Bar service extremely slow. We waited over a half an hour before drink order came.
Excellent in every regard.
The osobuco was very very good.
El Manager del restaurante fue muy grosero , despota y prepotente . Quisiera ser muy clara porque no quiero afectar a un restaurante con tab extraordinaria cocina por solo una persona. Reserve para censr el 31 dic 2019 llegamos puntual 8:30 pm , el restaurante tenia un hermoso ambiente en el salon principsl y hania 3 mesas desocupadas para 4 personas , yo solicite en mi reservacion una mesa en el salon principal, el manger nos llevo a nuestra mesa en otra area al lado de la salida de emergencia, le solicite el cambio de mesa a lo que me contesto gritando !!!!! Que esa era nuestra mesa y que era lo unico que nos podia dar y que si no nos gustaba nos fueramos, era fin de año se pueden imaginat la impotencia y frustacion.
Espero este comentatio llegue a las manos correctas , esta persona nos arruino la noche.
We go often but NYE the service was extremely slow. Took almost an hour to get our cocktails. The red balloons were odd for NYE. We'll come back, but the waiter staff needed a little help.
Food, service and wine pairing recommendations were excellent! Nice ambiance. I’d go back for sure!
Really great food and a very romantic ambiance with lovely live soft music
Best kept secret in san diego!
We celebrated my wife’s birthday and for our first time we were stunned. Stunned by the warm greeting, the ambiance, the service and mostly by the food. We did not want to leave after dinner! I would love to give the ten stars.
Wonderful food—terrible service. It’s as if we weren’t even there
Until they get the rabbit back, these are staple delicious choices :D Exceptional service with wonderful delicious food! :D
Beautiful location! Loved the food. Ambience was just perfect. Will surely come back.
It's the service that is truly outstanding. A professional waitstaff that knows each dish on the menu, can discuss ingredients and flavor and in so doing help in the choices made. They watch their tables and check without ever becoming intrusive. Just a warm smile and gracious hospitality.
The food is prepared from 'scratch' and in the world of early prep, heating lamps and reheated dishes, Salvatore's brings fresh, home made dishes to the table. Outstanding.
It is my 'go to restaurant and though I live in the building next to their front door, I would go the distance for dinner at this wonderful Italian restaurant.
Amazing food. Highly recommend the lasagna and ravioli. Harpist was playing on Saturday and completely matched the mood of the restaurant. Highly recommended!
One of the best traditional Italian in the city, highly recommended.
Wonderful ambience and quiet for conversation
Experience for the most part was lovely but our server was given many tables on the other end of the restaurant which left us a bit abandoned. We had to go to the bar to get our check after being left along for about 30 minutes. Our server was lovely but management probably could have made a better call on what tables to make our server work.
Delicious! Veal scallopini and they substituted angel hair pasta for vegetables. Just delicious. Staff was very helpful and friendly. My partners veal was outstanding as well. Highly recommend.
Service was very welcoming and attentive. Food (butternut squash raviolis and veal) was divine! Good recommendation from waiter on food and wine. An excellent evening.
Great place! Food and service were excellent. Highly recommend!!!
This is a fantastic place to eat. Not mentioned in many of the guides but everything about this place is first rate. I have been coming to San Diego for many years and eat here every time. Never had a bad experience. Goob food, great, service and great ambience. No TV and you can even hear yourself takl even when there is live music. This is a place not to be missed
Consistent extraordinary and flavorful culinary creations and impeccable service. You won’t be disappointed here. Parking is a breeze in the attached garage with free validation!
This place is a true gem!! The service was fantastic! Everyone was super friendly and attentive. The setting is absolutely beautiful, tastefully decorated. The piano player adds such a beautiful touch. It has a romantic and intimate vibe. Last but not least, the food was incredible!! From the bread to the desserts-amazing! Don’t miss this place in Little Italy, you’ll want to go back again and again.
Four very satisfied diners. All entrees and sides were outstanding. Shrimp entree and pastas truly great. Chef made excellent casio y pepe even though it is not on the menu. Waiter was first rate — everyone was happy with his recommendations. He was totally unobtrusive and yet his attentiveness was truly first class.
I’ve been looking for a lovely restaurant downtown for dinner before the opera and Salvatore’s was a nice choice. The dining room is pretty and serene. The night we were there a harpist was playing. Gracious service and delicious pasta in two sizes so we could choose to have it as our main course. A bonus was validated parking in a garage just behind the restaurant. I’ll go again.
Great service and live music!
Great service. Beautiful place.
All they have to offer is ambiance.
The food was terrible and bland.
Only good food we had was a slice of cake for dessert.
Great food and service. Looking forward to returning
Everything was great but the food is way too salty.
Romantic, Beautiful, Amazing food, Live music, an amazing date night restaurant!
Very nice and friendly
Service incredibly slow because of too many diners. Don't take other reservations if you have a huge party. Or don't take a huge party if you have several reservations on the books. Dinner took 3 hours. Unacceptable.
The Chicken Parm was fabulous and my wife got the mussels with linguine. We shared a great bottle of wine and our waiter was very helpful.
Very clean, nice and attentive service. I would definitely be coming back.
Nous avons pris un souper d’amoureux et de fût très bien et très bon
I love eating here. The food is top level, ambiance too... Live music is key to the enjoyment too... The only thing I could suggest is for the waiting staff to be more professional. Most of the time my dinner ticket after tip averages about $100 a plate. We are there to really spoil ourselves or impress visitors with the best Italian in San Diego..... SO.... I would like the waiting staff to be VERY respectful AND formal. I mean OVER THE TOP....Clean the crumbs and check EVERY detail. SERVE ME... lol. We have always come in early, so maybe that's it.....but I want the best service in San Diego too. We have been in a total of three times. Service this last time was more like "On the Boarder" than the GREAT ITALIAN Salvatore's. See?? Otherwise love the place, really top shelf. Oh... AND my mother is elderly and disabled.. The disabled parking is RIGHT out front. She loves that too. So its a natural place for us to go to treat her.
I added a special request and it was to print a picture of David Dobrik. When we came in, our host led us to our table with a picture of David Dobrik on one of the chairs! They are awesome! They were also very attentive and filled our waters constantly. The food was delicious, would definitely come back here again and recommend to our friends.
Perfect place to celebrate our 13th Anniversary! Romantic and delicious!! Definitely going back soon!!
