This is the first time I have been and it will not be the last. The food was delicious and tasty.
We were left just to talk and we were not hurried out like some restaurants do.
It has a lovely friendly atmosphere .

Probably the best most tasty Pizza we have eaten in this country. The first time my wife had ever eaten a full pizza including the crust!
It was a cold afternoon so no one was sat outside and we entered the deli part of the restaurant and we were directed downstairs where it was like a different World. Lively, atmospheric, busy. We were directed to our pre-booked table and it was definitely a case that if you hadn't booked you weren't going to eat today!
Mixed starters, a pizza, a Calzone Pizza, a bottle of very nice house Rose wine, a Pana cotta desert and two coffees. We were were checked on regularly by the staff but never felt rushed or under pressure even though customers were queuing continually up the stairs.
We haven't visited Manchester city centre for a very long time but we were very impressed and Salvi's will inspire us to visit agin!

Comfy, rustic feel with delicious food and fantastic service. Superb quality for the price. Treated my friend for her birthday and they gave her a little cake with a candle and everyone sang Happy Birthday. She loved it!

The food wasn’t as good as previous visits, which was disappointing as we were so looking forward to the occasion.
The menu indicated Fior Di latte mozzarella had been used within the ingredients in lots of their dishes, and we were surprised when we couldn’t buy it over the counter, as part of the visit was also so I could purchase Fior Di latte from their to make my own lasagna.

We had visited the other Salvis on John Dalton Street a few weeks ago and found the food here very different. Recommended the bruschetta to my children, which we'd had at the other restaurant, but it was completely different. My pasta had prawns in but some of the shell was actually hidden in the pasta so i actually had to spit it into my serviette.

Incredible rustic Italian food - full of flavour and beautifully presented. The shared meat and cheese board as a starter is a bit epic and spectacular and the buffalo mozzarella is the best I've tasted anywhere. Great ambience downstairs under the delicatessen and the service was attentive but not overpowering. Totally recommended.

Always love Salvis and the food was as excellent as ever. As one of our party put it, they just get it right. Only slight glitch was the service which was a little inconsistent - but we put this down to it being a lovely day and they were very, very busy.

We had a afternoon lunch at Salvi’s on our tenth anniversary. Neither of us are into grand occasions, but we were married in Italy and I wanted to keep that part.
Small and authentic is what I wanted, and got.
Amazing food, we ate, then bought the ingredients from upstairs.
Will definitely return regularly.

Visited for first time while staying in Manchester. Food was of a very good standard. Very welcoming. My daughter and husband have eaten here on several previous occasions and recommended it. Pasta was cooked to perfection . My dessert was huge and couldn’t quite eat it all. Loved the limoncello you are given at the end. Only negative thought the wine was a bit overpriced. Thank you Again. We will return.

The food is lovely, but not great for what is charged.
The service is very slow, we and several customers around us had to ask the same thing more than once, and had trouble getting some waiters' attention. Having said that, our online booking apparently hadn't come through and they still offered us a table so that was kind of them (but we booked through their own website and had 2 confirmation emails so how this happened is still strange...)
When trying to pay they put the wrong amount on the card machine, though to be fair this could have been an innocent miscommunication.

The food is what I went for and was not disappointed. The place is rustic and spacious and the food is of an exceptional standard not only for presentation but quality products cooked to perfection.
So if you want authentic no frill's Italian food Salvi's is the place to go.

Almost don't want to review as we might not get a seat next time!!! Oh my goodness the food is just DELICIOUS and the staff are just perfect to make your night pleasant - they really listen and advise you but I genuinely don't think there is an item on the menu that isn't delicious. We were a party of six and nothing was too much trouble for all members of staff - we ranged from 19yr old to 70 yr old and it was just the ticket for ALL of us - HIGHLY recommend!
