Went for a birthday celebration, upon arrival a nice card was on our table. From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed and extremely well attended to. The service all evening was impeccable. Food was mainly excellent although we felt two of the dishes were on the small side for the price. We will definitely go back to try other dishes.

Enjoyed the evening but the recipes lack focus, with less Italian, or even Mediterranean, but almost middle eastern at times in spice and delivery. Service was pleasant if unremarkable. I was disappointed about not having my reservation request for a quieter corner table met, with the opposite, a central table with people in immediate proximity.

Food was delicious. The food was not dressed up with affectations, it was just rich classic flavours done very well. The beet salad and the angelotti were faultless. My only issue was that the cocktail menu was quite limited, so plan to enjoy some wine or beer with your meal instead.

Great menu. Lots of creative options.

Not the greatest place for those with dietary restrictions. About 60% of the menu will be off-limits or require a lot of substitutions.

Quite pricey considering the portion size. Sharing is good but it’s easy to run up a $300 bill with appetizers, mains, and maybe a drink or two per person.

It is entirely possible that we ordered the best things on the menu because we absolutely loved our meal. First time going and will definitely return!
We debated doing the tasting menu but ultimately ordered individual dishes:
White anchovies with citrus — we’d fallen in love with anchovies in lemon when we were in Italy last year so were hoping this version would be as good. I assumed “citrus” meant lemon so was surprised to see slices of different citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, blood orange) but it was fabulous!!
Burrata, sunchoke, potato, ‘nduja — the burrata was not the star of this dish as you might expect; the sunchoke & potato combo was crazy delicious!
Roasted kohlrabi, fermented cabbage, apple, tonnato — really excited to try this cos i’ve only had raw kohlrabi before, and it did not disappoint! Very unusual but soooo tasty!
Ravioli pasta stuffed with lamb & polenta — not the actual title of the dish, but man! Really really good!!
meatballs — we always order meatballs in Italian restaurants and these ones were fantastic.
Cannoli — I’ll be honest and admit, i’ve never had good cannoli, yet it’s on my list of must-order foods. Therefore while it’s easy to say this one was truly the best one i’ve tasted, it really was super good.
All in all, a favourite dining experience for sure! Also, shout out to Esther, our fabulous server!!

Absolutely delicious. Service seemed a little rushed especially since it wasn’t full, was our first time so we needed lots of time to decide and the server kept coming back not giving us much time. Bussers quick to grab our plates with some spaghetti noodles and sauce on the plate (delicious sauce prime for garlic bread dipping). Beautiful decor and great ambiance. Will definitely be back to try other items on the menu!

Celebrated a birthday with a friend. We both loved this restaurant from before but this time the food was quite salty. Also our pasta came out 40 minutes later then the rest of our other food which we thought was a bit too long. The staff was very nice and friendly though.

This was our second time at Savio and this time we ordered our own items, rather than the famiglia, where they bring you a sampling of the menu. Excellent food and we were pleased with our choices!

We will be back!

We were seated right outside the kitchen server area which wasn't the best but the restaurant was busy on a Tuesday night so there weren't any other options. The cocktail list is too limited and I recommend they add a bar scotch as not everyone wants to drink expensive single malt. The gnocchi was excellent and one guest had the pork belly topped with an egg which they thought was delicious. The bread was also good as was the tiramisu. Fairly pricey; obviously popular. Will only go on a special occasion.

Best lamb tagliatelle you will ever eat. We had the family style dinner so didn't know what was coming- all was outstanding. Service was perfect- our waiter, servers, bartenders, and of course Paul. Our go to dining spot. Couldn't have spent a 50th birthday dinner anywhere better!

Had a delightful time at Osteria Savio Volpe. I found a few dishes we had to be unique and delicious combinations (e.g. roast pork tonnato, cavatelli with duck and chicken liver). The service here definitely sets this establishment apart from others that may compete on the food alone. Servers were not only attentive, but went above and beyond to make guests feel welcome and to set the tone for a great evening.

I was disappointed as I was very much looking forward to dining here. The ribs recommended were charred on the outside and shiny raw on the inside. I don't like to eat raw meat. I must comment that that sugo was delicious, but the price was extremely high for handful of pasta noodles and 1 meatball

Service was fantastic, but we were trying to have an intimate dinner and were seated next to a seat of 20 very loud and rude group who were yelling and swearing and dancing and taking selfies with flash during their visit.. There were also people chasing their children around the restaurant - screaming children) - who were a hazard to the servers as well as guests. Nobody addressed this issue.

for $150 for dinner for two I would have expected the food to be cooked properly.
