"I really enjoy fish lightly grilled with minimal spice so that you can actually taste the real flavor of the fish. At Dubrovnik this is what you get. The calamari, octopus, dorado and red snapper were delicious and properly prepared. Vegetable sides were just ok. An absolute must is the Posip Croatian white wine which is crisp and fruity and pairs beautifully with your fish. The baklava was light and delicious but there was not too much of it. The service was a little spotty - there was only one server in the restaurant and she was overtaxed. However, the servers were very friendly. We will return."

SAVONA, SCARSDALE is the second location of ZAGAT Top 5 Italian Restaurant, SAVONA, in Philadelphia. Consistent, creative, high quality dining and seamlessly orchestrated service has been the hallmark of SAVONA's success for 15 years. Now, Executive Chef, Andrew Masciangelo, and Chef de Cuisine, David White, offer their soulful regional Italian cooking here in Westchester, New York. Their farm to table philosophy involves handling products as few times as possible to capture the natural flavor intensity of each ingredient. Culinary excellence is supported by a killer wine program featuring an extensive array of wines by the glass created by Fred Dex, Master Sommelier. A 20 foot white marble bar, sexy lighting, dramatic drapery, contemporary leather chairs and thick butcher block tables set the stage for high quality dining. We look forward to welcoming you to SAVONA.

"We've been to Savona many many times and have had good experiences. This time however, we were very disappointed and won't be back for a very long time if ever. My fish portion was maybe 4 oz and the price was ridiculous. My husbands steak was extremely tough. The service was spotty and the tables so close we heard every word of the annoying conversation next to us."

"The restaurant was relatively empty on a Monday for lunch. The service was efficient and the food was ok. There is a two course special for lunch although the offerings on that menu are not so appetizing. Tuna tar tar was a bit fatty and not sushi grade, octopus appetizer was full of giant beans and not so much octopus. Salad was fine and fish was small plus it still had the dark fatty portion on it which when removed took away half the portion."

Roberto Paciullo’s hometown of Salerno is transported to the streets of Manhattan. Zero Otto Nove is the second outpost of his famous restaurants from Arthur Ave. in the Bronx. From the atmosphere to the food, stopping by Zero Otto Nove is taking a quick trip to Italy. The wood-burning brick oven is at the center turning out classics like the Margherita, and Roberto's originals, such as La Riccardo with butternut squash puree, smoked mozzarella, spicy pancetta, and basil. All the pastas are homemade, and all ingredients are brought in from New York's Real Little Italy, Arthur Avenue.

"No the same Italian quality as the Arthur Avenue restaurant. Pizza's were very doughy not crispy at all. Seafood salad was plentiful. Pasta was a bit too al dente to the point of chewy. Rabbit dish ha way too many bones, short ribs were chewy and veal dish just plain boring .Dessert was nothing special."
