Great food, ambiance, service and value...............

We are regular diners at this restaurant. The food is always reliable and well served. The staff are excellent and don't even charge for corkage with the regular customers. Nice cocktail bar and the best Lemondrop in Walnut Creek.

They have authentic talian food here. The service is good the place is cute and the staff is friendly. I think they make most of all of their own pasta and I've never had a bad meal here UmIt's also very conveniently located close to downtown and the theater. I have recommended this restaurant to more than a couple of... More

It was the first time that I ate a salmon fettuccine plate and it was so delicious and tasteful. Also, it's very nice environment and friendly.

We have been going to Salvatore's for at least 15 years, and even after long absences, we are greeted by name by the owner Angela, and Leslie (bartender). The restaurant offers both traditional and unique Italian dishes that uniformly and consistently are always delightful. Don't miss the Lasagna, ravioli in pesto cream sauce, calamari, Vongole, and Veal Salvatore, etc., etc.,... More

Visited them this past December without a reservation and they were nice enough to sit us even though they were full, we were a party of five. The place was pretty and it smelled incredible. The servings are big enough to be shared by two. Had the Melanzana Ripieni, it was very good. Also tried the gnocchi which were creamy... More

As a first time visitor, I was surprised at how good the food and service were! I picked this place because of the location and thoroughly enjoyed a lunch with family.

This restaurant is outstanding! Although I remember it when it used to be in San Francisco, they eventually moved to Walnut Creek, which was Walnut Creek's gain. The Pasta Pescatorre is to die for, I could not help but clean up my plate of that wonderful cream with a piece of bread. Delicious! My wife and I had dinner there... More

The food and service were excellent, once we were seated. Unfortunately, we were made to stand for about 20 minutes after our reservation time Saturday night, before being seated. During about the first half of our meal, the restaurant was overly crowded to the extent that it was difficult to hear each other across our table (of 4). After some... More

This family-owned restaurant opened 18 years ago (which says a lot). No cans in the kitchen; the ingredients are fresh. The style of some dishes is Sicilian, from which the owners originate. My Tortellini Papalina was delicious. One of my two companions agreed. The other had the ravioli, of which she approved. The welcome is warm, and the service was... More
