A lovely restaurant, gorgeous food, good atmosphere - what more could you ask for! Service is friendly and prompt (but not rushed). Portions are big - come hungry! - but you'll definitely find room for another course. The starters aren't to my taste but you can't go wrong with garlic bread. I've had the calzone, pasta and lasagne when I've... More

What a huge disappointment! Having seen Salvos on the TV (albeit a long time ago) and the restaurant being a bit of an institution in Headinley, my friend took me here for a birthday. What a let down. Drinks: we started with Aperol Spritz which were predominantly soda water (hardly any ice and the ratios were all wrong) so.. we... More

Genuine Italian food freshly cooked. All the pastas seem good and they have some really good starters.

Visited twice now as part of a group. There is very limited vegetarian option and I found the food to be quite stodgy on both occasions (far too much cheese on the Melanzane alla Parmigiana too. I know the dish contains cheese but I felt I just had a great lump of melted cheese with a bit of hidden aubergine... More

We were looking for "Either a steak, or pizza..." I said I can do both, lets go to Salvo's... I decided to go 'surf n turf' with king prawns to start and 28day aged steak for main. Both were excellant, as was the Italian craft beer and house wine by the glass. A perfect choice for perfect food with a... More
