Salvatore's Cucina Italiana
Great Find!While in town for the Rock n Roll marathon, we did a quick internet search for an Italian restaurant in very close walking proximity to the Manchester Grand Hyatt (did not want to walk too far the night before a 26.2 mile run!). Salvatore's came up with wonderful Yelp reviews, so we immediately made a reservation.
We were blown away by the service and food! We can't wait to come back again!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTreated us rightWe went for our anniversary on a trip to San Diego and David the manager met us at the door and greeted us with two glasses of Champaign. The food was out of this world and the service was world class. We were spoiled there with service and a great meal. If you are thinking of going, do so, it is worth it. Thank you Salvatore's!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Loved This RestaurantI knew we were going to have a great experience when David, the manager, called and left a message detailing how to get to the restaurant. I called him back to confirm. What a great guy. The perfect person for the front of the house. We arrived. The place is beautiful. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine at a reasonable price. This place is old school great Italian food. Go! We met the chef, Raphaella. What a gem! She sat with us and we talked for 15 minutes. She cooks her family recipes. This food is cooked by real Italians!...this is the real authentic deal.
GO!...HURRY!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMnice restaurantThis was a nice place to eat. Since it was our first time there we got a complementary glass of white wine which was really good. The food was really good too. There was a lady playing the harp which made the whole experience wonderful, i love the harp. I would recommend.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and excellent serviceI had the best caesar salad I've had in a while, the pasta dishes we had were simple yet excellent, and the wine was great (the Federalist Dueling Pistols -- I highly recommend it!)5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMComlimentary Proseco.VeryComlimentary Proseco.Very enjoyable meal. Harpist was a nice added touch.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ExperienceThis is a gem. We were seated at a great table. The wine list was very good to excellent. The menu is exceptional and they were more than willing to go "off menu" to suit my particular tastes. The plates were hot, the portions excellent and the presentation was spot on.
The white Christmas lights that at first bugged me--i grew to like by the end of the meal.
The chef and manager both came over to greet--in a friendly, non-intrusive way.
This place is excellent.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMperfect romantic spotExcellent service, just let them know if you are celebrating anything when you make the reservation and they will accommodate you!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent find - A+Found this on Yelp. Convenient parking garage under the building - free with validation. Spectacular service, delicious food, small but great wine list. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant. We had a live jazz pianist providing a great atmosphere. It was very quiet when we started dinner, and got only a bit louder as more guests arrived.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic ItalianThe food in this restaurant is superb. In fact, it is the best Italian food I have had outside of Italy! Rafaella, the chef owner is simple and focused on flavor. The dining room is done in quiet cream colors and the service is excellent as well. Nothing like having a chef owner. I can't wait to return to San Diego and dine here again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing local Italian eateryAmazing local Italian eatery in downtown.
