Can’t complain - food and drink delicious and the atmosphere was great, considering they’ve only been open 3 days because of lockdown since before Christmas the service was faultless.

A good first meal out after lockdown 3. Our food was cold by the end of the meal, although I tried to eat it as quickly as I could straight after it came out. The outdoor winds probably contributed to that. On the other hand, the service was excellent, the food and drinks came almost immediately. In addition, the ambience was lovely in our opinion; with spacious outdoor seating and friendly staff and other customers we would dine here again. Thank you!

Waited too long. Told 15 minutes, no further communication but sat down after 35 minutes. Service after that was very basic. Error made with the starters we ordered. Not a great visit

Visited on first day of reopening- Salvis have made sure tables are socially distanced and there is a cover over the outdoor area. Service was slow but understandable as they were very very busy, all staff were really friendly and welcoming and they sang me Happy Birthday which was lovely. Food was incredible! Would definitely recommend!

Not sure why the waiter thought that he needs to spell out the menu for me when I clearly said what I wanted. That was embarrassing.
Probably assumed that I am illeterate.

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.
