Description: Salvatore's "trattoria" has been a staple in the downtown Muscatine area...
Salvatore's "trattoria" has been a staple in the downtown Muscatine area since 1985, when Reno Vitale moved here from Palermo, Sicily, the original home of pizza and pasta. In Italy, the word "trattoria" means a small, informal restaurant, often off the beaten path on a small block or street. Here at Salvatore's, we try to capture the mood, flavor and taste of the famous Italian trattorias. Come into our locally owned and operated restaurant tonight for a slice of real Italian flavor right here in Iowa.

I stop here for dinner almost every time I get to Muscatine. The restaurant is cozy with big booths. This time I had spaghetti and meatballs, just wonderful. Other diners had fettuccine Alfredo and ravioli. Everyone was very satisfied.

I had pizza (thin crust), salad and a cannoli & all were very good. The pizza was tasty, but average (i'm from Chicago); the crust was a little too thick & there were too many veggies (& they were too big) for small pizza. The salad was very good - mixed greens & olives - i had the creamy garlic.... More

Hi Friend. It sounds like your expectations weren't quite met, but not quite sure what we can do you better your experience. We smile when we hear that our restaurant isn't the same as.."Chicago" or..."Fill In The Blank"... in that we are one restaurant rubbed up against the city of Chicago's vast quantities of any type of restaurant. We hope... More

We were visiting on a stormy evening with half the power out in Muscatine. The place was busier than usual and there was a new waitress working. Yet, they came through with flying colors. Excellent Italian food at reasonable prices. Good service considering the conditions. Make a point to dine here.

This is a quant italian/Sicilian resteraunt with a quiet atmosphere. The service was exceptional, not to mention the meal. We had a mini pizza for an app, and a salad to go with our mouth watering lasgna.

I met a family member I had not seen for some years here for dinner. I had checked trip advisor and gave him 4 choices...we agreed on Salvatores. When I called for reservation, they asked me if I wanted to reserve prime rib since it was on special for Wednesdays. Not knowing if my guest would want it or not,... More

Thank for the review. Prime Rib Wednesday's have been a sell out since its inception a few years back, slow cooked to tender (near) perfection. From the beginning of your review to the desert, we strive that once you make the choice to visit, each moment and decision are good for you, our customer. Please, come again and try our... More

Passed through Muscatine on our way west, and enjoyed a quiet, delicious Italian dinner. Husband chose the ziti, and I loved the chicken/spinach ravioli. Go hungry, portions are generous, or just right if you are hungry. After dinner be sure to check out the riverfront, a nice place to stroll on a summer evening.
