Just an absolutely wonderful experience. We had a cozy table by the fire and the food was delicious! Salads, red snapper, swordfish, and lemon cake--yum!
This is the first restaurant I've dined-in at in a year, I miss it so much and I'll be coming back soon.

Savio's has been a perennial winner when it comes to great food, great service and good value. They have adapted well to the pandemic and we felt very safe and had a great birthday celebration dinner for two. All of our food was superb: Caesar salad, bouillabaisse soup, garlic bread, rigatoni carbonara, and lasagna all delicious. Wine was very good as well. Treat yourself to consistently good food and service. Support Savio's and their great employees, they're bending over backward to help us all get through the pandemic with a smile.

Very good quality food and excellent service. They were out of some foods (arugula salad) and some wines (chianti), but there were other selections to choose from. Prices are very reasonable

The food and staff were amazing but there was a wedding happening at the time we went and the music they played was extremely loud. Thankfully it didn’t last very long and we were able to enjoy the evening

We went to Savio's for the first time on Saturday night. The restaurant was fairly empty but to be expected during this time when guest are distantly seated. We were greeted immediately and seated at a window table. Although the same server was attending to all tables, service was excellent and extremely friendly. We ordered a Margarita Pizza and tortellini in a cream sauce with prosciutto. Both were excellent as was the caesar salad and the crusty, warm bread. We also each had a glass of the house pinot grigio and the sauvignon which were very tasty.
Savio's definitely feels like its been around a while and welcomes its regulars and new guests warmly.

The food was very good, and the prices were reasonable. Due to this current pandemic it was just my family and another gentleman having lunch when I went. The server was very courteous and friendly, and gave us excellent customer service. He took great measures to keep everything he was handling and serving virusfree. Thanks!

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.
