Attracted by the great sounding seafood menu, but a bit put off, as there were no diners inside. Recent Trip Advisor reviews were very good, and they mentioned new management, so decided to take a risk, and booked a table for the following evening. On arrival the restaurant was again empty, but after that things could not have gone better.... More

We jumped in this small restaurant by accident before a business meeting nearby. A pretty family run restaurant where you can enjoy an authentic and genuine seafood. We ordered a selection of starters suggested by the owner and a Paccheri pasta dressed with fresh tuna... just divine.

Walking past St. George's Square and turning left on to Archbishop Street, you come across Salvino's - a small lovely restaurant whose proprietor hails from the magnificent city of Rome. The restaurant (including the rest room) is extremely clean. The staff is friendly and efficient. The food is delicious - we had a selection of antipasti and risotto seafood -... More

Came across this little place during the Christmas break and decided to give it a try and I must say that it was well worth it. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. We had pork fillet, pasta and chicken which the kids really enjoyed. The coffees were good too. Keep up the hard work!

Fabulous and interesting food with very friendly service. Just right. We were lucky to get a late booking on a busy night. Being NYE it was a limited menu but everything was delicious - we tried it all between us - and great value too.
