Savona review

SG | Sep 29, 2002 12:46 AM

Went for dinner this evening and overall thought it was good but not blow your socks off and contrary to it's name the food and staff are more French than Italian.

Standouts were the foie gras, stuffed zucchini blossoms, tagliatelle, and lobster mousse ravioli ; come to think of it the more interesting items were to be found on the first course.

Entrees favoured seafood vs meats in fact there were only two meat items (filet mignon and lamb) so beware carnivores.

Lots of chocolate items on the rather limited desert menu, I would have preferred a more extensive desert selection of non chocolate items.

Occasional lapses in the service, plates were not cleared in a timely manner after we were done and the waiters seemed like they needed a bit more practice maneuvering around the main dining area without bumping into the tables and chairs.

Enjoyed the nice complimentary items at the start (chilled vichyssoise topped with truffle oil) and end of the meal (tropical fruit meringue, I think.. & petit four)

Anyone been to the $20 wine tasting held on Fridays?
