Pretty good food

Joseph, October 16, 2019

We tried Savino's for the first time, and only learned about it because of our Nift gift card. Absolutely loved it and will return. The food was so carefully prepared and the crème caramel dessert was heavenly.

Susan, October 11, 2019

Would love to see more vegetarian options at a restaurant billed as “Mediterranean”... but, the food we had was very tasty with lovely presentation, and the ambiance was very pleasant for a romantic evening!

Lucy, October 6, 2019

Great music

Laura, September 27, 2019

The really liked the intimate atmosphere at Savino's. We had a nice evening + enjoyed each other's company without having to yell above loud music/conversations. I also liked the arrangement of tables along the wall, it felt cozy + private. We split a salad, red trout fish dinner + desert. They were so kind to make substitutions + the fish was brought out on 2 plates with huge portions. Everything was delicious! The chef Tom Cutrone came out to hello, a very nice touch!

Susan, September 24, 2019

The best restaurant experience I've had in the Boston area! Service, ambiance, and food all hit the mark.

Erika, August 31, 2019

It was great but as I said in my email they would not take the nift certificate as it was restaurant week

Deborah, August 19, 2019

Savinos is a beautiful resteraunt, but quite far from where we live (Boston) and out of our price range. The food was delicious and service was fantastic.

Linda, July 19, 2019

My lunch was excellent. The mussels were cooked perfectly in a very tasty broth. Risotto of the day with fresh rare tune was delicious.

Peter, July 19, 2019

We had been to Savino's before and honestly, I wasn't impressed. We went back because of the Nift Gift and the food was REALLY GOOD! I don't know if there's a new chef, but the menu seems different and I was pleasantly surprised to find that we liked it a lot! Thanks!

Rachel, January 30, 2019

Great service and restaurant!

Delicious food, nice quiet environment, friendly service with helpful tips

Marisa, September 23, 2018

Great food, friendly service. We happened to go on a night they were short staffed and in the weeds but they didn’t sacrifice quality of the meal for simply getting it out to the table.

Mitzie, September 15, 2018

We loved it Savino’s, I will definitely go back there again. We’re so excited to have discovered this new restaurant.

Delicious! Good food, good service.

Eric, July 2, 2018

Gorgeous decor, lovely service, and amazingly tasty, beautifully plated food! A real hidden gem. Have brought a number of friends and family members here, and not a single one has ever been anything less than thrilled with the food they ordered. Keep up the great work!

Victoria, June 28, 2018

Savino's was a lovely dining experience, with waitstaff who were very helpful in finding vegetarian choices.

Rhys, June 19, 2018

Delicious and very filling soft-shell crab appetizer as dinner. Yum. Great virgin mary. Cleared my sinuses.

Susan, June 16, 2018

Chef often comes out to talk. Very cool.

Ann, May 21, 2018

Great food and great service. Great place for a fancy night out.

Jeremy, May 12, 2018

Good was fresh with simple ingredients and delicious!

Catarina, May 6, 2018

It was really great to use 25$ discount in the Savinos. I love Nift, but the prices in Savinos a little bit expensive.

Kamila, April 22, 2018

excellent! were able to accomodate us with a small baby, even without reservation

Violetta, April 10, 2018

Good place, wish it had better parking.

Soula, March 20, 2018

It was a lovely restaurant, the food was delicious and the service was really good.

Ellen, March 19, 2018

This is a neighborhood gem -- an upscale but not snobby Mediterranean restaurant near Belmont's Cushing Square. My husband and I both ordered seafood dishes and they were both fresh and delicious. Dessert was a towering chocolate mousse cake. The server was attentive and did a great job of describing the specials and making recommendations. We would definitely love to come back.

Eileen, March 18, 2018

Food was amazing, Larissa was a really wonderful waitress, great experience there.

Joy, February 24, 2018

Our dinner at Savino's in Belmont was lovely in every way. I've only been there twice before, and it's been well over a year since the last time. I was so grateful for this motivation to go again--no idea why I don't go more often! The service was stellar, food was delectable, and the atmosphere was beautiful and cozy, with soft light, candles, and pleasing, modern decor. I especially enjoyed suggestions and descriptions from the maitre d', who helped us feel well-cared for!

Sharon, February 8, 2018

Great service! Welcoming staff! Excellent food!

Vanessa, February 6, 2018

Excellent service! Each dish was delicious and full of beautiful flavor.

Claire, January 28, 2018

The desserts were excellent. Outstanding even. Meal and appetizers were fine, no complaints. Service was very good with the exception that I had to ask for both my soup spoon with the appetizer and a steak knife for my pork chop.

Sheila, January 27, 2018

We enjoyed our meal, but the staff was way overstretched and it took two and a half hours from sitting down to paying our check. Our wait person did what she could and was professional and friendly, offering us a free drink (which we declined since we'd already had one). It was a Saturday night, and our reservations were at 7PM. Apparently they also had a lot of walk-ins so were busier than expected. I would go back, but not at that time or on a busy weekend eve.

Susan, January 21, 2018

Great food and atmosphere

Cheryl, January 14, 2018

Fabulous food and service!

Lori, January 12, 2018

Patty, December 24, 2017

We had a great dinner at Savino's and will be returning!

Elizabeth, December 22, 2017

Always a great meal!

Munya, December 17, 2017

Savinos not only stands out for its delicious and comforting food, but also for its incredible customer service. From the moment we walked through the door until the moment we headed out, we were treated like family. This was my husband’s and my first visit to Savinos, but it will not be our last. What a great find!

Justine, December 13, 2017

The food was pretty good. My food was delicious, but I wanted a little more salt, and my husband's food was good, but also, mostly just OK. I had the monkfish and scallops and my husband had the veal chop. The wait service and food service was perfect.

Gina, December 9, 2017

Food was excellent and loved the ambiance of this restaurant ... two big thumbs up!

Marlene, December 9, 2017

Tasteful decor, nice lighting, linen table cloths, quiet jazz in the background. Food was excellent, with fresh ingredients and attractive presentation. Good wine selection. Service equally good. All fairly priced, not too expensive considering the very pleasant upscale experience.

Andy, December 8, 2017

Delicious food, a nice environment, and great service.

Andrew, December 2, 2017

Loved it - went on a weekday with my husband and had the special - all around great experience

Barbara-Seda, November 23, 2017

Wonderful menu & delicious food.

Katherine, November 15, 2017

Savino's is great. It seems to draw an older crowd (my senior parents are regular diners), but I frankly don't understand that. The food is excellent, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is pleasant. It easily stands up to any of the trendy restaurants my husband and I have tried, most of which promise more than they deliver or are good but overpriced. Savino's is a gem.

Anna, November 5, 2017

surpassed all expectations, 5 star meal and service

Robert, November 4, 2017

Good restaurant, though a bit pricey. Fish didn't seem as fresh as it could be, but polenta was other-worldly and mushroom soup of the day just unique and incredibly flavorful.

Elaine, October 22, 2017

The tapas were fantastic--perfect for sharing and very tasty!

Ashley, October 15, 2017

It was great!

Nathalie, September 22, 2017

Surprisingly good food. We moved to Belmont a year ago, an had heard it was good, but never tried prior to Nift. So glad we went -- it was excellent!

Lauren, January 16, 2017

Delicious food. Liked that the chef came to our table to say hi after our meal.
