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.

    We came for kid's birthdays and they created special menus for them, were attentive to food allergies and made our family feel like welcome regulars! 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.

    Dined on 8/7/2014
    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.

    But, the food is fabulous! Very diverse menu and outstandingly consistent food!! It may not be inexpensive, but it is fantastic if you need a reliable, friendly, yet high caliber ambiance for a meal. Also, works for seniors who need to sit closer to the door due to being physically challenged. Where else can you get escargots that are served to perfection! I had them elsewhere (very close by as a special on the menu) and they were not even close!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2003
    Dined on 7/26/2014
    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.

    This was my first time dining at Savini. I was expecting to find a quaint, quiet spot as I was alone for a Tuesday evening. I was warmly greeted and promptly ushered to my table by the hostess; at my reservation time and walked through a restaurant that was almost full and with boisterus conversations heard throughout the restaurant. While talking to the waitress about menu choices, one of the other staff filled my water glass and another brought me a bread, olives and cheese plate. Each of the three dishes I ordered arrived very well prepared, tasty and in a nice progression to allow some time in between to digest the previous course. The staff were constantly helping each other when one was busy. Excellent Food & Five Star Service.

    We went to Savini's for our 35th wedding anniversary. The waiter asked us if we came for a special occasion. When the menus arrived, the sheet with the daily specials had our names and "Happy 35th Aniversary" printed on the top. What a pleasant surprise. Our dining experience was top drawer. The food was excellent.

    It is a Secret" location hidden within the town of Allendale. It has a buzzing bar crowd every night of the week! The menu boasts traditional Italian food - the food is wonderful and they have a very a diverse Italian menu. The wait staff service is very good and the bartenders service is exceptional. The valet parking is a "nice to have" and helps on busy nights when you can't find parking. They have an extensive wine list that has something for every budget.
