An unassuming gem in an Alexandria plaza! It may be easy to drive right by this neighborhood gem, but please don't! The food at Savio's absolutely incredible, with a variety of fresh, authentic Italian dishes. The fireplace makes a cozy, inviting atmosphere, and this has become my new "go-to" spot for an outstanding Italian meal at an incredible value.
The food was okay. Cooked fine, but very bland. The service was fine, as was ambiance, too bad the food was boring.
One of my favorite restaurants. Service is always friendly and attentive, food and wine is always delicious!
I love Savio's. I've been coming here since they opened many years ago. I go here often for the Linquine Agnello, a spicy lamb pasta, and you can't go wrong with a veal dish or rack of lamb, when they have it as a special. lt is the romantic little Italian place you can bring your date, knowing that you will still have money in your budget. Desserts are great, too, but never have room.
The food is great. I have eaten here many times over a number of years. The service is very good. It is one of my favorite places for dining on special occasions.
We had a great meal of stuffed salmon and spinach tortellini with shrimp. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming of my infant. We will be back.
I hadn't been in about a decade and won't return
There was really nothing redeeming after the bread. The service was slow throughout despite being fairly empty on a Sunday evening
5 of us ordered different dishes. The spaghetti with meat sauce for good reviews. The other 4 of us were disappointed with the taste of the food
The food was very good (Italian), nice cozy atmosphere and excellent service.
The food is excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful as well. This is a neighborhood gem!
The servers noticed my friend and I were deep in conversation and ergo let us stay significantly after paying the check!
Food was good but not exceptional. Delivery of food was incredibly slow with only three other couples in the restaurant. This was a kitchen problem as the server was good. Not sure why this was so highly rated.
We had a nice time and most of the food was great. Service was very kind and we thought it odd that the place was so empty. Yes, in a shopping center, and although nice inside, I would strongly suggest some attention to the ceiling panel stains. We had the rigatoni and pizza. Both delicious! The bruschetta and bread basket were mediocre. The tiramisu was just wrong. It tasted like a nutmeg cake was used instead of lady fingers which also overpowered any chance of coffee liqueur or cocoa flavor- the reason to get tiramisu! So overall, great entrees... steering clear of the rest.
The outside of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. However, once inside, you walk into an overly-decorated, almost old-fashioned, restaurant that is comforting in its dated furnishings. I loved the bar, the small tables, the ambiance. Our reservation was for 5pm so the dining areas were almost empty, but you could imagine the wonderful atmosphere that it would have when full. The service was impeccable, not always the case even when business is slow in the afternoon. The food was very good and came out quickly, but not too fast. The carrot cake was to die for. All in all, would definitely recommend this restaurant as a change to the modern, sterile ones cropping up all over. Enjoy the ambiance and the service - they are a dying art.
This place didn't look like much from the outside, but once you're inside it's quite a shocking difference. Great cozy place with awesome decor. I've been missing having a local Italian place since moving to Alexandria, and now I've found what I've been looking for. The service was outstanding and the food was great. We will definitely be back.
Authentic delicious Italian. Hidden gem in the areA!
Nothing wrong at visit. Food, service, ambiance, price was all fine. Nothing to write home about. Fine place for Italian food. But since I only get to go out once a month or less, I probably would not return.
Nice decor, soups tasty but sauces overpowered entrée
Spur of the minute dinner with roomate...we both wanted Italian and they did not disappoint. Will be visiting again as it is only a few minutes away. Excellent veal parm with steamed veggies.
Very authentic Italian food! This is our second time here and we will be back for more!
