Salvo's restaurant to close for £250,000 refurbishment

Family-run Italian restaurant Salvo's in Leeds is to close for nine days for a £250,000 refurbishment.

The Headingley restaurant, opened by Salvatore Dammone in 1976, will close on 21 February for a refit including a new walnut interior and an open kitchen centred around an Italian coal-fired pizza oven.

Salvatore's sons John and Gip now run Salvo's and are celebrating the restaurant's 40th anniversary. Salvo's has been listed in the Good Food Guide since 1985 and holds an AA Rosette.

"When my father opened Salvo's in 1976 he had a vision of bringing a piece of his beloved Italy to Leeds," said John Dammone. "Five decades later, we're proud to be committed to upholding our family's ethos of serving authentic southern Italian food."

Gip added: "In order to create something lasting we know that you must adapt and grow and our investment is testament to our belief in providing the best possible experience for our guests, old and new. We're excited to be firing up our new pizza oven for the first time and welcoming all our friends to the newly refurbished Salvos on 3 March."

Although the restaurant will be closed, the neighbouring Salumeria will remain open as a café and delicatessen during the work.
