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.

We eat at Savin's frequently because it is on point consistently. Appreciate the efforts of the wait staff. When we enter the restaurant Maitre D always says "Welcome Home". hence setting the tone for a delightful dining experience. The specials match the season and to some extent even the weather of the day. One of the best parts of the dining experience is giving Tony a hard time in a good-spirited way. Fun and good food define Savini's. Keep up the good work all.

My girlfriend is allergic to gluten and dairy, which we explained to the server. The dish she ordered was a veal chop that was supposed to come with a red wine reduction. We explained at great length about her food allergies and he said he would tell the chef. When the food arrived, it was a dry veal chop, no sauce or gravy. When we called him over we said she couldn’t have the regular sauce, and that we expected the chef to make an alternative for her. He had no idea what we were saying. Finally both the floor manager and hostess came over to see what was going in. I had to explain to them how to make a red wine reduction with corn starch and olive oil versus flour and butter! After about 10 minutes they brought out a dish of sauce to accompany the veal chop. The manager said the server was relatively new and they would use the experience as a teaching opportunity. When the bill came, they didn’t take anything off our $200 bill for the inconvenience or offer us a cup of coffee in them. We were very unimpressed and disappointed with the overall experience.

Then to add on to our experience, when the valet brought my car around during a thunderstorm, I notice my seat was soaking wet. When I asked, he said well it’s raining and he’s all wet! So that’s why I had to sit in a wet seat! No apology or anything.

Food was delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. They even went out of their way to call me and ask my partners name so they could make a special menu for us!

Went to celebrate my birthday and as expected everything was perfect. From the pleasant valet guy, to the host and owner greeting us at the door, and our server was so friendly, funny and enjoyable. I was one of 7 birthdays being celebrated in the dining room and everybody was enjoying their meals surrounded by family and friends as much as we were. It’s nice to see people put together again celebrating life’s joys. Can’t wait to go back.

This was a post pandemic lunch with a friend of 50 years. Perfect attentive but not intrusive service. Oysters from Canada on the half shell, crab cake, scallops, a Caesar salad with grilled jumbo shrimp, fancy gooey cake and a perfect crane brulee. I felt like I was coming home. SO good to be back.

Savini’s cuisine never disappoints. They are very willing to accommodate celiac dietary needs. I have never been “glutened” at Savini’s! We had Tony as our waiter today. He was attentive and very personable. An excellent waiter! The water server was extremely attentive which I greatly appreciate since I drink a lot of water. He refilled my glass without ever having to ask. We were not rushed at all during our lunch. The scallops were delicious! I highly recommend them. We had a relaxed, delicious luncheon! Thank you Tony and all the staff at Savini’s!

Savini's never disappoints! You are always greeted with a big welcoming smile! Our server Patrick was both courteous and attentive. The cocktails are crafted to perfection and the food always comes out exactly as ordered. The servers really aim to please with the little things. The water glasses are always filled, finished plates are removed promptly and you do not feel rushed. This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or if you just want a nice meal out. The bar is trendy and the bartenders are very friendly. You can grab a light bite there at one of the bar tables. The menu has something for everyone whether you want some light fare or a full dinner. Don't miss the desserts! They are amazing!
