Service was perfect. $10 french fries were cold. Filet ordered medium rare was dry. Brasciole was cold inside and tasteless. Salads were good as were desserts. Ambience was perfect. I felt the meal was overpriced for the quality and quantity.

This was our first time eating dinner at Italian prime . We felt special from the moment we were led to our table. Our server was friendly, energetic and attentive to our needs. The service was exceptional. The food was paced out in a very timely manner. My husband ordered the stuffed lobster and he loved it. The horseradish crusted salmon was exceptional. I was impressed by the manager being attentive to the needs of the guests. He personally checked on all of the diners to see how their dining experience was going.

Today I visited Italian Prime (01/11/2022) I must say that overall my meal was delicious and my service was great. My server Giovanni was wonderful and very attentive to his tables. He is very knowledgeable in the menu whether it be drinks, entree, or desserts. The one thing that really didn’t affect my meal, was a chopped salad with blue cheese dressing, the dressing was kind of bland. Again it really didn’t affect my visit because I had other delicious food which made up for the bland dressing. I will definitely return and hope that the service is as good as it was with Giovanni tonight. Thank you Italian Prime.

My husband and I have eaten here many times and this was the first time we were disappointed. The waiter was nice but didn't take our order until we were there for an hour. It was my birthday as per the reservation and we mentioned it. We were supposed to have my dinner free but were charged. I ordered the filet medium rare and it was not evenly cooked.

Overall the service was a little slow. I’m sure because of Covid. But the food was excellent. The only complaint is that we were sitting by a stereo speaker which was too loud and we could hear the music from the Chandelier bar which was a little annoying

Salvatore's never dissappoints. Went the evening of January 1st; quiet for a Saturday but considering it was New Year's Day it was understandable. Service was amazing! Food always good at Salvatore's Out of town guests raved about the place!

Our waiter Jeff was knowledgeable of the drink and dinner menu. We ordered clams casino as an appetizer and 1/2 rack of lamb and filet as our entrees. Food and service never disappoint at Salvatore's Prime. One characteristic that we enjoy is the ambiance. The music and noise from the Chandelier bar does not filter into the restaurant part. We are able to have a romantic dinner, but still able to have some fun after dinner drinks at the bar without traveling somewhere else. We cannot wait to return.

The food was good, not great for the price. Because it was New Year’s Eve there was a special menu that was a bit pricey for the quality of food. It should have been excellent instead of good. There were 5 of us. My appetizer and soup were both lukewarm. Did not want to complain because I’m sure they were short staffed because of covid. Definitely not a good value.

The restaurant is very bright and very noisy. Our table was about three feet away from the next table , making conversation difficult.
We ordered the stuffed mushrooms appetizer, which was so spicy all the other flavors were masked.
Our reservation was for 6:45 and we finally received our entrees at 8:30. The service was fine and the waiter was very apologetic, even bringing us a complimentary cocktail, however that is a very long wait for dinner. We were looking forward to a nice quiet dinner in a restaurant known for fine dining and we were sadly disappointed.

The service was excellent, our dinners were delicious and the wine was perfect. We were there for our adult daughter’s birthday. Turns out that a birthday gets you a $49 discount! It was “Wine down Wednesday,” with half price bottles of wine! My wife and I had the fixed price meal at $49 each. There are plenty of choices for an entree, included a salad, bread, and dessert desert. My daughter did not order dessert, but they brought chocolate covered strawberries with a sparkler to celebrate her day. It was great.

The Lobster Bisque is exceptional. Prime Rib was very fatty and chewy - disappointing. Filet was cooked perfectly. Bolognese was creamy and flavorful, however was salty. Pasta was way overcooked. Service was good, but not great.

We took my elderly in laws both of whom are in wheelchairs to celebrate my mother in laws birthday. Normally my father in law can’t hear in restaurants but the noise level was so low this was not an issue. The table was easily accessible for both of them as well. We had a very enjoyable meal and Jeremy our waiter was an absolute pleasure to have! He was incredibly kind and thoughtful to our in laws and my daughter. The smoked maple old fashioned is a drink everyone should experience! Overall an incredibly great experience in a lovely location. Adore the Christmas decorations throughout! Thanks and we look forward to our next visit.

Came for our annual Xmas get away and we’re having an amazing time until the main course came out. The halibut I was served first was very over cooked and extremely dry. The waiter politely took it back to the kitchen to have it remade, and at this point we had already waited 1.5 hours for our dinner to come so we were starving. When my replacement halibut was delivered it was raw and cold in the middle. Ruined the entire evening after such a great time… hard to say if we will be returning again as I have been disappointed too many times.
