Fantastic as always. The orecchiette was especially flavourful. The Barbera D'Asti smooth and beautiful. Still the best in town.

we were 2 and sat at the bar and it was very enjoyable and quieter than the back tables. We shared the angolota, the 10 Oz steak and veg dish, excellent and filling
We enjoyed soaking up the sauce with hunks of rustic bread. Our water glasses were kept full and while everything was efficient we were never rushed or made to feel that our questions were unwarranted. Keep up the great work !!!

Celebrated my birthday here today, it helps when you let them know in advance! Even received a little birthday card from the restaurant, which was very nice. Super attentive staff from the get go, right from when you make your reservation and all the way to the end of your meal. Also mentioned my partner’s allergies and they made sure that none of those made it to us. This was our fifth time here and everything was fantastic as always, although this time we chose to go alacarte instead of opting for the family style meal as it was just me and my partner. The prosciutto is simply amazing, and if you happen to get the right seats at the bar you get to watch them prepare it right in front of you! The pasta with greens and ricotta is always superb. And the chocolate tarts are the best! Also, they serve great negronis. Savio volpe is my favourite restaurant at the moment 😍

This is our neighbourhood favourite and our go to when we want to celebrate. The pasta dishes are inventive and delicious. We particularly loved the chicken liver sauce we tried last time we dined here. The Farro is aways a winner.

Chose the 5 course Famiglia dinner for two people. Good food. Better ambience. Excellent service. Interesting, tasty dishes but not every dish was worth calling home for. If you are less adventurous and more picky with your food, better choose specific dishes rather than being surprised. Overall, still great food with very good service!

We had a very good meal. However we had to take most of it home. The waiter indicated that the pasta would take a long time and recommended the bread. We got the bread and were eating it, and within 5 minutes the pasta arrived. We would definitely not have got the bread as we anticipated a 20 minute or more wait.
The food was a very good standard. More vegetarian options would be welcome.

Really enjoyed Savio Volpe. The food was as good as I remembered last time and the service prompt and not overbearing. They treated us to a sip of bubbly for making us wait (wasn't too bad, maybe 10 minutes) which was nice. My only complaint is the restaurant is very noisy. It's fine for a table of four. You can raise your voice and lean in and converse with everyone. Would be tough at a table any larger though. Highly recommend this East Van gem.

We ordered the set menu and unfortunately
we all went home hungry

The service was excellent

The food was delicious, just not enough, seems like we got shorted

A real shame

I think they should charge more than $55 a person but then deliver some value

I had heard many good things about Volpe, and overall it did not dissapoint. The personal touch of a birthday card and dessert was lovely, and the food was excellent. However, the restaurant was quite noisy, making it difficult to have an quality conversation with my company. Improving the acoustics within the space would really bring the experience at Volpe to the next level.

The restaurant treated as really well. Our reservation was at 7pm but we weren't seated right way due to customers taking their sweet time on dessert. As we waited, the hostess offered as complimentary sparkling wine. And when we were finally seated, they gave us complimentary bread and meat as starter. Throughout the night our servers were very attentive, kind and patient with our requests. It was my birthday so they gave me a card (nice touch!) and birthday dessert. The food was outstanding. We left the place full and satisfied. This place is definitely one of my favourite restaurants. I can't wait to return. Thank you again, Savio!

My dinner companion and I were seated at a table for 2 along the wall so close to the tables either side of us but we didn't find that a problem at all, we had a great evening of good conversation and excellent food and service. will definitely visit again.

Our second time coming here, and every time we've been blown away by the simplicity and expert flavors of the food. Everything is made very well and presented in a casual dining experience. The servers are friendly and attentive. The interior design is a pleasure to look at with an open kitchen and central bar area, and despite the busy atmosphere it never feels stuffy or crowded. Everything about this restaurant works. :) We will be regular customers!

Thank you for providing the most amazing experience!

It was a good dining experience but the food was vastly overrated. Our dishes were good but not excellent. Service, however, was excellent from the moment we stepped in until the moment we left. Ambiance was also great after sunset. I would come back but only for a quick bite and late at night.

The menu changes every day. We started with the garlic anchovy fondue and ordered two pastas and dessert after that. The fondue was outstanding and really got my appetite going. The flavours in the lamb ragu pasta and the quail, chicken and pork one we got were very strong. It was delicious but we have to mention the portions were super small. Cool, simplistic interior - food was worth the drive.

The food is amazing -- nothing like the specialty meats grilled over wood burning grill anywhere else that I know of! The special touches to recognize a birthday were really a bonus - a birthday card with tke kale salad recipe and pavlova at the end of the meal.

This was our first time at Savio Volpe and we’re excited to try it after hearing positive reviews. Loved the decor and ambiance; it’s elegant but comfortable and the service is excellent. A nice touch was our server immediately decanting the wine we ordered without having to be asked ( a rarity nowadays).
We all had the Chefs Table menu. It’s a generous amount of food for the price. The starters, pastas and desserts were delicious. I would say the only so-so dish was the halibut steak was slightly over grilled - a bit of a disappointment as I love halibut. The second meat dish, roast chicken, was moist, tender and delicious. I would go back when I want an upscale dinner with good food and a great wine list
