We love this place. We often dine here on our way to the Florida Studio Theater. They have the best eggplant parmesan I've ever had and my wife loves the mussels. Great service and the live music made a lovely evening.

Been here to Salute many times and always a favorite of ours. We sat outside amidst the twinkling lights on a warm evening and enjoyed the great music. Not too loud and perfect dinner music. Food excellent as always. Dover Sole - superb.

Their menu is really high quality. They bring their olive oil from Italy where they harvest and press the olives. I only have good experience here. Great food and service.
