good authentic Italian food

As an Italian I am a picky eater specialy on Italian food . Quality, authentic and genuine are the qualities that I think you need to make a good food. So in Savore I found these three qualities in all my dishes. I got burrata imported from Italy. it was amasing. The homemade tagliatelle with ragu with fresh basil simple but cooked al dente. I wanted to try Branzino after I saw in Tony Tantillo show. I loved it was fresh and light. For desset the owner suggested me a Savore version of millefoglie. It made my day. Good job

The food was over priced and mediocre at best. The manager was beyond rude and over charged us by $50 and wouldn't take it off the check. It was unbelievable. I will never, ever go back.

I went to Savore with my boyfriend for lunch. The restaurant was quiet and empty (not that that was a problem.) We had thinly sliced filet mignon with arugula for the appetizer. And boy do they mean thinly sliced! Imagine thin like tissue paper. It was pretty tasteless but the arugula salad made up for it. Our entrees were much better - chicken was cooked to perfection and lasagne was flavorful! For dessert, I had tiramisu, which I think is the best I've ever had! The waitstaff was polite except I didn't get a good vibe from the hostess. She barely smiled. And while we were eating, I could very clearly see her watching us. She would occasionally whisper things to the waiter, look at our table and snicker. To top it off, when she came over to ask if we wanted coffee or tea, I wanted to say "No, thank you" but before I could even finish saying "No th--", she immediately turned her head and walked away! We found that to be extremely impolite. I'm sorry, but a restaurant doesn't have the whole package if your waitstaff isn't as amazing as the food. I don't think I'll go back. I'm a New Yorker and I know that there are Italian restaurants in NYC that are much better than this.

My two daughters (19 and 21) and I went to Savore after a play. The wait-staff was excellent. Our requests were immediately attended to. The food was classic northern Italian, with lovely flavoring and delicious wines recommended by the staff. I'm happy but perplexed that this is not a more popular restaurant. It is not flashy. Perhaps that explains the lack of crowds....This is a great suggestion for any night, to get off the beaten path of NYC Italian cuisine.
