Location and contact

We are around here, in the small village of Saggart, sharing with our customers the pleasure of good quality Italian and Mediterranean food. A visit in our cosy restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner will be a delicate drive through the passion and excitement of cooking. Classic Italian and Mediterranean cooking in our place is at its best, providing high quality ingredients cooked extremely simply, and that's it. Mixing different ingredients to each special dish of any so called fine dining restaurant is just a simple and tremendous trip that worth making.

The atmosphere was just as we hoped for intimate dinner but was just as accommodating for small groups. The food was spectacular! Delicious, authentic Italian food. We will definitely visit again next time near Saggart!
