Very good quality food. But pricey considering it's just pasta. Tried a calzone and pasta with some vegetables and red sauce. Very tasty and good portions! Beautiful rustic decor and quick service.

Went for lunch on 6/6/19. Ordered the ravioli of the day which was with meat. The food was not hot, probably because the plates were cold and the meat was quite tough. Also had the mint cheesecake which I thought was ok - no more. On the positive side we had a nice glass of wine, good, friendly service and I liked the ambience of the place. I will give it another try but will have a pizza next time which is what most other people were eating. At £35 a head this was not a great value experience but as I say I will give it another try.

It was ok, the tuna tartare was a little tasteless, no sign of the capers and the cherry tomatoes tasteless. Calzone has some ham with a lot of mozzarella. It was ok, however I have eaten in better Italian restaurants in Manchester

I was really pleased with my starter, but the main course left a lot to be desired, my girlfriend also had an awful main, carbonara so cheesy she couldn't eat it.

The restaurant was quiet when we got in but we had to wait a few minute for someone to seat us. We ordered bruschetta with tomatoes and fried mozzarella for staters along with sparkling water, a wine and a beer.

The staters were lovely, although the bruschetta bread was a bit soft and needed toasting more. The drinks arrived and tap water instead of sparkling...not a big deal.

We then had a a calzone with artichokes and four cheese white base pizza. Both very nice but the filling in the calzone wasn’t hot enough. The dough however was great!

I would definitely go back as it’s one of the next pizzas I’ve had outside of Napoli

We booked a day ahead for a visit to Manchester and found all tables occupied when we arrived but for one that had been put against the backs of other diners. We were put there for five minutes whilst another table was vacated then moved over. The service was fast, friendly and polite; the food was superb, authentic Italian fare, freshly prepared to perfection. This is a lively venue, good for those of an outgoing nature who want to feel energised in their meals; every group kept to itself but the overall noise level was high from the sound of people enjoying themselves in social company rather than with background music (if there was any of the latter, I couldn't hear it!).

I very much recommend Salvi's Cucina and congratulate the family on their professional approach and great food.

Lovely authentic Italian restaurant in John dalton street. Food all good quality ingredients, fresh and tasty. We shared bruschetta, carpaccio and squid to start - carpaccio was stand out starter - but all three were top quality. Spaghetti vongole was wonderful - the right amount of good quality olive oil wrapped round spaghetti and clams served all dente. The sausage gnocchi with ricotta was wonderful. Would definitely return. Just returned from Italy and Salvi’s food is definitely comparable - and better than their sister restaurant in the exchange! Which is also good but not as atttentive friendly staff. ! Beware portion size - you might need to share-very generous
We will definitely return. Thank you Salvi’s

I booked this little gem after reading some really positive reviews. We weren’t disappointed, a lovely little authentic Italian restaurant. Having visited Italy many times I love a good italian restaurant and Salvi’s certainly didn’t disappoint. We were a group of five and we all chose pizza and pasta meals, each one was beautifully prepared and tasted delicious. We also had wine and dessert both which were delicious.
The service was ok, a delay in taking the order because a bigger party were in, however the food came very quickly once we had ordered.
The restaurant is small and cosy and the atmosphere is lovely, the only negative for us was sat in the window area it was very drafty and cold so maybe request a different area to sit on a colder day.

Excellent food, attentive and pleasant staff. Have been before with no issues. Just a shame that on this visit the Pizza oven wasn’t working, this was a birthday meal so some of the family had planned for pizza or bread starters. The alternatives were delicious but it meant that the menu was not as varied.

Both the main and dessert that I wanted to order weren't available (only told when trying to order them, not beforehand which would have been useful) . Had to ask twice for a jug of water. Couple that came in afterwards ordered before us even though we were waiting! The food we did actually have was nice but I'd say its more expensive than I would want to pay in the future.
