This food is so good. Either go early or late, because seating is limited. Bring your own wine and enjoy.

Very small, cozy and romantic 10-15 table Italian resturant. Pros: -food was great and the prices were reasonable. Cons: -slow service, our server was the only server there. We had a party of 5 (2kids) and it seemed like things took forever. Now she was great and very friendly and helped us make our dinner choices but could have maybe... More

Don't trust or believe all the negative comments. This is a one-of-a-kind experience with great food in an intimate dining room. Food was excellent. Service attentive. Highly recommend!!!!!

Tucked away in the same small space since 1993. If crowded it can be noisy, but the food is great and plentiful. Their daily specials looked wonderful, but since it was our first visit we chose from the regular menu. I had a wonderful meat lasagna and my husband the chicken Florentine. We started our experience by sharing a flavorful... More

I have to say.....I've been going to this place for close to 20 years and it still rocks!!! Last Friday night was no exception. We had two house guests visiting us for the week while attending Pioneer school and decided to take them out to dinner on their last night with us. In asking our Latin guests what kind of... More

I don't get to Sutherland Avenue area very often but I'm going to start now! Had lunch here today with a friend and we were blown away with the quality of food! The pan seared grouper sandwich topped with a pesto and balsamic blend was amazing. Homemade potato chips topped it off the VERY reasonably priced lunch. Plan to go... More

Simple as that. I've enjoyed Savelli's for years. Food has always been excellent. If you want great cuisine authentically prepared, enjoy. This is NOT a chain people. It is family owned and operated business. So if the server assumes erroneously everyone at the table is subject to the corkage fee, give Savelli's a break! Savelli's is more focused on quality...

This off the beaten path gem is a must when you have to have great Italian food. Very small boutique restaurant serves home made goodness. It's family owned and operated. The sauces are superb. Portions are generous and it's BYOB. I can personally speak to their lasagna, Pizza. Chicken Picatta, and ravioli-each are excellent. This is where I bring my... More

We had a party of six. The restaurant is small and loud but the service was poor. We never got our salads with dinner. Our desert had 2 large hairs in it. Our ticket (they don't accept credit cards) had extra miscellaneous charges and had to be redone. I ordered decalf coffee and the server at first was reluctant because... More

We are headed to Colorado today from Missouri. It has become a tradition for our family to stop at Savelli's. I have to say its our favorite pizza ever!! I have to be honest and say we haven't tried a lot on the menu because we are addicted to the garlic chicken ranch. It's is heaven for your mouth!!!!
