Savona Restaurant

Consistent, creative, high quality dining & seamlessly orchestrated service has been the hallmark of Savona's success for over 12 years. Executive Chef, Andrew Masciangelo, uses his 15 year relationship with local farmers to source the freshest ingredients available. His "farm to table" philosophy involves handling products as few times as possible to capture the natural flavor intensity of each ingredient. Signature dishes include Dover Sole with Capri Lemon & Pignoli, and Salt Crusted Branzino and Shrimp & Scallop "Borsette". Masciangelo's cuisine is supported by world class service maestro'd by Maximilien Grange. Savona has the largest wine cellar in the state of Pennsylvania offering guests over 1,200 selections to choose from. Our Sommelier uses his studied palette, vast wine knowledge & soft approach to heighten each guest's dining experience. We look forward to welcoming you to Savona.

"Excellent sole and special lobster pasta dish
Good wine recommendations from sommelier
Soup was good but amuse bouche cauliflower soup was even better; make that an option

"Casual is defined as "relaxed, unconcerned, laid-back". We returned after two wonderful experiences with their Formal Dining menu, sat at a 4 top in the bar area and ordered from the Casual Dining menu. The food was great, the wine by the glass was very good but quite pricey - there were no lesser priced (red) options, and the pour was not generous. There were a few times we felt the slightest bit rushed, but to their credit, staff took the hint and backed off. We arrived at 5:15 for a 5:30 reservation, were seated right away, and were gone in 75 minutes. A pizza, spaghetti and veal meat balls, 4 drinks, two double espressos and one dessert later, our tab was slightly over $130, before tip. The NY Rye Sour (rocks) was out of this world, and made perfectly. This restaraunt is 5 minutes from our home and could be a "go-to" for elegant yet casual spur of the moment dining if it were not so pricey. We will probably restrict our future visits to formal dining for special occasions."

"Great location...staff was exceptional...valet, hostesses, servers...every staff member greated us personally and was very personable...great inside seating location...had questions about the fine dining menu, which were clearly answered, detailed and described...we were offered the opportunity to view the casual dining menu as an alternative, which we did and even after so, ordered from the fine dining menu and just as presented so as to experience the chef's specific creation...food was exceptional with surprisingly large portions for a fine dining experience...the appetizers, corn chowder sample, entrees, lobster knuckle and desserts were all excetional and much to my surprise, the meal got better and better as it went on and the service level was consistent throughout even back to the valet...AND THEN, AFTER LEAVING A $40 CASH TIP ON A $160 BILL AND WRITING "CASH" ON THE TIP LINE, I CHECKED MY STATEMENT TO LEARN THAT SOMEONE TOOK IT UPON THEMSELVES TO ADD ANOTHER $32 TO MY BILL...AFTER CALLING THEM AND FINALLY RECEIVING A REFUND FOR THE $32, IT WAS CONTINUOUSLY BRUSHED OFF AS AN ERROR WITH NO ONE TAKING RESPONSIBILITY WHAT HAPPENED...good thing I check all my receipts...I suggest everyone else that dines there do so as well...GREAT EVENING TARNISHED...DEFINITELY WILL NOT RETURN...THANKS FOR THAT MEMORY."

"A few of the dishes were truly superb. Others were just good. At half the price, I would return. But given the high price, I expect everything to be superb. The wait staff was good, the ambiance is quiet and private (spacious so you aren't sitting on top of another couple/table). But just not worth the price."

"Very disappointing meal. Salad was so overly salted we had to send it back. Signature sole entree came without a single side. No vegetarian friendly options and was served a roasted cauliflower head again without anything alongside. We've been to Savona before and been delighted. This was a tremendous disappointment. Won't return for a very long time."

"I am sad to admit that one of my favorite, go-to places has really fallen. It could have been that we were there between the holidays, and much of the staff, chefs and food purveyors were off, but the quality was poor. The rolls were awful, the salad bland, the wine list minimized etc. The Dover Sole was still quite good, but the overall experience was a disappointment. I do hope this was simply an "off night" but Savona is off my list until I hear differently."

"We had not been to Savona in years. Wanted to go someplace special for my birthday. The staff was fine, the décor was pretty, but the food just wasn't that good. It is a four dollar sign restaurant and I expected so much more. The menu was limited. We all ordered something different. My duck (which I SHOULD have ordered Medium rare) was tasteless. The compote it was served on needed salt. Won't be going back"

"This restaurant is one of my all time favorites. Beautiful atmosphere, indulgent food and wine, excellent service, fresh roses on the table - just perfect for a fine dining experience. And it's the only restaurant in the Philadelphia area that I am aware of that has Dover sole on the menu prepared to perfection."

"Having frequented Savona many times in the past for client dinners and business meetings in the tasting room, I was more than a little disappointed. A very limited menu and a very pretentious/precious attitude overall. Quite puzzling, actually. Horribly overpriced and overcooked food, too. Really not the delight it once was. They must have lost a lot of former customers by now and I will not return."

"Delicious food and generous portions. Not quite as high end or authentic as promised. Beautiful location and nice atmosphere with many private couples' tables. Waiting staff is professional, courteous, and just snooty enough to make some of the interactions awkward. But all in all, an excellent experience for a special occasion."

"It's all in the expectations, I expected from Savona more; the service was very good, we had a table in a quieter area but the food was disappointing. I had the Branzino which usually is served as a filet or whole. Here I had a half of a very small fish, frankly looked and tasted more like a small trout, served with over sized portion of white beans over grilled greens topped with a nice sauce.
Everything was served nicely but not nearly as interesting or well executed as I had in this class and this price range restaurants.

"I expected Savona to be "special", a gastronomic destination, a fine dining experience. It did not live up to expectations. I'd been to Savona before, several times, but not recently. The specifics: I informed the host by telephone that we had 1) a food allergy (peppers/eggplant) and 2) a milestone birthday. The server didn't know. The captain didn't know. The kitchen was not informed. The person with the allergy was served an appetizer on a bed of peppers; no substitute was offered. No small acknowledgement of the birthday was offered.
We were seated in a tucked away corner of the restaurant. It felt invisible. In spite of the fact that my friend bought TWO bottles of quality champagne, the service was inattentive, unpolished and unimpressive. We had to ask for bread; it was eventually brought, cold and hard. Olive oil was requested. It arrived after a long wait. The Dover Sole ($55) was served cold. A box was requested to take home the surplus. It was left in the kitchen and almost left behind. In year's past, the GM and captains ran a formal, but not stiff, well-trained dining room. At present, they seem to have given up any pretense of being a destination restaurant. The kitchen did a good job. My lamb dish and the other plats principal were well-prepared and presented.
