Our Story

We're a cozy neighborhood Italian restaurant in the heart of Nashville’s Donelson community. We welcome guests seven days a week for dinner and happy hour, along with weekday lunch every Monday - Friday. Guests can join us in our dining rooms (upstairs and downstairs), at the bar, or on our enclosed year-round patio (heated on cooler days, and open air on warmer ones). 

Our beautiful, two-floor dining room is awash in white oak woodwork, featuring soaring 25-foot ceilings, inviting leather-wrapped banquettes, a dramatic white oak & wrought-iron staircase & tons of natural light. The restaurant marks a long-imagined collaboration between brothers Bill Darsinos (GReKo, Southside Grill, SweetMilk) & Sam Darsinos (Darfons, GReKo). Their shared vision for Salento is a relaxed, welcoming gathering place to enjoy thoughtfully-prepared versions of comforting Italian dishes with subtle nods to their family’s Greek roots. 

We hope to see you soon for lunch, dinner, happy hour, or celebratory gathering.
