I really enjoyed our visit to this family place. There were 10 of us so a lot for them to cover but everyone was very happy with both the food and service. It was a bit loud so not suitable for a romantic night out really. I very much recommend this place for good Italian good.

Lovely busy, warm restaurant with a big Italian Family History. Treated my granddaughter and her flat mate to dinner on a visit to their University. Food was absolutely delicious and the Fondant dessert was to die for. Some good black olives were the only taste that was missing. A must when you are next in Leeds!

More tables more profit maybe. The music was very loud, so loud I could not hear my wife speaking just over the table, I... More

Went to Salvo's on a Saturday night to celebrate my wife's birthday and had an amazing time. The place was very busy I wouldn't recommend just turning up although there were a few seats still available. The food was excellent and tasty and the service was friendly and relatively efficient, Just a couple of points which whilst they didn't spoil... More

This family run Italian is one of the best Italian restaurants I know. The staff are really welcoming & friendly - they obviously have a great reapportionment with each other which translates into a happy atmosphere in the restaurant. The food is home-cooked & you really taste the difference - delicious! I've reviewed Salvos before ... & probably will again!... More
