Salento Restaurant Bar is an all-day eatery in Poplar that’s dedicated to friendly hospitality and tasty Italian food. Run by two brothers Fabrizio and Roberto, this welcoming spot is a coffee bar, bistro and music venue all rolled into one. Visit in the morning and have brunch with strong Italian coffee, enjoy a quick business lunch at midday, or treat yourself to aperitif cocktails and traditional mains during the evening. The restaurant specialises in homemade pizza, authentically prepared in an Italian wood-fired oven. All in all, Salento is suitable for any occasion and take note, with its relaxing location in Poplar and a nice patio area for al fresco dining, the eatery is particularly picturesque in the warmer months. You’ll find Salento located on Clove Crescent, just a few minutes from East India DLR station.

Good food. Good service. Nice staff. Atmosphere could be better
A lovely evening. My five friends and I were staying in a hotel locally and booked Salento for an evening meal. All the staff were very welcoming, the restaurant was pleasantly busy on a Friday night and there was a nice little buzz about the place. Prices are affordable - I had delicious crab ravioli (£10.75) and absolutely lovely strawberry cheesecake (£5). The only niggle was no coffee/tea - but they were extremely apologetic, as the bar was undergoing renovations. I truly recommend this place. A very cute local eatery.
Delicious food, friendly great service and amazing prices for London. A big surprise, we’ll be back!
