As of January 2017 they have been closed for several months, since early fall. Please disregard the "open now" in the description by Trip Advisor. We look forward to the reopening.

I love this place and cannot wait for it to re-open after completion of their remodel. The menu and meals are very good. A great place to eat at a table or the bar (the bartenders are great). There are good specials too, which is always a nice surprise. If you live in WC, you know this place and if... More

Salvatore is terrific family-owned trattoria located across from the Walnut Creek library (where you usually find parking at night). The menu is varied and the food is delicious - they served the best lamp chops that I've had this decade! It's very popular so reservations are recommended. The space is small and it can get rather noisy. The staff is... More

Run by a sister and brother, this is one of the hidden gems in the Walnut Creek restaurant scene. There is a homey feel to the place, from the greetings you get when coming in to the local flavors of the family's heritage in Sicily. Never have had something I didn't like here.

We've been to Salvatore several times now. Have taken 2 different couples with us and been there once ourselves. The food has always been good, the service has always been attentive but not overbearing and the prices are what I would consider moderate for Walnut Creek. It can be loud so I'm not sure it would be ideal for a... More

The food here is so good. My boyfriend and I come here often. It's amazing. I'm not very adventurous food-wise so I always order the same thing. But I also also always steal a little of his and everything has always been amazing.

We wanted a quick bite and a martini before attending a watercolor demo at California Watercolor Association. Salvatore was on the way, it was 5:30 and there were seats at the bar. Leslie served up a Grey Goose for Marilyn and I had a Hanger One, up with olives, both icy cold and great. We shared a Cesare Salad with... More

We don't eat out often, but we were delighted to find this top-notch Italian restaurant right in the heart of Walnut Creek, just across the street from the library. We also don't eat meat out, and we found plenty of vegetarian choices. They make their own pasta at Salvatore's, and both my husband and I ordered pasta main dishes. I... More

I really like this place, the people are nice and smiling, good selection of cocktails, appetizers were ample and cooked nicely, the salads were fresh, and the pasta homemade. Definitely try the homemade desserts - especially the lemon chiffon cake - wonderful. We will return to try the rest of the menu. .
