Saraghina is a neighborhood favorite located in Bed-Stuy section of Brooklyn. The restaurant is known more for its pizza, but they offer a variety of pasta dishes as well. The pizzas are the perfect size for one if you’re hungry, but try a few for the table to share. Definitely make sure the capocollo pizza is part of that order!
Saraghina has such a nice vibe for a romantic date, a friendly gathering for brunch or just a spot to have a glass of wine. Everyone I encountered who works there is very friendly and always happy to provide recommendations.
Bonus: The restaurant also has a bakery next door that makes fresh bread, pastries and pastas. It’s open from 8:00 – 19:00 so early enough to stop for a cup of coffee and freshly baked croissant or late enough for a snack to hold you off while waiting for a table.
Your eyes will absolutely be bigger than your stomach here.
