Simply... a great dining experience

We were looking for a low keyed night out with good food, a full bar and a “not over the top” menu. This establishment fulfilled all of those items. The waiter staff was very, very personable and efficient. Two of us had the Calamari Dore (steaks) and the others had pasta dishes (shrimp... read more

When we want a pleasant , quiet restaurant with well trained wait staff and good food we come here. Too many restaurants now are so noisy that I cannot enjoy my meal or have a conversation with friends. We have entered many, looked around and then left. Not here. Tablecloths, professional wait staff who know how to do their job,... More

The food at Salvatore's is like going to Italy. The pasta dishes melt in your mouth and the fish dishes are fresh and tasty. The service and the owners attention to every detail was more than good.

Salvatore was a last minute choice. Definitely a locals place located one street off of Main. Table was not immediately available so we waited in the bar where the service was not overwhelming. Nonetheless, we finally received ordered drinks about the same time our table came available. Once at table our service was again very friendly but certainly not prompt.... More

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
