                                                                We have dined at Salentos for years and enjoy it very much. Unfortunately, this time they served our food cold with cold melted cheese and cold mushrooms on top of the two paninnis we ordered. I think instead of sending the food out hot, they waited for both to finish and didn't have a heating lamp so it all got cold. Not great.

Then while eating suddenly water came from the ceiling! They gave us a wine bucket to catch the water. The food is good but be ware of the happy hour specials....read the fine print!

I had the octopus and it was SOOO GOOD! The best I have had. The service was great too and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and wine. They have a great happy hour too. I will definitely be back!

                                                                We saw the reviews on Open Table and thought we'd give it a try. The meat/cheese appetizer was wonderful! The salami was the best I've ever had. The kale salad was a good sized portion that 3 of us shared. The filet medallions were good but the octopus was to die for! OMG! It was so tender and tasty. It had the texture of red king crab and I live in AK so I know what I'm talking about. I shared bites with everyone but wished I wouldn't have when it was all gone. Yum!
