“Very Good Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Very nice restaurant across from Marriott. Authentic tasting Italian food, good variety and not too expensive. They have lots of space both inside and out and the sunset view is beautiful.

Be sure to get a coupon at your hotel before going. They have gluten free pasta.

“The best view and food in Cancun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We love both Savio's and ladolcevita in Cancun! Savio's has an awesome open tiered patio on the lagoon located in the hotel zone. It's fresh and comfortable, the nighttime view of the city, the sunset and moon are second to none! The food and service is excellent....you will always have the owner, Tim come to your table to make sure everything is perfect. We frequent both restaurants several times each visit to Cancun. It's just quality you can trust.

“Lied to us to get us in the door and food was average.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

On the 23rd May 2013 we were reading the menu located outside this restaurant when one of the waiters approached us. We asked whether the restaurant had aircon and he replied yes, so we went in. There is no aircon and the waiter guided us to the waterfront at the end where apparently there was a nice breeze; there wasn't but there were loads of mosquitos. The food was average and so was the price.

“What more could you want?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Savio's is just a beautiful restaurant on the lagoon, with excellent service, delicious food, and a view to die for! We always try to time our dinner with the amazing sunset! We have been going back every year when we go to Cancun. Savio is such a charming host and goes out of his way to make his customers feel welcome. His staff is top notch but not intrusive. I can't recommend a particular dish because they all are so good. The alligator visiting in the lagoon is always a special treat! Be sure to eat there while you are in Cancun.

“Quality Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had a fantastic meal and wonderful service, the thin crust pizza was amazing! We have been back a number of times. The atmosphere and location are great and enjoyed the extra attention (the owners are so friendly).
