Always a fan of Salvis, I have been eating at the previous resteraunt for years. The food is excellent, simple with great authentic Italian ingredients that they import into the UK to sell in the deli.

The team are great, very authentic and the manager is excellent.

Its a small menu but the quality is outstanding.

The restaurant was cosy and relaxed, the service was exemplary, and the food excellent. We were a party of 7 and we felt comfortable and well-looked after. The service was attentive, but not intrusive. The sharing platters that we had as a starter were very good, but we were probably a little greedy and were unable to finish our delicious pasta course. The pasta was cooked just right and the sauces were rich and savoury without being too salty. Our left-overs were far too good to waste, and the staff kindly and efficiently took each unfinished plate and returned with lovely recyclable takeaway pots. No fuss.
We had a very nice bottle of Prosecco to toast our occasion and a really good bottle of Primitivo. I cannot comment on the desserts as we were too full, but the espresso Martinis were very good, not over-sweet.
(We reheated the pasta for lunch the next day and it was still very good.)

Lovely food. Quite simple food but very tasty. Felt authentic Italian. Portion sizes just right and managed a pudding which was exquisite. Very good service. Nice environment. Enjoyed very much and can't fault it.

A quaint little restaurant which made the atmosphere rather cosy. Unfortunately, some of my pizza was a little burnt and I had to eat around it. I probably should have asked for another one but I just didn't get a chance to, although service was good. However, I would probably come here again to try their pastas. My friend ordered a clam one which looked fantastic and they cleared their entire plate.

The food and service was fabulous and our waitress was very attentive. I would highly recommend the lobster ravioli!
The only complaint we have is that the chairs we were sat at were not at all comfortable especially for my bad back. There were other chairs in the restaurant but not available at the time of our booking.

Visited mid afternoon on the Monday afternoon new year, so a little on the quiet side with not too many customers.
The service was excellent and very attentive.
The team even took the time out to sing happy birthday to my twenty something daughter.
The food was excellent, apart maybe from the ribeye steak which I would say was overpriced at £24.00.
Overall a very enjoyable experience.
Would we come back? Most definitely.
Thank you Salvi’s

Absolutely incredible! The lobster tagliatelle was to die for and the best dish I’ve had in my life. Wow - will 100% be coming back and hope this dish stays on the menu. The staff were warm and welcoming even giving us complimentary shots. Thanks so much for stunning food and a lovely evening. Also the house white wine is perfect!!

Toilets needed a revamp. Toilet seats broken and taps twisting round which seemed to make the place seem old and need some TLC.
