The location is great if you want to have a quite get-away from all the usual mall shoppers and searching for a parking space. Located in a residential area and private/public free parking one block away from Whittier Blvd. As you walk in the restaurant is a little dark inside, but the greeting is warm and the ambiance is purely...

This place has been around for years and it continues to be GREAT! Though I've only been here a few times over the years it never disappoints. The atmosphere is really nice, its very intimate, a little small but the place feels very Italian with posters, expressions, and pictures. On certain nights they have music. During the Christmas season, they... More

Great spot in montebello for Italian food. On some occasions up can get a live band going that plays "traditional " Italian folk songs. The service is good. Try the Ravioli!!

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.

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
