Salvaggio’s is a new bar and restaurant in Jamestown hoping to succeed in a location formerly vacated by a previous business. But Jessica Bertran, Salvaggio’s business manager, believes the business’ customer service will help it thrive.

“Being accommodating as best as we possibly can,” Bertran said is the primary goal of Salvaggio’s.

With a full menu not specifically tailored to one culture, Salvaggio’s offers “everything under the sun,” Bertran said. She praised the experience and work ethic of the 12-member staff, including servers and cooks.

“We’re really good at what we do,” she said.

Anthony Salvaggio, Salvaggio’s owner, had an idea to bring business back to the building at 845 E. Second St. that formerly housed Miley’s Old Inn. Salvaggio was a previous owner of several local Save-A-Lot grocery stores, so opening a restaurant was an entirely new venture for him. In late August, the building was purchased and renovations ensued.

“It’s a completely different look than what it was previously,” Bertran said.

Salvaggio’s features a new paint scheme on the walls, new flooring, new tables and barstools and minor renovations in the bathrooms. A major over haul was made to the beer system. Using a glycol cooled dispensing system, the beer remains much colder for longer. A glycol system utilizes gas wrapped around the beer lines to maintain desired temperatures.

“It’s literally the coldest beer in town,” Bertran said laughing.

Salvaggio’s will have daily specials throughout the week like fish frys on Friday and wing night on Wednesday. Additionally, the restaurant will feature a burger night every Thursday, burrito night on Tuesdays and a meat loaf special on Mondays. Salvaggio’s is open seven days a week, Monday through Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

While the business just opened and isn’t holding its grand opening until St. Patrick’s Day weekend, Salvaggio’s saw a surprising turnout in its initial days of opening.

“We already have regulars after being open for five days,” Bertran said.

Salvaggio’s grand opening will be held on March 16 and 17 with a St. Patrick’s Day theme serving a limited menu with corned beef sandwiches. Bertran and Salvaggio are optimistic the surprising turnout over the initial opening will carry through the official opening.

“The hope is for it to be as successful as it possibly can be,” Bertran said.
