We booked as a table of 6, all of us ordered starters but not all came together and some mains even started to come out before all starters were served. They had run out of a lot of things on the menu that we wanted to order and the waiters had no idea what food was going to what table. A few of us sent food back because a pizza that was ordered was really wet and a main was a minimal portion. I understand that this could have been the desired portion but for the price and compared to everyone else's food it seemed like 1/4 of the portion. Wouldn't book again, was a total headache and was a sad start to lockdown being lifted.

We had a lovely lunch at Salvi's. Great food and service - it was a pleasure to eat there in such lovely surroundings watching life go by. Just wish we could have kept the table longer.

It was a horrible experience the staff was rude we got forgotten about. Then made to feel like we was a problem. Chips came after main. Main was freezin. It really was awful. People around us was changing the seats while we was still waiting for mains. They clearer need more and friendlier staff cause was man was awful to me. Very rude man. Clearly hates his job. Do not bother booking. This was such a let down and a recommendation from someone who spoke very highly of this place and food

Nice food and drink, nice location, we wasnt really that hungry, but we ordered pizza and beers which was nice, then ordered another beer, and decided to take pizza home for kids, then a rude waiter was amazed and surprised we wanted to take it home, almost wouldn't allow us too. Nice food nice location, not so friendly staff.

Starters and mains were brought over at the same time.
Didn’t realise until after paying they had added around £20 on top which I can only assume “service charge” our meal came to £60.
Wasn’t an awful experience but service was poor so service charge is a joke

Three very good courses for two including an excellent seafood risotto and a very decent bottle of sparkling wine all with change from £75. Pretty good for a city centre restaurant, I think. Thoroughly enjoyable experience: especially post lockdown!

Can’t complain - food and drink delicious and the atmosphere was great, considering they’ve only been open 3 days because of lockdown since before Christmas the service was faultless.

A good first meal out after lockdown 3. Our food was cold by the end of the meal, although I tried to eat it as quickly as I could straight after it came out. The outdoor winds probably contributed to that. On the other hand, the service was excellent, the food and drinks came almost immediately. In addition, the ambience was lovely in our opinion; with spacious outdoor seating and friendly staff and other customers we would dine here again. Thank you!

Waited too long. Told 15 minutes, no further communication but sat down after 35 minutes. Service after that was very basic. Error made with the starters we ordered. Not a great visit

Visited on first day of reopening- Salvis have made sure tables are socially distanced and there is a cover over the outdoor area. Service was slow but understandable as they were very very busy, all staff were really friendly and welcoming and they sang me Happy Birthday which was lovely. Food was incredible! Would definitely recommend!

Not sure why the waiter thought that he needs to spell out the menu for me when I clearly said what I wanted. That was embarrassing.
Probably assumed that I am illeterate.

We had our booking at 8 and we had to wait 20 minutes to be sited. The guy upstairs offered and prepared a drink for a couple that walked in after us but didn’t offer anything to us at any point. He didn’t give any explanation about why the table was taking so long - He just kept saying ‘2 minutes’. When we finally sat we waited other 20 minutes to order. When the food arrived, the bruschetta had clearly been microwaved. The pasta was nice. We didn’t have time to order dessert because after all the wait it was nearly 10 when we finished our mains.
I appreciate this was the evening before lockdown and they probably had a crazy day but you shouldn’t try to chew more than you can swallow if you want your clients to be happy and come back.

Probably one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever eaten (Pasta Nonna). My boyfriend and I had 3 starters between us, two mains, two desserts and two bottles of wine and it wasn’t even £100. FANTASTIC value for quality food. Plus, the service was fantastic.
