Wonderful experience dining here! The eggplant dish was delicious, sommelier took his time to explain different types of wines, and the staff was extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend Savona for date night as the ambiance really sets the mood :)

As expected, the food and service were absolutely outstanding at Savona which is what we’ve come to expect. Mark did an awesome job as our server. It’s always great to see Papi, he stopped by a couple of times to check on us which is so like him. I was a little disappointed in that I didn’t get my favor table but it didn’t take away from the evening.

Our table upstairs was way too close to the adjacent tables. My wife was seated on a shared bench seat 2 ft from either side of her neighbors while I was 5 feet away on the other end of the table. It was not a fun experience that we would do again. Brandon was an attentive server. Food was flavorful and colorful. Veal meatballs and artichokes appetizers were good portions. My wife had the eggplant entree which was also a healthy portion. I had the fettuccine scampi. The pasta tasted homemade but the scampi only consisted of 2 regular sized shrimp and scallops. Disappointed. Parking was mandatory valet, but vehicle came right back as we exited the building.

Food quality and quantity left a lot to be desired.
I had the lobster cocktail as an appetizer. It was three bites of lobster with some cocktail sauce. My entree was fettuccine scampi. Due to the differing textures of the pasta, my guess is that the dish had been under the heat lamps for a while. Although the taste was OK, for such a high end restaurant, the quality of the food was disappointing. My wife had the lobster and saffron risotto: Another mediocre result.
A definite positive were our drinks. Excellently prepared and tasty!
We used to love Savona. But even on Valentine’s Day, the experience felt tired. We would rather spend our money at a place that offers more effort.

Hadn’t been there in many years, and decided to give it another try. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Extremely noisy, waited 15 minutes to hand someone a “ticket” to retrieve a leftover?? And, waited 20 minutes for the valet to bring our car - eventually had to tell him to just please give us our keys, which he reluctantly did. Was so unhappy with the experience, I asked that the owner or a manager contact me - they did they next day, but he was so rude, and tried to justify all of the ridiculousness of the dining situation!! Will never go back... there are too many wonderful restaurants on the Main Line, to put up with their nonsense. This is the first time I’ve ever written about any restaurant, but since it was SO bad, I thought others should know.

We were so excited for a fancier date night. We had veal meatballs which were ok but nothing special sauce was better than the meat and calamari which was great. Moving on to the main course we had the rib eye which was nothing better than grocery store steak we cook at home with a ton of char on it also slightly over cooked for medium rare. Finally I had the special which was black truffle fettuccine which had no protein so I added shrimp. Noodles were great and you can tell were fresh made but all that was done with the truffle was slice it and put it on top, there was no cohesion to the dish. For a $220 tab we were super bummed. I can say beverages and service was good, however the waiter did forget our mushroom we had ordered. Noise level was high due to how busy it was so there was a bit of yelling to hear each other. Mainly older business men crowd, and valet only. I’d give it a solid 3 at best. Food was not worth what they were charging.

Service was great, even though they stuck us alone in the corner of the restaurant. Food was good but definitely overpriced for the quality. The octopus was completely charred, the Brussels sprouts were burnt to flakes, the steak was entirely too charred. The fish was good, and the risotto. The dessert wasn’t anything to call home about. The service was prompt and you can tell the staff is trained well, but we probably won’t be back, value is important to us.

Brunch. Limited selection but really well prepared food. Excellent service and a beautiful table.

Try the Chocolate gelato: fudge but surprisingly refreshing and light.

It is the perfect place to celebrate a loved ones birthday. We also had two babies and there were no issues. I expressed having freshly squeezed O.J. instead of concentrate. The restaurant is too expensive not to.

Enjoyed dining at this restaurant last evening. The dining room was elegant, each plate pleasing to the eye and equally delicious and attentive and pleasant staff. Our waiter was Sebastian and we enjoyed his charisma and menu recommendations. Thank you for making my birthday dinner special. We'll definitely dine here again.

We love the food and ambiance at Savona. However, absolutely every single time we go, the service is simply terrible. One of the managers was audibly disgusted with taking care of the customers and asked others around to just take care of things, even if it mean customer dissatisfaction. The manager would not acknowledge our frustration with the service. He kept pouring us more wine but this in no way compensated for the poor service. The food took incredibly long to come out. We were just looking for a fun night out with our son and did not appreciate having to feel anxious and frustrated. Our waitress was thankfully awesome, which was refreshing amidst an otherwise quite nerve wracking experience.

I'm surprised I'm writing this but I wish they had a dress code. The food was terrific and the service solid but it's dismaying to see the family at the next table in sweats and the father wearing a tee shirt and baseball cap (on backwards - the height of douchebaggery). I guess I'm getting stuffy in my old age but I think it's inappropriate for such an establishment. Just my two cents.

Dinner service and food was great.
Pre-dinner bar seemed a bit of a cluster and we could not avoid witnessing some type of argument amongst the staff.
Still a great night and place.

The food was exceptional although the portions were fairly small for how expensive they are. It is right off the main line but secluded and has a very nice ambience. Overall a great experience from the service to the ambience to the quality of food.

We go to Savona several times a year, most recently on New Years Eve. The food is consistently good and the service is excellent. Even given the chaos of the evening, we enjoyed ourselves.

It seems that after a period of decline (pre/post remodel), the restaurant is on its way back to being a fine dining establishment again. Seafood tower was excellent and filets were good - cooked to perfection. Give Savona another try!
