Had lunch at Salvatore's and our service was very good. The food was pretty good but not as good as I'd expected based on other reviews. The food just seemed to be a bit lacking on the flavor front.

So many tasty entrees on menu it's hard to envies them all. I ate till I was ready to burst and still brought home leftovers for another meal. FWI: on... More

Our favorite Italian restaurant. Quiet atmosphere with Italian host. Great menu to choose from. Great for special occasions. Recommend the chicken Samantha or the chicken Garozzo. You will not be disappointed I guarantee.

Dinner is really a romanic atmosphere, but lunch is a great value, you get a lot of food and at. Reasonable prices. The food is excellent and the service is attentive. Great sauce.

The pasta is doused in sauce. I'm guessing the sauce is on the pasta for quite some time before its served...possibly even cooked in the sauce because the sauces are not only plentiful but the pastas are soggy from soaking it up. I hated it. That being said, my husband LOVED it. He said it was the best spaghetti he'd... More

The server recommended an excellent red wine that topped... More

We were traveling and went to this restaurant based upon a recommendation from locals. We were seated immediately and our waitress was very kind and efficient. No issues with the service. One person in our party sent her entree back because it was just barely warm. A couple other people in our party had the same issue but chose not... More

When you see an Italian restaurant shown in the movies you get a dark quiet place full of Italians, with candles on the tables, and Sinatra or Martin in the background. This perfectly describes the atmosphere here. The food is all wonderful. The chicken spedini is terrific. I love the cannelloni as well. It has a slightly sweet creamy tomato... More
