Restaurants - Darlinghurst, NSW
Sagra at Darlinghurst aim to offer Italian food in Australia like they do in the old country: seasonal, affordable, and fun.
Nigel Ward opened Sagra on 1st October, 2013 with an aim to offer Italian food in Australia like they do in the old country: seasonal, affordable, and fun.
From eating pizza fritta on the back streets of Naples to slaughtering pigs in Piemonte to make salami, Ward trapsed up and down the country, immersing himself in the culture and food traditions that are so hard to discover abroad.
Sagra opened to much critical acclaim, and in its first year since opening was favourably reviewed by Gourmet Traveller, SMH Good Food, The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, The Sun Herald, and received an award for best new casual restaurant in the Timeout Food Awards 2014.
Recently Sagra has also become proud recipients of one chef’s hat in the 2016 SMH Good Food Guide.
The menu changes daily, the wine list frequently, and everything is made by hand and with love, including our own wine. Animals are butchered on site, pasta is rolled out every day and bread is baked on the premises.
We don’t cook with any frills at sagra, and believe the value of each and every dish rests in its simplicity and quality of ingredients, not in the bells and whistles.
