A word from Savona Restaurant
Consistent, creative, high quality dining & seamlessly orchestrated service has been the hallmark of Savona's success for over 12 years. Executive Chef, Andrew Masciangelo, uses his 15 year relationship with local farmers to source the freshest ingredients available. His "farm to table" philosophy involves handling products as few times as possible to capture the natural flavor intensity of each ingredient. Signature dishes include Dover Sole with Capri Lemon & Pignoli, and Salt Crusted Branzino and Shrimp & Scallop "Borsette". Masciangelo's cuisine is supported by world class service maestro'd by Maximilien Grange. Savona has the largest wine cellar in the state of Pennsylvania offering guests over 1,200 selections to choose from. Our Sommelier uses his studied palette, vast wine knowledge & soft approach to heighten each guest's dining experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Savona.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Once again we had a very bad experience at this very pricey restaurant. Service was haughty and inadequate in every respect and food was late and badly done. We do not plan to return. There are much better options available where these repeated problems simply are not present. Whoever is managing this enterprise needs to take a close look at what is being delivered to its customers. People will not continue to patronize an establishment that does not deliver. "

  • "Best duck I have ever had. Waiter recommended and he was right on. Loved it and couldn't recommend it more."

  • "The bartenders were knowledgible and helpful. Hate up a small tasting to a assist my choice of wine. Bar scene was up scale and friendly with nice mix friendly and cordial people. My salad was average and a but disappointing. I noticed no one at my table of six enjoyed theirs enough to finish theirs. New and more varied salad choices might be appreciated. my Dover sole filets were prepared perfectly! The accompanying sauce delicious. I observed a nice variety of desert choices, but abstained."

  • "We were eagerly anticipating our meal at Savona based on prior reviews. The ambiance was lovely, the wait staff were extremely attentive, and the meal was good. For the money ($200 for appetizer, meal, 3 drinks, and gratuity), we were expecting much more."

  • "Always driven by Savona and heard good things. Had an 8:45pm reservation, finally seated by 9:20pm. Had to wait 10 minutes just for the valet to take the car. Place was very busy, very loud, and the crowd was a cross between my grandparents country club and the Republican National Convention. There were tens of wait staff just humming around everywhere. I don't even know who our waiter was because we had at least six different waiters offer bread, water, drinks, and served our food. Overall the food was very good, but I cannot determine whether if it was truly worth the wait. Glad we tried it, at least our curiosity was satisfied."

  • "Our party was disappointed with the service..........we felt rushed and neglected both. The expectation for excellance, heightened by the French accents, fell further as a result of the less than competant delivery. The only server who actually provided service was the woman who filled our water glasses, brought clean utensils, and helped serve the meal. All in all, the pretension was a put-off and we will not rush back"

  • "We enjoy going to Savona for a fine meal. The quality of the food is very good, and the service is attentive. The past several times we gone, we've noticed that the menu has remained the same. They might consider changing up the menu more frequently or offering more specials."

  • "Savona was an upscale, Bistro with the most wonderful food and the most cold, rigid wait staff. The bar was late with our coctails which compressed our pre-dinner chat time...and you don't drink a lovely scotch with food. The salt sets up the tongue for disaster in my opinion. Then late again with our after dinner drinks. The place was pretentious in execution and we were surrounded by those who I assume could afford Savona but confused the ability to pay for having the good taste to enjoy the hard work of a master chef. The noisy small children at the next table didn't help, and if there were a smile to be had from service, it was forced at best. Great food, yes. Total dining experience...not so much."

  • "as usual, the food was really good, particularly the risotto and ravioli and dover sole. sommelier did a great job matching us with wine. service was a bit spotty all the way through, tucked back in the far corner of the porch"

  • "Savona the present was not the culinary experience of Savona the past. Their signature dish, Dover Sole, was not up to our pre-dining expectations which were based on having dined there when Savona was first opened. The dinner was for a very special ladies birthday, and both of us were underwhelmed."

  • "In our opinion, Savona is probably the only Mainline restaurant that can compare with the finest restaurants in Philadelphia. The food is special, and the servers are gracious, even charming."

  • "A great spot, as it has been for years now. Great bar and terrific service. The only letdown was my slightly overdone dover sole. Otherwise, food was very, very good. Drinks and service were top shelf. Highly recommended."

  • "Another fine evening at Savona. We were warmly welcomed and our staff were polite and attentive. Jason is the consummate Maitre d'/Server. Our needs were handled perfectly with the quintessential blend of charm and professionalism. We dined from the casual menu on this occasion and shared the pizza as a course. Great pizza! I enjoyed the veal milanese and my companion had a delicious short rib. Nothing to complain about; a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Cannot overstate how pleased we were with Jason, who knows how to pour a proper glass of correctly temperatured wine, not trying to empty the bottle in 4 pours!"

  • "The food was amazing and larger than expected portions, the staff was very accommodating to our party as some people wanted to order from the bar menu as well as the primary menu. I have to give credit to the restaurant/valet, the weather was bad when we dined and I was very impressed that when we walked toward the front of the restaurant, all of the cars for our party were already pulled up and warmed up, it was a very nice touch."

  • "The first bottle of wine was corked. The sommelier wanted to argue the point but eventually relented. We had two Sonoma vineyard owners at the table. The octopus salad ordered by two of our party was missing the Octopus. When alerted to this the waiter wanted to know what they did with the octopus. Outrageous! Overall the quality of the food was poor. I had the scallops. worst preparation and presentation ever. The restaurant was recommended by one in our party who was very embarrassed."

  • "We had a very nice dinner celebrating a birthday with 4 adults and two children. The kitchen was accomodating to the kids needs. I will definitely be back soon."

  • "Start with the sterile room next to the bar and the bare table next to a busy passage way and then consider the service that reminded me of a very busy but well-run diner. We've probably eaten here around a half dozen times, the last time a few years ago. My memory was of an elegant dining experience with superb food and caring professional service. Our 36th anniversary dinner this past Saturday was anything but. My lasting memory will be of a waiter quickly walking behind me while asking if we were enjoying our meal, with the end of his sentence spoken from five feet away as he rushed past. He did this several times; he couldn't care less what our response was. We won't be back."

  • "It was OUT OF THIS WORLD delish. Buratta cheese / fresh salad, followed by scallop and risotto (you either do or do not know how to make/serve risotto and trust me, Savona knows how to do both!), followed by a braised short rib that fell apart as it was plated - and it was soooo good. Each course paired with a wine that perfectly set the stage. We've dined at Savona many times, but this was our first trip to the chef's table / wine cellar - and it is truly a hidden gem. Big enough to sit up to 16-18 people -you might want to consider your next private function there. You know the food, wine and service will be spectacular."
