The Dish

  • Deli 620 preparing new home
    Lindi Miller is, by nature, a happy person, but she’s just a little bit happier right now.
  • Area restaurants plan specials for Easter
    Easter is late this year – April 20 – and still I feel like it’s sneaking up on me. I have nary an item for baskets and have yet to pin a ham recipe (or bunny cake) on my Pinterest board.

New Italian eatery on city's west side

A new Italian eatery has opened on the west side of Fort Wayne. Salvatori's, the second location for the New Haven restaurant, opened its doors Monday at 10337 Illinois Road, Salvatori's New Haven server Brittany Turpchinoff confirmed.

The new location is larger than the original restaurant, seating 120 versus 50, owner Sam Leto III previously told The Dish. The menu, which does not include pizza, features sausage rolls and calzones, as well as a full bar.

"We've just over the years got a good reputation for good food and good service and a clean atmosphere," Leto says. "It's just time to expand, and the opportunity came up, and I decided to jump on it."

The new Salvatori's is located in the former Aboite Grill.
