Rated 4.8 Stars OpenTable, 3 Stars "EXCELLENT," The Bergen Record and Voted "BEST OF BERGEN" by (201) Magazine and the Bergen Magazine year after year. Savini is a Sophisticated, Award Winning, Northern Italian/American 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.

As always, the food was spectacular, and the experience was tops. The best restaurant in North Jersey.

We walked in for our later reservation and the man that greeted us seemed somewhat annoyed and couldn’t find the reservation after we gave our name. My husband pointed to it and he sat us at a table and didn’t say a word to us. A little weird. It was freezing at our table- there was an ac vent above our heads and it was 60 degrees outside so ac wasn’t needed. I asked someone about it and I was ignored so I let it go. Our server was very sweet but not on the ball- maybe she was just tired because we had an 8:30 reservation but WE had to ask about specials and it was only then that she brought us a list of menu specials. We ordered appetizers and asked her to come back in 5 fo tour entree orders. She never came back even though she was also serving the table next to us. We enjoyed our appetizers and waited patiently. At 9:45 I asked one of the other employees to get our server and she came over and we said we would like to order our entrees and she was sweet and said yes let’s do that. Our food came pretty quickly, within 20 minutes and it was good, no problem with the food at all.
The experience would not stop us from going back and I understand that every night can’t be perfect.

Nice venue with a beautiful tent set up for those who prefer outdoor dining at this time. Only problem is that there are no heaters or walls, so it can and did get somewhat chilly. Food was very good but in the case of the double chop veal porterhouse it was described as coming with onions, green peppers and potatoes. That’s fine, but the dish actually had a very spicy sauce which was not in the description and is an important factor in choosing a dish. Nonetheless it was delicious. Wife loved the Milanese dish but the portion was smaller than normal. Gelato dessert was excellent, but $10.50? Really?

We love Savini, but tonight the Waitor was not great, and we had a screaming party of 6 in our ear. The wonderful manager did apologize for the noose though. We’ve had many many better nights there. Good is excellent

The service was impeccable. The bay scallops were awesome! Perfectly cooked.
The only mediocre item was the bread. For an upscale restaurant they should serve artisanal bread, not supermarket bread.

We ate dinner outside in the tastefully
plant decorated tent.
The thoughtful, custom made menu
wished a happy birthday by name to
four of our group.
Service was perfect- there but not imposing.
Food was delish.

We had another memorial meal at Savinis but this time in the tent outside. The tables were spaced well apart, so there was little to no passing of viruses.
The only complaint was that one of our ladies ordered a special salad and it was overwhelmed with sprinkled cheese so she didn’t eat it.

Always welcomed as if you’re family. Nightly specials accompany an already fantastic menu. My wife had an awesome mojito. I had the sprouts special salad with asiago cheese and bacon which was fabulous. My wife had the savini salad which is always a solid choice. Chicken parm with linguine is fantastic and the shrimp fra diavolo sauce is perfection. Service is attentive and consistently here is key- always great and always friendly- starts with the manager at door that has been there forever and knows everybody. Always a top recommendation and visit couple times a month.

I have always enjoyed everything, especially the food, at Savini's.
This was my 1st visit post-pandemic so I was truly looking forward to an outstanding lunch-time meal.
The service was wonderful throughout. The ambiance was lovely as always; the appetizer was very nice; the bread ordinary; and my fish was just OK-nothing to write home about.
I brought a friend for her first visit, raving about the service and food all the way to the restaurant.
The service lived up to all my expectations-my entree not so much.

We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Savini! The outdoor tent is beautifully decorated and the staff went above and beyond to make the night feel special. From a personalized anniversary menu to a edible chocolate wafer that said Happy Anniversary and not to mention great food, it was a perfect night.

Love the place, the food, always welcome nicely by owner - service is good. Love back room better than main room because of noise volume- very satisfactory experience every time we are going for years.
