Awarded 3 Stars "EXCELLENT," by The Bergen Record. Voted "BEST OF BERGEN" by (201) Magazine. Savini is a Sophisticated, Award Winning, Northern Italian/Continental Restaurant. Considered one of the most attractive restaurants in Bergen County, food is served at Savini in what was once a colonial home. What remains of the original only contributes to the aesthetics. But it is a positive culinary experience that diners seek and that is what they get at Savini. It excels in the three most significant barometers of a restaurant's health: Food, Service and Atmosphere. The cuisine is Northern Italian/Continental. Specialties cover the gamut – a selection of fresh fish delivered daily, homemade pasta, veal, chicken, steaks and chops. Enjoy coffee, an after-dinner drink and perhaps late night music in the lounge. Our cuisine and menu will please the most discerning palate and is both distinctive and unique.

I ordered the lobster tail with butter. When only two arrived the waiter politely explained that one had fallen and a third tail would be brought to me in a few minutes. I am so glad that it was. The first two tasted like they had been sitting around for a while and were just ok. The third one was delicious. It totally brought the meal up to my expectations.

Is it weird that ny favorite part of the mean is the cheese and olives and bread as soon as you sit down? We grabbed a drink at the very charming bar, and then were seated right in front of the fireplace which was so perfect. The escargot and Lamb Chops were fantastic, my husband had clams oregano and shrimp savini, which is his go-to everytime. Service was fantastic as always and we cannot wait to go back. Perfect date night!

We were a party of 6 and it was all of ours first time at Savini. The atmosphere is beautiful, elegant with old warm charm. We were seated promptly no wait and then everything from then on was better and better. It was a friends birthday so they printed out a special birthday menu for him!! He was touched and surprised. Our waiter which I can’t believe I don’t remember was amazing. Detail oriented and checked on us frequently. We never went long without our drink of choice. The food was delicious everything from appetizer to dessert!! Their carrot cake was delicious along with the tiramisu!! They did not rush us at all, we didn’t get up off our table till 11:30pm and our reservation was at 8! Can’t wait to go back!!

This was my second time to this restaurant. Food is always fairly good but the service this time was poor. The waiter had poor social skills, didn't know the menu well and seemed disengaged like this was the last place he wanted to be. Not a great experience -wait staff needs better training.

Savini never disappoints. Good martinis, great menu with a good selections of daily specials. Fish, pasta, meats all shine. Don't miss the fresh berries and cannoli cream for dessert. The berries are plump & fresh, and the cannoli cream the best! Service is always attentive - no waiving someone down to pour wine, fill water, or clear the table. Consistent winner.

My girlfriend and I frequently dine at Savini. The manager Salih was great as always, he treats us like family every time that we’re there. He makes us feel comfortable and in a great atmosphere the second that we walk in. Our servers name was spider, it was our first time having him and he gave excellent service the entire time, he is the best server that I have had at this location. I will definitely continue to request him for future visits. Savini is always at the top of our list of where we choose to eat for special occasions or just a night out and this is why. We have never been disappointed

Wonderful Italian restaurant! Went for our Anniversary dinner and although restaurant was busy, it was quiet enough to have a conversation. Fried Calamari appetizer was perfect, Seafood Linguini and Veal Entree were delicious. Portion sizes were just right and we had room for dessert. Excellent service. Mentioned to the hostess we will be coming back with my elderly parents and she kindly suggested to make sure we request a downstairs room at our next reservation if we need to avoid stairs.

This is our restaurant of choice while in the area which happens about 2-3 times a year. The service is always outstanding! The food is always good. This particular evening we had the homemade fettuccine with white truffle. Yes, an expensive dish but we are true white truffle lovers! Unfortunately this dish was a bit disappointing...the pasta was tasteless, if not for the white truffles it would have been hard to identify a flavor. The entrees were good but the general food experience did not meet our past recollections. Again, I must say the service is always outstanding.
