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.

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.

Very enjoyable experience dining outdoors - great ambiance. Food was very good. Service as slightly slow, yet that is to be expected when all tables were full. We will return for outdoor dining again soon.

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.

As usual, the food was excellent. The service was only fair. Ordered an appetizer and the main course did not come out until one hour after we sat down. The manager came over and apologized for the wait as we were paying our check.

Yet another lovely dinner at Savini! As always Salih the Manager runs it so well. And the Owner was on-site bringing her positive energy and exacting eye to everything. Business booming and my table of 4 had a lovely dinner. Excellent cocktails followed by just superbly cooked dishes including chicken Marsala, chicken Savini, clams casino, lentil soup and short ribs with fusilli. All beautifully presented, a lovely basket of fresh , hot bread and a shared piece of good NY style cheesecake. We went early but are never rushed even in a Sat night. Two of my party had never been but enjoyed it so much and plan to come back with their husbands soon.
Thank you Salih for another perfect evening!

It was an interesting mix of experiences. The outside tent is set up nicely, considering it is the parking lot. The lights and greenery make it somewhat cozier and comfortable to dine in. The noise level was surprisingly high. Service was interestingly paced. Quickly, we were greeted and seated. Our orders for drinks were brought to us very fast, but then no one came to take our order for quite some time. Waiters were standing around, but no one approached us. Our salads were served, and the accommodation to splitting a salad was very considerate. However, once we finished our salad the wait for our entrees was surprisingly long. The branzino special was excellent. The pappardelle pasta special was interesting. The pasta was very good, but the seafood was not, so the dish was not special or outstanding. Again, we waited a long time after finishing the entrees before a waiter came to ask about coffee or dessert. Same lengthy wait for the check. Everyone was very nice, but the wait times seemed a little strange.
