Fodor's Expert Review Saggio di vino
Saggio's knowledgeable owners and sommelier take both the wine and food to a whole new level with expert pairings. The menu is a mixture of old-world sentimental and new-world innovation. There are 650 wine labels and 60 of them can be bought by the glass. A flute of champagne at the bar is a lovely way to start. Choose from degustation and à la carte menus, changing daily, and check their website for special events. The winter truffle degustation dinner is always a treat. Save room for a final glass of wine with perfectly ripened cheese from the cheese trolley—which (like the wine) is temperature controlled to be at optimum taste. Don't worry about trying to read the long wine list, just put yourself in their hands and enjoy a night to remember.
