This restaurant was a great find. The pastas and pizzas are delicious and the tiramisu was heavenly. We enjoyed a relaxed evening at SalVe. Will definitely be going back.

Great value lunch on weekdays - at 6 pounds you can get a meal and drink. Very tasty spaghettis - my kids love the spaghetti bolognese.

Great food and wine. Salve is a kind of place one can feel comfortable even going alone. People there are nice and help you chose the right dish. I would certainly go back.

With all the chain Italian restaurants flooding the high street, the small independents can sometimes get forgotten. I would beg anyone to visit here instead of a chain Italian while they are in Croydon. The food is authentic, the staff are friendly and the pizzas...More

SalVe is a typically formal way to say "hello" in Italian. At the same time the word can be divided into Sal and Ve, which are the abbreviations of two different parts of Italy: Sal like Salento, the heel of the Italian boot, and Ve like Veneto Region, where the Venezia, is situated. Enjoy SalVe!
