Wonderfully personable management and staff. My family returned to Savio's for another family function. Manager Eddie was so helpful and flexible in providing the perfect space for our large party and the fluctuating party size. My family and I are grateful for the warm, caring and light-hearted experience we enjoyed at Savio's. We look forward to dining there again and highly recommend.

This was our first time to Savio's and we gave it a try based upon the majority of good reviews. The staff was very friendly but it seemed like they could definitely use a few more waitresses for a Saturday night, as service was a bit inconsistent. I have to say that everything we ate was delicious - fresh, crispy bread; the lobster bisque and pasta fagioli were wonderful; and the calamari salad could have used a bit more calamari, but it was perfectly cooked and the dressing was superb. Our main complaint was the entrees which arrived lukewarm at best. The flavors and sauces were excellent, but you really should expect the entrée to arrive hot. I'd also say that the specials were overpriced, just over $30 a plate, for this type of restaurant, though the regular menu is quite reasonable. We will definitely go back and give it another try.

We wanted to try a new restaurant for New Year's Eve (12/31/18) which was recommended with very good
reviews (4 & 5 stars) on Open Table. The reservation was made for two couples at 7 pm. Upon arrival, I was surprised to see Savio's uncrowded during prime time for dining. We were escorted to our table and given menus by the hostess. The conversation was lively with our friends, since we had a lot to catch up on. The service, however, was inattentive. After some time our waitress arrived and we placed our orders. The wine, salads, and bread arrived later but when they arrived there was nothing remarkable about the quality or taste of these items. Our entrees included three veal dishes and one seafood/pasta dish. The portions were adequate but the food was bland and average at best. No one order either coffee or dessert, after our entrees.
Later on that night, after our friends dropped us off at our home. My wife and I agreed that we were disappointed in the quality of the food and service Savio's provided. They did nothing to earn a 4 or 5 star review. Having grown up in an Italian American family, I know quality Italian food and go into new restaurants with an open mind. We have no plans to return to Savio's in the future.

An unexpected gem. On the edge of a strip mall, it’s a bit surprising as you walk into this cute and well decorated place. The service was friendly but not lingering; we felt we had our peace. And the food was delicious! I had salmon over tortellini with a saffron cream sauce. So tasty. Portions were very large for the price.

I brought my out-of-town family to this restaurant, after a long day of sightseeing. We were VERY impressed by the menu. There was certainly something for everybody. Our food was impeccable. The only thing that was unfortunate was the staff. I think they may have been upset that we were dining at 10:15, however, who knows? Maybe they just had a long day. I will certainly visit this restaurant in the future.

Don't be fooled by the look from outside the restaurant
Once you step inside you will smell the food that tastes as good or better than the smells
We were a bit worried based on the outside but were all more than happy that we looked past this and stayed for dinner
Give it a try when you are in the area
