Everything was excellent except for the forced valet service. I don’t like not having my car keys. I lost my ticket and when I went to leave they thought they left my key in the car and couldn’t find them for several minutes. Maybe they should provide a self park option.

I hadn't been there for a while and decided to try Restaurant Week. Good idea, we had a lovely time and the food was very good, service excellent. It pays to give these restaurants a try during these promotions. Now we have a renewed interest in Savona. Notable dishes, mushroom soup, shrimp fettuccini, the pizza looked delicious at our neighbor's table.

This was my first visit to Savona, it will not be my last. I went for restaurant week, and the food was fabulous! Every course was excellent as well as the specialty drink.

Celebrated a birthday at Sunday brunch. We had the lobster Benedict and crab avocado toast both were delicious. The service was impeccable.

I never give outstanding reviews, because it leaves so little to strive for. Took my wife there for her 50th birthday. This was the best meal we have had. The Chef cooked a special fish dish for her birthday and offered it as the restaurant special. Papi's service and attention to detail as always was terrific. Our server Brandon was outstanding and the ambiance is understated luxury. Thank you all for a wonderful evening. Truly appreciated.

If you are looking for the top (my opinion) American/European fusion restaurant in the Philly area go to Savona.

Every dish we had was cooked in a significant amount of either butter or duck fat. The chef seems to be using cooking fat as a short cut to flavor.

Very disappointing...Used to be such an incredible place.

Three of us were there for lunch. We all had the lobster bisque which was excellent, but the rest of our meals were average, and one not good at all. It remains over priced for mediocre quality

This was our first time at Savona and we had a wonderful experience! Our server was just the right balance of friendly and helpful. The food was fresh and delicious -- everything from the pre-dinner cocktails and starters, to the fish specials to the cheeseboard at the end. We'll be back to try more.

Very good restaurant. Food & service were wonderful. My only complaint is I had told them in the reservation that it was my sons birthday and to please include a candle in his dessert. The desserts came out with nothing acknowledging his bd so I had to ask the waiter for a candle & then he got a plate with some cookies & a candle. Otherwise we loved it and would love to go back sometime.

We had not been to Savona since it changed hands some years ago. The food was outstanding; but the ambiance not as nice as it used to be. The service from our waiter, Kyle was excellent. We started with delicious oysters on the half shell. The Caesar salad was excellent. My husband's lobster risotto was tasty and creamy. My fettuccine with scallops and shrimp was fabulous. A little pricey for the food but well worth it. The drinks were oddly priced and they need to fix this; one charge for liquor and another for margarita mix (?). The former elegant, plush atmosphere is gone; now it is more contemporary. Still very nice but I prefer white tablecloths and chairs with comfortable cushions.

Wonderful experience dining here! The eggplant dish was delicious, sommelier took his time to explain different types of wines, and the staff was extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend Savona for date night as the ambiance really sets the mood :)

As expected, the food and service were absolutely outstanding at Savona which is what we’ve come to expect. Mark did an awesome job as our server. It’s always great to see Papi, he stopped by a couple of times to check on us which is so like him. I was a little disappointed in that I didn’t get my favor table but it didn’t take away from the evening.

Our table upstairs was way too close to the adjacent tables. My wife was seated on a shared bench seat 2 ft from either side of her neighbors while I was 5 feet away on the other end of the table. It was not a fun experience that we would do again. Brandon was an attentive server. Food was flavorful and colorful. Veal meatballs and artichokes appetizers were good portions. My wife had the eggplant entree which was also a healthy portion. I had the fettuccine scampi. The pasta tasted homemade but the scampi only consisted of 2 regular sized shrimp and scallops. Disappointed. Parking was mandatory valet, but vehicle came right back as we exited the building.

Great service. Apps, salads and drinks exceptional. Unfortunately, main courses were just average and quite expensive. We sat in quiet area, which was very nice, otherwise would be very loud.

We went on Valentines day, likely the busiest day of the year, so keep that in mind. While we did have a nice time, service was a bit scattered. There were some issues with orders (things came out wrong, people were confused - it was a lot to handle with all those tables) but the restaurant did comp some stuff for us when things were messed up, so that was very considerate of them and much appreciated.

Overall, Savona is pretty pricey, so we expected a little bit more. The food was decent, not quite worth the price. Dessert was EXCELLENT. We were incredibly impressed by the pastry chef with their creative, beautiful, and delicious offerings, but everything else was underwhelming. Again, it was not bad, good by most standards, but not at this price point. When you pay $40+ for an entree, it should be excellent.

Ambience was lovely, the restaurant is beautiful, but the way tables are set up it was very difficult to have a conversation. The tables are very long and rectangular, even for two-seaters, and they seat you long-ways so that you're separated by a decent distance. That meant my husband and I were basically shouting at each other to talk over the noise of the busy restaurant.

Overall, we enjoyed ourselves, but were underwhelmed by the service and the food. I know that it's a struggle to keep up with the volume of guests on Valentine's day, but if they couldn't handle that many tables, I think maybe they shouldn't have agreed to so many reservations. Perhaps it would be better on a normal day, but I'm not sure it's worth it to us to go back again.

Food quality and quantity left a lot to be desired.
I had the lobster cocktail as an appetizer. It was three bites of lobster with some cocktail sauce. My entree was fettuccine scampi. Due to the differing textures of the pasta, my guess is that the dish had been under the heat lamps for a while. Although the taste was OK, for such a high end restaurant, the quality of the food was disappointing. My wife had the lobster and saffron risotto: Another mediocre result.
A definite positive were our drinks. Excellently prepared and tasty!
We used to love Savona. But even on Valentine’s Day, the experience felt tired. We would rather spend our money at a place that offers more effort.

Always special meals at Savona with great service, beautiful seating areas and good food. They are responsive to each of our guest's needs. Special salute to server Sebastian who makes everyone feel like a queen. Valentine's Day special included a spectacular homemade pasta with black truffle. And our desserts came with Birthday wishes for my 103 year old mother, who ate every drop!
