We love it at Salvi's and have visited many times over the years. The food and service are always excellent. I always recommend it to friends. Happy to support Salvi's, especially during these trying times.

Our visit was in honour of mine and my dad's shared birthday, and it was just lovely to have some quality family time in a warm and welcoming environment.

We'll be back!

There are so many restaurants to choose from in central Manchester that you could easily miss Salvi's. A simple interior with wooden chairs and tables, it disguises the fact that the food was outstanding and the service was excellent. There were five in our group and the sharing platter for two for starters was enormous and we all tucked in. It includes cheeses, meats, olives, bread and other little delicacies. I chose the pasta with Salvi's ragu for main course and I couldn't finish it. They did offer for me to take the rest away in a bag but I didn't think my hotel would approve, which is a real shame. Definitely worth a try.

The food was lovely, a short but comprehensive menu, everything beautifully cooked and presented, lavish portions (tip: if you order the Caprese salad, share it between two!). The nicest pizza I've had in years.

This restaursnt was a great find . There were clear social distancing practices in place, the staff were welcoming and attentive without being annoying. The menu had a wide choice of tempting dishes, what we ordered was home made and delicious. The portions were generous and not expensive .
The wine list had a good selection of reasonably priced wines .
Overall an excellent place to go for good food, good service and great ambience.
