About Saggio di vino
Saggio di vino combines traditional European fare with a hint of the modern which results in a refined but simple cuisine appreciated by wine enthusiasts.
Saggio’s philosophy is predominated by passion –serving the best food, skilfully prepared using the highest quality ingredients locally sourced.
Established in 1991 by Lisa Scholz and Yommi Pawelke at the corner of Bealey Avenue and Victoria Street the ground breaking dining concept was quickly attracting devoted locals. Today the neighbourhood restaurant is considered an institution and a quintessential Christchurch dining experience.
Lisa and Yommi had to relocate Saggio di vino after the Canterbury earthquakes and are operating since June 2012 from a new building next door to their original site.
As of 2016 Saggio di vino is now owned and operated by the previous owners chef David Napier.
While the restaurant has adopted a contemporary interior the philosophy of the dining concept has remained.
