Saluté Ristorante – Morrisville

    Old World family restaurant in the tradition of Sicilian sidewalk cafes

    Can’t get to Italy? 

    Try dining al fresco at Saluté Ristorante at 368 W. Trenton Avenue, Morrisville, in the Big Oak Plaza. 

    You won’t be disappointed. 


    The foods of Sicily – from a plate of spaghetti to the chef’s latest creation – are calling you. 

    Make a reservation to dine inside at well-spaced, air-conditioned tables, or outside under the big white, breezy tent. Inside or out, it’s a savory experience.

    In Italy – and particularly in Sicily – the very best food is made from the very best ingredients in mom-and-pop restaurants. 

    These are the family-owned restaurants that are likely to spill onto the sidewalk or parking lot in fine weather with tables set up under tents, where the atmosphere is festive.

    Menus and hours can be viewed at 

    Call ahead to place an order for touchless, curbside pickup. 

    Hours are Wednesday-Saturday 4:00 to 8:00pm. 

    Saluté has been a Morrisville destination for Italian cuisine lovers since 2015. 

    Owners Vince and Kathleen formerly ran the popular restaurant Avanti in Pennington for 21 years until outgrowing the space in 2014. 

    They opened Ristorante Saluté in 2015, and got back to doing what they love.

    Indeed, Vince’s motto is “You can’t love what you do unless you do what you love.” 

    During a visit to Saluté, you are likely to meet Vince or Kathleen circulating in the dining areas greeting the patrons–some of whom have been enjoying their fine Sicilian specialties for decades.

    From a satisfied customer: “First meal out with the hubby at an actual restaurant since March. Saluté did not disappoint! Outdoor seating was nice and spacious with a well decorated canopy. Food was delicious and service was great. Highly recommend the rigatoni Bolognese. Just get it.”

    The menu changes seasonally and evolves over time, but here are some of the most popular dishes at Saluté:

    *Salmon Livornese: Salmon sautéed in a white wine with mushrooms, onions and capers, finished with a touch of homemade marinara sauce.

    *Italian Roast Chicken: Seasoned just so and served with roasted potatoes.

    *Pasta: Just about any way you like it. Rigatoni Bolognese is a winner.

    *Caponata: Chef has his own special recipe.

    Saluté Ristorante is a success because the owners are constantly reinventing the dining experience. 

    They love Italian food and they love people. 

    At Saluté, food is not just sustenance; it’s a shared experience.
