I've lived in the Heights for 11 years, and for the first 9 or so, finding good Italian food was near impossible. Then a miracle happened and Saggio's opened on 181st Street. It is some of the best Italian you'll find in NYC, and the atmosphere is cozy and inviting. The owner is a delight & service is friendly and reliable. Home made pastas are great, and the gluten free pasta is exceptional. Great sized portions and good wine.

Our good friends took us here while we visited from Auatin, Texas and it's some of the best Italian I have had! Shaved Fennel Salad was to die for, and the crunchy bread and olives they bring out are this side of heaven. I'm vegetarian so had a wonderful spicy penne dish but could have other great options. The owner is so kind, service was stellar and the place is cozy and warm, and would be a favorite if I lived here! There are so many great places to eat in Austin but none like this... You lucky people who live up here, go experience it, you don't have nearly as far to travel as I do and I will return!

My wife and I go here regularly for brunch and it is great. The staff is friendly and responsive, the food is consistent and tasty, and the price is very reasonable. I highly recommend it.

Newish to the area I was pleased to find lovely little Italian restaurant in my neighborhood. The food is well portioned and consistently tasty with some unique flair on traditional favorites. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere is intimate and warm. Hard to believe this gem is in Washington Heights On a recent visit my boyfriend and I commented to the owner how much we enjoyed dining here and he sent out a huge piece of tiramisu for us. Not only was it very generous but the most delicious tiramisu I can recall ( and I've traveled all through Italy sampling tiramisu!) Would highly recommend.. If you live in the area and appreciate italian food and excellent atmosphere,Saggio will likely become one of your favorite places to dine! It certainly has mine.

This place is literally some of the best Italian in the city, hands down. Homemade stuff, good prices, great owner and managers, really high-quality stuff made by people who care about it. My wife and I just moved out of the neighborhood, and this is quite honestly the thing we will miss the absolute most. It's stellar.

Loved the food, atmosphere, especially the service. It definitely has the family vibe with some great food!

For Saggio to become a neighborhood mainstay in Wash. Heights is a double-edged sword. The atmosphere is great and the wine list is strong and fairly priced. However, while there are some dishes that are dependably wonderful like the calamari with black squid ink linguine, or the crostini; you'll have your own, and you'll come back for them other, more complicated dishes refuse to mature (the food sometimes has a lumpy, stewy, indifferently spiced quality to it), and specials are a shot in the dark. So Welcome, Saggio. If only the kitchen would get a little better, with stable prices, we'd be in heaven.
