Salute was GREAT - we were very welcomed by the owner and all employees! Great food, great service and we were not rushed at all. Would definitely recommend and hope to visit soon again for dinner! Garlic bread is awesome as well as the tiramisu!

You could take the Trumbull street exit of Arch street exit, any of the downtown exits are ok. The restaurant is right on the road around Bushnell Park
