Now considered a Headingley institution, Salvo's first opened its doors in 1976 and has been packing in customers ever since for it's great buzzy atmosphere, friendly service and a wonderful selection of traditional and more contemporary Mediterranean cuisine.

Regularly featured in the Good Food Guide, Salvo's is a former Yorkshire Evening Post Family Restaurant of the Year and after 30 years continues to receive plaudits from numerous prestigious national publications. Salvo's has been voted one of the top Italian Restaurants in the UK by The Sunday Times, The Times, Olive Magazine and The Observer, and in October 2009 Salvo's won Best Local Italian Restaurant on Gordon Ramsay's programme 'The F Word'.

As Salvo's has recently celebrated its 38th Birthday it shows no signs of slowing down and remains the archetypal Italian Neighbourhood Restaurant.
