Food and all was okay. Maybe I expected more based on the reviews. It was just too loud I can barely hear who I was with. The service was great, it just didn’t feel sincere at some point?

The agnolotti with pork, mortadella and chicken in roasting juices and the ravioli were outstanding. I wanted to lick the plates clean. The pea shoots & arugula with a gorgonzola dressing was equally good.

The service is unpretentious, but excellent. Every server who came our way was both friendly and knowledgeable. We had the 5 course meal option and didn't know what was to be served. Every dish proved to be a delight, especially the bison rib-eye steak as the last course. Superb. Our only complaint was the noise level that made conversation difficult at times.

Great service. Our server was casual, and gave us great (honest) suggestions on what to order. We were not disappointed. Beautiful space, too.

Not sure what my expectations were before going to Savio Volpe. I heard it was a good restaurant but it went way beyond what I expected. After enjoying two salads to start I had a feeling that this meal was going to be different. The mains didn't disappoint. The conversation for most of the night was the food. My wife and I kept trying to figure out what the favours were. For the first time in a long time, I wasn't thinking I could make this at home. The skills and finesse in making these dishes is something to experience. After not too long I stopped trying to figure out how they balanced the flavours and just enjoyed the food.

Jana your server did a great good. The best way to sum it up was tasteful serve which is some I really appreciate.

I have never had a bad meal here. Savior Volpe is always #1 when it comes to recommending a fantastic place to dine out, and we consistently book it for special occassions. Splurge on the family-friendly dining menu (alla famiglia) - it's definitely worth it.

Having been to Savio Volpe several times in the past, my family and I were excited to celebrate a couple of birthdays, along with an anniversary. We waited for our table 20 minutes after arriving for our reservation, but the front of house staff were highly apologetic and there quickly with a glass of prosecco for each of us -- and we were offered a complimentary antipasti plate without ever asking once we sat down. What's important here is the gesture, which was much appreciated and very kind. Our servers were warm, highly competent and attentive -- couldn't ask for anything more! A wonderful evening, made better by the staff and outstanding food at Savio Volpe. Many thanks for a terrific evening. We'll be back.

Been there several times and food and service has always been exceptional. Our server was very attentive and accomodating. Some of the menu items have changed a bit which gives us something different to consider each time. Love the communal sharing which allows a big group to try a bit of everything.

The food as usual was excellent and the recommendations from our server fit what we were looking for. Value was good for the quality of food. Will definitely return though reservations are hard to come by. Ambiance was a bit on the loud side and some of the table are very close together so probably not the place to go for an intimate dinner for two, but definitely a place to go to have a good time with good food.

We really enjoyed our evening. We decided to let the waiter surprise us with each course, for the $55 per person menu. The antipasti plate of prosciutto and cheese was excellent; not too salty. The kale salad was very good, but a tiny bit salty, probably due to the cheese. We enjoyed the olives and bread sticks. The pasta with wagu beef was tasty. We were served the half rosemary chicken; white meat is not our favorite, but it was cooked to perfection. We enjoyed the seasonal desserts: pavlova with rhubarb sauce and gelato with fresh strawberries and rhubarb. It was a very fun experience. My husband was celebrating his birthday and we got a card and extra dessert with a candle. Our waiter, Kieran, was very attentive, always checking in to see how things were going. We really liked our little table for 2; a small booth near the bar, a bit out of the way, where we could watch all the goings-on, and we like 80's music, so that was good, too! We would recommend this restaurant to others and look forward to returning.

An attractive room but no consideration given to the acoustics. Extremely loud, very difficult to carry on a conversation without shouting across the table. Stick with the pastas and you will have a good meal. Service is quite attentive.

We came here for our first wedding anniversary, recommended by a friend to try out the blind tasting menu. My hubby is a little picky with food but we went with the blind tasting menu and told them what we don't eat, surprisingly even the picky eater enjoyed the dinner very much! Service was great, they came to check on us to make sure we are enjoying every dish. We were full and thought the price and portion were very reasonable, we even packed some food home!
Beer prices were extremely reasonable, we were surprised and pleased!
We wouldn't say it's a spot for an everyday meal but definitely for special occasions!

Place was definitely on the loud side which made it harder to carry on a meaningful conversation. For family style, the gap between each course was a bit too long. While the meat dishes were good, the pasta and salad were so-so. Service was very good though - we hardly ever had to flag down a server and we had a pleasant service experience. But for the price, there are better restaurants that serve similar food.

Delicious food with LOVELY service - YUM! Savio makes some of the best Italian that I've had - including in Italy! We went this time for my Mom's B-Day and all of us women had a terrific time.
My only complaint about Savio is I can't afford to eat there all the time & it's hard to get in!!
Hand-made pasta is to die for!
