The service was good (waitresses) but there was inconsistencies in wearing a mask - the waitresses did, but the manager didn't.
Would have been nice to see more measures in place in the toilets too, as its a bit cramped.

Hands down the best Italian in Manchester, service is always impeccable and the food is fantastic and so authentic... One of the few Italian restaurants that do pizza bianca much to my other halfs delight. Very generous portions too!

We love it in Salvi's Cucina and have been regularly since it opened. The food is delicious and unpretentious. The welcome from Giovanni and his team is always warm and friendly.

My friend said it was the best pizza she had ever had. The food was delicious and staff spot on. Only reason for scoring good for value was the wine list. All were £25 upwards with no cheaper options. Food itself was excellent value for money.

Sorry but I wasnt particularly impressed with my Bruschetta or my main course (Gnocchi with a tomato and salsiccia sauce). While the restaurant had a nice ambience, I was not sufficiently impressed with the food to consider rushing back to eat there again.

Salvi's is delicious, warm and cosy! The staff are lovely and the food is incredible! I would recommend the Burrata! One of my favourite places to eat in Manchester. It's intimate and vibrant. You will not be disappointed.

Didn't quite know what to expect as it was our first time in Manchester let alone our first meal at Salvi's. However no need to worry as from the moment we stepped inside to the time we left everything was amazing. The food itself transported me back to a time when I was very happy in my life. Thank you Salvi's for a most welcome experience, we will be back. Baci da Edward and Miriam O'SULLIVAN. We ate here on Friday 24th January 2020. Grazie Salvi's xx

A lovely restaurant, with lovely service and very pleasant ambience. A noticeably large contrast from the Corn Exchange branch, where I had terrible experience with the food and the staff as well as the manager. Only thing is, I was not told that the dessert was not part of the January 50% menu! We did not mind too much since the tiramisu was so delicious!

Food was amazing, even better that it was 40% off in January.
Service a bit slow, waited 25 mins for bill and often waiting a long time for any sort of service.

But they did bring a slice of cake out with a candle for the birthday girl which was a lovely touch.
