Description: Salvatore's "trattoria" has been a staple in the downtown Muscatine area since 1985, when Reno Vitale moved here from Palermo, Sicily, the original home of pizza and pasta. In Italy, the word "trattoria" means a small, informal restaurant, often off the beaten path on a small block or street. Here at Salvatore's, we try to capture the mood, flavor and taste of the famous Italian trattorias. Come into our locally owned and operated restaurant tonight for a taste of real Italian flavor right here in Iowa.

We walked in to the front of the reataurant and there was no one to greet us. After several minutes we waived to a waiter at the back of the restaurant who waived back. We decided to seat ourselves. Several more minutes passed and the waiter finally arrived menus in hand and acknowledged our presence. Several minutes later he came back with our water and asked for our order. We promptly ordered our meals and a few minutes later our salads arrived.
This is where it goes downhill. The waiter repeatedly kept coming back to our table saying just a few more minutes and your meals will be out. Two or three more minutes and your food should be out. After the fifth time and 27 minutes of waiting we asked to pay for our salads and promptly left. I think a vist from a manger and an apology for the delay would have been a nice gesture on the part of the restaurant. Neither happened. Very disappointing that an establishment that is rumored to have such good food has such awful service.

This place is distinguished for its great food and friendly atmosphere. Last time I went I ordered some pasta instead of the pizza and it was great. The owner is always friendly and the place is very clean. Recommended.

GREAT food, Wonderful Service, and Delightful Ambiance! Salvatores offers authentic Italian cuisine from a master chef. Wednesday's Prime Rib night, and get there early, as they do run out from time to time. Simply the finest cuisine in Muscatine, at a very affordable price.

We were traveling through Iowa from Des Moines and stopped at Salvatore's by recommendation. The Pizza was like the one I grew up with. Service was excellent, timing was a little slow but that is what is expected at a authentic food establishment. The wine list is very complete and some of the more intriguing wines were priced very competitively. Would recommend over and over! The people who ran it were very sincere and hospitable!
