Salvi's is one of the best places you can eat in Manchester. The food is fantastic, the portions are generous, the ambiance is lovely, and the waiting staff are always really friendly. I can't recommend it enough.

What a lovely place.... great food and the service was super. Our party of seven all liked their food choices. It has a nice atmosphere and is a refreshing change from a lot of the 'Italian' restaurant chains. Would highly recommend for family or friends lunch.

I go often to 3 Salvi's and they are great but probably the music should be lower here, it was so loud making people yell and it was difficult to maintain a conversation.

Good authentic Italian cuisine. This venue at the corn exchange is quite small but cosy and on the lower floor. There’s a shop at entry level.

Service was a bit slow but the food and wine was lovely. We were sat next to the fire door which was right under the air conditioning which was a bit chilly.

We were warmly welcomed as soon as we got down to the restaurant, and the ambience of the restaurant was perfect - like stepping into Italy!
The lunch deal was a nice surprise (we weren’t aware of this when booking), especially the Prosecco for an extra £2. The mozzarella board was delicious, and the pizzas were extraordinary. Lovely coffee too to finish as well.
We will certainly be recommending this great restaurant to others...the best pizza outside of Naples!

I reserved a table for my daughter and I to have a meal before attending a concert at Manchester Arena. This was our first visit to Salvi’s and we were very impressed from the moment we walked in. We received a very warm welcome from the staff and were immediately shown to our table. We couldn’t fault the service, quality of food or the ambiance in the restaurant. The waiting staff were extremely attentive and obliging and the restaurant has the feeling of an authentic family run Italian restaurant. It will definitely be our first choice from now on whenever we go to future events in the area.

Lovely tuna & mushroom pasta at Salvi’s Mozzerella Bar in the Corn Exchange tonight. My friend really enjoyed her pizza too. We actually booked originally for Salvi’s in John Dalton St, but cancelled the booking on Open Table & changed it to the Corn Exchange which was nearer as it was a cold, wet night.
However, I’ve just received an email saying we didn’t show up. This is not the case & I always notify the restaurant in advance if my plans change. I hasten to asd that it is not possible to make 2 bookings simultaneously for the same time slot on Open Table’s website. One booking has to be cancelled before the 2nd one is made & we most certainly did this.

We had a reservation as it was my partner's birthday. When we got there it looked as if they had forgotten about us and even though we booked a week in advance, the table we were given was next to the kitchen which is like open plan type. There were empty food containers and bags of flour just above our heads. Not exactly a romantic ambiance. The service was really good and the waitress was friendly and nice. The food was quite good as well, but maybe a bit overpriced. I probably wouldn't book this for a special occasion again as even if you book in advance you can still get the worst table in the restaurant.
