Description: Restaurant Zafferano is the second Italian restaurant opened by the owners of the well-established Restaurant Kariatis in Chania. Beautiful, contemporary design offering both style and comfort, Zafferano opened in 2004 with a refreshingly different menu comprised of premier ingredients from both Crete and Italy. Every dish at Zafferano is prepared completely fresh to order, serving up a delicious selection of fresh pasta, risotto, gourmet oven-baked pizzas, fish and seafood specialities, vegetarian dishes and succulent fresh fillet steaks. Together with the added indulgence of our delicate, gourmet desserts and a wine list featuring both excellent award-winning Greek wines and an extensive choice of great International wines from around the world - we look forward to welcoming you to Zafferano for an evening of delicious indulgence! Opening June 2014...Our fabulous new Sushi Lounge!

“The Best Pizza outside Naples!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2010

If you like wood fired oven pizzas, then Zafferano's pizza is as good as the best pizza in Naples, Italy.

“Fantastic food in elegant surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2009

Zafferano is the sister restaurant of Kariatis in Chania and shares the same fantastic menu. The food is always excellent and the wine list extensive. The surroundings are contemporary and very elegant. The staff are very welcoming and you're always greeted with a smile. When you need an Italian 'fix' there is nowhere better than Zafferano.
