As we had reservations for eight or nine, we were promptly seated and attended to by a really fun waitress. The food portions were extraordinarily large. I would have shared my dish rather than have to discard more than half. Only a few people complete the entrees because we all wanted to try dessert. The molten cake we ordered (learned our lesson on portion size) was delicious but the cake did not ooze when cut.

I've dined here for lunch and dinner, for business, solo, and with friends. It's a cute restaurant with good service and a solid menu for what the place and city is. The issue is that the food is hit or miss. Sometimes it's good, and other times you wonder if the chef had a bad day. Ingredient accommodations are a challenge as the menu is limited in actual ingredients, but they're always wiling to try. Try the cheesy garlic bread, the one item that's always amazing. They're not able to handle when the resto is at capacity well, so stay away on nights when there's an activity at the XL Center or if you see a crowd through the windows.

Ate at Salute on 3/3/18 . Arrived at approximately 7:30 PM. Place was rocking and there's a little bit of a wait to sit at the bar for dinner but was well worth it. Bartender was very personable and although very busy, he didn't miss a beat. Started off the meal with calamari which was excellent and had the hangar steak entrée. It was cooked to perfection: mouthwatering, tender and ever so flavorful! Every plate that came out looked delicious. Well worth a visit!

I love this restaurant. The food is great and one of the owners makes you feel like Norm from Cheers. He has an amazing memory for names and greets you like an old friend.
The space can feel crowded at times but that is part of the fun. It’s like going to an Italian family kitchen - there is always room for one more. You often see them carrying a table or chair to make more room!
Great steaks, fish and of course pasta!
