When out of towners ask for a nice authentic restaurant in my home town, I always mention Salvatores. I mentioned it to a team coach from "upnorth" and she took her high school team there and loved it. Thanked me for it later. Salvatores has an at home feel (meaning relaxed) while serving very good authentic Italian food. The owner... More

We come here often for great Italian food. The pizza is always top notch, the manicotti is terrific, and both the chicken parmesan and marsala are so tasty. The decor could use some updating, but the delicious food outweighs the ambience.

Albeit we traveled with a group of senior parishioners (n = 55), the management was unprepared on handling this group despite a reservation made 2 months before, and was lost/forgotten until a reminder call was made 2 weeks before the visit. The back room was set up and half the group did the buffet which emptied quickly and half the... More

I love this place! The food is always delish and there are large portions. I always end up taking half of mine home. The chicken marsala and chicken picata are two of my favs! Everything is always served steaming hot, the way it should be! The pizzas are so yummy and piled with toppings! The service is good and the... More

I'm Italian. And I live in Grand Rapids. It's not exactly little Italy over here on the west side of the state but this place is decent. The manicotti was average and the garlic bread was cheap and too soft for my taste. I can't say that I find myself craving the food at this place; average at best.

We were looking forward to eating here but everything we ordered had zero flavor and the chicken was terrible. Its sad because we were looking forward to having a restaurant so close to home.

I've been eating at Salvatore's since I was a kid. The food is always excellent. The service can be spotty, but the meal is always worth it.

We were first timers and it was great the buchetta was the best and the pizza was great we had the taste of grand rapids and it was very good. We finally found a pizza that they are not afraid to put sauce on.

Been here numerous times over the years. Was told about Salvatore's by my receptionist. From Pasta to Pizza they do it well. The chicken Piccata and Manicotti is probably my favorites. Parking can be a challenge for the main lot. they have an overflow lot across the street.
