A word from Savore
What the critics say about Savore "The featherlight pasta should make any Tuscun proud especially when tossed with a fine wild boar ragu" Ruth Reichl NEW YORK TIMES "Savore has the palpable ring of a true trattoria and serves food most Americans never thought could taste so good until now - at least on this side of the Atlantic" John Mariani WINE SPECTATOR "I Have found further unenriched satisfaction with plainly grilled fish, lightly napped with white wine and lemon zest..." Andy Birsh GOURMET MAGAZINE "SOHO certainly claims its fair share of jam-packed eateries. Savore serves solid Northern Italian cooking, complemented by an excellent selection of wines. Savore Has been selected as a notable restaurant in its category and is recommended by MICHELIN's team of professional inspectors. "Savore is not just another Italian restaurant. Its menu is based on Florentine dishes from Renaissance, and the moment you walk in, you feel like in Florence" Maria Hodgson NEW YORK OBSERVER

    In 5 days we visited 7 of the most wonderful dining establishments in Soho. Savore was by far the best food, wine, service and feel. We were never rushed, our evening was leisurely and relaxed. The staff was amazing and absolutely dear. I will always go back to Savore! Pay them a visit; you will not be disappointed.

    We and two other couples went there to celebrate my birthday. We have been there before and always found the food to be delicious! For a good Italian meal, I would certainly recommend Savore! Also, their prices are great for the portions. Their flatbread is the best that I've had and everyone raves about it!

    I have been coming to Savore for a couple of years and it is always a memorable dining experience. Recently we went with the group of 10 to celebrate my husband's birthday. The wait staff and the owner is always extremely accommodating and helpful at Savore. Regarding the food it is always the best. For the appetizer I had a one of my favorite grilled octopus with aioli sauce and my husband had lobster salad with asparagus and blood orange dressing. For my entree I had absolutely delicious lamb chops perfectly cooked and my husband had a half moon shaped agnolotti filled with goose in a truffle puree. Our friends who joined us for the birthday were so amazed with the food and happy that I helped them to find a new favorite restaurant.

    What I love the most about Savore is consistency .The food , service and ambience is always great . Either you go with regular menu or restaurant week. On a summer night I was seating outside and enjoy lovely dinner along with the beauty and passing life on Spring St . What a night ... Couldn't be better . Couldn't ask for more.

    Dined on 8/3/2014
    The location is perfect we were a party of 7 and was able to find on street parking which is a plus in the city. The food was Ok, the service left a little to be desired. A bit of a language barrier with the waiter and very slow service. The bread for the table was burnt I had to ask the waiter 3x for olive oil, twice for lemons for our water. The restaurant wasn't crowded so I felt that they should have been able to better accommodate our party. They ended up charging my credit card twice. Overall on a scale of 1-10 I would say a hard 5.

    I had the good fortune to visit Savore during Restaurant Week and so my three course meal was spectacular value! The waiter was very attentive and I felt at home and looked after despite visiting NY for a business trip and having to dine alone. The tiramisu was beautiful and I very much enjoyed watching bustling Soho go about it's business through their open facade.

    Le service était vraiment très bon, on nous a traité au petits oignons. Par contre l'entrée de mozarella de buffala n'était pas très gouteuse et les tomates pas mûres. L'entrée de trois thons (carpacho, tartare et tataki) était très savoureuse. Les pâtes étaient honnêtes, sans plus. Le Tiramisu étaient vaut le détour. Bref, une agréable soirée pour l'ambiance terrasse et le service, mais le souper ne passera pas à l'histoire.

    I've been to Savore many times. Each time the food and the service is great and very consistent . I always have paperdelle pasta and Branzino . Just love those dishes... Of course for the desert I choose ring cake , hard cookie with cream and banana , absolutely out of this world. Our fabulous waiter Jaime makes us feel special each time and let us enjoy even more. Thanks Jaime and Savore restaurant to make my dinner very memorable experience .

    Good food, a little overpriced and unpleasant at the end because they include direct in the check/account 20% of service (after taxes) without asking you or having you the opportunity to evaluate the service. In my view they evaluate the profile of the client, if you are not American like my family.....This situation argues against the restaurant.

    I recently celebrated my 30th birthday and brought a group of 12 based on past reviews that suggested Savore as a great spot for groups. The table was ready for us as soon as we arrived and the staff were all attentive and helpful. All of the food and wine was tasty and brought out promptly. Though I wouldn't say it was the best Italian food I've ever had in New York (a lofty statement!) I did enjoy all that I ate and my friends did too. For the occasion it was a positive experience and made my night special!

They had not overtly rush us out either, or else they were very good at it!

    I brought a friend to Savore today after I had a great dining experience a few weeks ago. The food was perfect. Really enjoyed the salmon and mussels with tomatoes. Light, fresh and delicious. Service is impeccable. Wait staff always available but never in your face. We were able to relax and enjoy a leisurely lunch without feeling rushed. Can't wait to return for another delicious meal.

    Four of us spend a late afternoon on Easter Sunday at Savore. It was a sunny, Spring day; we sat outside. The food was carefully prepared. It ranged from simply prepared, delicious artichokes, a wonderful grilled octopus salad to assorted pastas (light as a feather gnocchi, squid ink spaghetti, cheese ravioli) to Tuscan style steak and grilled sea food. All of it was tasty and well-prepared. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. We lingered for three hours without a hint of chagrin by the owners. It felt like a Tuscan Sunday. My guests are still gushing about the meal and the ambience.

    We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Savore -- a lively spot in the Soho neighborhood. The seating is a bit tight (typical in the city), but the service was spot-on, the ambience classic, and the food scrumptious! I had the best salmon I have ever eaten. We look forward to enjoying another meal at Savore.

    I MADE A RESERVATION HERE THROUGH OPEN TABLE TO ACCOMODATE 10 PEOPLE. I DID A LITTLE RESEARCH AND FIGURED SINCE ITS BEEN A STAPLE IN SOHO FOR MANY YEARS THEY MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. THE ATMOSPHERE WAS A LITTLE DIM AND IT WAS SUPER LOUD BUT BESIDES THAT EVERYONE HAD A NICE TIME AND REALLY ENJOYED THE FOOD. THE CALAMARI WITH MIXED VEGGIES WAS A HIT AT THE TABLE AND I THOUGHT THE PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM APPETIZER WAS FANTASTIC. I GOT THE SPECIAL WHICH WAS A FILET OF SOLE, AND BEING A PESCATARAIN I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST OK BUT THE BRUSSEL SPROUT, SWEET POTATO MASH UNDERNEATH WAS REALLY GOOD. OVERALL IT WAS A GOOD ITALIAN RESTAURANT WITH TENTATIVE WAIT STAFF , AND REASONABLY PRICED FOR A BIG PARTY WITH LOTS OF FLOWING WINE

    Over priced and portion was way to small. I ordered the gnocchi which were very over cooked to the point were the gnocchi were almost a jam like consistency. Being that i am not a chef i cannot judge but being italian and haver lived in Italy for 6 yrs the overall understanding is that gnocchi are supposed to have some tenderness and crunch to them since they are potato based. The meat sauce was flavorless. My friend had a plate of chicken which for $38 i expect 1lb of meat but no there was only 2 chicken wings on the plate which barely had any meat on them. Chicken was cooked well and was the highlight of the meal. In total i spent $70, i would never come back nor would i recommends this location.

    I went to Savore on quiet Sunday night . From the moment I walked in, I was greeted and seated immediately . Savore even honor my request to have a quit table. The staff was very professional and polite. Even if I'm not a wine person , the waitstaff recommended some special cocktails which was just perfect . I had a new on the menu kale salad and the Mediterranean sea bass which was made to perfection. Thanks to the chef. My chocolate mousse was a perfect way to finish the dinner. It's a great feeling to know that places like Savore exist , and never disappoints. I highly recommend this great Italian restaurant. Thank you Savore for amazing experience . I will be back many times.

The pappardelle were perfect cook aldente.I really enjoy my bufala mozzarella with extra virgin oil and homemade Focaccia. I felt I was in Tuscany when I dipped the bread in the green-yellow color of extra virgin oil, sipping a glass of Montepulciano wine that the owner suggested me from the list. Perfect choice.

    My husband and I discovered Savore several years ago by pure serendipity and it quickly became our favorite go-to restaurant in all of Manhattan. We've enjoyed many fabulous dinners there and we have also hosted special occassion parties there too. The owner, Paulo is a fantastic host and the service in the restaurant is impeccable. The food is so authentic and delicious and the vibe is always fun and energetic. We cannot say enough great things about this wonderful establishment.
