Food was outstanding! My husband got lamb osso bucco and loved it. I got scampi and although I wasn't really expecting so much citrus flavor, it was still good. The appetizers and desserts were perfection as well.

Food was good but not the best. Server was slow to bring cocktails when there were only t tables eating plus she spent a lot of time chatting with other staff.

This was an amazing little place to celebrate my 44th birthday last minute when we didn’t have reservations on a Friday night. Excellent service, a manager came to check on us. The ravioli was made from scratch and delicious and the chicken parm was huge and scrumptious! Would recommend this place for family or friends any night of the week!

This is an outstanding small Italian restaurant. The osso bucco is divine and everything on the menu is done to perfection.

Went there with my family for a birthday celebration. Everything was lovely. Wonderful service especially during a time when anxiety is still high about CV-19. My daughter who is gluten free was especially happy about being about to order GF pasta. Headed back with my husband for our Anniversary soon. Highly recommend!!

Unfortunately the service wasn’t the greatest. Ordered a bottle of wine for dinner but had to cancel it after dinner because we were finished with our meal already. The Cannelloni was disgusting. Very hard and the filing was gross. Dinner was good but unfortunately it didn’t come out at the same time. We also had to wait for our silverware so it was cold bye the time we ate.

Lovely meal outside! My husband's chicken marsala was outstanding. Loved my eggplant appetizer. The lamb ragu was a large leg, Sauce could have been sweeter and more savory.

This was our fifth visit since discovering Salute when restaurants were able to re-open. The house made ravioli is outstanding! Ravioli as a "litmus test" for us when it comes to Italian food. We have tried several other items - all very well prepared. We look forward to our next visit.

Absolutely amazing. My new favorite Italian restaurant in Bend. The scallop appetizer was so good our 12 year old is still talking about it. Even the bread they bring out when you sit down was delicious. This is traditional, well cooked, Italian food at its best. Our waiter was attentive, but not intrusive and the ambiance of the restaurant is quaint, but sophisticated. Can't recommend it enough.

Our first time to Salute was last week. We enjoyed it so much, we returned two days later! On our first visit we enjoyed the Shrimp Scampi, Chicken Parmesan and the Chicken Marsala. All were excellent. The caesar salad and bread were the perfect way to start the meal. For dessert, we shared the cannoli and another dessert. Both were very good. Its a great Italian spot in downtown Bend, just the type of place the town was missing. We will definitely be back soon!

This was our third visit in 3 weeks. The menu is varied and wonderful. The house-made ravioli is "delish" with choice of sauce - Bolognese or Spinach Alfredo - we have tried both. Most recently tried the Prawn and Scallop appetizers and Penne Primavera. We look forward to the next time.

The herbs and fresh ingredients made all the food so flavorful. I took my girlfriend for her birthday and it was delightful. We thoroughly enjoyed the appetizers, meal, and drinks. They also gave her a wonderful dessert! We had such a fabulous meal! Thank you for doing it RIGHT!

We tried Salute for my husband's birthday and the food was delicious. My husband had the Ravioli (his favorite food) and I had the Chicken Marsala which was off the hook. The prices reasonable and the service was great. We highly recommend it!

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!
