Menu was not clear. Server did not explain the options for ordering. No bread for table in Italian restaurant??? Had to pay $15 for 4 small bread knots. Food nothing to brag about. Not much drink selection. Overall, we are not impressed.

This was one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had in a long time. We came here for my boyfriend’s birthday and there was a birthday card on the table when we arrived. We had the chef’s selection 5 course menu and every dish was outstanding and thoughtfully prepared. The beef carpaccio and the pasta were a couple of the highlights. The service and atmosphere were excellent as well. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back.

Service and atmosphere were nice. Majority of food was served lukewarm which was quite disappointing.
We were dining with our kids, so didn’t want to start sending food back to the kitchen. For the halibut main, I would have expected a fillet piece not a thick steak cut which was rather unappealing .

Our second time here, as memories from my birthday dinner here before were so clear. Didn't disappoint again. If you haven't been here, you are definitely missing out on a great restaurant in Van!

Food was good, social-distancing measures were, well, okay, but none of the wait staff or cooks were wearing gloves, and the cooks were also not masked. For a senior citizen such as myself, it's a concern.

The service and food has always been high class and I have never felt the air of pretention like many other expensive restaurants. I found the dishes best enjoyed with a group sharing rather than just 2 people.

Exceptional value for a fine dining restaurant. We chose the family dinner 5-course option where the server chooses your meals. Everything was delicious and the staff was very friendly and attentive! Highly recommend this place!

Marlow (Marleau)was fantastic. She facilitated a great evening from start to finish by recommending great dishes paired with great wine. We put the evening in her hands and she did not disappoint. 10/10 would recommend and come back. ♥️

Great food and great service! The people are wonderful and explained the menu to us and even laughed with me when I said I was really good at Italian (I'm not). Very knowledgeable about the menu and the food came quickly and was fresh out of the oven, pan, etc. The veggies are grown local, they are delicious and harvested perfectly. Get the chocolate torte, you won't regret it.

The restaurant is super cozy and semi-casual. There is ample seating and a nice open kitchen. The restaurant had taken the proper Covid-19 precautions so we had a great, comfortable dining experience. I celebrated my birthday at the restaurant and they were very accommodating and even brought me a little birthday pavlova at the end, so sweet. Service was helpful and attentive and meatballs and cannolis were a highlight for sure!

When can you ever be disappointed here? I never have with exceptional dining.
An absolutely wonderful culinary feast.
To top it off, Lauren gave us professional service beyond the call of duty.
Savio Volpe is only 5stars in my book.
Thank you for a wonderful evening to celebrate a birthday.

Every time I come to Savio the food takes me away, there service is friendly, easy and professional, and the feel of the place is perfect, down to the 80's music backtracks. Thank you for another fantastic evening.

SV never disappoints. I had chosen all my courses via Instagram prior to arriving and my expectations were definitely met. The duck ragu ... amazing! Lamb shank put us over the top. Love SV and is a family favourite !

Snap pea salad with “Gorgonzola Ranch” dressing had unlisted hot chilli pepper that unexpectedly blasted one person with capsaicin intolerance. Damaged entire meal for her. Even hot for fellow diner who enjoys spicy heat. Strangely, carrot dish that listed chili as one of the ingredients had no discernible chili.

I think the quality of the food at Savio has gone down. My last two meals there have been disappointing. Most recently, I ordered the halibut which was far too salty. It was also disconcerting to see staff wearing plastic gloves, which are less hygienic than frequently washed hands. They were also wearing plastic face shields, instead of masks. These shields do not protect diners from respiratory transmission.

Food and drinks were great! Service was also really good, especially with all the new restrictions and changes required by the Government. They had hand sanitizers at each table as well, which was a nice little addition.
