Fantastic Food and Great Atmosphere

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

I will not eat Itailian food anywhere else. Period. Family run - owner always the gracious host. Food is consistently excellent. Authentic. Staff are friendly. Drinks are good. I enjoy the wine/dinner pairing special events. Very good value. I liked them on Facebook to know about the events.

This is one of our all time favorites, it is a family owned restaurant and in our neighborhood, that makes it convient but the calming atmosphere, and excellent service keep us returning. Elegant dining, cloth table covers, soft lighting, with large food portions. I especially like the chicken spidenni de angelo it has a light sauce, tomato and olive oil,... More

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.

We have had lunch here several times, today was just as delightful. Rachelle was a wonderful waitress and was attentive to our every need. The food was awesome like always. 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
