I love this coffee shop!! It's my personal favorite in Cambridge. The baristas are always smiling and friendly and they make the best flat white that I've ever had...consistently! The pastries are fantastic and it's wonderful to get your coffee to go and head to the park!

Forget about the coffee, the entertainment is quite something! Staff were having some sort of fall out and kept paying their drama out in the shop. Not very professional. I know they're not very lucky regrading their location, but the outdoor seating is just a disgrace.

What's not to like! Run by Italians it felt Italian and I love it. Coffee is made superbly, the salad was fresh and tasty and there was plenty of it. The cake was a little disappointing but I think that might have been because everything else was so great. I could have stayed for hours. Warm and welcoming and a... More

If you want really good coffee, made with panache then come to Savinos! Very Italian atmosphere with a strong Italian clientele, that probably says something about the coffee. Some nice, freshly baked pastries and tempting paninis and soup too. A great change from the likes of Costabucks.

This place has a really authentic Italian feel. The pastries are amazing, but the coffee is really poor. Very weak, too hot (which has burnt all the crema away). The sandwiches look good but a little on the small side. All in all I was quite disappointed with this place. The staff are really friendly and welcoming, so if you're... More

Savino's is a truly Italian experience. Everything, from the superb Illy coffee, the delicious ciabatta(heated up for you and served with a neat salad, of course), the Gazzetta dello Sport among the papers, the way the handsome Italian waiter chats up the pretty girl in front of you while you wait for your order - all of it reminds you...

I was a regular during my student days and call by whenever I can get back to Cambridge. Beautiful coffee, great vibes, spread of Italian and Anglophone papers, spectacular chocolate croissants, really lovely staff.

Got a tip off from a local. The coffee here is very very good. As good as you can get in Wellignton, New Zealand, or Melbourne Australia, which are the coffee capitals of the world. Will most definitely come back.
