− SVAGO, Italian for fun… −

We are an Italian kitchen inspired by the recipes handed down from generation to generation.

Memories of making pasta, biscuits and pizza with Nonna (our grandmother). Cooking with Nonna was always fun. And it was simple. It was holding onto the Artisan philosophy of food. Handmade dishes using the freshest ingredients. Ingredients that were allowed to speak for themselves. Whether it was Nonno’s (our grandfather) home grown tomatoes in the pasta sauce or the fresh fish a neighbour caught and gave to Nonna to cook. It all tasted wonderful.

This is the SVAGO way.

Nonna is still around, she visits from time to time to make sure we are staying true to the traditions of Italian cooking. Look out for the neon light that says ‘Nonna is in the kitchen’ - she’s here and there’s something special being made for you to enjoy. It might be pasta or gnocchi. Biscuits or cannoli. But whatever it is, you can bet it’s going to taste fantastic!

Enjoy the food. Enjoy the hospitality and above all else have some fun!


We are passionate about pasta!

We hand make all of our pasta giving you the freshest pasta experience. Using artisan recipes and the traditional method of pasta extrusion through a bronze die, resulting in textured pasta for maximum taste and flavour.

Remember to look out for the neon light that says ‘Nonna is in the kitchen’ - there’s something special being made for you!

We love pizza!

All of our pizza dough is handmade and rested for 48 hours giving you the lightest super tasty sour dough base. We then top it with fresh ingredients and finish it off in our made in Napoli wood oven - giving you the full SVAGO artisan pizza experience.
