You can not say enough about the lunch and lunch specials you can get @ Sovano Bistro. I love for take out as well (but they skimp on serving for take out) This is always a reliable choice and great location and ambiance for social/business meetings Can enjoy seating inside or outside (weather permitting) Love their Mango Ice Tea (unsweetened)...

My husband and I had been to the Downton Abbey exhibit at Winterthur, and decided on Sovana Bistro for lunch. It had been recommended by two friends, both of whom are "foodies." It was easy to find, has lots of parking available, and is an attractive space with seating both inside and out. We chose a table in the main... More

My husband and I both ordered the trout special and at first it came with the full head and eyes. That may be the trend now, but not for me so they filleted it for me. It was very good, but not 1 vegetable came with it. Just fish on a plate and that was it. All the servers were... More

I have been to Sovana Bistro several times, mostly for dinner but today for lunch and it was lovely. We sat outside in the porch area where we listed to the waterfall in the small pond while enjoying a wonderful lunch. I had the apple, walnut salad and added some grilled chicken and I must say it was one of... More

Found this restaurant close to Longwood Gardens which worked out great since we had a night time fireworks show to attend at the Gardens. Very nice atmosphere and high quality food. Ordered a wonderful cheese plate which was delicious. Fig pizza was also very tasty. We ordered the heirloom tomato salad dish. Was a bit disappointed in the amount of... More

One of my favorite places-not that we come so often. Always greeted with a smile. Be prepared it's always busy in the evening. Love the use of veggies from Pete's produce down 926. Nothing that I've ever had has been just average. Desserts too are incredibly creative and tasty!! Waitstaff explains meals very well-from memory-chef's sample-taste of something picked by... More

We were a table of four. All of us felt the food was bland and not prepared well. It was so loud it was difficult to hear even though we were not in the main bar area. Our service was good but the experience was very disappointing and the food not tasty at all. We did like the fact that... More

Wonderful food but a bit pricey. The outdoor patio is great on a nice day! The service and atmosphere is also excellent.

If you find this hidden gem nestled away in a small shopping center in Kennett Square, pat yourself on the back for several reasons: 1) sophisticated ambiance/decor 2) super-attentive service and finally, 3) value. Normally, I am not a Neuvelle Cuisine fanatic, because of the portion sizes, but this restaurant offer Prix Fixe menus Mon thru Thurs and you won't... More
