For various reasons, this property is now closed. Following several restaurant and pub attempts, the Savona became Twisted Root, and became Root 48, and is now closed! Good luck to a new owner. Great location if the right concept can be marketed.

Savona has been reopened as Root 48. ( a play on the fact that it's on Rt. 48/Main St. In Centerville). While its been opened for a while today was my first-ever visit and I'm sorry I waited. Although their current is pretty limited the waitress said they are in the process of expanding it. Don't let that deter you... More

The Savona was a decent restaurant with decent food. But, we were quite disappointed when we visited last week. We are retired so we generally dine during the week at around 6:00. We got seated immediately. But waited for everything thereafter. There were six of us and none of us received what we ordered. Well done instead of rare. Cold... More

We ate at Twisted Root in hopes of finding a restaurant that was as good as it's predicessor-Savona. Despite being owned by the same people, the new restaurant was nothing like as good as the previous establishment. I had to send back a steak that was well-done despite being ordered medium-rare. When the second steak arrived it was even more... More

My husband and I joined our friends who were celebrating a wedding anniversary. This restaurant closed a few months ago after a car crashed into the building causing damage. It recently reopened as Twisted Root. The restaurant feels cozy. I liked the ambience, darker colors and successful noise reduction. I never heard another conversation but ours despite being 3 feet... More

We went on Valentine's Day with a group of 5. We were seated fairly quickly and given our menus and water...after that we waited over 20 minutes before anyone returned. Other tables had their orders taken promptly, including one that was seated well after us. We aren't the types to complain so just joked about it among ourselves! After we... More

Wonderful experience! Group of 8 and they were extremely accommodating, especially since we had two people who are gluten free. Service, food and atmosphere was amazing!

This was the second time we have gone to Savona, and my wife and I and the other couple with us enjoyed the meal very much. I had the special dinner of the night- mahi mahi fish with mash potatoes and green beans with a lobster sauce. My wife had a chicken cheese melt dish which was very tasty. The... More

My husband and I have been to Savona twice, and both times for date night and it was fantastic. The chef is amazing, and the filet mignon was not only delicious but the presentation of the dish was gorgeous. Everything we ordered tasted very fresh and had so much flavor and needed nothing, the balance of flavors was top-top. The... More

My husband and I went here for the first time this past Saturday night to enjoy restaurant week. Typically you have to wait a while for a table during restaurant week, especially when you arrive on a Saturday night at 7:30pm like we did :) We got there and were surprised to see there was only about 4 other tables...
