Closed! – I tried to go here the other day - and apparently it has closed down! :(
I also tried to call - and the # was disconnected.
Great for takeout! – We have been to Saltimbocca several times (close to our house) and we love it for take-out. They're doing a take-out service where they bring it to your car, which is great, especially when I have the kids. I also tried their online ordering this week and it worked great. The people who work in the front are always nice and helpful. It's become one of our new favorite quick places.
OK Spot! – I was expecting more from this small friendly restaurant. Service was prompt and the gal was very friendly. However, when my order of Chicken Saltimboca arrived, the plate was swimming in watery stuff. Like the pasta had not been drained enough. Off to a rough start.
All in all, it was OK. I would recommend it to others a new option to Fazolli's or other fast food.
Tastes homemade – Overall, we had a really good experience here. I'm an excellent cook but would say the food was as good, if not better, than some of the Italian fare I've made at home. Average dish price is about $7, but we didn't think that was any more or less than some other neighborhood establishments that have similar themes (Barbacoa, Pei Wei). We also ordered the Tiramisu and I'd have to say it's the best I've had in Salt Lake. The staff was also very friendly.
Casual italian = fast food? – My husband and myself were very surprised that we ordered at the register off the board on the wall instead of an actual menu. 2 meals and 1 dessert, $20. Our meals came out quickly but that was the only thing worth noting. The 5 cheese penne was bland but edible. My husband ate a few bites from his chicken parm but decided that it wasnt worth the calories, even though he was very hungry. The famous raspberry bread pudding was nothing more than a slightly sweetened warm sponge. Next time we want italian fast food we'll go to fazoli's, at least there we get bread.
Needed something quick and yummy -- score!! – I thought I'd have to settle for Wendy's as I was in a hurry, then I remembered reviews I'd seen for Saltimbocca. Whew!! I will never settle for "typical" fast food again. I asked the counter girl for a recommendation between two items, and she steered me to the five-cheese penne dish, and I was very pleased with it. It came with a salad, which was the deciding factor for me (though there is a side salad on the menu for entrees that don't come with one). The only recommendation I would make is that for their dishes marked "vegetarian," putting sausage slices in the salad kind of negates the "veggie" rating. The pasta dish was quite yummy, piping hot, and filling. I will definitely go again!
It's ok, it could be better – So my group of friends have been there three times since they've been open. We keep going back to see if the place improves. The food is ok but could be a tad better for the price. We really wish they would include a breadstick or two with your entree. As their menu stands now, they should knock a buck off everything for what one gets with the entree. The people are good and they're trying really hard. We would really like to see this place succeed.
Great lunch spot – This restaurant is a bit hard to find, but worth it. I was there at noon and it wasn't crazy busy and noisy. The staff was pleasant and offered some tasty suggestions. I went with the 5 cheese baked penne and it was really great. The top was crispy from the broiler and the flavor was excellent. The atmosphere isn't anything special, but it was nice to be able to sit across the table and have a conversation (no loud background music interferring). The prices were really reasonable and I plan on returning again in the future.
Great Italian dishes and awesome desserts – My husband and I are from the East Coast and have been eating real Italian food our whole lives. Saltimbocca is as good as our favorite quick Italian restaurants back home. They have great pesto and the chicken saltimbocca is awesome (my husband's favorite is the chicken marsala). Also, we had the best cannoli in years over there and the raspberry bread pudding is a must!
it is closed – went by 2/20/2008 and it is gone. signs say for lease but all tables/chairs even flowers still in space
