We have been eating at Salvatore for many years, eating here at least once a month. There's only been a few times that the food was satisfactory (not great but okay) but service was excellent. Or, food was over the top, and service was slow. Last month both service and food were mediocre. My salad was watery (but crispy!), and... More

This is one of Montebello's hidden treasures. The food is great and at a fair price. Try my favorite sausage and peppers. Entertainment, drinks and good service.

Family-style traditional Italian restaurant. Good prices. Good service. Nothing super special or fancy. I'd be curious about the pizza, but I had Chicken Alfredo/Broccoli. It was ok. Chicken itself was breast meat with little flavor. Sauce was pretty good. I enjoyed the bruschetta side to put on top of the bread.

I've been going to Sal's since it opened. We were very happy that it has stayed in the family now for the second generation. Great home style Italian food. Cozy atmosphere, and everyone has always been friendly. Full bar.

This place has been making the best food for ages. The sauce is a perfect balance of everything you want in Italian gravy! The lasagna with two meatballs on top or try to stuff shells. Haven't had minestrone soup this good since Mama Leone

Salvatore's is a favorite with locals and family. Great service and huge menu with something for everyone - steak, seafood, pasta and pizza. Family owned and run with an attentive wait staff. Place gets crowded for weekend live music. Love the pizza and they are happy to make to order. Great for lunch and early dinners because you can carry... More

We have been coming here for 20 years. Great variety of home style Italian food. Best garlic pizza anywhere. The pastas come in a variety of shapes with a wide choice of sauces. They will adapt your food to your needs. Service is very attentive and helpful. The portions can't be beat.

Description
Family owned and operated since 1975 Benvenuti (Welcome)! The year was 1975 when proud owners of a little pizzeria & restaurant opened their doors to the public in the city of Montebello. Salvatore De Lorenzo and his wife Angela brought with them from Calabria, Italy, many family recipes passed from grandparents to parents with the taste and influence of good, honest Italian cooking made from the freshest ingredients along with a passion to cook. Growing up, there was always Nonna, Mamma, or Zia cooking in the kitchen filling the air with the aromas of fresh sauce and baked bread. The memories remain strong and alive today at Salvatore's Restaurant, one of the oldest family-owned Italian restaurants, where we continue the same family tradition in serving fresh quality Italian food to the next generation of customers. Come in and enjoy a sumptuous meal and southern Italian hospitality as you dine in the ambiance of that old world Italian charm while listening to live entertainment in the background. There is a saying in Italian, "chi mangia bene, vive bene." He who eats well, lives well. We believe this is the way dining should be experienced and we invite you to dine at Salvatore's. We look forward to seeing you again. Joseph and Anthony, brothers
