Salvatore's Ristorante

Salvatore's "trattoria" has been a staple in the downtown Muscatine area since 1985, when Reno Vitale moved here from Palermo, Sicily, the original home of pizza and pasta. In Italy, the word "trattoria" means a small, informal restaurant, often off the beaten path on a small block or street. Here at Salvatore's, we try to capture the mood, flavor and taste of the famous Italian trattorias. Come into our locally owned and operated restaurant tonight for a taste of real Italian flavor right here in Iowa.

Tee's Ice Cream

Reviewed By dennish414 - Traverse City, Michigan

The place does not look like much but the shakes and Sunday's they make are wonderful. We were just driving through the area on our way from MN to Davenport and wanted some ice cream....the Google map showed Tee's right ahead. It was the best stop we made all day.
You can't go wrong.

The Coffee Belt

Reviewed By Gloria O

Love this coffee shop! They have a variety of drinks to try on a hot day opt for a cold horchata latte which is a signature drink and on a cold day go for a cafe miel. This is a artsy location that has a great atmosphere and service, the workers are also very friendly and accommodating! This shop not only contains coffee related drinks but also contains a variety of pastries that are hot and ready, from muffins to scones, they even have tres leche cake! Everything is delicious and caters to all ages from young kids to adults! Great place and authentic Italian coffee. A must visit!

My boyfriend and I were out sight seeing one day and happen to see this place and we are glad we did! They have an amazing Mushroom Swiss burger! I got mine with their garlic parmesan sauce and it melted in my mouth. My boyfriend had the Philly cheese steak and he said it was pretty awesome as well. Oh and the Bacon wrapped Shrimp was an delicious appetizer. We will definitely be going back!

You order at the counter at this small restaurant. They have fresh scones in the morning, which are yummy, and several different blends of coffee. Lovely, light-filled sitting area, as well as an outdoor patio that overlooks the Mississippi River. At lunch time, they have wonderful sandwiches. Staff is friendly, prices are good, food is great, and atmosphere wonderful.

We stopped for a take and bake pizza on a snowy Sunday and enjoyed the results. The pizza had a good amount of toppings including fresh mushrooms and homemade Italian sausage. The only comment on the pizza that we had other than it was good is it had too much cheese. I know how could that be but actually the cheese was dominating all the other flavors of the pie. Still overall it was pretty good.

I think this restaurant is fine. I usually order the asparagus black mushroom or a noodle dish. My husband runs a little cold however. Freshly prepared, all entrees come with your choice of a little bowl of soup. Service is friendly, interior is pleasant.
