Awarded 3 Stars "EXCELLENT," by The Bergen Record. Voted "BEST OF BERGEN" by (201) Magazine. Savini is a Sophisticated, Award Winning, Northern Italian/Continental Restaurant. Considered one of the most attractive restaurants in Bergen County, food is served at Savini in what was once a colonial home. What remains of the original only contributes to the aesthetics. But it is a positive culinary experience that diners seek and that is what they get at Savini. It excels in the three most significant barometers of a restaurant's health: Food, Service and Atmosphere. The cuisine is Northern Italian/Continental. Specialties cover the gamut – a selection of fresh fish delivered daily, homemade pasta, veal, chicken, steaks and chops. Enjoy coffee, an after-dinner drink and perhaps late night music in the lounge. Our cuisine and menu will please the most discerning palate and is both distinctive and unique.

The special port milenese with broccolirab and cherry petters was a hit again for 2 of our guests. The filet of sole was outstanding. The meals for our other 3 guests were also excellent (2 pasta dishes). Service and ambiance terrific.

Drove 25 minutes to get there based on a friends recommendation. We were celebrating my mothers birthday with a party of ten. They called to confirm thar we were celebrating a birthday because of my open table reservation. I have never seen this but when they handed out our menus their was an insert with the daily specials. They actually customized it to show my mothers name. I have never seen that done before. It was amazing.

The service was outstanding as was the food. Highly recommend it and will definitely be going back.

We had heard good things about Savini but had not been there as we prefer close by Ridgewood and HoHoKus with bring your own options. It was a huge disappointment. The service was ok but our waiter was trying to hard and came off as sarcastic. The appetizers were decent we had escargot and a seafood salad, although the escargot weren't in a puff pastry just around and on top of the puff pastry. Dinner was what the real disappointment was. Filet medallions with gorgonzola appeared to be swimming in what looked more like a brown gravy than a port wine demi glace. The bronzino was average at best. We didn't bother to order dessert. I will say that it is my first and likely only time at Savini. Maybe it was an off night in the kitchen? I'll head back to our byob places where the focus is on the food.

At a fine dining restaurant, you expect the mozzarella with the caprice appetizer to be absolutely fresh, not hard Chunks. Also,, instead of throwing chunks of tomato slices and mozerella, it could have used some balsamic glaze. We ordered Red Snapper and Bronzini, both were over cooked. The snapper was over salted. The pasta was over done. We asked for whiskey with club soda on the side, it was served with the seltzer mixed in. We asked for some biscotti with the coffee, and were asked how many we wanted! It’s not about the quantitY, just the way we were asked. Not our best Italian dining experience.

However, I believe we can always improve, so I will share your thoughts with our team to see how we can enhance our customer experience in the future. Respectfully, Savini Restaurant.
