We received a very warm welcome in this smallish Italian restaurant. Our dishes of veal scaloppini and seafood risotto were freshly prepared in the open kitchen by the chef owner. Prices very reasonable. Restaurant very close to St Georges Square.

This is a real miracle in contemporary Maltese culinary scene. Among the places that have opened in Malta in the past years, Salvino's is definitely one of the best. I went there in different occasions, both for a work-dinner of 20 people and for a smaller friendly meal and the atmosphere has always been perfect. Try to very good fish,... More

A lovely small restaurant and being run by a well prepared Italian family.... food is typically Italian style and they have a very friendly and well English spoken waiters.... as to billing I have to admit that it is quite fare considering you're in the capital city...the portions and also a very comfortable service.... surely a worthy to taste

A large number of Italian restaurants have opened in Malta recently and unfortunately some are only Italian in name and not quality! Yet, Salvino's is in my opinion an exception. The menu us rather small yet I see this as a positive thing as it's manageable and the quality is always good. I have eaten here a number of times... More

I shouldn't have to say I made the wrong choices in a restaurant. I ordered Buffalo mozzarella salad to start and it was a bed of iceberg with 3 large balls of mozzarella and cherry tomatoes, enough for 3 and the cheese was not top quality. Seafood risotto for main was dry and more like rice than risotto but plenty... More

A very well managed Italian restaurant with good food and service. The prices reflect the quality but are affordable and less than similar restaurants in the area.
