Just about everyone in Leeds has heard of Salvo’s. Opened in 1976, this busy, buzzing trattoria run by the Dammone family has been sending out heaps of Italian and Sicilian favourites ever since. From a lengthy menu you might go for king prawns with chilli or pot-roast beef in red wine, but it’s the pasta dishes and thin, crisp pizzas that people really come to Salvo’s for. In the old days space was at a premium and queuing was a necessity, but that was all swept away in 2011, with an extension next door and a dramatically revamped design. Now, happily, you can book – though they still leave some tables for walk-ins, and anyone waiting can make use of the upstairs bar which is suitably decorated with family photos, a real-live Vespa and a working jukebox. Salvo’s got cool.
