The restaurant is located in a quiet place and has good ambience. However, going there for a late lunch was spoiled by the poor service. Only one waiter was serving and who did not take the order properly. When reminded what the order was, the waiter argued. Nonetheless, the food is very good.

If you're a first timer it can be a little tricky to find - but ask around and you'll soon be pointed in the right direction. Food is consistently good with seasonal specials. Prices are reasonable, though it's not cheap. Can't fault it really; will be back.

The first time I went to La Salumeria I made the mistake of ordering pizza. Get the pasta! The gnocchi is particularly great and goes well with the house red. We also highly enjoyed the tiramisu. Finding the restaurant can be difficult, so make sure you have good directions. Service is very fast.

I was impressed with the quality of their pasta dishes. Try the chocolate mousse if you want a chocolaty desert.

I usually go to salumeria for business lunch. I like the place as it reminds me of the typical italian trattoria, good food and cozy enviroment. The owner is very friendly and welcoming.

This restaurant was hard to find...we had to park in the adjacent mall parking lot and walk our way around to it...but, we were unimpressed...the restaurant seems fixed in some tacky Italian time and tries to hard to be a Trattoria, with a very extensive menu, but...many foods missing once you start to ask. At the end of an uneventful... More

An Italian gentleman owns this restaurant and you can always find him there. It offers the best in Italian cuisine. The restaurant is small and has very personalized service that never disappoints. It is a perfect place for pizza or steak. The restaurant has a special challenge for those willing to order one of their large T-bone steaks – your... More

At first we couldn't get any service. After we were rushed. The food is great but this was the 4th time that they treated us like we were getting the food for free. Not going back!
