Formerly La Pergola, with new management since April 2015, we decided to have a change of name. Saporito means "tasty" in Italian and reflects our great new menus and unique friendly dining experience. Our food is freshly cooked to order using only the best quality Italian ingredients and locally sourced top quality meats and vegetables. With its relaxed and intimate atmosphere, it is the ideal setting for any occasion, whether it is a romantic meal for two, a dinner with friends or a lively celebration. We can accommodate parties of up to 40 people to suit every budget. Please visit our website for full details.

Visited last night with my husband. Food was excellent. The best fillet steak I have had in a long time. Beautifully cooked with just the right amount of red wine sauce. Service was excellent, staff very friendly. An authentic Italian experience. Would highly recommend.

I first visited La Pergola with friends and family in January 2015. The current owners only took over late last year. I have been back regularly since.

Service is swift, without being rushed and the staff are incredibly helpful in explaining the dishes and recommending suitable wines.... More

I am Italian and one of the most difficult things is to find an authentic restaurant with real Italian food and real Italian pizza. La Pergola has both!! The management is new and they are very sociable and nice. I will definitely go back and recommend it to everybody! True Italian food and style!

It's a while since we visited La Pergola, last time we went (over a year ago) we were a bit disappointed but this time it was back to being an excellent night. The restaurant has been decorated and they now have a pizza oven in the front. We started with some garlic bread the best I've had for a long... More
