“Over rated”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

Goettingen is not a culinary capital. Filled primarily with not very good Italian restaurants, some decent Turkish ones, and a few nice cafes plus Gausskeller and Planea. Salvatore is the Italian everyone talks about, but our experience there was less than outstanding. The pasta was overcooked (German style), the pizza ok if a simple one is ordered. The ambiance is sort of Trattoria but too noisy and the service questionable. Still, of the Italian restaurants in Goettingen, it's probably the best, which isn't saying very much.

“Germans can like it, and not only them!”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

I am Italian, and having dinner in an Italian restaurant in Germany is always a bit risky... but in this place everything was OK, at least for me. I had a pizza and it was very good; a colleague took a pizza with gorgonzola and shrimps, an Italian would find it bizzarre, to say the least, but he liked it. Another one took some ravioli with truffle from the dishes of the day, and it was rather expensive. This is obvious, but I haven't checked if the price list of them was clearly exposed... Anyway, good food, and a good choice of wines, too.

“Typical Italian tratt, busy buzzy atmosphere”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

The service was friendly, the food fine (I had antipasti as a main course and husband had a pasta dish. Nice 2dl glasses of red and white from Sicily. Lively and very full the evening we were there, people waiting for tables. It was not expensive.

“Good Italian restaurant”
Reviewed March 25, 2010

Trattoria Salvatore is a very good Italian restaurant in the centre of Gottingen. The pizzas are amongst the best I've eaten anywhere; the orange salad was also excellent. Limited choice of desserts, but the Tiramisu is superb. The service can be a little unpredictable at times (often a waiter cannot be seen when needed), but this is a marginal flaw. My wife and I enjoy greatly eating here on visits to Gottingen and will certainly be back.
