“A true Italian restaurante/The best in Greensboro”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We have eaten at Salvino's many, many times and found their menu and food to be authentic and delicious. On weekends, it is imperative to have a resrvation. Their new quarters are larger with a bar on the other side of the dining room wall. And if you do not see what you want on the menu, they will try to make it for you.

The service is excellent. They will bring you some warm Italian bread when you have ordered accompanied by some garlicky olive oil to get you in the mood for some excellent food. We have never had a meal that did not please us

“Average price, too expensive.”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

While the food was good we felt the food was overpriced. Also they didn't take reservations. Still searching for a premiere Italian restaurant in Greensboro.

“Heavy meal”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

New location is an improvement. Gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce is wonderful. However, salmon was overdone, and filet wasn't the best cut. Generous portions, but lacking in quality

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

This restaurant has great food.I have never had a bad meal here. They don't take reservations but they do have call ahead seating. We have never had to wait for a table.

“Best Italian in the south”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Just to put this in context, we are from NY and grew up on Italian. We had gave up on ever finding great Italian food in NC. But this is the real deal! The ambiance is not out of this world but who cares when you have escargot in garlic and good fried calamari. The eggplant appetizer is delicious as s the gnocchi with Gorgonzola -- but both are super rich and better shared. Caesar salad is really good too. Scallops Soave is my favorite and my husband always goes for whatever the special pork or veal is-- never disappoints. If they have lamb shank or Osso bucco get it! They don't take reservations which is hard if you on a time frame but if you are willing to wait it is worth it! We are hooked. This and 1618 are our regular places to dine. Salvinos never disappoints.
