Family -owned Italian restaurant always better than the chain restaurants.

My husband & I were traveling across country, 10 hours per day in a truck after clearing out the furniture from his recently deceased parents. We pulled into Indepedence, MO late in the evening, and called Salvatore's to see how late their kitchen was open. They assured us that the kitchen would be... read more

We went for dinner here while on the road traveling through KC. Our decision was based on other Trip Advisor info. I don't want to over react to the experience we had and give them too bad of a grade because I think they generally provide very good food with good service. Here is the story. We ordered an appetizer... More

This was our first visit to Salvatores. I kinda researched Italian restaurants in KC since we don't live there. I wanted a non chain great authentic place. The atmosphere, service, lighting, decor, music, and the FOOD were all fantastic. It's not a fancy place, but it's classy and just a bit elegant. You can go in jeans or shorts or... More

Okay, I eat out a lot like a lot of people. Most meals are average to good but few are memorable. Salvatore's gave us two great meals that were nothing less than 5 star and memorable. I had the Rigatoni Angela my wife had Chicken Marsala (Pollo Marsala). Yum Yum I cannot wait to go back. They WERE NOT playing... More

Stopped by to eat lunch with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed the food! We had an order of sangria to go with lunch. For an appetizer we ordered the mushrooms and I definitely recommend them, the sauce they were in was delicious. For an entree I had the fruit of the ocean pasta (I forget what the Italian name...

Took my daughter-in-law to Salvatore’s in June for her birthday and it was fantastic! We had both been there before but not for a long time, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere greeted us, followed by impeccable service and fantastic food. We will be back.

My husband and I have certain food allergies that make it hard to eat Italian food, though we love it. Salvatore's is an excellent place. Their friendly staff and owner catered to our needs and made sure everything was safe and wonderful for us. The food is excellent.

We arrived without a reservation. Fortunately, it was early and we were able to get a great table. From the moment we were greeted by our hostess to paying for our meal, every aspect of this experience was as good as it gets. Absolutely no complaints. The wait staff was attentive, the food portions were more than generous and some... More
