Savini is one of the best restaurants in northern Jersey and certainly in Bergen County. The ambience is elegant yet homey, the food is fantastic - every dish is a highlight - and the service is impeccable. They also go out of their way to make your special occasion special, complete with personalized menus commemorating the occasion. While children are rarely there, I have occasionally brought mine to an early dine time (5pm) and the staff couldn’t be more welcoming. Overall Savini is all you need for an excellent evening.
I have been going to Savini on and off for years. Whether I sit at the bar and have a drink and a snack or go with a group to eat dinner, I always had fantastic food and attentive service.
We are always treated like family at Savini and the food is delicious.
Savini is a special restaurant that my wife and I enjoy. We always go there for our wedding anniversary. I also host business dinners there. The food is spectacular and the service is exceptional.
Excellent food and even better service. They took backed my wife’s entree which was cooked with a touch of cream which had not been mentioned and brought back a fresh plate within two minutes (and brought mine back into the kitchen to keep warm). It was not at all like my wife had to demand or even request a change; they practically begged her to let them make it the way she wanted it. My Chilean sea bass special reminded me why it’s such a special fish; the flavor and texture were perfect.
Always a great experience. Great people, great food and great atmosphere!
We were warmly greeted by the owner as soon as we walked in the door! It was Valentine's Day and we had a wonderful lunch, served in a friendly manner by a well trained wait staff. The food was so delicious, so fresh and plentiful that we ordered another complete dinner to bring home with us! We loved our Valentine's lunch at Savini's!!! My only small comment was that we were seated in a full room that had tables close to one another. I saw the other side of the room was empty...and should probably asked to sit there, and it would have been a little more romantic. Perhaps waiters should realize that a couple celebrating a Valentine's lunch might enjoy being more private , and not being next to family , or girlfriends, etc, when there are so many other tables available.
Took my wife here to celebrate her Birthday. It was a Tuesday night but they had a fairly decent crowd. It was our first time at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice and although it had a decent crowd, the sound level was low enough to be able to have a pleasant conversation. It is definitely worth going to, especially for special occasions.
Lovely experience. Even though it was our first time there we were treated as if we were regulars. Food was excellent from appetizers (burrata special and crab cake) to entrees (salmon, halibut, and seafood pasta) and of course dessert. We enjoyed our leisurely dinner without any pressure and would highly recommend Savini.
As always, service, food and drinks were excellent. One of my favorite spots.
The food was not great from starter till desert. For the high price I expect much morgen then just great service
The service was polite, friendly and very welcoming. We were not rushed thru our meal. We were able to relax and enjoy our fabulous appetizers (the gnocchi are beyond wonderful) and drinks. Dinner was perfect and dessert was delicious. Thank you to the staff member for recommending the Limoncello cake.
My daughter has celebrated her birthday 3 years in a row and she is absolutely awed each time... my family loves this restaurant from the quality of food, to service to the amazing owner who goes an extra mile for the customers I will continue to make this our go to!
the staff was welcoming, kind and friendly
food was so yummy
As usual a five star dining experience. Was here for my birthday today and everyone made it very special. Thank you!!!
This restaurant is so frustrating. It has such a wonderful warm ambiance and the service is very good but I am always disappointed with the food. I keep going because it's such an upscale but comfortable setting. The last time I was there the chicken dish was blah and this visit the veal scallopini was like leather. Plus they should take a dollar or 2 off the price of the salad and serve half the size. No one at our table finished their's because it's way too large! I sincerely hope things change in the kitchen. But I probably won't return until I here it does. Such a great spot, too bad.
Savini is our favorite place for a nice dinner. Obviously, all our family knows since their go to gift now tends to be a gift certificate there! The food is terrific whether ordering off the regular menu or having a special. My favorites are the crab cocktail and the filet. The service is very professional from start to finish - the valet, the host at the door, the wait staff. We have been there quite a few times, either just the two of us or with several others. Generally we have gone on a Saturday night, which tends to be busy and a little noisier, but not overwhelming. This time we went on Sunday evening and enjoyed with the slower pace. Highly recommend it.
One of our favorites
Excellent food, attentive service, nice wine list and an upscale bar.
Excellent. The attentive staff is a plus for the restaurant. The food presentation and taste was outstanding. Restaurant is just a fine old world Italian restaurant. Consistent and delightful.
Awesome as usual, my favorite place. Outstanding food and service.
Never rushed, great service, like family! Lunch or dinner, it’s a sure bet!
We had a group of five. Service was attentive but allowed us to take our time. Everyone enjoyed their salads and entree without any room for dessert. Next time! The list was irresistible, like the specials.
After all of the rave reviews I was expecting to be blown away. The restaurant itself had nice cozy decor but nothing over the top. Waiter was great although when asked about a pasta dish vs. filet mignon he strongly recomended the filet. The filet was just OK and in hindsight I was foolish to order anything but Italian food here. My wife ordered the Halibut special which was bland. Again, we should have stuck to Italian food. I will probably go back again and order Italian to see if it is truly 5 stars. But for now they get 3 1/2.
I have been there many times ( with different people)and have to say:"Savini restaurant is consistently good in every regard,food service,ambiance..
Absolutely awesome birthday celebration. They did an amazing job of making you feel like it was your special day. Food was incredible, and so was the service. They never disappoint!
This was our 3rd trip to Savini and will NOT be out last. This is our #1 place for special occasions. The food is absolutely amazing, the drinks are great (and heavy pour), the place is beautiful and upscale but still comfortable. The best part about Savini are the people.. I have never felt more important than when we go here notable because we are on the lower end of the spenders here, every single person working there made us feel like we were the most important table they had that night - especially the manager who came over, made sure we were happy and even had a chat with us over a menu item (white truffles from puglia, OMG). Plus the food - its like bites of heaven. My only complaint is that its hard to get a reservation for people who plan at the last minute, because we would definiately go more if we could. (ps- if you tell them you're coming for a special occasion like a birthday, they print you a special's menu with the person's name on it, it was my wife's birthday - she took the menu home)
another wonderful meal! Every time we go to NJ we must eat at Savini, service and food is always great
Overall good. One meal out of 6 came out cold and was sent back and then came back overdone. It should have been taken off the bill or some other offer of a drink or dessert made. Nothing. And the person who’s meal was affected said he would not go back.
That being said and in fairness, my meal was perfect and I love the place but it only takes one bad experience to upset the meal.
