THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Savoia Restaurant Review

: Savoia is a slick addition to the casual Marina neighborhood-dining scene. Luckily, for those who used to come to previous occupant Zinzino for their wood-fired pizza, the ovens have been kept intact and Savoia is turning out some delicious, basic thin-crust pizzas. While you can’t go wrong with the thin-crust Margherita (tomato, basil, mozzarella) or Ripieno Calzone (ham, mushroom, mozzarella), the menu also includes some hearty pasta dishes and meat choices as well. While some dishes may lack the soul of regional Italian cooking, we love the thickly sliced beef carpaccio and the sliced pears wrapped in prosciutto and Mascarpone appetizers. The grilled rib-eye steak topped with Parmesan and arugula is a standout main dish. Although it’s small, there is a pleasant patio out back as well as a nice bar at the front of the restaurant. The wine list does a decent job focusing on red wines from Italy.
