I kind of can’t believe how perfect this restaurant is. Also how the ef is it so quiet in the restaurant when it’s so busy?

Came here for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing ! We had the set menu $60/pp and everything about it was great!
Ivan - our server was the best, so down to earth, treated us like we were friends and just had a great time chatting with him and his service was top notch!

We will defiantly be back! Thanks Ivan for making our anniversary dinner special!!

Our server was so kind and helpful in determining what items could be made vegan for one of our party and the kitchen was very accommodating. Food was amazing, wine was wonderful and service was prompt and attentive. Highly recommend.

Most everything about Savio Volpe is great: food, service, but the noise level is deafening. Some clever noise controls (baffling?) on the walls would help, or something to make it not unpleasant to talk to the people at your table. It's pricey but worth it. We had about $60/person ordering a la carte, but will try the chef's selection for $60/person next time.

Fantastic food and atmosphere. Our waiter Nate made the whole night a extremely memorable one as we left the food & wine selection up to him and his selections were amazing. 100% we been back again and have recommended the restaurant to several family and friends.

Food- limited menu. No seafood (except for one Salmon item), not even a seafood pasta. Food standards are high but quite rich. No salads. Drinks good. Dessert limited to gelato, but was excellent.
Service - the server who served our table wears no smile. I had to say "how are you" when we arrive and she didn't even respond nor thank me (should be the other way around, isn't it?) Throughout she was not rude, but never warm and welcoming. However, there was another guy who were cleaning the table between courses and he was very nice. Just a smile goes a long way. The receptionist (or matre'd) was nice. so I decided "overall service" was well (you can't pinalize the whole team with one odd person) and gave good tip.
Recommend? - I may recommend but based on above comments.

The food was outstanding, same for the service. One of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver. The only downside is that the tables are very close and the noise can be a bit high. Having said that, definitely recommended.

Always having the best time at Savio Volpe !! The FOOD is beyond words, on top of that everyone at the restaurant is fantastic, extremely accommodating and makes great recommendations.

Celebrating two birthdays and got a couple of desserts on the house !! They are not your ordinary frozen chocolate cakes (see pic).

Incredible service and experience. We drove up from Oregon and hit traffic crossing the border from Washington and then again driving into Vancouver. The staff were very understanding when we arrived a little late. We allowed the chef to choose our menu. Food was everything we could have asked for and our server was both attentive and respectful. We could not have asked for a better experience.

More feedback than a review, just want to share that the management handled a mishap very nicely- a small pebble appeared in the mushroom pasta dish I ordered last Thursday. Very professional- a clear mistake- and kindly taken off my bill. Full tip left for server. Will continue to visit Savio Volpe and recommend.

You're dining at a place that really cares about the details when you eat here. A warm, but contemporary design, lively sound, but you can hear each other talk. Food is impeccably prepared with nuanced flavors, fresh produce, perfectly cooked proteins. We chose A La Famiglia and were presented with an array of dishes that were simple, but executed perfectly with excellent flavor profiles. Bagna Cruda, salmon, potatoes with prosciutto, half roast chicken, agnolotti (heaven), plum hazelnut salad, gelatos, chocolate tarte, broccolini. All of it was excellent and more than enough for four. We had the sommelier do a wine pairing and recommend it. Our waiter, Travis, made our evening very special. He knows the menu and "got" us right away. Trust your servers here! The sommelier was informative, expressive and, well, really beautiful. All the servers were knowledgeable and seemed to love their jobs and took pride in the food.

Made us wished we lived in Vancouver. Just visiting from San Francisco. Celebrated my husband's birthday. He's still talking about it. And we'll never forget it. Thank you Savio Volpe! Grazie! Grazie Mille!

Me and my wife both cook in fine dining for the last 10 and 15 years and love going out to some of the top places once/twice a year. We were very disappointed with this experience. 3 of out 5 courses tasted like olive, mint and vinegar and not what the ingredients were supposed to showcase. Our server never offered us drink and brought us the wrong bottle of wine at one point. He obviously didn't know alot either about the food or serving in general. I always like to give places a second chance but I wont this time. Too many problems.

Terrific food especially the porchetta tonno starter. Rather loud space due to hard surfaces and density of diners. Wine list isn’t extensive but pricing was reasonable.

Got a reservation the day before after several previous tries. Had the family style 5 course meal which was fantastic and a great value! The service was not stuffy, but very attentive. A very enjoyable evening! I found it quite noisy, but the atmosphere was charming.
