About the restaurant

Translated as “butter and sage”, Burro e Salvia comes from chef and founder Gaia Enria, who traded a career in marketing to follow a passion for the food industry. With a childhood spent in Italy and time spent refining the art of pasta making in Modena, she set up the restaurant in 2013.

The small dining room feels somewhere between a casual restaurant and a deli, with big windows letting in plenty of light, a clutch of four-person tables and some counter seating, and a pastificio counter selling the day’s freshly made pasta to take home.

The short, confident menu is classic Italian: antipasti and snacks complement a selection of regularly changing pasta plates and one or two larger mains. The signature dish is the agnolotti cavour, a beef, pork and spinach ragu dressed in the butter and sage that lends the venue its name.

The Infatuation

Like this small Italian restaurant, we’re going to keep this simple. Each day, Burro e Salvia makes delicious hand made pastas that appear on a short menu.

Time Out

At Italian-owned Burro e Salvia young, friendly staff make pasta from scratch behind the counter at the front of this deli/café.
