After having a fantastic experience at the restaurant before with a friend, I visited again but was very disappointed. Waiters were not particularly attentive. I ordered a drink which never came and had to ask for it again. Our table water was not refilled and we had to ask for it. We had spaghetti carbonara which came lukewarm and pasta with Italian sausage. Both dishes came on cold plates which made the food go cold within minutes.
Very disappointing especially that I was highly recommending the place after my first visit which was on a Friday night so very busy, comparing to my last visit where we were the only table to start with! Sadly not good enough :-( so unsure if I want to go back.

Had lunch with my family (we were total of 6 people) the food was outstanding. We waited a bit too long for our mains after they provided the starters but when it arrived it was worth the wait. Service is great and the staff are so friendly. My son has a nut allergy and the staff called us to let us know risks / contamination and they were professional - we ended up bringing his own meal from home. Overall I will def come here again.

This isn't our first time eating here which I'm glad about, the service was super slow! They ran out of lemonade & I requested a water which never turned up. That being said the food in this place is always amazing maybe they just need to employ a couple of extra staff to help out for busy periods.

Well the food was amazing felt like you was in Italy the restaurant felt like you was in a quaint alleyway in Naples in stead of feeling like you was just in another good chain restaurant. I’d highly recommend it for a nice night out with the wife.

I have found it difficult to find authentic italian cuisine - but Salvis is the closest to eating in Italy in Manchester. The food is fresh, the pizzas authentic, and the carbonara is made with Guancale and egg, not bacon and cream.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal here and will deffintely be visiting again soon!!!!

Breaks my heart to be so critical of Salvis, as it’s a place I’ve enjoyed over the years. I haven’t been for over a year, but decide to take my sister to celebrate her 40th birthday. Basically, after singing it’s praises, I was left feeling embarrassed and ripped off!
Food was substandard in quality of offering - it would have been nice to have a decent amount of prawn in the prawn pasta for example. The waiters, though nice enough, we’re ridiculously forgetful (or didn’t understand) and messed up our order from start to finish and after waiting 15 minutes for a dessert that didn’t materialise, I paid the extortionate bill and left.
Won’t be returning

For me Salvi’s is the best restaurant, Italian or otherwise, in Manchester. The food is impeccable and authentic, they haven’t made the place enormous and impersonal, it has a great feel about it and service is always great. Couldn’t recommend enough. Not out first time there and it certainly wont be our last.
