The location is great. Maybe the outdoor seating would be fun for a group. Was really looking forward to Savona but was disappointed. Nothing special to the dishes as far as taste or flavor. Not worth the price.

Outdoor seating when available and comfortable is remarkable. Bar is small (12 people) with extended hi tops (4) and then in-bar seating (12). Food is available at the bar but the hard ceiling, floor and wall coverings raises the noise level to the point that you have to lean towards the bartender and talk loudly to just order.

what a lively place! The bar was pretty packed, but I managed to get sat there anyway. I love the look of the outside - next time I plan on requesting to sit out there. Good food. Good cocktails

Savona has recently been update and the transformation has been great. New updated menu, plus they kept four of the original favorites. The updated decor is great, but just a touch less formal. The bar update is really nice and a place we hope to visit again for drinks.

Since this place is an upscale one- I was expecting an exceptional service. I took my husband to celebrate his birthday, and I mentioned the occasion when I made the reservation. Surprise! I guess they didn't get the memo. I've had such nice details for the same occasion in other places, but nothing here. Overall, our waiter so so, the food was okay, salad was salty, my salmon and the red wine very good. The best, was the valet parking guy!
VERY noisy space (we were NOT at the bar), more than I expected. Two tables away- we had a sort of a "housewife of Gulph Mills"; I couldn't even focus on my own conversation w/ my husband...she was annoyingly noisy. So I think the place is good for happy hour or something like that.

What is going on here? Savona was THE best restaurant on the Main Line for years and years... the food is still great (kudos to the kitchen!), but the current front of the house and service staff is in dire need of training to bring back what had been outstanding service in the past. Very sloppy service at my latest visit - so many flaws to even detail here - but very disappointed in how this 5-star restaurant is letting down its loyal guests.

We have always enjoyed Savona. It used to be our go to for special occasions. The food is still good and the prices are commensurate with the food. However, the restaurant experience no longer feels special. It is disappointing.

We very much enjoyed our meal. Two of us had the burrata to start and the dover sole special. Both were delicious but large enough that we could have split them between us! Some had pizzas and pastas and another fish dish. All was well prepared.

Savona is much more than a restaurant, it is an experience. They use the highest quality ingredients and freshest seafood available to the area. The chef executes his cuisine exquisitely grilled over local hickory, sauteed, or raw in perfect simplicity. Every element on the plates are heard as part of the orchestra. The service also dances along in perfect harmony. They look amazing in their blazers and ties all unique to their identity. Our server explained the additions beautifully and answered all of our questions about the menu in fine detail. The braised lamb shank served on the bone was a show stopper. Served on the bone big enough to satisfy a salivating rotweiler, tenderly braised down in its own au jus accompanied by cannelini beans with fresh mint and arugula was divine. The chef even burnt the rosemary sprig atop this masterpiece creating an insence that made a kodak moment!

came in during the snowstorm!! Sat at a table near a window in the back. It was very fun to watch the snow fall. I drank the bordeaux by the glass and my friend had the sparkling rosé. The fried brussel sprouts were delicious! I loved the dover sole. I mentioned how I wished for more sauce and the server heard me and brought out some extra! :)

While our food was very good, the service left much to be desired. We had someone different for every step of the meal which amounted to about six different staff members, yet still we sat without wine, water and long breaks without attention. It seemed no one was really overseeing the service as a whole. We had not been to Savona in quite some time and looked forward to getting back for this birthday celebration. Unfortunately, don't think we'll return anytime soon.
