Last week we went to Salvatore's, located in the South Boston Seaport area. It's the latest in a string of new restaurants that have opened in this growing section of the city, such as LTK (Legal Test Kitchen) and Wolfgang Puck's Water Cafe in the new Institute for Contemporary Art. A Morton's steakhouse is coming soon.

Salvatore's was launched by the owners of Sal's Pizza, which has numerous locations in the Boston area. Pizza is definitely a staple on the menu at Salvatore's. There are 12-inch gourmet pizzas (I had the Italian lover with prosciutto, sweet capicola, and caramelized onion.) along with Sal's signature 19 inch, 3-pound pizzas. There are plenty of pasta dishes and entrees, such as veal or chicken parmesan, marsala, and saltimbocca. Most entrees are between $15 and $22.

We went on a Thursday night and had about a 20 minute wait, not too bad. Lunch has been busy since the restaurant opened, particularly since take-out is available. There is a bar with a couple flat-screen televisions. It's a good thing the screens are flat, since the space in Salvatore's is a little tight. At least the night we were there, we were seated next to a large party and there was barely any room for the waitstaff to squeeze by. And after having added to your waistline with a good Italian meal and a couple bottles of Peroni, you may need a little more room to squeeze by. Salvatore's is at 225 Northern Avenue.
