I take my wife to Salvatore's every now and then when we want to go somewhere different. They've got the finest fried calamari in the area. Their salad is excellent along with most of their entrees. This restaurant is part of the Garozzo's operation and these boys know Italian food. They have a massive meatball that goes with their spaghetti... More

My wife and I decided to do Valentines Day a day early so we decided on Salvatore's so we could stay close to home. It was our first night out since we had our first child, and I couldn't have been more impressed with the food or service. We arrived on time for our reservation and were welcomed by a... More

Food is really good. Coming from a person who is not into american italian food i think that is a good compliment. I dont like my food bathed in salt and cheese and the food from this restaurant is not like that. We had the ravioli for appetizer - it was soooo good but I can't tolerate dairy so it... More

Great chicken spedini . The dip for the bread is a good starter and you can't go wrong with the house salad.

The food is excellent.Service great. A little noisy. Would have preferred a table away from the loud crowd in the center of the room

The Bread Dipping oil was too watery. I thought V's Italian was much better. This place was OK. But I probably won't go back.

I met some local friends for birthday celebration here. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and there was a nice selection of mid range wines. I was disappointed that caprese salad was not on the menu, and my Alfredo dish was mediocre at best. My dinner companions were happy with their meals, so I'd give this place one more try,... More

Atmosphere is great but the food is not so good. I love Italian and can honestly say this is by far the worst I have had in the Kansas city area. The pasta sauce was so this k, yet really had no flavor at all, my husband had a completely different dish and didn't like his either. Service was also... More

This place first has beautiful decor, great for a romantic dinner or special occasion! Tablecloths & waiters are dress like your eating at a $$$$ establishment but your in a $$ price. We stop for lunch... More
