Salvatore Ristorante | 1627 N Broadway, Walnut Creek, California

In the fall of 1996 Salvatore Ristorante first opened their doors to the Walnut Creek community. Owners Angela and Salvatore put everything they had into moving the restaurant out of San Francisco and converting former nightclub Chi Ho's into an Italian cuisine. Angela still remembers the day like it was yesterday, "We were scraping and painting for what felt like an eternity just to make this place feel like Italia". Over the years they have seen many families grow, celebrating countless birthdays, graduations, anniversaries and other special occasions. They have also watched Walnut Creek grow as a community. As Angela puts it, "If we plan on serving this wonderful community for another 20 years our restaurant needs to grow as well".

So with much excitement and enthusiasm, Salvatore Ristorante will undergo a major remodel beginning July 25, 2016. They plan on updating the dining rooms and bar while maintaining the classic feel they are known for. The kitchen will also get a major overhaul, bringing in smokers, larger pasta makers and new equipment to ensure everything is made in house. The menu will be streamlined incorporating more seasonal and local ingredients while keeping favorites like their famous lasagna and gnocchi.

At its heart Salvatore Ristorante plans on remaining the same but with so many changes they will also be introducing a new name, "Benvenuti". Angela's goal has always been to be very welcoming hence Benvenuti (Italian for welcome). We will see all the wonderful changes by the middle of September 2016 when they reopen.
