It's located at the bottom level of an apartment building.
Food is pricey, but you get value for your money.

I was warned about the prices in this restaurant and everything I was told was true. The owner has a high opinion of himself and this comes across as a kind of "attitude" to customers who decide to make their own decisions about what to select from the menu.

On the plus side the food was good even though my colleagues mentioned that the soup chosen was overburdened with salt. I didn't have that experience. The wine list was fairly limited but the wines provided were of a fairly good standard. The food was served promptly but the occasional smile would not go amiss.

The restaurant is ideally located for couples who wish to enjoy a meal for two in a secluded location.

This restaurant used to be a favourite for my husband and I. However the service and attitude of the staff and to a certain extent the owner has always leaned towards the snobbish side. The kitchen once got my order wrong and there were hardly apologetic about it let alone offering to make up for it by complementary desert or anything.
The ambiance is beautiful and it is a hidden little place withing an apartment block. nice for a quiet romantic dinner.

It was challenging to find La Salumeria (there's no roadside sign) but once inside the apartment complex you feel like you've discovered a wonderful hidden gem that only people in the know are aware of. The complementary bread came fresh from the oven & the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and pepper were ready at the table for self-service. I ordered the seafood fettucini on my friend's recommendation and it was perfectly prepared. I would've liked to have more options of wines by the glass but the food more than made up for the single house wine by the glass option. The homemade chocolate gelato was rich, creamy & divine. Though expensive, I can't wait to go back!

Note: 1) There is virtually no bar seating-- only 2 wooden seats crammed in front of a tiny bar, 2) The "outdoor" seating has been covered over by a sunroom so it's not really outdoors.
