Great team, great food really spoilt us. This was our 2nd visit after almost 2 years due to COVID restrictions etc. Even better now!
It is one of the best Italian restaurants in town hands down.
Really good food and generous portions. Very hot and stuffy downstairs though.
Wine choice initially seems good but the quality was average.
Overall a good authentic Italian restaurant. Needs a better wine list though and possibly (somehow) some ventilation.
The food was lovely, but unfortunately, the service really let it down for us. We were given disapproving looks by the waiting staff when we asked for a few more minutes to decide on our food order. The food was brought out in less than 10 minutes after ordering and the whole experience just felt very rushed - so much that we felt we had to eat really slowly to buy ourselves some more time! After we’d eaten, we ordered more drinks however the manager then informed us that he needed the table back in the next two minutes and so we were rushed into leaving, being told to just pay on the way out. Whilst I understand that many restaurants allocate a set amount of time for each table, we had been in the restaurant for less than 2 hours, and there was no mention on our booking or when we entered the restaurant that our table would be required back within a certain time (I expected that this might be the case although I would have expected to be given at least 2 hours for a table of 4). I think it would have been courteous to inform us at least 15 minutes ahead of needing the table back so that we had a bit of warning. All in all, due to the service we received, I wouldn’t plan on returning here.
Lovely food. Shared a mixed platter and pizza and both were delicious. Nice selection of wines too
Gorgeous food, great smiley staff and great company. Highly recommended. Will be back ♥️
Amazingly attentive staff, couldn’t do enough for you. Food was fantastic, much more genuine than other Italian restaurants we have been to. You could really taste the quality. Felt really special.
Booked our table a week ahead.
Party of 4 for afternoon drinks and canapés.
Walked through an amazing Italian deli to get to the restaurant. Greeting was lovely and felt very welcomed.
Ice water on the table and drinks ordered almost immediately. Time given to peruse the menu. Ordered mixed hors d'oeurvres with bread and extra olives. It was absolutely delicious.
All in all a great start to our day out in Manchester. Cannot wait to return. Ooh and bought some mixed cannoli on the way out, chocolate filled ones were amazing ❤️
The best Italian restaurant in the North West. From an Italian.
Service was slow. WiFi password not known by anyone. Limited menu and starters over priced.
Pizza was ok but again limited choice.
We had a fantastic time, we sat outside and the atmosphere was comparable to being in any Italian city, the food was amazing and the produce of high quality, at a very reasonable price.
The service was with a big smile and we where made to feel extremely welcome. Lovely place in the heart of Manchester.
Vongole pasta was amazing. Really authentic. Restaurant was busy and the service was good. I will be back.
Sat downstairs on a small table, dirty menu, average food at best. I expected more but looking around it just seemed the norm.
In my opinion there are better restaurants around. Service was good.
Ignored by multiple members of staff when we arrived. Only realised we had to go downstairs when another group arrived and walked straight in. When we got downstairs a waiter showed us to our seats and left us with no menus for 5 minutes. Once we had received menus we tried twice to get two different waiters attention to order drinks and was ignored on both occasion. Another waiter then started taking the order of the table next to us who arrived 10 minutes after us. We left before ordering and did not receive an apology from any of the waiting staff. The manager tried to speak to us on the way out to get us to stay, however, by then we had had enough. Will not be returning any time soon. Such a shame as the food looked unbelievable.
We've been to Salvi's a few times and its always been enjoyable. The food and wine were good, but the service left a little to be desired, with a alot of waiting between courses. It is a good job we weren't in a hurry as our meal lasted for over 2 hours and was only 2 courses plus coffee.
This is definitely our favourite restaurant now! Love coming back here again. Had a brilliant experience :)
Amazing food. Really nice service. Love the place
My girlfriend and I went to the Mozzarella Bar for some lunch, wow. Easily some of the best food I’ve had. The flavours are unbelievable. Presentation is outstanding as well. We’ll definitely be back!
I recommend a shot of Limoncello after your food, goes down a treat.
Food was lovely as always. Excellent service and quality xx
Lovely place, great food, good service.Definitely recommend
As enjoyable as ever. Dropped stars because portion sizes are v big, so it’s hard to have more than 1 course!!
Excellent food, unreal service and drinks true Italian - 10 out of 10 x
Traditional Italian food
Super yum carbonara
Food was amazing, I grew up in Italy and was so nice to revisit the coulture.They even have a shop where you can buy Italian products, amazing. Keep up the good work. Complimenti.
Had a lovely time. The food was incredible wine was gorgeous.
Was told there would be a hold on food but the service was fantastic and quick. Loved every minute of my time here
Food was amazing, place was lovely. However. When we got there we were waiting an hour and half for food. Understandable that it was busy but tables sat an hour before us recieved food first. Good if you don’t mind waiting for a bit.
Good food, excellent service. We enjoyed our lunch.
We had a lovely evening with friends. Food was delicious and the staff were very friendly
Excellent food, great staff and excellent quality price ratio
Very enjoyable. Lovely food in a nice place. Friendly staff and very good value for money
This is our favourite Italian in Manchester and we had a fab night once again - thank you SALVI’S
We were offered outside terrace but opted for inside to
Unpredictable weather. Lovely quirky restaurant, we went in basement to eat. Staff were lovely, all had seafood mains that were gorgeous.
Be back soon hopefully to sit on the lovely terrace.
Would definitely recommend to others we arrived early so was able to sit outside for a drink first the atmosphere was lovely then went inside the staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was lovely a nice cozy restaurant with a real Italian vibe we will most definitely be going again
Staff were very welcoming on arrival, seating area was lovely, I accidentally ordered red wine instead if white, my error due to not checking the menu correctly (Silly me) staff were very helpful and quickly rectified this, food was very tasty. Our only downfall was we’d asked for a dessert menu, after waiting 20 minutes we decided to leave it and asked for the bill. However that was only minor and we would definitely return!!
The outdoor gazebo was ideal, and kept us warm, dry and Covid safe. Service was excellent and the food was amazing with very generous portion sizes, excellent flavours and presentation. The experience was very authentic, just like a little piece of Italy - in the centre of a very wet Manchester!
Brilliant food. Helpful friendly staff who were very welcoming. Will definitely pay another visit
Service is amazing and food is delicious. I could go here every week:)
Great food, very quickly made and a decent choice of drinks. Slightly expensive but location may determine that.
Visited for lunch, very good food and excellent service
This is a fabulous place to eat, and lovely 😊 lovely staff.
The portions are great and food incredible
