Benvenuti! When Salvatore Dammone opened Salvo’s Restaurant in 1976 he had a vision, to bring a piece of his beloved Italy to Leeds. Five decades later, Salvo’s remains one of the most popular and well regarded restaurants in Yorkshire.  Now, as the second and third generations of the Dammone family proudly uphold the Salvo’s ethos of serving authentic, well prepared Italian food in relaxed, convivial surroundings, the tradition continues.

From free range eggs to locally reared meat.

When it comes to ingredients, provenance has always been important to us. You cannot produce great dishes without having great ingredients and being in Yorkshire we are blessed with some of the finest local farmers and produce anywhere. That’s why we support our local farmers and suppliers wherever possible. From free range eggs to locally reared meat and fresh market fish, we take great care and pride in our ingredients so we have great products to cook with. It’s the way they’ve always done it in Italy and it’s a tradition we’re proud to carry on here at Salvo’s Restaurant.
