Another great meal at this over the top little local restaurant! Quiche and Cubano for us today. Innovative drinks and good servers...especially Freddy!

Sovana was very accommodating to our large group. Food came out quick and was hot. Pizza was wonderful as was the Wild Boar Pappardelle that I had. Service was excellent considering our large party. Everyone in our group liked their food. I would have rated it excellent except I felt it was pricy for the food served. Pasta dish was... More

Our group of 16 had a fabulous dinner at Sovana. They accommodated us at the last minute after our other plans hit a snag - thanks to Linda - and we are very glad the plans changed. The pasta dishes were interesting and tasty, as were the fish and meat dishes, and everyone who had the pizzas raved. The atmosphere... More

Wife had a small piece of salmon. I had the breaded/fried pork (like a schnitzel). No sides came with the meals. We shared a salad. Wife had a diet soda. I had water.....$92. Nothing wrong with the food at all. It's just not special at all. The food would be perfectly acceptable at half the price. Service was fine but... More

This restaurant is not a 5-star gourmet, but it's better than one in my book. The service is just really nice. I like the food. And I especially like the people who eat there. Last night I had an unusually nice experience. Had my family at a large table, including a well-behaved 3 year-old. Our waiter and his entourage were... More

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.

Thank Angel B
