Savona reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Service needs attention
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    We have been to Savona multiple times and have always enjoyed the food. On our last visit, however, which was on a Tuesday night, the service was abominable. The waitress was pleasant enough, but it took a quarter of an hour longer than it should have for her to take our order. This was followed by an inordinate wait for our appetizers - which were just a salad and a soup - nothing that should have taken so long. After that, there was another seemingly interminable delay until we got our main courses. Management needs to be watching service much more closely. We are pretty patient about service, but on this last visit to Savona it was simply inexcusable.

    We have been trying to eat at Savona for a while but it was always booked on Saturday nights. We went in a Thursday and while busy it was not at all as crowded or noisy as I imagine a weekend night is. Overall the food was good. My husband's pasta dish seemed small, while I had a pasta rush that seemed bigger. Birth were tasty. My starter salad - the spinach salad- was quite big and my husband enjoyed his mussels. We shared two desserts that were both very good - the doughnuts and the spiced apple sorbet. The service was for the most party very attentive though it seemed to take an unusually long time to get our dessert. That said, I'd be happy to go back either to get my pasta again or to try other menu items that also looked very good.

    My friends and I tried Savona for the first time for restaurant week. The butternut soup was good and the artichokes were decent for apps. The braised short rib was quite good (Celery puree excellent). The salmon was good but the fennel was just average. The highlight was the delicious pumpkin panna cotta dessert. The brownie was good but not spectacular. Service was very friendly but slow. We waited quite a while for our appetizers although the restaurant was quite busy. The entre and dessert was served in a more timely fashion.

    Savona is fairly close to home, and we ate there with friends for the first time on Tuesday evening. The entire staff was warm and welcoming, well versed in the menu, and eager to help. As a bonus, it turned out that wine by the bottle priced under $100 was half price! The food was innovative and quite tasty. Portions were adequate. Dessert - apple sorbet - was my favorite. Highly recommended.

    I really expected to like this restaurant but was very disappointed. The soup was warm not hot. Probably would have been very good at the proper temperature. Salmon was warm and accompanying grains were cold. Dessert was the right temperature but nothing to talk about. Didn't send food back; just won't go back again.

    I know this restaulant is not "for family use", but I really appreciate accepting us including 1 kid and 1 baby ! I love their food and wine. I am a Japanese and I think all of their food suits for Japanese people, too. Their wine list includes a lots of American wines and worth trying :-)

    One would think this trendy restaurant served extraordinary food in an exceptional setting. It is expensive and loud with an unaginative menue consisting of very orinary food. Save your money. There are better choices.

    We were looking for a place to eat near the highway on our way up to New. England. Savona fit the bill with respect to location and proved to be a fine restaurant. It's hard to gauge the good quality because we just had an hors d'oevre and a spcialty pizza, but what we had was excellent. Great bread! Mae would have liked the music to be a little quieter.

    We were seated promptly. The food was wonderful, from appetizer through desserts. The only drawback was the amount of time we had to wait for our wine. The wine list, although extensive, had very few bottles for under $50.00.

    We Dined at Savona Sunday night to celebrate a special occasion. The staff was efficient, and friendly. They made us feel as though we were the only guests in the restaurant. (very impressed with the service). While everything was delicious, I especially recommend the striped bass. delicately seasoned and cooked to perfection. The restaurant was fully occupied but not noisy. We may have just hit it right with a quieter crowd. Very relaxed and comfortable. All in all we had a very delightful experience and will definitely go back!

    Had dinner Wednesday night. Place was half empty. Given that, would have expected better service. Asked waiter for wine suggestions, and he didn't have any, surprising since they tout their wines. Then had to pour our own wine during the meal. Sounds a little elitist, but I think good service includes the waiter coming over to check our glasses to see if we need more wine or water. Food was okay. Ordered the branzino, a part of which tasted like it was burned. The big plus is that it's local and you can get a decent meal. Have eaten here several times before. Will probably come back. Hope the disappointing service is not the norm now.

    We were there on a Tuesday, so they were doing "Il Laboratorio". This is where you can try the potential new fall menu items and give feedback. I tried what was their play on mac and cheese, with torchio pasta and crab. It was delicious! I hope to see this on the fall menu. I also had the new butternut squash soup; it did not fail to impress. I also tried one of their new cocktails: Cucumber Cooler. It was so light and fresh, served with fresh rosemary. Although I did not opt for wine, I was told that Tuesday they have a promotion for 50% off bottles of wine less than $100. Definitely keeping that to remember. Overall I would highly recommend this adorable neighborhood spot.

    We are glad Savona has opened and been well received by Scarsdale residents. It isn't always easy to get a table here. We are pleased with the pasta entrees and the good wine selection. We do think the pasta portions have shrunk since they first opened. The short rib portion was fine though the sweet potato shavings or curly fries were not crisp. My wife's shrimp pasta was not big enough or had little pasta for some reason, ditto the spaghetti with meatballs. Pizza was fine as was the Malbec. Service was fine and attentive. Let's see what happens next time.

    Food great but service poor. First They gave us some other tables food. Then when our food came, one of the plates was not how it was ordered and without the right side dish. Meal took forever to come. The the open table check that we used was applied to the wrong credit card.

    We felt like the gentleman above...locked in a box...but an outrageously noisy box. Yet the food was just marvelous and the bartender/waiter knowledgeable and gracious. A woman who was attractively poured into a tight fitting alluring dress easily won the guest screaming contest..and was a close second in the most vapid while opinionated tournament! In a way my wife and I enjoyed it very much..we had just seen a marvelous new Woody Allen and the contrast of dialogues made the film seem better than it was..BTW try the fried artichoke starter..mouthwatering..but I think we'll go back!

    This was the second time my husband and I went there. I had previously been w my sister and a bunch of friends. The food is consistently good. I highly recommend the vegetable antipasti. Grilled to perfection and just the right amount of flavor. My husband actually ate the asparagus and he hates asparagus! I also really love the beef short ribs. Amazing flavor and the meat just falls apart.

    We have been here twice now and enjoyed both visits. The service is warm and friendly. The ambience is relaxing and cool. They are helpful with menu advice. They bar makes a mean dirty martini! Overall I like the menu, there are enough choices that I won't get bored quickly, and lots of lighter options. The pork chop is to die for! My only complaint is that on a very busy Friday night it was so loud, conversation was a struggle. Service did keep up though.

    Have been to Savona many times - girl's night out, a date with my Husband and as a family. Like the ambiance/decor and they have a nice bar if you want to just have a few drinks. The menu keeps some favorites as well as makes changes for variety/interest. All around good choice and a welcome addition to Scarsdale Village.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how this great place existed in Scardale and I hadn't been there before. The menu was creative and we ordered an assortment of different things and shared them all so we could taste more. Especially liked the veal ricotta meatballs and the risotto. My daughter noted how good the servers were and quick to return to see if we needed anything. Very chic decor. Will definately go back! Only hope I can get a reservation!

    Savona never disappoints. The food and service are outstanding. The menu changes constantly, without it being a wholesale turnover of the menu. Some favorites are always there (fried artichokes, cheese plate, salmon with white beans) while the crostini and other items change. The chef likes to play with seasonal vegetables and this often manifests in the specials.

    Savona serves excellent food in an upscale ambience on a busy corner at the edge of Scarsdale's charming village. There is outdoor seating and a neighborhood feeling, but the prices are high for what it is ($30 for a slab of red snapper, $20 for a plate of pasta). Our waiter was affable but inexperienced, enthusiastic and eager to please.

    Perfect restaurant. The food is delicious. Haven't tasted anything I don't like. Especially good is anything with quinoa or faro. The chicken is soooo good as are the short ribs and salmon. Try anything. Wait staff is very accommodating & professional. I like the ambience and now that the weather is nice you can sit outside. We will continue to dine at the really good local restaurant.
