First time at restaurant, had reservation & was seated promptly. Tables extremely close & a couple on either side. Seating obviously arranged to maximize space. Music very loud, difficult to have conversation but conducive to eating fast & getting more customers in. Friendly table next to us recommend skipping salads & told us they sent theirs back. Took their advice! Ordered two mains, (roasted chicken & Mezzaluna pasta with mushrooms), & sides that were extra, meal good but definitely not great. When we finished meal we were never given bill to look at, machine brought directly to table to pay. Never had that happen before!!
Coffee was very good!! Also good wine & drink menu to compliment food but was so loud & crowded couldn’t wait to leave.

The food was good but the server sold us too much food. We asked about the amount of food we ordered (was it too much?)and he said it was fine. Two of the dishes were massive, we quickly cancelled one of the other dishes to come and took food home with us. We are robust eaters but we were defeated. A server should be able to advise appropriately. We had not experienced being overwhelmed by a volume of food so it was an unusual situation. Also the person removing the plates from our table was very enthusiastic. Often clearing the plate before we had finished it.

I booked several months ago for our anniversary dinner. I have tried to make a reservation several times before but no luck. Our dining experience was well worth the wait. Exceptional food and service. We let the chef create our 5 course meal and he didn’t disappoint.
We will be back, too bad it will be a bit of a wait...

Food and service were very good. The ambience was well-done “hipster”. Too noisy for an intimate or important conversation. We found that the prices were more than many of our favourites that deliver better or same quality of food/service. I am glad I tried it once but will not go back.

So delicious. The veal chop with crispy proscuitto and tagliatelle was ridiculously tasty and the dandelion ravioli a must have. Also, lets just discuss the 'tiramisu'.... Im always tempted to order it first. Divine.

For all the hype and waiting list to get in- it was disappointing. Server forgot about us- we had empty drink glasses on the table. Enjoyed appetizer but the beef in the pasta was tough. The chop had a squishy texture too. I just felt like the meat wasn't prepared and executed up to its potential. Esp for the price point. The pasta was excellent and the sauce was delicious. I feel like I missed the boat for this restaurant - must have been fantastic when it first opened to get the great reputation it has. Too bad it doesn't deliver now.

Great Italian away from Italy, for those who can tell the difference. Fabulous service and hospitality. Only down side - really loud - which akways annoys me because it is very distracting and having conversations is exhausting when you have to shout, when they devide to turn the music up even louder.

Great food, great server, but the front of house was rude. I'd made a request both online and over the phone for a regular table (not a counter) and I didn't hear back. When we got there, they had a counter table for us. This is fine, but they should have returned my call and let me know that my request couldn't be accommodated, as then I would have changed the reservation. Food and other service was great though!

My girlfriends and I, really enjoyed our meal. The portions are a little smaller, but really tasty. The only really disappointing dish that we encountered was the fish. It lacked flavor, it needed more seasoning. Also, I liked how they changed our plates in between each course.

Friends highly recommended Osteria Savio Volpe for its house made pastas. We came here for an anniversary, and the hostess noted our preferences and notes that we made for our reservation and adjusted their service accordingly which was much appreciated. The menu was very reasonably priced and the pastas were exceptionally delicious! Service was consistent and warm but not obtrusive. Ambiance was lovely, we really enjoyed the decor and aesthetic of the restaurant. This place was good for a casual dinner as well, but we did not feel out of place celebrating a special occasion. I will definitely be coming back.

A cleverly designed restaurant, with an equally charming staff and menu. In fact, the entry door itself served almost as a foreshadow to the actual meal: impressively built, yet welcoming and familiar. The house-special Tortiglioni and Tagliatelle were especially comforting - tastefully hand-made pasta paired with rich, savory sauces. While the waiter who attended to my table was a tad on the overzealous side of up-selling the chef's bespoke dining experience, I do recommend ordering entrees à la carte, with some garlic bread to pair, of course. Come for the hype, stay for the aesthetic (and try to count all the books on the shelf above the kitchen while you're at it)!

We have been trying to dine at Savio’s for a long time , it was well worth the waiting. There was four of us, so we decided to go for the $55 tasting or family style dining. It was perfect. We lost track of how many courses but we were full. They asked about any dietary restrictions and we told them we don’t eat meat as much anymore but fish was fine. The main dish was their halibut steak. It was big, meaty and well cooked. Delicious! At the end we thought we couldn’t eat another bite, but for dessert, two dishes came out. We polished them up. It was perfect. We were saying on the drive home, there was a lot of food tonight but we were not overly stuffed but just comfortable. Well worth the wait.
P.S. the service was excellent as well.
