We dined here on a Tuesday evening and we couldn't fault the food. Lots to choose from the menu and also the specials board. Will definitely be back. Well done!

Actually my wife took me out to dinner recently to Salinas. We love Italian food and Salinas did not disappoint. The food was great, service top quality, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We would highly recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner together.
