I've been to Salento twice so far - for breakfast and for lunch. Both times the food was excellent, prices were very reasonable, and the atmosphere was pleasant. I look forward to going back in the evening and checking out their wine list.

Everything on the menu is of above-average quality. I am satisfied with their wide wine selection, tasty menu items, and espresso drinks are on par with your average cafe (although there are better coffeeshops in the area). The main problem with this establishment is that...More
