Summary: Overall horrible experience from beginning to end. Service was unprofessional, unfriendly, and inattentive. None of the staff smiled at us even once. Food was not even as good as Olive Garden and I hate Olive Garden (and any chains, generally.) Nobody ever asked if we wanted drink or water refills - we had to flag someone down when we... More

Just had an enjoyable lunch here sitting outside. The service was great as was the food. Nice not to have music blaring too loudly in the background. Will definitely visit here again before we head back to Australia.

Might be a little out of the way if you're staying in Kingston but well worth the trip to this historic district by the old port. Charming place, had an excellent waiter, the food was very good and plentiful and you can't go wrong with the price - I made the right choice and so should you.

We made a reservation there for Father's Day because the website made the place sound family friendly, and even had a cute picture of a dad and baby with the special menu. Firstly, the pretty young hostess could barely manage a smile when we arrived, and when we asked if they had a children's menu (the kids were hungry and... More

We come to Kingston every year. Last Fall we came to Savona for the first time and loved it. We were not disappointed this time either. If you like a good wine, try the Recchia Amarone. A must if you come to Kingston.

Stopped by at about four o'clock for a glass of wine when we were planning to eat nearby. They graciously let us take an outside table even though we were not dining. Food looked and smelled so great that we changed our plans and decided to eat there. Of course, with no reservation not easy to do, as they were... More

Great lunch specials that are reasonable priced. Food was excellent and garlicky bread very tasty. Our lunch choices included Veal Marsala and rigatoni with sausage. Inside can be a little noisy and outdoor seating available when weather permits. Our waitress seemed a little distracted and did not refill water or pour wine. Appetizer plates were left on the table. Would... More

The food was excellent. I had a very good Caesar salad and an outstanding manicotti. The pasta was very light and the cheese was perfectly seasoned. The tables were well set, not too close together. I would have rated this restaurant excellent except for my treatment when I was seated. I was dining alone and waited over 15 minutes before... More

Savona's Tratoria offers excellent Italian cuisine in a great setting. Located in downtown Kingston NY, Savona's has both indoor and outdoor dining. The outdoor tables allows you an opportunity to experience the waterfront atmosphere (inside can be a bit noisy). The menu is filled the traditional pasta dishes, veal chicken, beef and fish. Portions are good sized, with a nice... More

We have dined at this restaurant numerous times and it has never failed us! Whether we are a party of 2 or 12, the service, meals and price are always great. A bit noisy on a weekend evening, so don't plan on the romantic dinner, but needless to say - still one you will enjoy. Oh...... and the Sangria's are... More
