Great service and good presentation. However, the food seems amateur and it’s not significantly different from Tractors, Freshii, or other young Italian restaurants.

The best dish was the chocolate tart at the end.

The food Is good but the service is so poor. I understand this is a popular restaurant and each table only have 2 hours but it’s so annoying and not pleasant that the waitress was keep reminding you they need table back every 15 mins since you sit down. And asked you if you need packed you food when you still have half an hour to enjoy you food. What a experience! Is the restaurant aiming to kick the customers out since you are in their restaurant?

We had a wonderful dinner on BC Day Monday! Pre-COVID, Savio was always very busy and quite noisy so we appreciated the quieter, more relaxed pace. The booth tables and bar seats were all separated with plexiglass. The service was friendly, attentive and unrushed.
The food was excellent as usual and we shared everything family style. For appetizers we had the tuna crudo, the prosciutto with cherries and their signature kale salad. The cherries paired nicely with the prosciutto and came with their excellent focaccia. For the pasta course we had the agnolotti, the Campanelle and the spaghetti intégrale. We enjoyed the lightness of the sauce from the agnolotti dish. The spaghetti intégrale was heavier but it was so tasty - this was our favorite pasta dish! For the main, we had the lamb shank and the half chicken. The chicken was so tender and flavorful: It was the best chicken we’ve had in a long time!Overall, a great eating experience!

Lovely ambience despite necessary Covid precautions. Excellent friendly and attentive service delivering delicious food and beverages. Very comfortable with subtle plexiglass partitions creating cozy “rooms” with bench seating. A wonderful treat to be repeated!!

This restaurant is fantastic and it was truly refreshing how fantastic the service is here. The FOH staff know the menu inside and out and our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing. At one point, I noticed he had cleared a glass without me even noticing. He also called over another staff member and she was superb at walking through the wine options with us once she knew our menu from the kitchen. From our food and our preferences, she made a few recommendations that she allowed us to sample before selecting a bottle. She nailed the pairing, as well as got an option that fit great with our preferences. To top it off, she didn’t come near the top of the menu price - she was truly trying to find us the right wine for us and our food.

My friend and I did the Alla Famiglia menu and it was very filling. We had requested the Pork tonnato and the agnolotti, and the kitchen built the rest of our menu to include the garlic knots, the salanova salad, and the squash. These were all great plates. The agnolotti was a bit too al dente but the flavour was still fantastic. The winner here though was the lamb shank. I am being sincere when I say it is probably the best lamb I have ever had prepared for me - it had phenomenal flavour and was perfectly tender. It was a fantastic way to end the meal.

Definitely recommend. Thanks for the great meal!

This was my second time ever at this restaurant. Both times I've been wowed. Absolutely fantastic service and incredibly delicious food. Weve done the chefs special 5 course meal both times and I'm obsessed how fantastic it's been both times. Definitely one of my favorite places to go now and will continue for as long as I can.

As usual, the meal was amazing, not just the food itself but the experience, ambiance and precious care of preparationof the food, esp loved the halibut, the soft pillows of gnocchi with arrabiata sauce, the brocollini, and all 4 desserts, the pavlova, blueberry cake, chocolate olive oil and salt tarts and cannoli! Amazing!!

Wanted to try this place for a long time and heard great reviews. Glad we came and gave this place a shot! Definitely worth coming. We were with a friend who also wanted to try this place and her birthday was a couple months ago and we couldn’t celebrate because of COVID so we celebrated later! Food was great. We ordered a couple things off each category - from appetizers, salad, mains, and sides. I would definitely recommend the pork and the tuna from the appetizers to start! For mains, we had the lamb and the sirloin steak. Great if you pair it with their wonderful selection of wine! I would definitely come back here again. It’s. a great date spot as well!

The Halibut with dill and charred leeks were definitely the highlight of the night! It was perfectly flaky and every bite was so flavourful. For the two of us, we started off with the Burrata with heirloom tomatoes and basil, and the tomatoes were so refreshing and pairs well with the burrata!

We decided to get two pastas (Spaghetti integrale, duck ragu, oyster mushrooms and the Cavatelli, confit potato, chili, whipped ricotta, lemon), which complemented each other well! The spaghetti was more on the creamier end, while the cavatelli was more tart due to the lemon.

Our server was so kind when we asked them if getting the halibut on top of this was too much for 2, to which she responded “not too crazy, but you can cancel the halibut if you feel too full after the two pastas.”

Getting the halibut, although we were nearing a food coma, was the best choice we made that night! There was another server/host walking around who had such a bright personality and recommended the Elderflower soda, which was so fragrant and perfect for a hot, sunny day!

Overall, everything was outstanding and I’ve already made 2 reservations here for the upcoming months. Better to book it in early (1-2 months in advance) if you want a 7 o’clock seating!

This is one of the top meals I have had so far in 2020. We did the family style dining where the kitchen decided what we were having and every choice they made was perfect. And the quantity of food was just right for four people. The wine choices we left up to the staff as well and their choices were a great complement to the meal. Simply outstanding.

Amazing ! The Foccaccia is made fresh in house , the wine list is long and wonderful. all the dishes taste amazing! The food is so fresh and flavoursome. They have plastic sheets around each booth so you're protected from other diners.
The service is attentive but not intrusive.
I can't wait to return - the desserts are made fresh in house every day and taste rich!

This was our second visit to Salvio Volpe and once again all the dishes we ate - and shared - were outstanding. This is not a budget restaurant by any means, but it is well worth paying a little more for such quality.

Fantastic food, staff, and ambiance as always. Staff knowledgeable on menu items and provided good recommendations. Was sad they didn’t have my favorite beef tartare (due to sourcing issues at the moment). Felt safe with the dining with the Covid implementations (staff PPE’s, sanitizer bottle at each table, spaced accordingly). Had another great time and look forward to returning.
