Great service!! Mediocre food, terrible value. $30 dollars for a chicken breast? 29 for a bowl of pasta? I had a gift card that would be the only reason I would go back to this restaurant.

The "degustation" (Chef's Menu) is a real treat. They just bring food until don't quite explode, taking note of your preferences and anything you'd really like to be served from their menu.

The only downside to the place is the noise level. OpenTable uses "energetic" as a euphemism for TOO LOUD. This was off-putting, but the meal was so good I can forgive that.

Appetizer and salad is excellent. Pasta is good, the wood grill menu is disappointing. Their chocolate tart is a must try, as well as the ice cream. The ice cream flavours is very unique. It is a smaller restaurant, so prepare to be cozy with your companions if it’s 6 or more.

Warm and welcoming service. Arrived half an hour early but they were very accommodating and seated us earlier than our reservation. We came especially for the tiramisu sundae and it did not disappoint!

Our first visit for my birthday last year blew our minds with excellent service and every dish delivered was delicious and exciting. Second visit for our anniversary was pretty good, def not as epic as the first and Our last visit, my birthday again and traveling from Horseshoe Bay to be with you, was very disappointing. Maybe because we were on the 9pm seating...the service wasn't great and most of the food lacked. The best thing we put in our mouths was the side of roasted potatoes(which were amazing!). Had to send back the pasta (too salty and just very bad)..second pasta was much better. Sorry, probably won't return...even tho we have raved about you to many of our friends.

Outstanding customer service from door to table, back to door. Greeted with friendly words and gestures. The hostesses, our server, and staffs that serve us are very corteous. Not to mention, the food which is really well done. Still exceed our expectation for a busy and well reviewed place. The ambience is also very energetic, while still upscale. Thank you!

Was my favourite VANCOUVER restaurant. Food quality has decreased dramatically. We were seated an inch away from two very loud obnoxious women. Our server was excellent but that wasn’t enough to make our experience a memorable one and somewhere we’d go back to again.

We at here at 5:30 on a Friday evening over the summer. Really love the concept of an ever changing menu based on daily availability of fresh, local ingredients. The food for the most part was delicious! The only thing I wasn't a huge fan of was the garlic bread which was super saturated with butter (dripping out at the slightest squeeze!). My husband loved his halibut steak. I thoroughly enjoyed the morel tagliatelle and the tiramisu sunday. Our server was also FANTASTIC!
As for ambiance....the decor and lighting were lovely, but we felt packed in like sardines...unfortunately we were seated next to a rather boisterous couple so it was challenging to focus on our own conversation.
Overall a nice experience, but would have enjoyed it much more if we weren't elbow to elbow with the next table.

I have been to Savio Volpe a number of times and never have I ever had a bad meal. I've always opted to go with the 'let us cook for you' option which is incredible value for money. The dishes are all beautifully presented and brought out in such an order that the flavor profiles alway complement the plate that has come before and will come after. The menu also highlights seasonal vegetables/fruits and so I also appreciate this aspect of the menu as well. If this is your first visit, I would highly recommend going with the 'let us cook for you' menu option to explore what the restaurant as a whole has to offer.

My only gripe is that I find that the wine menu, while diverse in selection, could do with a little more attention. There is only one size available for by the glass, and at 5 oz., the price leans on the more expensive side per ounce. That said, I would like to see wine by the glass expanded to options of 6oz and 9oz glasses, and I would also like to see them priced in accordance with competitor restaurants. Between great appetizers, pastas, and both white/red meats, a 5oz glass falls short, while a bottle would be far too ambitious.

Delicious food and thoughtful, attentive service. We love this restaurant for family celebrations. Our recent visit was to celebrate a special birthday and we were given our first choice table, by the window to keep our toddler entertained. Our server recommended great choices off the menu. We are so happy to have the little gem of a restaurant in our neighbourhood.
