“Great Italian in the heart of Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We went to Salvatores on the recommendation of many people. The atmosphere was great in an open courtyard. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The portions are huge so ny husband and I shared the Sunday Gravy. We also had the bruschetta and it was the best we have had anywhere including at home in the States. The chocolate mousse dessert was amazing not too sweet just right. I would recommend Salvatores to anyone looking for good Italian and something different outside of Mexican food.

“Terrible food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

After 2 fabulous meals at Hacienda Cocina and Los Tres Gallos (see our reviews), we decided to try Trip Advisors top rated Italian- Salvatore's. Atmosphere and service were fine. However, the food was terrible! If you are from the NYC area, the SF Bay Area or for that matter, any large city,
stay far away and wait to go to your local Italian favorite. I had the pork shank which was tender, but was lumped together with a gummy, greasy pasta Alfredo. Any value the pork had was overcome (buried) by the pasta. My wife had the special of the night, a chicken rollatini. She was told it was chicken stuffed with prosciutto and Gouda cheese. What she got was 2 chicken breasts stuffed with what seemed like 8 oz. of cheese and a small amount of prosciutto breaded and then deep fried in butter. A sweet vermouth-like sauce covered all. Next to it was the greasy pasta alfredo. Together there must have been a weeks worth of fat. She ate a 1/3 after scraping off the cheese. We debated whether to order dessert and decided the highly rated tiramisu might salvage the meal. It did not. What appeared was a sugary cookie covered with 6 warm mounds of what seemed like cool whip dribbled with Hershey 's chocolate syrup. Incredible that this restaurant could make even the top 200 in Cabo.

“Quaint but Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This little hole in the wall was recommended by a friend. The staff were all cheerful and attentive but most outstanding was the food. Food QUALITY, QUANTITY and TASTE were fantastic!! My wife and I shared a plate of shrimp and fish cannelloni and the marinated pork shank....DELICIOUS!!!

“Salvatore's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Salvatore's offers huge portions at a reasonable price. The atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant is great but they could really elevate the experience if they used nice restaurant furniture instead of card tables and plastic office chairs. I have eaten here many times and the food can be very good it just depends on what you order. Stick with their classic dishes, Lasagna, Porketta, Baked Rigatoni, spaghetti and meatballs and you are sure to have a filling pretty good meal! For wine try the Carmenere, if you like a full bodied red, it's from Chile but has the essence of a bold California wine.
