The seared scallops were excellent. Chicken marsala was moist and the pasta Al dente. Pana cotta was lovely in texture, but the honey would be better as a drizzle, for my palate. Sadly there were two very noisy groups inside the night we were there, so we moved outside and it was fine. Overall a nice experience, with attentive service and good food.

We were hosting family from out of town in a group of six and excited to try this new restaurant in Bend. Food was ok but definitely not worth the price($50/person). Two of us had the scioppino and mine arrived with several unopened clams. Some of the other plates looked good. I had problems with the service and will not be going back! There are just better places to get Italian food.

Hello again. I see you are making round to all of the review sites. How lovely. Your friend gave the card to pay first. It is not our place to handle the dispute for you. You were rude to our staff about it. The total was $277 for 6 ppl which is about 46 per not 70. You are not welcome back.

Quiet Monday Night date night. My wife had the Chicken Parmesan and she asked to replace the red sauce with white, and waiter was eager to make the change. Everything we asked to customize they were incredibly happy to do (to make us happy!) I ordered the Scampi (shrimp). Both were great tasting, beyond our expectations. Highly recommend this place for the excellent service, and the great food. Good by-the-glass wine list.

We are big fans of the Brickhouse. When we found that the same owners also operate Salute we immediately made a reservation and were not disappointed. Now we have another place to go in Bend.

Having been to Italy many times we have experienced true authentic Italian food and this reminds me of that. The flavors are rich and portions are great not huge like some “Americanized Italian” places. It’s about flavor and taste and they hit the spot. We will be back on our next visit.

Food was not correct temp. Cold raviolis, cold steaks - sat too long. Asparagus crazy salty. Took over an hour to get our food. 3 tables that ordered after were served first. No acknowledgement of birthday. Decent carbonara. Server was really nice, though!

Amazing Peruvian dishes and cocktails. I assume authentic but have nothing to compare to. Wife had ceviche that was a 5/5. I had the seco de pollo stew that had just enough kick. Their chips and salsa (free) are very good as well, esp the green salsa.
I also had the pisca sour to drink. It came In a glass with a metal shaker about half full on the side. They Definitely did not skimp on that drink. The cinnamon on top of the foam was a great touch. If all their drinks are this generous, I would recommend them just on that alone.
Overall excellent meal. Surprised it wasn’t busier (location?).

Outstanding service and ambience. Our group of 4 each had different main courses all all enjoyed their. Food has improved since the first week or so after opening as the "back of the house" seems to have worked through the common early opening inconsistencies.

We were seated right away and our server, LiAnn, promptly asked if we wanted to start with a cocktail; which we did. She also made a few recommendations which were spot on. Lamb Osso Buco was wonderful, but the highlight was the cannoli - highly recommend. Can’t wait to return.

Service was wonderful. Food was excellent. Noise level was deafening. We (4 of us) had to yell to be heard. Had a 5:00 dinner reservation and was surprised how full the restaurant was. I would recommend this restaurant with reservation due to the noise level. Suggestion: Cork or noise absorbing material on the ceiling/walls to absorb noise. So wonderful to have a good Italian place downtown....I hope they will fix this noise problem.

It's great to have an Italian dining option downtown, but I would like to see more vegetarian dishes on the menu.
