This place has been making the best food for ages. The sauce is a perfect balance of everything you want in Italian gravy! The lasagna with two meatballs on top or try to stuff shells. Haven't had minestrone soup this good since Mama Leone

Salvatore's is a favorite with locals and family. Great service and huge menu with something for everyone - steak, seafood, pasta and pizza. Family owned and run with an attentive wait staff. Place gets crowded for weekend live music. Love the pizza and they are happy to make to order. Great for lunch and early dinners because you can carry... More

We have been coming here for 20 years. Great variety of home style Italian food. Best garlic pizza anywhere. The pastas come in a variety of shapes with a wide choice of sauces. They will adapt your food to your needs. Service is very attentive and helpful. The portions can't be beat.

We have been going to Salvatore for 20 years. The Food is really good with good portions. We have had Family Luncheons there and the service is always great. Two years ago, Wife and I had a Anniversary Event and we were very pleased with the service, as were our guest.

I recently visited Salvatore Pizza & Italian Restaurant, and had a wonderful lunch. It feels like you are in Italy. The portion size is generous, and prices reasonable. Excellent service. They offer a large selection of pasta, pizza, poultry, & seafood. Lunches and dinners are served with their delicious garlic bread & soup or salad. It is a good place... More

Yeah, this place is awesome. The chicken parm, ceasar salad, fresh bread and their pizzas all delicious. The had some live entertainment too while we were there and the service was awesome. If I lived in the area, this would be at least a weekly stop for me. I definitely recommend it.

So far, this was the best meal I had while staying in Commerce. The staff was very prompt and friendly. We didn't have to wait long for anything! They even gave us a complimentary dessert!

Family owned and operated since 1975 Benvenuti (Welcome)! The year was 1975 when proud owners of a little pizzeria & restaurant opened their doors to the public in the city of Montebello. Salvatore De Lorenzo and his wife Angela brought with them from Calabria, Italy, many family recipes passed from grandparents to parents with the taste and influence of good, honest Italian cooking made from the freshest ingredients along with a passion to cook. Growing up, there was always Nonna, Mamma, or Zia cooking in the kitchen filling the air with the aromas of fresh sauce and baked bread. The memories remain strong and alive today at Salvatore's Restaurant, one of the oldest family-owned Italian restaurants, where we continue the same family tradition in serving fresh quality Italian food to the next generation of customers. Come in and enjoy a sumptuous meal and southern Italian hospitality as you dine in the ambiance of that old world Italian charm while listening to live entertainment in the background. There is a saying in Italian, "chi mangia bene, vive bene." He who eats well, lives well. We believe this is the way dining should be experienced and we invite you to dine at Salvatore's. We look forward to seeing you again. Joseph and Anthony, brothers
