Great atmosphere, lovely comfort food. Hearty and tasty. Good beer on draught and intersting wine list. We were especially touched at their warm and helpful approach to my son's medical condition. They cooked special pasta for him which we brought with us, served it with a sauce that was perfect for him and didn't charge us a penny for their trouble! Not our first visit and certainly not our last. Thank you Salvi's.

We had a lovely meal and the staff were fantastic and very attentive. Probably being harsh with my rating for the ambience as we were basically the only people there at the time (we went at 6pm on a Monday evening), we would definitely go again!

I'm Italian and I hardly find good pizza abroad, but Salvi's pizza was a fantastic surprise. The typical pizza from Naples brought on your plate in Manchester. Didn't have the chance to try the pasta dishes but I'll definitely go back to have a taste.

Had a birthday meal with my daughter and was impressed with the ambiance and food . I liked the authenticity of it as an Italian restaurant - it felt more Italian than anglicised Italian. Also it didn't feel like alot of English Italian chain restaurants as the menu was extensive with lots of choice.

I visited on a Saturday with friends and the food and service was really good. It wasn’t overly busy but there was still a nice ambience. The shared focaccia bread was delicious as were the selection of pasta dishes we each picked.

Having never heard of this restaurant before, I arrived with an open mind. A lot of reviews raved about the food so perhaps my expectations were a little high.

The restaurant had a good atmosphere and the staff were friendly and the service was good. The pizza looked great and my friend said it was delicious but as for other dishes, they were ok and I think were a little pricey for what they were.

I have wanted to visit salvis for quite some time now, and finally got the opportunity to dine here on Friday evening. The occasion was my daughter's hen weekend. From the welcome to the farewell, everything was great. I couldn't fault anything if I am being honest. An authentic Italian restaurant rather than a modern chain, one that I have recommended to everyone I have spoken to since Friday night, and one that I will be returning to again, hopefully in the not too distant future. Great choice of food to suit all tastes, to die for mozzarella, great wine list, a tasty house rose and red, we didn't try the white, an honest waiter who told us we wouldn't need two plates of dough balls, you don't get that in a chain restaurant. All in all a gem of a restaurant. Thank you Salvis, see you soon.

Everything was perfect - like always. Great service, very friendly and thoughtful. We ordered pasta, pizza and antipasti - everything was just delicious. Thanks for an amazing evening! If you look for something special in the city centre, for a dinner before a night out with friends or to impress family, you should book a table at Salvi's.
