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.

This is a magnificent place to eat, passing through the lovely Deli to the downstairs restaurant. We were seated in a glass-doored table for 6, so we felt very special, the staff were very attentive and our waiter was superb(very funny and jovial)this made a birthday celebration extra special.
Thank you Salvis for a great evening.
Highly, Highly recommended.

Best Italian food in town! Great service, staff are attentive and relaxed. It doesn’t feel stressful or rushed off its feet even though it was a full house. The Ravioli starter with Black Truffle was exquisite and I had the Italian Fennel Sausage with Broccili which was divine. 100% recommend.

The food was superb. The atmosphere was great, we got lucky with lovely weather. We sat down outside, enjoying food and drink although the service was slow which can't be helped because they were very busy. Difficult to catch them when we needed to order.

Salvi's is one of our longtime favs but sadly this visit was a bit disappointing. Food was OK, it was quite quiet but waitstaff doesn't seem to be too on top of managing diners. We were shown to a dirty, unmade table, we had booked but they didn't ask about this, the minimal interaction we had with staff felt quite transactional, they gave us the bill and we had to ask twice for the card machine... hopefully just an off day as it had otherwise been a nice place to go.

No pizza available, but after we order our food we saw pizzas starting come out of the kitchen.. we asked why?!and we got the explanation. They got more pizza dough from other restaurant.. if that big piece of information came earlier, we could wait for our pizza. No tiramisu a few more dishes not available, at the end of all.. I believe that was better never have been there. Was my favourite restaurant before lockdown. At this moment it is a mirage that what was before l. Short menu, and short stock. From my regular order, in 4 dishes , only 1 was available. Was a busy day, I could choose a restaurant in the eat out scheme, but i preferred pay more , for my favourite food. Big mistake. Until the free dessert was not enough, because is not the dessert I wanted. Honestly it's the 1st I'm writing a comment about a restaurant.. I'm doing it because I fell very disappointed.

Always enjoy Salvi’s - great food, service and value for money. They have a good selection of beer on draught ( Peroni/Menabrea) and small but perfect menu - you’ll find something you want! Generous portions too!
Added bonus is the deli where you can buy pasta, wine , cakes - served on menu.
Friendly service and covid friendly.
Highly recommended!
