Where Everybody knows your name. . . and biscotti, too!

Well, we have that here in Hartford, and its called "Salute", located at the bottom of Trumbull Street near Bushnell Park.

I went to Salute for an after work happy hour, and the food and drinks were amazing. The patio is tucked away in a little nook downtown, so it's convenient for after work but a little quieter being off the beaten path.

A group of us used to order on a pretty regular basis but have stopped because we feel that the food has become skimpy. I ordered the goat cheese salad and literally had maybe 8-10 miniscule particles of goat cheese. I called because I actually thought they forgot to put it on the salad. Others were disappointed as well and... More

The food was amazing. The garlic bread is a must. We also got the sweet potato ravioli to start, and then the Rose Pasta and the Shrimp Picatta. All were fantastic--really well balanced flavors on tender homemade pasta, and the shrimp was cooked perfectly. Huge portions so we'll have it for lunch tomorrow! My husband is an Italian cook, so...

this is definitely one of my favorite restaurants. The whole staff is very friendly, helpful, and will laugh with you. We always go there after the theater. Have never had a complaint. We also get a theater discount, and biscotti to bring home . Between the four of us, we've probably had every entree. All are spectacular. The specials are... More

We went out as a group (our division's favorite lunch venue) on a perfect summer day. Most of had a pasta dish. I had my regular crabcake on a bed of greens with remoulade sauce. Noise level of the restaurant allows for audible conversations. Wait staff was very pleasant and professional. Service was quick and orders were accurate. Most lunch... More

I was in Hartford just for the evening on business and stopped at Salute for dinner. It's an Italian mostly restaurant, and while the pasta dishes that waiters were passing with on the way to other tables looked ample and great, I wanted to have a small steak so i ordered a small filet with cream and mushroom sauce, also...

First of all this place and the food and the people make this place what it is!!! The food must be done by an artist, the gatherings are always a priority for Jimmy as he wants your night for you and your friends or family to feel welcomed!

Salute has a great sausage and tortellini entre that I find delicious. Although Salute is not a top choice for me, their tortellini dish is.

We have been many times and the food is consistently wonderful. One of the true gems downtown. Extremely pleasant staff as well. Other restaurants should follow the example of Salute.
