We were a party of eight and all our food was very tasty although we very nearly got another tables order, just a couple of little niggles when you are paying £7.50 for a cocktail you expect the glass to be over half full and our waiter was a bit quick taking another cocktail away when not quite finished he also did this with some garlic bread but overall a pleasant dining experience

The food was lovely but the service was very poor unfortunately. Myself and my partner were waiting a long time for the waiter to come over. We waited 20 minutes just to be given a desert menu. I could understand if It was a busy night but it wasn’t and there seemed to be a fair amount of staff on so I couldn’t understand why we had to wait around.

Nice setting, good value food and friendly staff. We went as a group (3 couples) for a catch-up. It was a nice ambiance. Lots of choice for wine, the Pinot Grigio was lovely. We’ll definitely go again.

Took my Mum for her birthday. We love Italian food and have eaten in many places around Rome & Sorrento & the fact that Salvis sources their food from all over Italy makes its authentic and makes you feel like you’re eating in Italy.
The tomato sauce is outstanding.

We booked to go before a concert at the MEN. All started well, shown to our table and drinks. Starters were very good. We had ordered Pizza for main, one was very 'wet' with a soggy base in the middle , we ordered a second set of drinks only one of two turned up, took 10 mins for the bill to arrive and a further 5 for the card machine (which is my pet hate). The table next to us sent their risotto back twice.
Food ok , price ok, service not great. Would I go back, probably not there are better places.

Good quality genuine Italian food and drink, Great atmosphere though a little too noisy with Christmas parties. I would certainly recommend this place as one of the better Manchester Italians. Molto Bene!

Myself and two work colleagues had early Dinner at Salvi's last Friday. There was a great atmosphere, not too noisy. As it was Christmas the Restaurant was very busy and we had a short wait for our table. Once seated we were offered drinks and the choices were excellent. The drinks arrived promptly and our food order was taken. I had a glass of Prosecco that was dry, just as I like it. We chose from the main Menu that had a great choice, especially of pizza and pasta. I had Bruschetta to start which was excellent followed by Pasta with Aubergine and Ricotta which was delicious. The service was very good, just attentive enough. This was my first visit to Salvi's and I will definitely return. I've already recommended this place to friends and family.

The ambiance and menu promised much, but unfortunately very little was delivered. My husband chose the spatchcock chicken. When it arrived, it looked as though the breasts had been removed, there was so little meat on it that it reminded us of the meals currently being served on I’m a Celebrity.

My ribeye steak was jelly-like in texture. By far the worst thing served was the wild broccoli. It was truly disgusting, smelling and tasting like cabbage left boiling for several hours.

The staff were pleasant and the wine was very nice, if a little on the pricy side.

We will not be returning.

Great food and experience. This restaurant feels real and authentic, right from walking in via the deli. Your house red is good and better than most other restaurants.

Look at what you have and the way you deliver it and don’t lose it.

The only minor improvement point I can raise relates to plate size. My wife and I both had the seafood risotto and my wife’s meal was noticeably smaller.

We will be back soon, once again with friends.

We were a table of four and on arrival things were good with drinks being served promptly along with our starters. We waited over an hour for our mains and had to chase the waiter to order further drinks which didn’t arrive!!! We cancelled that order and decided to order a bottle of wine as we thought that would be quicker. Such a shame as the staff are lovely and it’s a great place but badly managed.

I went to Salvi’s for pre theatre dinner with my 6 year old daughter before watching Matilda. It was very small and quiet when we first arrived but soon filled up and is clearly very popular. I soon realised why... the food was delicious! I had a spaghetti carbonara and bruschetta and my daughter had a pizza which was traditional Italian, thick dough which they cut into a cat shape, very cute. Really simple kids menu which was perfect. Ice creams were also gorgeous. Perfect place for a nice quiet meal in the city centre but still with a great atmosphere. Great selection of wines also. Would highly recommend and will be re visiting.
