Description: SalVe is a typically formal way to say "hello" in Italian. At the same time the word can be divided into Sal and Ve, which are the abbreviations of two different parts of Italy: Sal like Salento, the heel of the Italian boot, and Ve like Veneto Region, where the Venezia, is situated. Enjoy SalVe!

We had a great dinner at SalVe. This family owned restaurant uses fresh ingredients and takes pride in providing delicious brick oven pizzas and pastas. Their pasta special (sausage, truffle in a white wine Ragu) was one of the best we’ve experienced.
Andrea and Enrica were great hosts :)
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Tasty italian food with a sheek interior design. pasta was fresh and full of flavours.

Only downer i could note was that the service was a little slow, however the server was lovely!!

Will visit again.

Hello Dear,

I am so sorry for your experience, but I am not sorry and I will not accept the words fast food and frozen food. Obviously some certain ingredients are frozen which are better but in the marinara pasta mussels and clams are fresh and in Italy the pasta usually is al dente! Anyway your review left me a bit down knowing the hard job behind. And I personally hate the table next to the kitchen and if you asked to be moved I am sure we would be happy to do so or change your dish.
I wish for you a good day!
Enrica, proud owner and manager of SalVe ITALIAN Restaurant

Arrived as a family mid afternoon to Croydon looking for a restaurant which could accommodate gluten allergies. Found SalVe online with good reviews and mention of GF options. Called ahead of time and although it was due to close at 3pm they said they would wait for us. Sure enough they were open and were able to offer very nice gluten free spaghetti with a number of different sauces. For the non-GF folks, we both had pizza which was very good with an exceptional homemade crust. Service was excellent and price of 44GBP for 5 including drinks is remarkable.

Highly recommend to anyone and very family friendly.
