I really like the slightly rustic old school interior with the Van Gogh style chairs. When you visit new restaurants as I do, they all start to look the same. This was like somewhere you'd go to on holidays down that little side street you found by accident. They have a prime location too, just off Deansgate opposite Bill's, (not yet opened) and Byron.
|Very decent coffee.|
However if you remove the price element, I did enjoy it and it makes for a refreshing antidote to those bland uniform Italian chains and it would still most likely be my Italian of choice in the city centre because it's an independent.
* Please note that since writing this review, Salvi's have indeed started a £15 set lunch menu. (2 courses and a glass of wine), which is great news and great value.
