Salvi’s share plans for Corn Exchange over Italian feast

Salvi’s has announced plans for its new Corn Exchange venue which is due to open in September. And if, like us, you’re a fan of Salvi’s authentic Italian food, you’ll be pleased to know that owners Maurizio and Claire clearly believe that ‘if it aint’ broke, don’t fix it’

The new Salvi’s at the Corn Exchange is going to be more of the same traditional, rustic food, made from the finest, carefully sourced Italian ingredients which have made it such a popular destination for authentic southern Italian dining.

‘Fans of Salvi’s will
know that quality
ingredients are central
to their offer’

The good news is that the outdoor dining and drinking area will remain in its popular spot overlooking Exchange Square, but with space increased to accommodate 40 covers.

Order a coffee or some food and close your eyes and you could be in Naples. (But only if you keep your eyes closed).

More good news is that the interior will be spread over two floors. On the ground floor, customers will be greeted by a big Italian deli space where Maurizio’s carefully sourced, prime produce will be displayed and ready to go.

Joints of cured Italian hams; a full Italian cheese counter specialising in their own artisan buffalo mozzarella, but also featuring gorgonzola, burrata, parmigianino reggiano, pecorino etc; a huge selection of antipasti; carefully chosen Italian wines; and specially sourced products for the kitchen.

The famous Salvi’s deli boards will be gracing the menu as well as panini, antipasti, nibbles or anything else from the counter that catches the eye. Customers can dine in or pick up produce to take home.

Downstairs, an open kitchen will be at the heart of the action, serving up simple but exceptional pizzas and pastas, and daily, traditional, Neapolitan dishes chosen from Maurizio’s mum’s recipe collection – often cooked by her own fair hand!

Fans of Salvi’s will know that quality ingredients are central to their offer, and Maurizio’s best suppliers will be in residence. As well as his usual partners, including his brother who co-produces all their famous mozzarella in Naples, there’s a host of new producers to be introduced at the Corn Exchange, discovered during the team’s extensive research trips.

The new Salvi’s will offer a more luxurious seating and dining area including larger, comfy leather booths, space for big parties, and two very special private dining areas.

The Wine Room will be an area devoted to the appreciation of Italian wine. A space perfectly acclimatised for storing, admiring and enjoying wine – particularly with an authentic Italian lunch, dinner or over sharing boards. This space will be available for private parties, meetings and specialist wine tasting and food matching sessions.

The Mozzarella Room will be every bit as dreamy and delicious as it sounds. Mozzarella machinery and displays will make this a place to savour Salvi’s signature product. There’ll be regular mozzarella masterclasses and tastings, and the space will be available to hire for meetings, parties, dinner and general cheese worship!

Salvi’s Mozzarella Bar at the Corn Exchange will open in September.
