Have been a customer over the years. Some menu items have been familiar favorites for years. Met friends for dinner. We all ordered pasta with different sauces and sausage. The sausage was WAY overcooked. Mentioning it to the waitress was worthless. She said " I'll mention it to the kitchen." Not the response we expected. Moderate prices, nice selections. Bring...

This filled the bill for a weeknight dinner out when our kitchen was out of commission. Pleasant evening out on their deck. Food is fairly standard Italian - American that is well prepared but not the sort of thing that foodies would rave about. Wine list is limited but fairly priced. No bar. Service was just right, attentive and courteous.... More

I am not sure why our experience was so much better, but my co-workers and I very much enjoyed this restaurant. I had the Fileto Diana, and it was wonderful. The meat was tender and savory, and the mashed potatoes were excellent. The tomato basil soup was also very good. My 3 co-workers enjoyed their dinners as well.

I read the other reviews too late. Obviously, the owner hasn't read them at all. I'm not a foodie or a big critic of anything but this place didn't make par. The place was very noisy. The tabletops were sticky. Booth paint was worn. But the worst thing I can say about a restaurant applies here; the food was bland.... More

I was expecting a nice Italian lunch on Sunday, but what I experienced was huge family dining with lots of screaming kids. I don't like unruly kids at restaurants and it was really hard to enjoy my meal and wine with kids screaming for an hour. I ordered pasta and spinach salad which were both good. The Italian steak my... More

Yesterday's chicken re-heated. Balsamic dressing with vinegar NO OIL on my daughter's salad. Stale croutons and bottled Caesar dressing in what is suppose to be authentic Italian food and the absolute WORST was DEEP FRIED Italian sausage that had the consistency of beef jerky!! My husband found it inedible. In fairness they took it off the bill :/ At first... More

I had a business meeting for lunch at this, my first visit, to Salvatore Scallopini. It was a pleasant and attractive place to meet. I had the salmon salad, it was delicious and fairly priced. The bread for the table was hearty and tasty, it made giving up gluten continue to seem like a bad idea. I also liked the... More

I have been wanting to dine at this restaurant for years because I've heard about it from several people. The location in Birmingham is small, but very quaint and cozy. The food was just OK, but probably could've been better if we had better service. I'm not sure if it's because we were there late on a Sunday... The server... More
