salvatore's charges an extra $3 to split a salad, so we passed. We had two specials, the lasagna and the salmon, and two items on the regular menu, linguini pescatore and the eggplant parmigiana. The linguini was the best with lots of seafood. The other dishes were good, but not great.... More

This was my first visit. My friend and I went because we were looking for a place that served gnocchis. My friend makes this dish often so we had high expectations. I ordered the dish with the white sauce. I was not disappointed, they were delicious. The pear salad was fantastic as well. It is recommended that you make reservation... More
