Had a one of the best cafe latte's here and the server offered a Gluten free chocolate cake (he did point out it was baked in an oven that also bakes bread) The cake was very tasty and moist was impressed. Will be back !

I've been coming here for nearly 30yrs with family friends my kids and my husband. Cambridge was a very different place then. But Savino is the same. Every single trip to Cambridge I'm here. Food reasonably priced and delicious. Coffee great. Atmosphere friendly. Fantastic!

This is a coffee bar just like in Italy: a busy place with excellent coffee, Italian and British newspapers, and Italian staff that loves to comment the football and F1 action on TV. I'm coming here mostly to have a quick coffee while shopping or...More
