Took some visiting relatives to Salvatore's, which is a mid-priced Italian restaurant in the inner city of Bristol. Parking is not easy, particularly when it is raining, but can be found on the side streets on the roads leading up to Redland.
The staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Very much a family restaurant, with big family groups and kids, which is fine.
The restaurant is incredibly noisy, with no cushioning of the sound, which reverberates and booms around the many facets of the bare walls and floor.. This was not helped by the party at the next table, screaming with laughter at the top of their lungs and turning the air blue. Polite requests for moderation were met with shrieking derision. We had to ask to move to another table, but it was still so noisy one could barely talk to the person opposite, never mind the others at the table.
The food was atrocious, probably the worst Italian food I have ever eaten. Having observed the dishes being served at other tables I asked for a medium rare steak, which was dry, cold and overcooked. Some members of our group liked the fish that was served, but despite offers of free liquor at the end we fled into the night. Overall, one of those memorable big mistakes!

Hello and Thank You for taking the time to review Salvatore's Kitchen. I was very concerned to hear about the steak you received and about the noise made by the party next to you and would like to take the time to apologise to you. We take pride in the customer service that we give here at Salvatore's Kitchen and giving staff the training to make a guest's visit to us enjoyable .The offer of free Limoncello is just a part of our courtesy and has no other intentions other then make our customers visit pleasant .I would like to contact you personally to talk about how we can make your next visit memorable. Thank You.
