Consistent, creative, high quality dining, and seamlessly orchestrated service has been the hallmark of Savona's success for over 19 years…..

A marble bar, sexy outdoor patio and upstairs wine lounge will set the stage for a spirit of relaxation and conviviality. Executive Chef, Drew Masciangelo continues to employ his "farm to table" approach with a soulful regional Italian menu inspired by his Abruzesse heritage. All selections are prepared with simplicity, consistency and the attention to detail Savona has provided for decades.

So... sit back...relax...swirl a glass of vino from the largest wine cellar in PA and enjoy the new Savona!

The food here is really delicious. The pastas are handmade!! I havn't had handmade pasta in a long time. Perfectly cooked. The wait staff was friendly and were accommodating to my allergies.

The wood-fired pizza was absolutely fantastic. The only disappointment of our meal was the dessert...we got the pound cake and it was extremely dry.

It’s always a perfect evening when dining at Savona. The only complaint is that I always have a hard time deciding what to order. Food and service is wonderful!

Very little flavor and in desperate need of salt. Other than fresh food very little to be excited about.

I was a bit disappointed with the overall experience I had on Valentine's day. Hopefully it was just due to the unusually busy night, but service was incredibly slow from the valet to the wait staff. I wouldn't say it was at all worth the price.

Food was absolutely excellent, although very pricey! Downside was the parking situation.....took 40 minutes to get our car from Valet..........no self-parking available, valet only, and terribly understaffed! Put a real damper on an otherwise wonderful meal.

I have enjoyed Savona on several occasions, spanning work events, family gatherings, and celebration of friends. The staff is always attentive and friendly, thoughtfully answering questions about menu options (with flexibility to alter combinations). A work/family/friend favorite!

Had a reservation for a table at 7:30 and arrived early. Sat at the bar with Brad who made the experience great. First time there and he made us feel at home. We remained at the bar for dinner and took Brad's suggestions for a tuna appetizer, home made pasta and an extremely tender filet. Good people at the bar also made for a pleasant experience.

Go there, don't miss it.

Service was very poor. We waited 30 minutes before our cocktails were delivered. Waiter disappeared for an extended period of time after we ordered an appetizer before taking an order for the main course. From our upstairs seating we heard, several times, someone in the kitchen yelling at staff.

The food was over the top great. They seem to manage to get the nuance of home-cooked foods from Italy and beyond--very rare; I don't know how they do that. The portions are enormous, so be prepared. The salmon tartare is superb. Staff was wonderful. Inexpensive for the quality and experience. But order carefully because the portions are 3X what we could eat!

This was our first time at Savona. The food and service really were excellent. The main drawback was the atmosphere. The interior was cold, modern, and boring which did not compliment the historically significant structure. Given that it was so expensive, I would not go back because the atmosphere did not live up to expectations. For that price, the atmosphere should be warm and cozy. It should be darker with candles and more ambience. Also, hardly any of the original historic charm was maintained ed on the interior.

We had a lovely lunch celebrating a birthday. Service was very good, attentive. Fabulous drink menu, I recommend "on the roc"! All four of us enjoyed our meals carrying from pizza to salad as well as two lunch entrees. Can't wait to go back!
