If you like seafood this has it all shrimp, clams, and scallops in a Beschmel sauce. Walk back into little Italy with Sinatra or Martin singing. Family owned who makes you feel like you are part of their family! Enjoy !!!!!

I absolutely love Salvatore's I try to eat there when I'm in town visiting family. It has a real Italian atmosphere with Frank Sinatra playing overhead and a cozy patio if you want to eat outside. The owners will come out and talk to everyone to make sure they're enjoying their meals and what-not. The Chicken Spidini is my favorite... More

Great food; great service and affordable prices!! We always look for new local restaurants when we travel. We are in KC Metro for a Royals baseball game and researched several places for our dinner. Salvatore's perked our interests. Wow! Authentic Italian! My husband had the Hill Special with Italian Sausage. I had Rigatoni Angela. Yumo! This came with salad; Caesar... More

A little place with a lot of flavor. Sinatra croons a tune while you enjoy your food. Good variety of dishes and a large portion of what you order is served to your table. My kids love the Italian butter for starters on the plentiful bread served. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The building is small and... More

This little out of the way restaurant is not much on looks from the outside, which is great because it means more interest is placed on the food instead of looks. It may be a small place but there food is out of this world. It's a restaurant that will make you feel like family and feed you like a... More

Doesn't look like mush from the outside and the decor is a little dated, however, the food is amazing. Good sized portions for the price, as well as, excellent service. We will be back. This may actually be where we go Italian in the KC area from now on.

Simply put "Amazing"!!! This place was more than I expected. From the outside it might not look like much but the taste of Italy is all inside. The atmosphere and smells of delicious Italian cooking will have you wanting to try every dish. They have an array of different choices and the portions are huge so don't worry you'll get... More

Probably if you live in Independence, MO, this is one of your favorite restaurants. It was recommended to us by our B&B innkeepers. The menu is very large, and in some cases, so are the dishes. The tour of Italy is good for at least two people. My husband and I both had veal and were very happy with our... More

From the time we walked thru the door to the time we left, we felt like family. The portions are huge and very delicious. We received a complimentary dessert from the owners which was very good. Highly recommended if you are in the KC/Independence area.

I ordered Shrimp Capellini D'Angelo and my husband had Rigatoni Angela. Both were awesome and the lunch portions were more than enough. The staff (Nathan and Robert) were extremely helpful and attentive and the food was great. Will definitely come here again.
