One Year Later, Vetri’s Pizzeria Salvy Continues To Prove It Belongs Among The Best, With An Events Space To Boot

Pizzeria Salvy proves that if you build it they will come, bringing their friends and family.

What a difference a year makes.

When Pizzeria Salvy opened up last year in the Comcast Center Campus building, aka the tower with the sexy Four Seasons Hotel, Vernick Coffee, and Vernick Fish, people were a bit surprised. They were thrilled that Marc Vetri was once again applying his talent to create luscious pizza. They weren’t necessarily happy about the location in the lower level of the “other” Comcast building on 18th Street and Arch, calling it out of the way.

A year later there is more foot traffic than ever, and more people back in offices. And a year later, Pizzeria Salvy is still drawing people in – and rightfully so, judging by the people and stories shared at an intimate event to celebrate their 1st anniversary.

The pizzeria is in a unique space – it’s the only restaurant downstairs, kind of like a secret for foodies. There are two office/work rooms that are used by Jeff Leatham‘s teams. Jeff is the brilliant florist whose art adorns the halls of The Four Seasons, and his team assembles each jaw-dropping creation in those spaces – there are even signs that say “no peaking.”

According to the team, they’ve thrown numerous events for people who like to have a blank canvas to make their own, without having to worry about the details as the team takes good care of them.

Every place Vetri has opened has been unique and special. They have always been about convening people around food, welcoming them with warmth, and treating them well. There’s something super special about Pizzeria Salvy in that regard, and the fact that it’s paying homage to his father with personal and thoughtful touches throughout the space just deepens that feeling.

With his pedigree, Vetri could have put a restaurant anywhere. But he put it here because he loves the neighborhood, and wanted to give people who may have not had the opportunity to visit any of his other restaurants, a chance to experience first-hand what makes his food so special.

It’s been inspiring to see how much Pizzeria Vetri has grown in its first year, and how it’s branched out to become a special events space where people can gather with their families, in a space that is dedicated to a beloved father. Saluti to the team – they have done an incredible job.
