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.

Good local Italian food with hand made pastas and a great daily special menu that complements the robust regular menu. Good portion size and presentation. The bar is a noisy but friendly hangout before dinner. If you want it quieter the back of the restaurant and upstairs are more private

Savini is usually very consistent. Friendly management and staff, very good food and service. The other night I ordered the fettuccine with truffle. Expensive but usually worth it. I mean DELICIOUS. Unfortunately, it came looking mushy with a strange pile of dark shreds on top, unlike shaved truffle. I hoped for the best but the dish was overcooked and bland. I didn’t finish it and the server didn’t ask why. On the other hand, my husband ordered the filet mignon and it was outstanding, as usual. Cooked properly and very flavorful for filet.

Savini

Thank you for your review and patronage. Just a note regarding the BLACK truffles: During this time of year, only winter BLACK truffles are available. These truffles have a hard and coarse outer covering. For this reason, these truffles have to be GRATED like the menu stated rather than shaved like your are accustomed to with a WHITE truffle (hence the "mushy strange pile of dark shreds on top"). Shaved vs grated yields a different texture. Also, black truffle is less aromatic than white.

Dinner with good friends at Savini's was perfect. Attentive service and very pleasant wait staff. Never felt rushed which was great because we chatted for a loooong time. The Mista salad was very fresh with a lovely dressing. Calamari was light and melted in my mouth. Entrees of Shrimp and chicken Savini did not disappoint. I highly recommend trying a memorable meal at this fine restaurant

This is one of the nicest looking restaurants in Northern New Jersey. That being said the food is mediocre at best. This restaurant is very popular and I may very well be in the minority of regular customers who find the food uninspired. That's not to say it doesn't taste good but these are dishes you have eaten numerous times before in decades long past. Mash potatoes, chicken swimming in butter, fish heavily ladled with sauce. It's a menu out of touch with present day pallets. I like comfort food as much as the next person but it's time for this beautiful restaurant to match it's warm decor with a more modern and talented chef.
One more thing. Checking in for a table in that narrow hallway is a nightmare of congestion. There is no where to sit to wait for your table to be ready since the bar stools always fill up very early. They need to use the room next to the bar more efficiently for people to be able to wait comfortably on busy nights.

Savini is one of our favorite Italian go-to restaurants! The food is consistently good, the portions are large enough for a big eater to be satisfied, and the service is excellent.

Sat down for a 730pm reservation right on time. Drinks and appertisers came right away. Dinner was not served till 9pm after asking several times why so long a wait.

Savini
Responded on February 7, 2020

"Why so long....? Because during dinner service at approx. 7:45, a kitchen team member severely cut his finger and was taken to the hospital. Being one man down on the line on a very busy Friday night created havoc for our kitchen and we could not get our food out in a timely manner and recover. By the time this happened, a majority of our guest were seated and there was nothing we could do except do our best. I am deeply sorry that you had to experience Savini the first time like this.

Stupendous. The sea bass flaked with a touch of the fork. My friend had the grouper. A beautiful presentation of cappuccino and a slice of ice cream cake. It was my birthday and they had my name on the night's menu. Now that is class. Beautiful restaurant in tones of blue and brown.

For the first time ever - we had a bad meal at Savini. That is thanks to our jerk of a waiter. We love Savinis and have been loyal costumers for years and years so it makes me sad to write a negative review. Our waiter spilled a martini (not even our martini) on my friend. The entire martini went on her shoulder and lap. She was soaked. The waiter instead of apologizing and running to get napkins - made a a joke - he said “you elbowed me, right? “.... Um - not funny. Through-out our dinner he made light of it - asking if she wanted another martini ...my friend was obviously uncomfortable with his humor and he was not funny and was really just a jerk about it. As we were leaving he actually said “another martini ladies?” with a smirk and laughed with another waiter. Really??? $200 meal and the waiter laughs at spilling an entire martini at a guest? Unreal. He should work at Applebee’s not an upscale restaurant like savinis.
