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.

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.

Good for special occasions. Prices on the high side but worth it.

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!

I wasn't fond of the mandatory valet parking.
The table was great but no linen tablecloths.
Menu and food both were excellent but the prices were too high and the portion sizes too small; poor value.
The service was excellent and the coffee was quite good.

Service was bad.
Restaurant was not busy and I still had to look around for a waiter, I needed to then ask the water server to take our drink order, then finally when the waiter came out drinks had not.
Had to ask the waiter for bread.
7:15 reservation and the restaurant was out of the specials already.

Lovely restaurant but lacking service
