Always such a pleasure‼️ Thanks everyone for always taking such good care of us‼️ See you soon again 💕
Great casual vibe. The food is amazing, especially the Anglotti. It is the best pasta I've had. Their bread is also very good.
This is now one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver! The only downside is that since it’s so popular, it books very quickly and they pack the tables pretty close together so don’t be surprised if you are sitting right next to strangers with no elbow room!
Incredible food! And the best table in the house 😉 - small booth. Service was constant and attentive. Being very picky, only one guy (think the main dude) showed the warmth and interest in us as patrons that I would expect in a restaurant of this caliber. Overall however, experience was excellent and we will return - oh that food!!!
Great food and great servise! Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver:)
Food is always great and made fresh. We had to wait a while for our table since it was still occupied. They made up for it with some sparkling wine and extra appies though. Great service!
I have to say that I was quite disappointed given the hype for this restaurant. Maybe it was just a bad day for us or maybe we just didn’t order the right food but I didn’t find the food was anything special and the atmosphere was busy and noisy. I will give it another shot but first impression is only an average place with poor value.
Our party had 7 people, so we were directed to the family-style fixed-price meal. After a brief discussion about our wine selections (the wine list was quite decent), we were informed that the chef would choose dishes that would pair with our wines. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food (the Ricotta Gnudi was especially delectable) and the wines (the Lambrusco was lively and fun, and the Primitivo was lush). The desserts were equally delicious. The seating was snug, but not cramped -- in the end, it actually enhanced the intimacy of the family-style meal. After all was said and done (and eaten), the biggest surprise came with the bill -- we found the price to be very reasonable. Finally, special "kudos" to the air-conditioning system -- it was quite a warm (hot) day and the temperature inside the restaurant was perfect...Perfect...!!
I have to say I wasn’t happy with the meal. The collard greens were WAY too over cooked. I found the presentation sloppy and some dishes lacked flavour. The duck was tasty and the pan Cotta was great in flavour but presentation lacking like it had just been thrown on the plate. I have travelled a fair bit and tried tasty menus in many different restaurants and I would suggest much smaller portions with a sampling of more dishes. Service was great and accommodating. Thanks
We did the tasting menu and everything tasted great. We had trouble deciding which dish we liked the most. The staff were also very attentive without being overbearing. Thank you for making such a special occasion even more special!
Amazing food and great staff. The atmosphere is fantastic - relaxed yet upscale!
Thank you for making my son’s birthday special! Food was so yummy. Our waiter was great. All staff was great. Will recommend to friends. Only thing on wish list is that you have one GF pasta & bread option available.
Wasn’t as good as I’d imagine it to be. The pasta (with pork ribs, meatballs, beef?) was too saucy and the garlic bread was smothered in butter.
The service was great but the tables were unnecessarily close to one another (if you’re dining out with your other half)
Overall it was an alright experience and the food was okay. You’re better off at Trattoria for the pasta.
Seriously my fav restaurant in the city. Must get: Burrata and bagna cauda :D
Very enjoyable experience.
It was delicious and great service. Prices a little high for us... If it wasn't, we'll be back more often!
We made a reservation two or so weeks in advance and the only seats available were at the bar. This turned out to be great we got a lot of attention and great service because of where we were sat.
The two of us ordered the family style menu. This is great value but soooooo much food. Next time we’ll just order from the menu. Though this is a great way to go because you try so many things.
The food was good. When we got to the main dish it was amazing. But before that, I would say good.
Overall it was a great time and experience. I highly recommend the place.
This is my go-to absolute FAVE restaurant. Food & service are outstanding. With seasonal ingredients & ever changing menu, the dishes are prepared to perfection. Buon appetito!
We had been to Savio Volpe only once a while back with friends and had such an amazing experience then that my husband and I chose it for the celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary.
It was a delight from the start! My husbands parents had dropped off surprise flowers and a card for us before we arrived and it was arranged as a beautiful welcome to our table for two along with a glass of Prosecco.
The staff and service was warm, knowledgeable and ultimately professional. We decided on the Chef’s Suggested menu and it did not disappoint. Delicious charcuterie board, an out of this world kale salad, light as air pasta and the most amazing steak made both our meal and our celebration perfection.
We have done nothing but rave about Savio Volpe since our dinner and will definitely be back.
And deepest thanks for making a very special evening even more wonderful.
Great food. We choose our own meal rather than doing the "we choose for you" option. We enjoyed everything. Server was very knowledgeable and attentive.
Amazing dinner. We were celebrating our birthday - not only did they leave a birthday card at our table but also gave us birthday pavlova. Exceptional service
Always consistently delicious and a fun dining experience!
My favourite restaurant! Never disappointed! Servers are friendly and always smiling. Great choices in suggestions. Everything is consistently awesome!
I've tried to like Savio. This was my third time eating at there. Many friends and acquaintances speak highly of it but i just don't agree.
On a positive, some of the food dishes are excellent. The restaurant itself is a nice space, bright, airy and energetic but at times it's simply too loud, aggravated by the fact that some of the tables packed in too tightly.
I don't consider myself a 'big-eater', but on 2 of the 3 occasions i've eaten here i've gone home barely satiated. On the 3rd occasion i suspect it was because a friend and I spent close to $300 incl'd wine. This time i went with my wife and toddler. One of the dishes we ordered was a $24 cappelletti pasta 'share plate' that contained probably less than 20 small individual pasta pieces. My daughter loved them and indeed they were quite tasty, but i found myself increasing irked by a $24 pasta dish that wouldn't have satisfied an 18 month old child. I know what you're thinking, this guy's just cheap...maybe, but i don't think so. I don't consider myself price sensitive, nor would my friends. I regularly dine at similar tier restaurants in Vancouver and don't get upset by the prices/value.
The coup d'etat for me was the rather smug, nonplussed attitude of the millenial (no offence millennials) waiter to whom i complained about this matter. He barely acknowledged the complaint, let alone apologised, offered an explanation or a word with the manager.
My advice, if you want good Italian food, try Sorella on Cambie. Have the arancini balls followed by the duck ragu. You won't be disappointed.
Savio for me remains an 'Emperor's new clothes' restaurant. I just don't get what all the fuss is about.
My favorite restaurant in the city! I always go for the chefs tasting menu and always leave more than satisfied and think it is a great value. And their cocktails hover around $10 which I really love in a place of this caliber. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent restaurant, with fantastic energy.
Our server Nate was so fun and personable with great recommendations...
ORDER THE CHICKEN! Its to die for...
This is one of our favourite Italian haunts in the city. Vancouver is lucky to have it.
Noise level too high
I get to visit Vancouver about once a year. Since being taken to Savio Volpe by friends a couple of years ago, I book this restaurant as soon as my flights are confirmed. The food is of an excellent standard, with the serving staff being friendly, knowledgeable and keen to ensure your eating experience is the best it can be. The ambience of this restaurant and it's consistently high standards mean I will be back at the earliest opportunity.
Service was amazing. Very attentive staff. New plates and cutlery after each course. Good portion sizes for sharing. Dessert was excellent. Brought us complimentary starter sparking wine to start the meal for our anniversary
Absolutely amazing experience. The waitress was nice and cared to explain every detail in the meal. A slight delay in making dessert resulted in cancellation on the cheque. If i'm being picky, I would say I'm unsure whether they should really advertise their food as "everything is meant to be shared". Maybe I was just a hungry man =)
It’s a loud a bustling place. Just can’t beat homemade pasta and antipasto platters. Not a romantic spot by any means, bring lots of friends so you get a chance to try all the dishes.
Excellent fold and very boisterous atmosphere
Dined at Savio Volpe for my husband’s birthday dinner. This place had been on our list of restaurants to try for a long time and it did not disappoint! Our server (I believe his name was Nathan, if I’m remembering correctly) was friendly and entertaining. Atmosphere was lively, I was amazed at how jam packed it was even on a Monday night. The food was exceptional, with a particular shout out to the Ricotta gnudi, which was possibly the most delicious dish I’ve eaten in recent memory. We will most definitely be returning.
Food is very salty. It’s also getting pricey. The other hand dishes are getting smaller.
Thoroughly enjoy our neighborhood gem‼️❤️ Especially when with Friends. Love the staff, always so delightful ad helpful. See you soon‼️💕
Pasta was over salted and both my wife and I got violently ill from the food later that evening.
Good food and excellent service. The ambience of restaurant was nice but the tables are little close together.
Well worth it! We loved the food and the attitude was unpretentious but specific. Great experience.
Savio Volpe went above and beyond to make our anniversary special. The food and service was incredible as always, but taking the energy to celebrate with us made the difference. What a gem!
