Just visited on a Saturday night and we parked in the wrong parking garage by accident (there is one right next to restaurant). The hostess told us they don't validate tickets for the garage we parked in. She must've told the owner bc then he came over and told us since we parked in the wrong garage he would give... More

I pretty much always go for the same thing, some kind of shrimp scampi dish and it's consistent and great. The cheesy garlic bread is do die for though.

I have eaten here four times in the past year and each time has been very enjoyable. The food is freshly made and you can taste it. It gets loud on the weekend fri/sat evenings, but that's to be expected since people go where the food is good and the atmosphere is inviting. Service is solid, just have some patience... More

I often frequent Salute for business dinners while I am visiting Hartford. The staff is always very friendly and the food is great. I always have a great meal and my business associates always comment on how much they enjoyed their food. My only complaint is the restaurant can get quite loud in the evening with the open bar area... More

My wife and I hadn't been to Salute in a couple of years and decided to have our anniversary dinner there this past Wednesday. Although it was a cold, rainy night (like the day we got married 37 years ago), the restaurant was like a beacon in the night. We were greeted warmly, shown to our table without a wait... More

went there with the family for brunch before a noontime UConn game and the food was much better than I anticipated; very good location in downtown Hartford with easy parking behind it

We went here in large group for a Saturday night out. We were very impressed! Salute had excellent Italian dishes, attentive waitstaff, innovative drink selections and an overall great atmosphere. Even though it was extremely busy the entire time we were there, we were well taken care of. The owner was also super nice. I recommend to anyone that is... More

Went for business lunch, and service was friendly and attentive, yet not encroaching. had the rose pasta with sweet sausage and 4 cheese tortellini. Delicious and hearty. offered bread pre-lunch entree which is always nice. ambiance was nice and calming.
