Why have we called our restaurant “Sabatini”?

Sabatini was an Italian chef from southern Italy who cooked and lived in the same small town for the whole of his life. He was a strong family man with true values with a passion for cooking great Italian food using the best local produce he could find. Sabatini was immensely proud of his family restaurant which was dedicated to serving the very best Italian food in the area with fantastic service. We aspire to follow in the Sabatini family tradition by delivering you superb traditional authentic Italian dishes cooked & served with the same passion & dedication.

At Sabatini we want you to have an unforgettable experience every time you dine with us. Enjoy fabulous food and fine wines in a beautiful stylish restaurant with great atmosphere whilst being looked after by our professional attentive staff at very affordable prices.
