“Nice but Noisy”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Small but cozy restaurant down on the Rondout in Kingston New York. our service was very good, the waitress was attentive. The lunch for the six of us was timely served and the food was very good, but it is nearly impossible to carry on a conversation. If there are more than two tables full of patrons, you cannot hear yourself think. The restaurant has potential but they need to do something about the noise.

“Dependable neighborhood place”
Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

We eat here about once a month, it is very consistently average Italian American fare. The space is very noisy, particularly on weekends and holidays. I wish they would add some sound absorbent materials to lessen the din. But if it's on the empty side, the food will satisfy if you are looking for a quick bite.

“A must place to eat in Kingston”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Great food and great location on the Roundout. Excellent menu which features daily specials, which are truly special. Authentic Italian cuisine is not all that is featured. Meats and fish are also outstanding and you can't find a better drink anywhere in Kingston. The warm garlic bread sticks served with every meal are a signature of Savona's...they are a tasty start !!! The wait staff completes the dinning experience. Friendly and attentive at all times. We love the place and I'm sure you will too.

“Lovely, Charming”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

It was a lovely evening and we sat outdoors, in the vacant spot between two Main Street buildings. What a great idea! They had awesome overhead lights strung here and there, just like an authentic Italian piazza, and the setting was marvelous! The food was wonderful! I have pictures, somewhere!

“Food fine if you could hear yourself think”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We met several friends for an early dinner before a show on Sunday. The food was good. Everyone was pleased with their choices. Service was steady however our waitress was almost devoid of personality. The restaurant was so noisy it was almost impossible to carry on a conversation.
