At this pleasant neighborhood pasta and pizza restaurant, you can order gluten free penne or spaghetti as a substitute in any of their dishes except of course lasagne. I ordered penne with marinara sauce and added a grilled chicken breast which was nicely cut into pieces and mixed into the sauce. Pasta was nicely al dente, not mushy as gf... More

My girlfriend and I ate at Salvatore’s last night, it being my first time ever eating there. I realize there are many, many great reviews before mine, which leads me to believe either people do not know good food and service, or, more likely, I was there on an “off” night. We were immediately sat and ordered waters, asking for... More

Homemade pasta! Very tasty! Excellent selection on the menu including wines. Excellent food, excellent service. Clean. The exterior, strip-mall frontage is deceiving, don't let it fool you, this place is a class restaurant!

Warm and inviting atmosphere with the best homemade pasta around! Friendly service and fresh out-of-the-oven hot bread when you arrive gets the meal off to a great start. The menu selection is quite diverse and the prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food delivered piping hot to your table. A real bonus is the fresh grated... More

Fantastic homemade pasta and sauces. Bread and flavored butter is wonderful! Salads are good. Appetizers great too! Never had desert - always too full as the servings are good and hot and plentiful!

I've had everything from the burger to the pasta. Meals start out with fresh bread. I would also suggest the fried zucchini for a starters​, it's really good. I don't think anyone would be disappointed at the quality of food

We will return. The food was delicious. Our waitress was seemingly new -- made a few basic mistakes like not asking if we needed refills and then forgetting to bring back my glass of iced tea -- but these things happen & it didn't change my opinion on the restaurant's quality. She'll learn😊. I am pleased to have this caliber... More

The only true Italian part of this place is the name. The bread was doughy and greasy. The service was too. The main meal was mediocre and the imported beer was skunked. And, no one cared.
