Great Italian Food
Savio's serves wonderful Italian dishes at reasonable prices. Only the desserts are too expensive. It's a shame, because we used to enjoy the desserts also. The dessert tray is very tempting.

Feel like a VIP!
I've been dining at Savio's for almost 15 years and have always been treated like a VIP. The food never disappoints and the servers are always warm and smiling!

A hidden gem!!
This restaurant has become our neighbor restaurant of choice. On entering we are greeted by the owner and his friendly and efficient staff. The menu is varied, with all of our favorite dishes and a number of entrees with a choice of red and white sauces. Portions are ample and the dessert tray laden with a splendid variety of meal closers.
We made the reservation through that excellent online service, Open Table, requesting our favorite table, which was . waiting for us on arrival.

Great gem of a restaurant
I would not have found this place without Open Table. The service was excellent! The food is authentic Italian. We will frequent Savio's again and again.

Excellent as Usual!!!
Everytime we visit Old Town Alexandria, Va. for the annual Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Run, we make sure that we meet local friends at Savio's.
The atmosphere is friendly, the food is excellent and all the workers (ie: managers, servers, etc)are 1'st rate. We enjoy our annual visit immensely and we look forward to next year when we, again, will visit our favorite restaurant in Alexandria.

Go for the food, not the vino
As always, excellent food, well prepared. The wine is average and usually served at room temperature, which is a little too warm.

A wonderful evening!
We were a group of 4, all ordering different salads and entrees, and it was ALL delicious, including the warm bread and seasoned olive oil. My veal was very tender, and my friend's lobster was removed from the shell at her request and served in a ramekin. My husband's crab ravioli was beautifully presented with thinly sliced salmon. My pre-dinner Cosmopolitan was excellent, served with a classic lemon twist (without my even asking). The Chianti we shared during dinner was also good, as was the after-dinner coffee. Our server was appropriately attentive and quite pleasant, and the evening was memorable for all of us. We'll look forward to returning to Savio's very soon!

Excellent as always!
I took three co-workers to Savio's for lunch, none of whom had dined there before. When we were done, Savio's had three new lifetime customers. I can't say enough good things about Savio's. Excellent food, excellent service, absolutely first class.

I am so glad to have found this place. The food was delicious, the service was top notch! We went for lunch, and during our lunch began talking about going again for dinner in the near future. We have been looking for a local Italian restaurant that was not part of a chain, that had good food and service. We found it! I had the lunch pasta with scallops and shrimp, yum! I would definitely recommend it. My husband had the spaghetti bolognese, and we both had the lobster bisque. Go there, you won't be disappointed!
It was very quiet for lunch and that concerned us at first, but after we received our food, any doubts went out the window.

Six people met at Savio's on a Saturday night and could not have had a nicer meal or better service. The food was really flavorful and original -- and just delicious. Not outrageously sized portions, but a generous amount. We didn't try the wines, so i can't comment on those, but the whole experience was very good and we all agreed and will return.

Savios is a gem!
This place should not be tucked in a strip mall. It deserves to be a stand alone building where people can awe at it's beauty. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was relaxed, and they have a special from Sun-Thur of $30 for a bottle of wine and two entrees. This place is just FAN-TASTIC!

I have lived in the area since 1997 and I've never been to Savios, what a mistake that was on my part! The food was great, the servers were so helpful and attentive, especially to my 3 year old son. Thanks for a great dining experience. We will be back!

Always the Best
Savios is the best little secret restaurant in the Landmark area of Alexandria, VA. The service is efficient and very pleasant, the menu is extensive and delicious, and the owner takes a personal interest in each and every diner.

Hidden Gem for Italian!
This spot is in an unassuming shopping center right on Van Dorn St near the Metro Station. It is right on the corner and very easily missed. Once inside though, you are in for a fine dining experience unrivaled in the area. The food is EXCELLENT, service is great and the ambiance of the place is wonderful. Can't recommend it i enough!

Savio's is our favorite restaurant
Savio's has been my family's favorite restaurant for 20 years! The food is outstanding. The service is always the best. We have brought many committees and guest to Savio's and it is always well received. We had 10 guest there last Saturday for my mother's birthday. Everyone enjoyed it! We brought another guest this week - his first visit - and he indicated he would be back this weekend!

Don't judge a book by its cover!
When we pulled into the parking lot of the strip mall, I wanted to find somewhere else. This restaurant didn't look great from the outside, but once inside, it was well decorated and nicer. Our waitress was fabulous and the food was SO good! I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. I will definitely go back!

We had a great meal with wonderful
We had a great meal with wonderful service. Snails in mushroom caps was super, the sausage pasta dish was great and the salmon dish done just right. We should have stuck with the plain garlic bread, the garlic bread with gorgonzola cheese is a just too greasy. Service was super. Everyone was knowledgeable. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about wines and was attentive throughout the meal. We had a very good dinner and will come back. Thanks.

go late in the eve with your date
We had early obligations that prevented us from eating early eve so arrived at 9:45pm. We were greeted at the door warmly and had the entire restaurants to ourselves, The wait staff helped us arrange a table in front of the little gas lit fireplace, as it was a very cold outside. (kitschy, but fun). Food was excellent even at the late hour and the staff were kind enough to be attentive but didn't make us feel we were imposing in the last hour of serving. They are open til 11pm on Fridays, so that worked well for us. My N. C. -based boyfriend is a traveler and seeks out Italian food when he visits. This time he declared we had found the best and that we didn't need to search any further. We will make Savio's our regular spot for dining!
