My husband and I had our first lunch today at Sovana, as we always go for dinner. It was delicious! He had the turkey BLT and I had the margherita pizza -absolutely fantastic! The server who cleared our plates noticed we loved the breadsticks and she brought us a few "to go"- so thoughtful. I couldn't resist the butterscotch cake... More

My husband and I visited for our third anniversary dinner after touring local gardens. We had worked up quite the appetite with all of the walking we had done. Sovanas did not disappoint. They offered a deal of 3 courses for a flat rate. Definitely the way to go. We both enjoyed appetizers (salad and calamari), fish entrees, and creme... More

Great food and ambience. A lot of wonderful dishes. A bit pricy, though the food is generally worth it. Service could be better.

I absolutely love each opportunity I have to eat at Sovana Bistro. In my opinion, it is a wonderful and unique restaurant. What makes Sovana wonderful is, of course, the menu and the food. The owner and the chefs work hard to ensure both the finest fresh ingredients, and the most creative and continuously updated preparations. Sovana is a "fresh... More

EXCELLENT! No need to say anything more! Food and ambience on par to none. Enjoyed sitting right where you can see the chefs at work. Had a small child with our party and gave him his own pizza dough so he could make his own personal pizza.

Pros: Cute ambience Delicious homemade pasta It ends there... Cons: Service was AWFUL. If I'm paying THAT much for a meal I expect to not wait 25 minutes for a glass of wine which ends up being the wrong wine. We sat at the bar for a pre dinner drink and service was equally bad there. Bartender asked us what... More

The food,service,space is wonderful. One of my favorite restaurants. But, who on earth purchased those uncomfortable chairs. They may look good but they pinch even really thin people. Please change them.

The menu was very limited and not appealing. The spring salad was the worst..........who can ruin a salad? The service was ridiculous.......we waited for over 15 minutes to get our drinks...............do you not carry Tia Maria? The waiter was clueless about what type of alcohol we wanted. It wasn't busy at all for a Tuesday night so I don't understand... More
