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.

Not as good as I expected. Caesar salad was mushy and salty. Tomato sauce tasted like ragu jarred. Seafood salad loaded with calamari. Service excellent and outdoor seating comfortable.

Savini is always a dining experience of tranquility, old world service ethos, beautifully prepared and served food. You are never rushed, you are always taken care of and you feel treated like you are family. Savini is my go to for special celebrations, business meals, and friends get togethers. My dining companion had never been to Savini before. She enjoyed it very much. Thank you to all of the staff who made her feel so welcome.

This is a quaint, charming and inviting place for lunch or dinner. The wait staff are professional and friendly. There are always a generous number of choices on the daily special menu and the standard menu items are all also outstanding and a good variety. This is also one of the only restaurants where eating outside is as cozy and charming as inside.

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?

Food was delicious. Service was great and attentive. However we waited at least 45 minutes between appetizers and main course. Waiter apologized profusely. We told him it wasn’t his fault. We asked to speak to a manager and the manager was rude. I have never had a bad experience there, but if this was my first time there I may have considered not coming back because of the manager.

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.
