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.

Excellent Italian - But what do you expect!

Said in a hand signal with palm upwards an all fingers and thumb together, bobbing slightly up and down is the mainland Italiian way to say this. The food is always awesome, wine fabulous and not costly, and portions huge (make the sign).

This was a nice cozy Italian restaurant with a friendly wait staff, good food and generous portions. The wine was nothing special but was acceptable. Overall, this is a low key comfortable, friendly restaurant.

Thank you for your review. We were delighted to have you on Valentines Day and am glad all went well on such a busy day.

The food is fantastic. They have a thick crust pizza that is absolutely one of the best I've ever had, it takes a little longer, but is well worth the wait. Located on 2nd street, which is one street removed from the riverfront, this cozy little place is well worth the effort of finding it.
