Totally amazing sandwiches

This is a MUST see place in Boulder. The hot pastrami sandwich on their freshly baked bread is simply to-die-for.

Pick up a menu and take some time deciding as the choices are many: hot, cold 6",12"subs, rolls, which sauces, which cheeses, which vegies. There are also salads,speciality items and soup. They also serve breakfast sandwiches and have an extensive catering menu. There are at least 2 other locations, but this is the mother store. And feels most like an... More

From the name/look of the place, we expected something a little more like a NY deli. Sandwiches were good, but nothing you couldn't get at the Kroger deli. Boar's Head cold cuts on Italian bread. Sides are available but cost prohibitive. Service was good!

Salvaggio's is probably the only place in Boulder where you can get decent deli sandwiches. The roast beef with everything is the best around. Prices are reasonable. The Pearl Street location is take out only, but in nice weather, you can find benches to sit & eat. The service can be a little rude, but after living in Chicago &... More

I've been going to Salvagio's for over 15 years and I'm sad that the bread has gone down hill so much. They've downgraded the quality of their bread recipe twice over the 15 years and it's sad you can't get a good sandwich on NY style Italian bread any more. Everything else has stayed top notch with good ingredients and... More

Bread is good. Meat is Boar's Head, which is terrific. Sandwiches are reasonably sized, but not super generous. Service isn't the fastest, so lines can form around lunchtime. One thing I didn't see that surprised me was the option to add bacon to a sandwich. No bacon?? One star off for that.

It surprises me that - on "The Hill" in Boulder - Salvaggio's hasn't caused Cheba Hut to close, but I think it's because Cheba Hut is a good alternative when Salvaggio's line is out the door (and this has happened to me often). That just goes to show you how great the place is! It has more of an "east-coast"... More

Every time I'm in Boulder I stop here and try a new sandwich. So far I've had the meatball, prime rib and the cold Italian. All were excellent. If your a clean freak and need your restaurant to look and smell like a hospital this place is not for you. The guys here are loud and a little crazy but... More

Forget the service, it's all about the great tasting sandwiches! Their Italian is one of the best I've ever had.
