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.

As always, the food and service is impeccable. They work with your dietary needs and desires, just ask. I had veal chop parmigiana and my wife had pappardelle bolognese; both of which were not specifically on the menu. For appetizers I had the Savini chopped salad with crab and my wife had the soup special. For dessert we went old school, tartufo. Everything was delicious. Sully, Mario and the entire staff strive. to make sure you have a pleasant experience.

Everything was extremely well handled for celebrating my future son-in-law's Birthday. Beginning with a nice quiet table, a "Happy Birthday, Matt" printed on the Specials Menu, well mixed cocktails, great appetizers, really delicious main courses (the rack of lamb was one of the best I have ever had) through coffee and dessert. Service was excellent and a good time was had by all. We had our firms Holiday Dinner( postponed to early February) which was terrific as well.

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
Responded on February 24, 2020

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.

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.
