Love this place!! Every time we go we eat something different and we have loved everything we have ordered. It's our favorite place for date night and all of the servers are so friendly.

previously I have loved the food, service and vibe of the place but this time the food was below par,there was little vibe and the whole visit seemed rushed. I would normally be very happy after a visit to salvis but after this visit not so much

By far the best Italian meal I've had.
Friendly staff and brilliant service.
The only downside was a long wait for our orders to be taken, which is to be expected with the limited staff at the moment.

Had a great evening. There was a reduced menu but the choice was still good. Shared a platter of breads, cheeses and Italian hams. Very large portion. Mains were 3 seafood pastas/risotto. One order of pasta with Italian sausage. Four empty plates. All delicious. Had red and white house wine. Very reasonable price and good taste. The staff were attentive and looked after us really well. Will definitely return.

The food was good, but I had an early reservation and they were out of many menu items. Also for the price you're paying they should have tablecloths and linen napkins. It felt sort of sterile. They also kept me waiting outside for quite sometime while people at the shop received service (restaurant in the back and down the stairs). My broccoli was way overcooked, but my ziti was delicious. The cannoli was excellent (from the shop). Nice wine selection. I was underwhelmed. I believe they may have just re-opened on the 4th, therefore, it may explain the limited menu -- not sure.

Came here on the first night the restaurants opened after lockdown. They were really professional and stuck to the social distancing measures but still made sure there was a friendly atmosphere. Food was incredible, would definitely return!

I went there the first day back of the reopening (due to covid-19) without knowing what to expect. Everything was ready for it and of course with all the new rules applied. The staff was very nice and made me and my friends feel very comfortable. Food very good too and great atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant.

What a lovely place.... great food and the service was super. Our party of seven all liked their food choices. It has a nice atmosphere and is a refreshing change from a lot of the 'Italian' restaurant chains. Would highly recommend for family or friends lunch.

I go often to 3 Salvi's and they are great but probably the music should be lower here, it was so loud making people yell and it was difficult to maintain a conversation.

Good authentic Italian cuisine. This venue at the corn exchange is quite small but cosy and on the lower floor. There’s a shop at entry level.

We were warmly welcomed as soon as we got down to the restaurant, and the ambience of the restaurant was perfect - like stepping into Italy!
The lunch deal was a nice surprise (we weren’t aware of this when booking), especially the Prosecco for an extra £2. The mozzarella board was delicious, and the pizzas were extraordinary. Lovely coffee too to finish as well.
We will certainly be recommending this great restaurant to others...the best pizza outside of Naples!

I reserved a table for my daughter and I to have a meal before attending a concert at Manchester Arena. This was our first visit to Salvi’s and we were very impressed from the moment we walked in. We received a very warm welcome from the staff and were immediately shown to our table. We couldn’t fault the service, quality of food or the ambiance in the restaurant. The waiting staff were extremely attentive and obliging and the restaurant has the feeling of an authentic family run Italian restaurant. It will definitely be our first choice from now on whenever we go to future events in the area.
