Italian
In the 1950's our grandfather, Giacomo, came to live the American Dream. He moved from Saviano, Italy to live in Long Island, New York. He met his wife and started a family, opening their first location in Long Island, New York, named Village Pizza. As business flourished, we moved to a larger location and changed the name to Alfieri Brothers’ Pizzeria. Again, we outgrew the size of the restaurant and relocated to a larger side of the center where we have remained since 1991. ​ The following year, Saverio Alfieri decided to head south and expand the family business by opening a location in North Texas. Since then, Saverio and his two sons, Anthony and Giacomo, have managed to create one of Dallas/Ft. Worth’s best kept secrets. The Alfieri family has and will continue to serve authentic Italian recipes perfected by Grandma Alfieri herself.

First time diners, and we were not let down! Beautiful restaurant, relaxing atmosphere with the dim lights and low music, and family-oriented. The portions were huge! Definitely left with to-go boxes and extremely full stomachs. Taylor was our waitress and was just as awesome. Quick, attentive and sweet. Happy we found your restaurant, and we will be back and spread the word!

We made a reservation for 8:00pm upon arriving we were told that it would still be over an hour wait for a table and that I would receive a text when our table was ready. We never received a text and they closed w/o anyone ever reaching out to us w/ any explanation. I understand they may have been over booked, busy, or God knows what else excuse, but it’s bad business to disregard a reservation and give no explanation. Luckily Pappadeaux got us in immediately and we enjoyed our evening elsewhere.

Made a reservation for 7:30. I arrived on time but we weren’t seated until about 8:30 or so. Multiple people waiting at the bar with me complained of the same problem.

Our “reservation” through OpenTable was worthless. Still took over an hour to be seated. This place seems to be run by teenagers. Will not be back.

The service by Autie and the food prepared by Jack and the team was great. This is one of the only spots I visit to enjoy the mussels which were delicious. Great ambiance with the piano player and attentive staff overall. Always enjoy going to Saviano’s!

Real Italian food prepared by real Italians! Their mozzarella is the REAL thing - it's very stringy when you pull it, as it should be, unlike the pizza places, with their so-called mozzarella.

This is one of the very best Italian food restaurants in DFW if not the very best...

Having eaten at some of the best in NYC I would put it right up there with those restaurants!

Excellent selection and menu and fair prices...

Great place, service is amazing, food was prepared nicely and quickly. Only take back is the noise. The piano was a nice touch at the Bar while waiting.

It's very loud in the dining room the acoustic needs to be address. With that change, I would have given a 5-star rating.

Great family italian, out of the way gem that you need to try. Big menu! Calamari (fresh, not frozen) was the best we’ve had in years. Their red sauce is fantastic. Linguine with clams was outstanding, with both chopped clams and whole shopped clams on top. Veal parm was good, not great, but still fresh and worth the trip!
Also, Sangria was delicious as were other bars drinks.
Great service both at bar & table!!
Don’t miss this one!

I had such an amazing time at Saviano’s. The service was magnificent and was perfect for a date night with my wife. We went on a Friday night and the ambiance was so romantic. Our waitress Debbie was the perfect server and she treated us so well, DEFINITELY will be back.

I used to like it here. The waiter was rude. Didn’t event take everyone’s order. When the food came out 30 mins apart and was still missing a plate, we asked for the manager to help communicate the shortfall. A cool dropped the missing plate 20 mins later. We asked again for the manager, and we were told the cook was the manager. The waiter handed us our bill while we still hadn’t even taken our first bite and we told us that the manager didn’t want to talk to us and we could just pay our bill. Avoid Savianos. It’s not the same. We were even told they do have salads due to Covid. We saw another person eating a salad and asked about it. We were told, we could have one for an up charge. The same salad that they told us we could not have, and it used to be included in the meal price.

What type of restaurant messes up your food and refuses to have a conversation about getting things right? We didn’t want a refund, but we wanted to level set.

Instead we found a great restaurant for less, with way better service in Keller/FW.
