We are so glad to find this place while over visiting the Truman Library. We had lots of barbecue & looking for good Italian! 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

We chose this restaurant because of all the great reviews. I'm really glad this independent restaurant does well, but I'm just offering a different view. While the portions were ginormous, we found the food super salty in lieu of actual flavor (and we ordered the chicken spiedini based on the reviews). I had wanted to ask about their wines, but...

This is a great Italian restaurant. Food is all good, but the spedini is wonderful. You can even get a half order on most menu items if you don't want leftovers to take home. Try an Italian Margarita. They are wonderful. Service is just as good as the food.

Service good, people good and the food was good. It wasn't what I would call excellent just good. Good atmosphere and it was a nice place for a special occasion if the food was better.

Not knowing there are a lot of Italian population in Indepemdence, we were told by hotel owner Italian will be a good food choice. As the suggestion given by the hotel and my own research match, we decided go for Italain food for the night. We chose the one is closer to hotel and have higher review by Yelp, the... More

Awesome food with good service with prices that a famly of 4 can afford. Try the Spidini, the ravioli or just about anything on the menu. We have never had a bad meal. The server will even change an order to meet your request. Close to the interstate off of 40 Hwy. so very easy to locate.

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
