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.

Dinner with friends on a Saturday evening. The appetizers were terrific and three out of 4 dinners were great. I unfortunately ordered a porterhouse veal chop, which was a special for the evening which was approx 2 inches thick. It was supposed to come out cooked medium and after cutting off the outside shell could have been considered uncooked and straight out of the refrigerator. The waiter came buy to see how our meal was going, saw the chop and immediately said he was going to take it back to the kitchen to have it cooked properly. ( I was going to let it pass since I was with friends and did not want to have any issues or complain). By the time it came back, the table was done eating and it still was raw at the bone. I might suggest they keep this off of the menu if they can't get the temperature correct.

Everything else was very good. The desserts were great. The wine was good. We were not rushed by the servers and they were very attentive. I would have to say three out of the four meals were 5 stars. The staff was great. Unfortunately, I am the 4th and would probably not return.
