Just returned from Cancun and Savio's is no longer there in the hotel zone..its is now called Red Heffer or something like that. Our cab driver took us there and even he didn't know that it was closed. Was sad because we always loved to eat at Savio's.

We have been traveling to Cancun at least a couple of times a year for the last decade. This past year we took my mom who was celebrating her 80th birthday.This restaurant is one of our favorites. Always clean with impeccable service, great food, and excellent wines. The view inside or out is great.

This restaurant has a great location overlooking the lagoon and the multi-level layout is great. It was quiet when my wife and I visited but service was poor, possibly because we had at least 5 waiters. An example: I ordered one fettucini dish and received a different one. My replacement was so salty if proved almost inedible. My wife's dessert... More

This was fabulous foods and I could honestly say the food was as good as the food I have eaten in Italy. The atmosphere was fabulous and great view of the lagoon. Love this place and had a great experience.

We were able to walk in without a reservation for dinner, and get a table with a beautiful view of the bay. The waiters were attentive, and the owner came by to check on us. The food was delicious, I had a salad with the house dressing and the rest of my family had pasta. They offer a regular portion,... More

I go to Cancun for several months every winter and a trip wouldn't be complete without several trips to this restaurant. I try different things every time I am there and can't pick a favourite meal as every thing has always been great. The location over looking the lagoon is fantastic and the service is superb. Will see them again... More

We had dinner here our last night in Cancun. It was fantastic! We walked in with no reservations, got a table right on the water with an excellent view of the lagoon. If it hadn't been a bit cloudy, the sunset would have been amazing. The service was great, food was very good and decently priced and the wine list... More

For the past 15 + years, my wife and I have celebrated our Anniversary Dinner at Savios Bistro - La Dolce Vita. The ambience is fantastic, as is the food, service and price. Sitting on the patio and watching the sunset over the lagoon is unreal. It is by far, our favorite restaurant in Cancun

We've been eating at this restaurant a number of years, from when they were in their former location in Plaza Caracol. Always good, especially the pasta which is homemade. The atmosphere of the current location is intimate as you sit beneath lanterns on tiers of tables overlooking the lagoon. Perfect!
