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!

Great atmosphere, laid back but good! Food really good. Beef ragu, steak, pizza, risotto just like Italy. Arancini starters fabulous. Reasonable prices too. Recommend!

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.

Lovely people, lovely food.

I had been wanting to visit here for a while, I'm not a fan of typical chain restaurants that mimic authenticity but here is perfect, there isn't that feel of a place trying to cater for everyone. It simply does what it knows best in Italian food and does it superbly. Thank you

Ordered the ravioli of the day. I was told it was beef. What I didn’t expect to receive was plain, gritty mince meat inside a ravioli covered in tomato sauce with no flavour. Tasteless. Restaurant was so quiet at lunchtime mid week - maybe because the food is so awful!

Early New Year meal out! Small venue but this added to the atmosphere. Staff were excellent as was the food! Wine was a little pricey but could have chosen less expensive wines but never sure of the quality/taste of cheaper wines! Overall great dining experience & would go again!

I wish I was informed in advance that only Christmas menu will be offered and for the cost of £60 per person it was really expensive and there should be a pricing without Prosecco since me & my partner do not drink and most restaurant would offer different pricing as such

I was also hoping for the classic safe option for main course and there was only pork & no beef or chicken. Menu should provide brief description of the item for us to know what the dish might turn out

Salvi’s Cucina was a fabulous restaurant. Such a cosy atmosphere and the food was amazing. The most authentic Italian food I’ve had! It was my birthday and they made it really special with a birthday banner, shot and a dessert. Would highly recommend.

I went along with a group of work colleagues, all were really impressed with the quality of the food and wondered why they hadn't been before, all will be returning. I love Salvi's because it is small, informal and the service is excellent.
