Italian
“Saba” (or vin cotto) is a syrup originating in Italy,
created by cooking down wine grape must. Saba
melds two ancient practices: wine making and
repurposing grapes that might otherwise be overlooked.

Saba Italian Bar + Kitchen showcases modern Italian dishes with an elevated twist in a casual atmosphere. Meant to be enjoyed family style, our menu features house-made pizzas, pastas, small plates and desserts, complementing an international wine list, unique & creative cocktails, and boozy Italian cream sodas.

    Finally tried Saba after years of saying I’d come. The service is amazing here and they have great daily deals like half off wine bottles on Thursdays, with a great selection. I noticed the restaurant getting a little busy as the night went on, but the staff is great and making sure everything was going great throughout the meal. My friend and I have agreed to come back and try more of their pizzas!

    I have nothing bad to say about the restaurant or staff, everyone was very welcoming as we came in. I went to the bathroom after we were seated. I was shocked when I walked into the men’s room. It stunk like sewage and it was super dirty. Garbage was overflowing, the sink had hair all over it and toilet looked like it hadn’t been cleaned all weekend. We had a drink and took off. The owner should really do something about that.

    I got a cocktail with egg white foam on top. It smelled so bad! I could hardly drink it. Then I got a beef filet topped with prosciutto. The meat was almost too difficult to cut. It was more like a tough round steak instead of a filet. I was really disappointed.

    It was good overall. For the price of the food/drinks, I would think there would be at least better service. Our waitress took forever to come around to our table. Our water was refilled once by a manager I think and the waitress would leave our table super quick without being able to finish a sentence. This occurred with the bill. We had to get up and flag her down. We could have left sooner and wanted to leave sooner, but she’d barely came around. We were too shy to go flag her down every time until the end. We were accommodated to a different table as their vents were dripping where we were originally sitting so that’s nice. All in all. I won’t be coming again. It was a good experience, but not a great one.

    Saba took it upon themselves to close early without letting me know, I had called to tell move my reservation from 9 to 9:30, which they said was ok, when I arrived at 9:34, the doors were locked and I was not informed that were closing early. Luckily, I know the area well so I knew other restaurants that would be open ON A SATURDAY NIGHT past 9:30 pm. It’s unfortunate cause I love this restaurant but poor service and poor communication is a deal breaker. Not sure if I will return.

    We chose Saba for its location, and knew nothing about it going in, so we really had zero expectations. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, the Caesar salad (light, garlicky and tasty dressing) was delicious, the pizza had great flavor and crispy crust, and our entrees were great and even came with a bit of a show (the pasta tossed in the Parmesan wheel). We couldn’t have been more pleasantly surprised and will definitely recommend and return!

    The food was great the ambiance too. The only thing I did not like was they included children as adults for a party of six and charged a fee for that and then $8.00 for a convenance fee. I think that is ridiculous!

    Our server was very accommodating and fun. Half of our party arrived late, and our server didn't miss a beat. Kept the food and drinks coming graciously and at a smooth pace, even though we were all ordering different courses at different times. The server took great care of us, like a pro! Also, the food was awesome! We will be back!

    The service was really prompt, friendly, and great. The cocktails were a nice balance of creative and authentic, paying homage to classic Italian drinks while adding a unique touch. The food was good - we really enjoyed the Chilean Sea Bass. We also felt that the prices were extremely reasonable for the quality of the food and service. We would recommend dining here!

    Saba is a great place - the food is very good. We asked our waiter if it was possible to get some more sauce for the lasagna, because there truly wasn't enough. He shook his head and never brought us sauce ... in fact, he kinda ghosted us until we were done eating. We asked him about the sauce and he said that everything is measured out & there wasn't any extra sauce ... why he couldn't just say that to us the first time, would have saved us frustration. Otherwise, great meal & we'll be back, but NOTE TO MANAGEMENT ... don't skimp on the sauce, please!
