I love everything about this little restaurant/deli! I'm a huge fan of Italian cuisine, and the food here is better than a lot of what I ate on a recent trip to Verona!
Whether you're after a coffee, a quick bite or a family meal, there's something for everyone. I'd recommend the linguine amatriciana and the lemon polenta cake/lemon torte.
I also love that a lot of their ingredients are available to buy, which I think make great gifts.

“Relaxed with good food”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Salvo's salumeria has long been the place my family go to celebrate or have a coffee on a hard day an it had always been good. It could be cheaper but on reflection the quality of food overshadows the high price. I nearly alway have the daily special or -meat pasta, it is always beautifully presented and leaves me feeling satisfied.

“Amazing Food - nearly the best”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I thought Salvos was the best restaurant in Leeds for a long time. The food is amazing and authentic. The only down fall is you cant book tables unless over a certain number of people so you have to wait upstairs in the hot bar area for a table to come free which could be over an hour.

Hi Diamond Diva,
Thank you for your comments it is great to hear that you regard Salvos as 'The Best' Just to let you know you can book at Salvos for any lunchtime or evening regardless of the number of guests. We do have a lobby area where guests can have some drinks whilst waiting for a walk in table also. We hope to see you back at Salvos soon.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Have stopped here for coffee, lunch and Sunday brunch many times and have always enjoyed the experience. Super Italian cooking and great coffee. Staff have always been willing to tweak the menu to suit my children too.
