The service was great except for some language/communication issues. The food was of a high standard and quality the only detriment being the lack of fresh chillies to add to our pizzas to spice them up a little. Overall I’d have no hesitation in recommendation in recommending this authentic Italian experience. We were two couples enjoying an early dinner prior to a concert at the AO Arena which is really close by.

Very over priced for portion size and I was expecting freshly made pasta. It just was all very underwhelming. The waitress was also very rude

Really disappointed. Food completely different to the one in Corn Exchange. Pasta dish was like pasta with tinned potato soup, cheap sausage & grated cheese.

My wife and I both agreed that our visit to Salvis was underwhelming. It was a Saturday evening and they were full, however, the service was slow for both drinks and food and when my main arrived it was cool and had to be sent back to be heated up. The food was nice, nothing wrong with it but again nothing special and probably the smallest portion of pasta I've been served in a long time.
As other guests have pointed out having 1 toilet for the restaurant isn't really enough for a busy Saturday evening, having to queue with other guests outside of the Kitchen isn't really the best experience.

Would have preferred a table further away from the till, staff were very close and reaching over our table so we tried to move the table the opposite way. Overall great though!

Lovely night out - felt special but not too fancy, service and food was great. Prices about what you'd expect, maybe a little expensive compared to some other spots in town but on the other hand there was some great seafood at very reasonable prices. Would definitely go again!

Great to finally be back at Salvis for our traditional after board meeting treat!
We opted to sit outside which the staff happily accommodated - abs were great at adapting food to suit dietary needs.
Salvis hve a great range of gluten free pasta and are fantastic at adapting things.
Fantastic staff, so friendly and helpful this night and always.
Can’t wait to be back again soon!
