I have been to this resturant a few time and it's really nice place in a good location. The pizza is great and cocktails are not half bad. They have seating outside and inside. I will definitely visit again.

Very nice friendly atmosphere, good food - Very tasty and filling. Overall a great place for lunch, dinner or just a few fantastic cocktails (Really tasty) Excellent decor and comfortable seating.

I found the restaurant to be well set up, good atmosphere. The steak was good. I enjoy a Portuguese streak. I was not impressed with the price, especially the drinks

We often go to Salvatore. They have amazing pastats and pizza. My favourite is the seafood pizza - best I have had in Gauteng. The atmosphere is nice in the evenings and they also serve nice cocktails.

The restaurant is set in the typical Italia style. Service is slow - took almost 20min to get our drinks, BUT, the food is amazing! Reasonable prices too.

For a first visit to this Italian/ Portuguese restaurant, we were underwhelmed. Maybe we didn't order the best dishes on offer? The service was friendly enough, although the waiter was not very knowledgeable about the menu and had to go and find out the answers to a couple of our questions. The beef Espetada was okay - served with butternut... More
