So, last week we had gone to this hidden gem of still rough around the edge area, Bed-stuy in Brooklyn. Sarahgina. Rustic Italian food and great wood firing oven pizza! Superb decor and well priced and focused menu. We know the owners of the place, Edoardo and Massimiliano. Edoardo lives in our neighbor Fort Greene but you must have heard of this feminine clothing line called, Tocca. Yes  Edoardo is the founder and owner of Tocca, and Massimiliano is owner of 2 well known restaurants, Malatesta and Piadina in West village in NY and also lives in Bed-stuy. And Edorado is actually the one in the kitchen!

Apart from who we know and how we know, this place is one of Must check out. The space and setting is light yet rustic and somewhat reminds you those chick upstate farm shop mixed with bit of flea market vibe. Every corner has been used up for smart and great details and storage. The place makes you think  you want to quit whatever you do and want to open a restaurant just one like it. It’s a very cool space.

7-saraghinaI had put only a few images from NYmag .com  But also there’s whole back of the restaurant space with a room dedicated for the wine and communal long table, which definitely gives this restaurant a garage or barn like feel. It’s rustic and cozy but not cutesy.

So the food. It’s very home made feel. The presentation of menu is just great with old type writer typed on easy note book like paper and they are simple and wholesome.  Gael had fresh tagliatelle ( wide hand made pasta) with Ragu. And the Ragu was excellent!  I had a pizza with fresh prosciutto and funghi. The dough was subtle and crunch around the edge and topping were fresh and flavorful. Emi and Beppe had also le Pizze with Burrata (Burrata is a fresh Italian cheese made out of Mozzarella and cream. and it has this amazing soft and creamy texture! Originated in Puglia of Italy)

100% of staffs at Saraghina are handsome and good looking Italians with witty and quick service. The whole experience just brought me back to modern day dinning at small towns of Italy.

We were there at night time but from seeing the photos of NYmag, this place must be so beautiful and light filled to have awesome brunch as well. Go check out this pace before it gets too popular and you need to wait in the line!
