Can't say anything bad about this place. Food was excellent, many familiar dishes but often with a distinctive twist. Service was very professional but not stuffy or stiff. This was an anniversary dinner, though we didn't mention anything until asked. That led to a gift of two loaves of the cheesy garlic bread to take home. Totally unnecessary, but very... More

Very good service. Clean, nice atmosphere but with respect to Italian fare it is average. Nothing out of the ordinary. I have eaten Italian food in NJ, NYC and Italy.

A downtown restaurant convenient to the Hartford Stage [our destination that evening]. Great pastas. In fact, everything we've had there - and we've been many times - has been consistently good. Friendly, welcoming service, too.

Have not been here in a while and it was just as good as I remember!! Started with the cheesy garlic bread which is INCREDIBLE!! Enjoyed the sweet potato ravioli in sage cream sauce as an appetizer. Then I had the meatball salad that was really yummy. Great meatballs! My sister had a tortellini dish with sausage, spinach and a... More

Salute is awesome. Top of the list of Hartford choices for lunch and dinner. I am a frequent flyer here for business, family and friends. The food is awesome, classic Italian with their famous cheesy garlic bread that is to die for. The staff is unbeatable and Jimmy (and Dale, Andy and crew) always make you feel social. Customer service... More

Easily the best dining experience I have ever. Service is unmatched and the food is excellent. The owner and server treated me and my date like their own family. The mussels in wine sauce are to die for. And as everyone else has surely already said... you must try the garlic bread.

For consistently good food and friendly service, we regularly turn to Salute. If you have a preference for whether you sit in the front near a window or in the back, let them know when you book the reservation. For lunch or dinner, we always make a reservation - They are often booked.

Every time I go they have the greatest garlic bread I have ever had in my life. The rest of food is really good and they almost always give superb customer service. I highly, highly recommend Salute if you are in Downtown Hartford.

Took time to travel to this downtown restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews. The food was perfect. (Bolognese, chicken parm) There were two holiday parties going on so the noise level was (understandably) high. Once these groups left, things returned to what seemed normal. Would go again. Parking garage up the street 1/2 block. Bring your ticket for half price with... More
