There is an expectation with Italian restaurants that the experience be one of feeling loved and entertained as well as fed, yet few manage to pull off the feat quite like Fratelli Sarti, who celebrated 25 years in 2017. There's a uniformity of quality across all three branches – the adjoining Bath Street and Wellington Street restaurant and deli-café and the more formal Renfield Street branch, housed in an impressive high-ceilinged wood and marble Victorian banking hall. The Bath Street branch houses an eye-catching collection of Italian decorations, from hanging salamis to shelves laden with wines, while the Wellington Street branch is smaller, with a European timelessness. The à la carte menu – Tuscan/Ligurian in origin and shared by the branches – offers a wide choice of antipasti, pizzas, pastas, salads, mains and desserts – all cooked with good-quality Italian ingredients and executed well. Wines are well selected and reasonably priced, with knowledgeable staff on hand to give advice on matching them to particular dishes.
