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.

    Always reliable...friendly, comfortable, delicious, professional just a few of the words that come to mind when describing Savini. The dining room is perfect! Warm and inviting, whether for two or twelve. The food and service are consistently top notch. Friends come OUT of the city to meet us at Savini...it's no wonder this restaurant has enjoyed such a well-deserved reputation as one of NJ's best!

    We had been to Savini in the past and it was always a good experience. We went to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. Our waiter was less then cordial. He seemed disinterested and cold. As far as our dinners dish was good but my husbands veal was tough. Needless to say we were disappointed. It will be awhile before we return.

    The service was outstanding and the meal was fantastic. The only draw back is the parking. You have no choice but to use their valet parking. Besides that, it was a great experience.

    Savini is far from home, but when we are in the area it has been our restaurant of choice. We have always been pleased with the service and food. This Thursday night was different. Service was very good as always, but the food was not up to par. Caesar salad did not seem fresh and the Bronzino looked like an appetizer instead of an entrée. The Bronzino tasted as if it had been frozen, and was pricey for its size - not what we expected from Savini. Since our previous meals were very good, I'll chalk this one up as an off night and maybe give them another try the next time I'm in the area. Also the Budweiser born on date was from June...

    We dine at Savini whenever we want to mark a special occasion, or to spoil ourselves. The food is delightful. As important to us is how welcome and comfortable we are made to feel.

    With a calming atmosphere this restaurant is perfect for parents who need to get away from the constant noise of their children. Set in a very quiet dining room so I'm not sure about a group night out here but for an anniversary dinner or date night it's just perfection!

    Ate here a few times and I had good experiences but was always side tracked on business functions. I went this time with my husband and a friend and had time to really enjoy the place. Best rigatoni Bolognese that I've ever had. The wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and went above and beyond. I am looking forward to a return trip!

    We had a lovely dining experience and the décor of the place is lovely too. The staff was excellent- from the hostess who sat us down to the waiters and bus boys. Manager was also extremely professional and gentile. We celebrated a birthday and the birthday acknowledgement at the top of the menu was very clever and a nice touch. Also, how nice of the Manager to offer an after drink to all of us at our table. Very impressive. The food was absolutely delicious. We had a lovely dining experience and will definitely go back for dinner. Thank you!
