A word from Savini
Awarded 3 Stars "EXCELLENT," by The Bergen Record - 9/23/11. Voted "BEST OF BERGEN 2008" by (201) Magazine - February 2008. Savini is a Sophisticated, Award Winning, Northern Italian/Continental Restaurant. Considered one of the most attractive restaurants in Bergen County, food is served at Savini in what was once a colonial home. What remains of the original only contributes to the aesthetics. But it is a positive culinary experience that diners seek and that is what they get at Savini. It excels in the three most significant barometers of a restaurant's health: Food, Service and Atmosphere. The cuisine is Northern Italian/Continental. Specialties cover the gamut – a selection of fresh fish delivered daily, homemade pasta, veal, chicken, steaks and chops. Enjoy coffee, and after-dinner drink and perhaps late night music in the lounge. Our cuisine and menu will please the most discerning palate and is both distinctive and unique.

    The food here and the service are excellent. The wine list is quite limited, but they have a full bar if people prefer mixed drinks. It is a good choice for a special occasion

    Savini is simply one of the best Italian restaurants in New Jersey. The food is always superb and the menu has more choices than you could ever need. The staff is amazing! Professional and friendly and they make everyone who walks through their doors feel like a "regular." This is now my family's go-to restaurant for special occasions. Simply the best!

    The food and wait staff were very good. The bar was loud and a woman who drank too much unfortunately began wandering into the dining room to accuse an elderly woman of criticizing her outfit. Other than that, it was a nice night.

    I wanted to take my father out for his 83rd Birthday. I made an online reservation that was so We were immediately greeted and seated promptly. The staff was extremely patient and repeated the menu countless times until my Dad who is hard of hearing heard all of the specials. The food was prepared perfectly. The managed came over and introduced himself asking if we were enjoying our meal. I mentioned that it was my fathers birthday and how I found the restaurant. The manager returned to the table with the special menu that read "Happy Birthday Roy" my dads name. Needless to say this gesture made my dads day. I will return to this excellent restaurant!

    Food is always solid. Price point is slightly more affordable than comparable fine dining restaurants in the area, but the service is really what makes this place special. Went for a bday and they printed us special menus, did the whole bday dessert show, etc. Maître d' was always dropping by to make sure everything was up to par, seating was comfortable, etc.

Appetizers were excellent, some entrees better than others but the mood, service and experience is above average so great local spot! We would return again!

    The food is excellent and service is to match. We ordered the Red Snapper and the Veal Filet Mignon medallions. Both did not disappoint. Loved the peach and arugula salad with its terrific dressing. Chocolate mousse cake dessert and cappuccino and a nice Tuscan Red ended a memorable evening. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to all.

    The restaurant staff is very accommodating and thoughtful. Menu's were printed with the Birthday girls names on them. Very nice touch. The food was not especially good. Overpriced and mediocre. I ordered a special with lobster which was overcooked. My husband ordered a lamb special that was nicely done. A shrimp dish & chicken picata were average. Filet mignon was cooked as ordered and enjoyed. All in all for the price I expect more.

    The filet mignon was of inferior quality. Tasted bland, so may have been previously frozen, or imported like from Australia. Also was served under cooked, although it was sent back and fixed. Manager apologized and gave us complimentary dessert which was appreciated.

    We dined here recently on a Saturday night for dinner. The place was busy and almost all the tables were filled (a good sign!). This restaurant has a nice atmosphere and service is very professional and friendly. The prices are reasonable, a huge menu to choose from with specials, and you get nice sized portions. I was surprised they didn't desserts listed on a "menu", instead the maitre d came to the table and read them off. But overall, it was a nice dining experience and would go back again soon.

    As Allendale residents, we come here occasionally, for dinner as well as drinks at the bar. The wait staff is very pleasant and well trained. They treat kids well, and don't make the parents feel as if children are not welcomed. The food is always excellent - this time I ordered an appetizer (eggplant rollatini) and a endive salad. Both were well seasoned, and even tho they were appies, I still had left overs. It can be a bit pricey tho.

    We REALLY wanted to like Savinii -- the atmosphere is very nice. The service is really really good. Water glasses were refilled regularly and the waiter was on top of his game the entire time. Now for the negatives -- there really is only one but it's a biggy. The food wasn't so good. We ordered Veal Milanese and Chicken parm. To be frank, the moment I saw my wife's dish I knew she wouldn't like it. She barely ate anything. To be exact, she took only a couple bites. For me, the chicken parm looked good, but was rubbery to eat. The beans were soggy. My feeling is that the food was prepared earlier and microwaved to heat it up. We'll try it one more time to see if this was an off day, but right now, I cannot recommend.

    The service and the food at this restaurant are excellent. Waiters don't hover, but are attentive. However you are conscious that the management wants to move the tables along quickly. My husband was asked twice whether he was finished and whether his plate could be removed while he was still eating.
