While visiting Manchester for a short weekend break, my friend found this family run restaurant and going from the amazing reviews we decided to go. And it lived up to our expecations. I would highly recommend this place if you love Italain food. The food was Italian perfect. It was so tasty and the wine complemented the food so well. The staff were warm and very welcoming. If I ever go back to Manchester i will certainly go back here to eat xx

Garlic tomato focaccia was to die for. I had fillet in mushroom + barolo sauce - beautiful. Was given the choice of tasty vegetables and rosemary potatoes (or chips and salad) - great. Waiter and staff were brilliant and authentic. A few dishes could have been slightly hotter. Pasta bolagnese (homemade yummy tagliatelle) tasted fantastic. All dishes looked great. Would recommend and go again. Could do with a menu on their website.

The restaurant was full and it seemed that the kitchen couldn't handle the demand. Our main dishes took one hour to be ready.
There was little seafood in the past dishes.

Salvi's food is lovely and the staff are always welcoming. It's a place to keep going back to if you want a good Italian meal with good Italian service. There were lots of other Italians in there too, an undoubted hallmark for quality! It a place to go with your kids in the daytime (like in Italy, kids are made to feel very welcome), with work, or on a date. Grazie!

Another excellent meal. Superbly authentic Italian food.
The only criticism I have is that the food came too quickly. Our friends didn't mind that so much.

Real Authentic Italian taste with great personalized service and a great experience for us.
The reviews online are great and to our opinion right.

As a party of 6 the staff were friendly and looked after us very well. We had an early start ( 6.30 pm ) but never felt like we were being rushed. All of us enjoyed our starters and mains. If I had to be a little picky then I would have preferred my bread with olive oil & balsamic vinegar starter to have had more bread and less bread sticks but that’s just my preference.

Our food was lovely, but my friend had a calzone and it was cold in the middle. Sent back, which then reappeared as the same one just been warmed up in the microwave? Still cold so sent back again. This time a fresh one was delivered. This was lovely she said and the manager could not do enough for her. He didn't charge for her meal, which was acceptable because of what had happened.
Will definitely return, as we loved it, and on this occasion it has not put us off.

Quaint little restaurant in a good location. The main meal was delicious but the starter was very dissapointing. Ordered the home made bread and got 2 pieces of bread and a dozen breadsticks.
The service was prompt on arrival and the food arrived in good time but we never seen the waitress after that.
Maybe they had an off night but overall a bit hit and miss.

We had a fantastic time at Salvi's! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they had decorated a lovely table for us and offered us a limoncella each as a gift! Absolutely wonderful service and food. Can't fault it. Highly recommended for an authentic Italian experience - all the staff were Italian. Lovely!

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.
