I saw the "love letter to Quinn's" posted on this board and thought I should write the same type of rhapsody for Salvatore's. We had dinner there again last night and the food, the service, and the atmosphere were outstanding. I had a salad, bread, and the polla e coppa -- chicken with coppa and smoked mozarella with a light cream sauce and a side of pasta. My dinner companion had the veal saltimbuco. With a glass of wine each, the tab was just under $60. The food arrived at the table piping hot and it was outstanding. From talking to the wait staff, we've learned that instead of working in the front of the house, Salvatore is now in the kitchen himself nearly every night. I think this change has really pushed the food from very good to exceptional. It also has a great neighborhood atmosphere. I know it's been there for years and is not a hipster spot but it is such good food and good value compared to a number of restaurants with more buzz that I just had to hold forth on it's virtues.
