Giovanni is an extraordinary professional and very service oriented. He made the event special. The food was superior as always. And it was Salvatore’s. What else needs to be said?

A fine dining experience. Extensive wine menu. The prime rib was outstanding as was the filet. The service was attentive but not overbearing. Ken our server made the evening memorable with his suggestions and fine sense of humour. We had a very pleasant evening and will definitely return when in the area.

We had an awesome time. We had drinks, appetizers, and dessert. The food was excellent. The only appetizer that we were not to crazy about was the Salvatore's roll. It had a very strong taste to it. Overall the rest of the appetizers and canoli were wonderful. The service was excellent.

My husband and I went for dinner at Salvatore’s to celebrate our upcoming birthdays and had a wonderful meal. The gnocchi was the best I’ve ever had and my husband’s prime rib was excellent. They had a great selection on their wine menu. The service was excellent. The only negative was that our table wasn’t ready for our reserved time so we had to wait a while in the lobby until it was ready. Other than that everything was excellent.

Celebrated our 49th anniversary and my birthday. Joe, our server, was fantastic...very attentive and helpful and his recommendation of the stuffed veal chop was verified once I took the first bite -- it was superb. Excellent service, quality service, lovely ambiance and delicious food (and an extensive wine list) made this a special evening.

The Osso Buco was fantastic as was the pasta. Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the food and the wine! We weren't rushed at all. We will return.

Food was excellent. The server we had could have done a much better job. When asked for suggestions, she would reply that everything was good. I noticed other servers offered their favorite selection then commented on other foods that were most popular. What really was bothersome is we were celebrating our anniversary. So were the people at the next table. Their server brought them out some chocolate covered strawberries in honor of their anniversary along with their desserts. Not sure why we weren't offered the same. I would think a restaurant would want consistency amongst their servers. Our server did not go out of her way for us at all.

My first visit here was in 2003, and the restaurant has changed, but the food is still great and our server (Giovanni?) was outstanding. He said he'd been there 19 years, and convinced me to try the tapenade, which I was surprised I enjoyed. If I return to Buffalo, I'll be sure to return.

My wife and I have been going to Salvatore's for the last 5 years. They never disappoint! The food was delicious as always. The service prompt and the food was prepared exactly as ordered. We dined in the starlight room yet again, it is always a pleasant sitting area. This was our 28th wedding anniversary and we hope to keep coming until our 50th. It is always worth the drive from Cambridge Ontario ... 2 hours.

Everything was fantastic. Service, drinks, food were all very good. The only negative I have to say is the creme brûlée dessert wasn't good- it was over cooked. We only took a bite and the server didn't ask if anything was wrong. But other than that- the night was perfect!!

Quality significantly less than the last time we were there. Service was slow and people were seated on top of others eventhough the restaurant was over 1/2 empty. Service was sloppier than it was previously. Food was decent, but not stellar. I would rather go to Russell's.

This was our second time coming and we really enjoyed yourself again. I really love the shrimp. This first time we came I was pregnant and couldn't eat all my food or enjoy it but I had a handsome baby boy and we came for a date this time with the baby and we had a great night, even the baby slept and eat good 😊 thank you Salvatore!

Two minor grips, first is the small tables with two adults it's not enough room to be comfortable when eating you're meal. Second I ordered a ice tea, drank it in about 10 minutes, the waiter never offered or asked if I wanted another one.The food was great, yes we will eat there again.
