Friends held a wedding rehearsal dinner here. Staff was very attentive and the food was great. They did a wonderful job and if we had more time we would have eaten there privately.

This was our first visit to Salute. It is good Italian food, well prepared with great quality ingredients. Wait staff was very good and portions were generous. We had plenty of time to enjoy a leisurely meal with friends.
