Who says eating healthy means sacrificing taste and flavor? Or that you must forgo that relentless craving for lasagna al forno because your significant partner wants fried flounder tacos?
Well, Salute Italian & Seafood Restaurant is the place where you don’t have to make any compromises.
If fact, chef and owner Rob Stinson has perfected a combination of fine dining excellence with the atmosphere of a lovely beach-side café that features options for everyone. He’s even mastered heart-healthy creations with zoodles, or zucchini noodles. Heart-healthy, hospital-approved menu items are easily identified by the Salute Heart – and some are even gluten-free.
“We’ve got a diversity that separates us from all the other restaurants on the Coast,” he said. “We are the only Coastal restaurant in this category with traditional Italian, Coastal seafood, and healthy and gluten-free. Salute is three restaurants in one.”
This unique ocean-chic restaurant with magnificent local artworks
features an exhibition-style kitchen that allows amazing aromas of fresh garlic and delicate herbs to swirl and dance throughout the entire restaurant.
The three-tiered eatery offers plenty of classic Italian dishes made from the finest traditional ingredients, Coastal-inspired seafood, wine, specialty cocktails, and of course, sweet southern hospitality with heart-healthy options.
On Weekend nights & Sunday Brunch, Gulf Coast musicians perform live in the martini bar with renderings of classic Jazz, R&B, Soul, and Blues.
You’ll find Salute Italian & Seafood Restaurant at 1712 15th Street in Gulfport and all are welcome. So whether you are just dropping in for lunch after a swim in the Gulf of Mexico, a sunset dinner on the terrace under the majestic oak trees and magical palm trees with an amazing ocean view, or the live music in the martini bar, Salute promises something for everyone.
Salute also offers group and individual catering and is the perfect location for wedding receptions, business meetings, or family occasions. Reach out to Salute to plan your next event.
