We love Savona and have been consistently dining there however we were so disappointed that our favorite menu item was taken off.


Please put the veal Milanese back on the menu!!!

We go to Savona for that special dish.

Our first time there. The food was delicious. We started with crispy artichokes & meatballs, then veal milanese & mouth watering filet. Rather pricey.

Met with friends to have a relaxing dinner and looked forward to trying some of their homemade pastas and gelato. Menu had recently changed - enjoyed the beet salad with whipped goat cheese, salmon with dried tomatoes - 4 grains- chickpea smear, classic bolognese, black fettuccini with seafood, and Dover sole special. Dessert included vanilla and mango gelato with a ginger cookie. Enjoyable evening!

My sister-in-law is a vegetarian and highly demanding of restaurants and the food that is served. She loved the various options, especially that there were gluten free options and several choices of fin fish. She loved the great selection of cocktails and after-dinner drinks. You hit this one out of the part for her, and she is very, very hard to please. Great work.

Went for the fabulous souffle. It was advertised on their website as being served New Year's Eve. It was, unfortunately, not on the menu. I was extremely disappointed. The veal chop picante was overly cheesy, and pounded way too thin. It dried out the meat. It's a shame to do that to a large veal chop. The meat was very difficult to cut, the breading came off with all the sawing I had to do, and the table was jiggly, making the whole situation a mess. I ended up bringing dinner home. My husband's venison was almost raw. It was such a small portion it looked like a sushi roll. My dinner would have fed two lumberjacks! Nothing special on the tables to commemorate the occasion like other restaurants we've been to have provided on New Years eve. Would suggest smaller, square tables so couples can talk across them, and not have to listen to the couples next to them. Tablecloths might help the sound problem. The baffles in the ceiling do not.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere and food as it was our first time going there.
It was pricey but reasonable for a fancier experience or occasion.
Wish there were more vegetarian options in the pasta category and in general as I had to order three appetizers for my dinner. But loved everything and the service was exceptional and we went to celebrate for New Years and would do it again next year.

The place was locked when we arrived on time for our reservation. It was 12/26, so we didn’t make a big fuss of having to call to be let in; after all, it was the day after Christmas. But despite my having noted it on the reservation then again with the host, no one acknowledged it was a 60th wedding anniversary (!!!!!). Food was okay; cappuccinos took forever and were not good. Not what I had in mind for this special occasion!

I was quite disappointed with my experience at Savona on 12/15/18. I had made the reservation to celebrate a birthday and was underwhelmed by the quality of service and command of the room. Our server seemed to be going in too many directions to be able to keep track of our order. We started the meal with a dozen oysters which took nearly 20 minutes to arrive and ended up being delivered after our salads. When the salads and oysters were cleared our silverware was taken as well and not replaced. This made it difficult to begin our entrees when they were served. The quality and taste of the food was pretty good, but the service was greatly lacking.

From an environment perspective, this was a terrible experience. There was a table near us that was loud and rude. It was to a point that the couple next to us left without ordering meals. Coming from a background in restaurants, this should have been a red flag that there was an issue. A manager should have been able to identify this and address the issue by asking the loud table to tone down their conversation to respect the rest of the diners.

Very disappointed with our experience this time. We were seated 30 minutes before our cocktails finally arrived. Two of our entrees (veal milanese) we’re over cooked, but managed to arrive to the table lukewarm, one over seasoned, one under. Server was overwhelmed and inattentive.

The food was wonderful, the ambience was great, and the staff was very attentive. I loved eating here and would come back again.

Only negative was the parking situation. It's not clearly indicated that the parking behind the restaurant is valet-only, so I was trapped into using it because I couldn't back out or turn around. When we finally went to leave, it probably took us about 15 minutes to get my car from the valet. Next time, I'll just park across the street behind the Sunoco to avoid the hassle.

Horrible service. Tables all around seated after us served first. Server "forgot" our app, brought amuse bouche from chef 30 min after sitting at table. Entrees good but one clearly sat under the lights. Asked for manager, he arrived, listened, acknowledged service issues, offered to pay for check. Check arrived, no adjustment and mgr nowhere in sight. Don't even get me started about the overwhelmed valet stand....

Made reservation for our Anniversary, yet not one mention of "Thank you for having your Anniv dinner with us". Most restaurants do comp a little dessert which isn't what I was expecting, but with no mention, it felt like just a regular Sat night dinner. The appetizers were brought out all at once and the entrees were brought out immediately, so we felt very rushed. We wanted to sit, talk, drink and relax while we had the apps, but it was like they were waiting around the corner with the entrees and boom, they were in our face. The food was not timed very well.

I have been dining at Savona for 10 years, experiencing its varing images. Their most recent menu change is a win in my opinion. Very focused menu that is well executed and consistent. The artichoke soup and branzino are particular favorites. I’m pleased that the bar has returned to the top notch level I had grown to love. Papi, the head mixologist, creates a warm and friendly bar environment enhanced by his inventive cocktails.

I was underwhelmed by the food which historically has been very good. I love the ambiance of eating at the bar and friendly service but the food was below average. My wife had the cacio e pepe and not good - the pasta was drenched in a flavorless sauce and my veal Milanese was flavorless and very dry.
