Incredible value. Five course menu for 60 dollars! Each dish was perfection. The wine pairings were also excellent. Truly knowledgeable servers too. We will look forward to our next visit. Wish they could do more about the noise.

The food was delicious I just wish the ambiance was better. For a fine dining restaurant the tables were very close together and it was quite noisy

We at at SV last night, for the first time. Its a busy restaurant, with a warm and inviting ambiance. We order Alla Familglia. All of the sides leading up to the main course were flavorful. Here's a few of the starters:
Brussels sprouts Potatoes, prosciutto, salumi, rosemary; Roasted squash, pecan gremolata, orang,- these were a hit will all. Both pasta dishes: lamb & pasta and the Lemon Ravioli with Ricotta were delicious. If you don't like anchovies, you may not enjoy the White anchovy, citrus, celeriac, fennel.

The roast chicken was disappointing as it was not 100% cooked. The grass fed veal chop with prosciutto was perfect. The desserts were delicious. Overall the Alla Familglia for 4 people a good value for the money. The unfortunate part was the glass of Amarone wine that I ordered was oxidized and not from a newly opened bottle. The coffee service was delayed and our coffee was not as hot as it could have been.
Be specific if you want the Veal Chop Bone as a take home, it was nicely braised and I guess it went into the trash at the restaurant.

One of the best dining experiences I have had in Vancouver. Recommendations were well received and greatly appreciated. Food was excellent! Service was fantastic. Kira and all the staff at SV were amazing! Went in for my girlfriends birthday and they had a card for her, and dessert. We had their wine collaboration, which was excellent, and several courses which were all done magnificently. Will definitely recommend and return!

Amazing experience. Our reservation was a little behind, so the staff offered our group a glass of complimentary Prosecco each, and a small appetizer was ready for us at our table once we were sat. The food and wine was spectacular. The seating was very comfortable, and the atmosphere was warm and cozy. I will be back soon.

Excellent experience overall. Dinner was delicious and had a lovely sparkling red to go with it, highly recommend. Each dish was unique and flavourful. Standouts were the porchetta and the ravioli. Seating was cramped, which was the only downside, with another couple right beside us who were very loud/drunk, but the overall noise level of the restaurant is high, with a festive fun vibe, so this wasn’t the biggest deal.

My husband & I had such a wonderful dining experience. Our server was very knowledgable in regards to the wine selections and meals in addition to giving us very attentive service.
Thanks for a great evening. We look forward to returning again soon.

Best value meal in Vancouver. For $60/person, we were done by the 3rd course. It was so much delicious food that we ate the rest when we got home because we were already craving it. Love that it wasn’t a loud restaurant. Great for conversating

It was a little disappointing. The 5 course special was underwhelming and nothing to brag about. The veal chop saved the day. The cold carrots were terrible as well as the first course.

I think you’re better off ordering off the menu versus allowing them to surprise you with the 5 course special. The Cannoli was very disappointing, cream was not fresh and had chunk of bitter orange peal.

May try going back to try menu items not the 5 course special

We were disappointed with the food this time, it was good but not amazing. My meals in the past at SV have been amazing, so I'm not sure if it was just bad luck on our part this time.

I came here on two separate occasions and always had the best experience. The restaurant has a very hip and casual vibe where you feel comfortable and at home. The interior decor is absolutely beautiful with a warm feel, and the lighting is just right enough for you to actually see and enjoy the meal you’re eating. The food served here is very tasty and fresh. The one thing that stood out to us the most was the service. All the servers were absolutely helpful, friendly, and patient, which made you feel welcomed. They were always attentive to us and never made us wait.

If you’re wishing to celebrate an occasion, or to just have dinner, this place will be a great choice to help you have a wonderful experience.

Overall a great experience. Service was wonderful. Waiting over an hour for our reservation was the only downfall and the only reason I’m not super impressed. Again though, service was wonderful and communication regarding the reso before hand was also great.

I felt very rushed through dinner. We were not given enough time to enjoy our cocktails and appetizers before main course arrived, and then felt rushed again out the door.

Just perfect every single time. I come here with my family for every family members birthday and we always do the “let us cook for you” option; it never disappoints. The only feedback I would give is that the wine menu although well chosen, is a bit ambitious. I think the glass size and price are on the steeper side of comparable spots. Overall I couldn’t recommend the Savio Volpe dining experience more - It’s consistently excellent every time!

This was our second time to Savio Volpe and both were fantastic! We prefer to order off the menu rather than do the tasting menu, only because there are so many things we want to try! We ordered 2 salads (from the vegetable section) as well as a starter that blew me away: the farro & squash, the chicory & pork, and the porchetta tonnato -- I'm still thinking about them! Everything else was delicious too and the menu seems to change daily so i won't bother detailing the pastas except to say they all three that we ordered were fantastic!
