Highly recommended - the most authentic Italian restaurant in Manchester sourced by ingredients and fresh foods from Naples. Always a fantastic meal with brilliant customer service

Great Italian food. Famed for mozzarella, as the name implies. Great pasta and pizza. I always enjoy the food here. Mozzarella sharing platter is lovely.

Salvis is always a treat but this was extra special. I took two friends who had never been and they loved it. The special ragu was outstanding, rich and comforting. We had three, very relaxed courses each of which was excellent and so very different from your usual 'Italian' restaurants - because Salvis really is Italian. We were particularly happy with the service - our server very quickly realised we wanted a relaxed meal so courses came when we were ready - which meant we spent a good three hours on our lunch - perfect. Being able to thank the Chef at the end was something we valued because the food had been so good. And our bill came to a very respectable £50 each - which included the equivalent of three bottles of decent wine. If you've never been to Salvis - you really should go. Whether you want a quick snack or a full blown meal the quality will not disappoint you.

We visited the restaurant as part of a birthday celebration and pre concert meal and we're not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, especially Klaudia who greeted us in the Deli and spoke about all the authentic Italian ingredients and the menu.
The food and the service was excellent, with the waiter, who's name I can't recall regularly checking to see if everything was ok.
Overall our first visit to Salvi's was very memorable and we will certainly look to return very soon.

Wonderful family-owned Italian restaurant. Fantastic traditional Italian food, great service, friendly staff, accommodating to changing food orders to meet your wants/needs.
Has a great deli upstairs that sells a lot of the stuff they serve, and more.
A hidden authentic gem that makes you believe you're in Italy.
10/10

Not been here before, but will definitely come again. A group of 4 of us were looking for somewhere to eat near Stoller Hall that wasn't a big chain, and this appeared to have good reviews, so we decided to give it a try. Definitely a great decision, as we had a fantastic meal. The restaurant is downstairs below the delicatessen (quite hard to find really), and is a little gem. Authentic Italian food, friendly waiting staff and a nice ambience. Not quiet, but not too noisy either. Highly recommended.

Came for lunch with friends as we had a lovely meal in December. We were quite disappointed with the food this time, my seafood pasta was so salty I couldn’t finish it, and the sausage pasta was too spicy for my friend.

We have eaten at Salvi many times before. However this latest experience was disappointing . The pasta was very dry and the risotto very salty. The excellent service was the only thing we recognised from our previous visits.

The carbonara pasta was too dried, even the microwave food taste better than what I have ordered. And the pizza was too salty. The pizza crust was too thin and burned.

Disappointing meal on a Friday night. Surprising as it was busy.

Starter of mixed bread, olive oil and balsamic was terrible ..bread was stale and all the same. The dipping bowl was too deep to get to vinegar

Both of us had risotto very mediocre and for mixed sea food would have liked more than one prawn!

Used the restaurant as it was close to The Manchester Arena to have a light pre concert bite to eat. We chose ‘tapas’ smaller plates to share and enjoyed it. The wine was quality too. It’s homely and atmospheric and live the fact that it is a delicatessen upstairs
Enjoyed it and would go back

Great food as usual! The staff were pleasant and helpful. My only complaint was that myself and my partner ordered the trio of mozzarella to start and unfortunately the staff forgot we had ordered it and so took almost 30 minutes to have our starter delivered to the table. A couple had sat down and ordered the same thing quite some time after we ordered and they received their mozzarella starter before us! :(

Had a lovely early Valentine’s Day dinner with my girlfriend. The 3 balls of mozzarella were amazing and a great starter between us. Followed by some lovely pasta dishes, really tasty and fresh accompanied with a nice bottle of red.
