“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I have never had less than an excellent experience here. Whether it's coffee and a delicious fresh cake, a simple sandwich with the most beautiful Italian salami and cheese or one of the grand and excellent value tasting or regional dinners, it is always outstanding. I'm amazed that the owners, after all these years, Gip and John, manage to keep the experience feeling fresh and exciting. The staff are obliging and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Parking outside is now restricted to 2 hours mon-sat so can be tight but don't let that put you off trying this amazing family run gem of Leeds.

“Exceeded our high expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Having heard & read about Salvo's, we'd been wanting to go for some time, though it's about 40 miles from our home. It was even better than we'd expected!
We called for lunch midweek & it was buzzing. We particularly liked the blend of snacks & main dishes & the fact that we were offered small portions of pasta (as we don't like to eat huge amounts). My pasta with wild boar ragu was authentic & delicious! So was everything else.
The welcome, service & helpfulness of the staff added to a very positive experience
.... so this week we went back for another great lunch!

“A perfect dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We had a great Piedmontese dinner at the Salumeria, the annex to Salvo’s Restaurant. This was one of the regional dinners offered on Saturdays, where one gets a set menu, sampling a wide variety of dishes. As a family we are not easily satisfied and most of the time one of us would say ‘it was good, but…’ Well, this wasn’t the case, it was perfect. A fantastic array of some seven or eight (we lost count!) Piedmontese dishes including prosciutto, rabbit, marinated beef, veal, tuna and gnocchi with fresh vegetables, salads, apple and nut. The staff were very helpful, explaining each dish. We are now looking forward to the next set of regional dinners in May.

“Unique and authentic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I love experiencing food in new ways, and this genuinely feels like you're in a family restaurant/deli in Italy. The food was great (we did the 6 course taster menu) and really good value for money. The staff were really knowledgable and explained what every dish was and even what region it came from. They were really accommodating to my boyfriend's lactose intolerance and let him pick a pudding from the deli counter instead of the set menu creamy pudding. Will definitely go back and have recommended to a friend who is a head chef in an Italian restaurant (Vercelli's, Hexham - also awesome!)
