We live very near this restaurant, which is no longer Savoy, but is indeed called Vinnie's. Italian food. I can't say enough good things about this place. The last time we ate there, the service wasn't as good as usual, but it was still excellent! The pizza fell on the floor when put on that tray on the table, but the hostess or our server immediately took care of this mishap.
In past visits, and with this last one, right when we walk in the door we feel welcomed, enthusiastically welcomed! The place is always busy and we can tell that the people eating here are mostly locals like us, which often means that Vinnie's is doing something right.
The food is simply excellent too. Order anything and you'll love it. But honestly, it's the service that has kept us coming back.
Just to let you know, I don't have any connections of any kind to this restaurant, but just want to see these good people continue to thrive. More restaurants should follow Vinnie's service practices.
If you want Italian food in Asheville, this is the place to go! Their menu features fresh local seasonal dish specials... and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all fantastic! Their warm service and cozy atmosphere have you feel like you've been a part of the "family" forever. They also feature a great selection of wine and local brews.

My husband and I visited Asheville and did the chef's choice menu at Savoy. We got a sashimi appetizer paired with sake, a fish entree with champagne sauce and caviar paired with wine, and a steak entree with port reduction. It was fabulous. This became our favorite restaurant, and the service is awesome too.

If your near Asheville don't miss a chance to enjoy a fabulous meal here. Almost didn't try it beacause of review from gerriandross, I am so glad we did! We were not rushed in any way even though the restaurant was quite busy. Our servers were very knowledgable and unpretentious. The service was acceptional. The food was flavorful as well as beautifully presented. The prices were very resonable for the fantastic food and service.

Savoy touts itself as a ""fine dining"" experience-- but since the servers seem mostly concerned with quick table turnover, it might as well be some burger joint or pizza parlor. It's a shame you're not allowed to enjoy the creative offerings prepared by the talented chef. Savoy staff doesnt seem to realize the pace of the dining experience plays an important role in customer satisfaction. We hadnt quite decided on our entrees when we were informed that ""this table has another reservation on it"" and that ""the hostess was getting concerned"". This was said NOT as we lingered over several cups of coffee at the end of the meal (that's understandable), but just as our appetizers and first glasses of wine were being served! There are lots of great restaurants in Asheville--so unless you enjoy fast food pace at fine dining prices, I would strongly recommend dining elsewhere.

The food was fabulous!! I have tried to imitate our dinner there but without success!! We ate here a couple of years ago, and I would love to plan a trip to Asheville again just for dinner here. Our server was fabulous. We were on our honeymoon and the server made our first married dinner so spectacular. We even saw him on the street and he made a big deal of us being honeymooners!!
GREAT FOOD GREAT PLACE GREAT SERVICE
great drinks too!
