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.

This is the most fabulous truly authentic Italian food - no creamy Carbonara just the real deal eggs lardons Parmesan and perfectly cooked pasta. All of our pasta dishes were delightful preceded by perfect focaccia, and light and dreamy Tiramisu. Mostly Italian clientele. What more can I say. Ah yes - charming staff!

The Squid was cooked to perfection and my partner said that the Ravioli was the best she'd ever had!
Thanks also for the new discovery, Meloncello!! Amazing experience!

I've been to this restaurant many times both as a couple and a group before a concert. Most recently I visited here on a Sunday evening for my partners birthday. I booked online and informed them of the occasion. When I arrived I was so surprised and grateful that they had bought a balloon, banner and table confetti and decorated for our arrival. We had some amazing food, (although this is the case every time we visit, and the reason we keep returning) and they then brought a slice of cake with a candle, dimmed the lights and sang happy birthday. This really made the evening a bit more special and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Salvi's Cucina to anyone and everyone! Also, just a note, the share board is divine and all the portions are huge, you won't leave here hungry, or disappointed! The staff couldn't do more for you, a true credit.

Four of us went on a late January Sunday afternoon and had two starters and four main courses. Both pizzas were fantastic and the same can be said for the gnocchi and the spaghetti with clams.
Drinks are a tad pricey but we only really go for the food.
Thoroughly recommend this place.

We booked here as we were looking for somewhere near to Manchester Palace Theatre for a pre-show meal, and online reviews were excellent. We had a very enjoyable meal and could not fault the food we had. The service was excellent, and it was lovely that the staff were authentically Italian. I would comment only that I felt the pasta selection was a little limited - I would have liked a king prawn / seafood with chilli option. I did have the seafood with tomato tagliatelle which was awesome, but I would always go for a spicy option if it was there. Also, sadly we were quite cold. Our table was directly opposite the front door and unfortunately we were getting a cold draught every time the door was opened. Aside from those two minor things, we had a great meal.

A very positive experience throughout. The food was exceptional and the service prompt and friendly. Having already visited their smaller establishment I was well versed in the quality of salvis name. However, it's always reassuring to have another lovely experience. Would recommend this eatery without any hesitation.
