Having read the good reviews, we were looking forward to visiting Salvi's. We weren't disappointed by the food or the service which were both good, but the place, which was a bit grubby overall, would benefit from a deep clean.

Best Italian food I've had outside of Italy, and compares favourably to a lot I've had in Italy!!!

Always a lovely experience at Salvi's. Tasty food, freshly prepared with good service. Overall reasonably good value for money across the menu; what you would expect to pay for city centre dining. Although I would say that £9 for a Caprese salad which consisted of a beef tomato a few cherry tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella was a bit steep - but then the mozzarella was flown in special from Italy (and it was very tasty)!

We were seated late due to the diners on the table before us leaving late. This was not the restaurants fault . They were extremely apologetic and gave the party a drink each to compensate. After being seated everything was wonderfull. Will go again when next in Manchester

This is an excellent restaurant, tucked away on John Dalton street. It is a cosy, intimate venue with an excellent ambiance and attentive service. My fellow diners, who were on their first visit here, said it was a great choice. The food was superb and great value. This was definitely a place for a repeat visit.

Every table was full in this restaurant with people waiting to be seated which tells you how good the place is! There were five in our group and we all had different things - pizza, pasta, gnocchi - and all of us said how much we had enjoyed the food. Lovely pinot grigio, too!

Food is good, service is good, except the fact that I can't speak Italian. When we order in English, the waitress confirm with Italian, so 1 of the order was wrong. Dessert was bad.

Lovely food and plenty of it and a little different from your larger Italian restaurants. Bistro style ambience in a cosy environment keeping it a bit more personal. Service good and a genuine Italian feel and we were not rushed giving us time to rest between courses. Will certainly go back.

I probably visit Salvi's restaurants more than anywhere else in Manchester. This time I took four people who had never been before. They loved it as much as I do. If you've never been, this is a great place for 'proper' Italian food. Don't miss the clams or, according to one of my companions, the gnocchi.

We have been to Salvis Cucina a fair few times now and it never fails to impress. Whether you are after a quiet, intimate dining experience or to celebrate an occasion, I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is yummy, the wine delish and the service great.

Waiting staff were rude on our arrival. Softened up a little after that but were brusque. Offered us a complementary shot of limoncello which would have been a nice touch but got a bit offended and pushy when we said no thanks. The food was bland and under-seasoned. We didn’t complain because we were with friends and didn’t want to cast a shadow of awkwardness over the evening.

Lovely food, good service, fantastic value for money. Only negative was that whilst waiting for the ladies I found it a bit off putting to be able to see an open kitchen door where washing up was being done. Would rather not have seen the mess

A friend and I were visiting from New York and had a craving for Italian food. We were not disappointed! Everything was wonderful! The pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious. The serving portions were large. We were very happy to find this restaurant.
