“Proper Italian Coffee”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Top friendly banter, atmos, real italians reading real italian newspapers drinking real coffee, lovely cannoli etc.
The simple question is why would you possibly go to Starbucks or Costa when Savino's is round the corner.
Yes there are smokers outside. I don't smoke but they are outside so what?
When I come to Cambridge I go straight to Savino's for the real thing.
Brilliant.

“the best cappuccino in Cambridge ...”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I have visited all the coffee shops in town. But this place is different, it is authentic.
No doubt, "Savino's" serves the best cappuccino in Cambridge.

“Decent coffee nice drinks”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Not very nice looking from the outside, the frontage is shabby and there are lots of smokers outside. Inside its better and the drinks are nice especially the smoothies. They dont have flat white coffees and the cappucino is okay. Not bad

“Best coffee, best service”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The guys really know their coffee there; it is always of highest quality, along with great service and friendly stuff.
Outdoor seating and very reasonable/cheap prices.
