Popped in again for an early supper We had the pasta Limone with a side of broccoli. Others had the rosemary chicken. Pasta Limone is very basic and delicious. Simple and great flavors. Broccoli cooked perfectly. Chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, also excellent.

Saggio is a great place for brunch in the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly and in the summer they have a nice courtyard where you can be seated and enjoy the great weather. Their coffee is delicious and their eggs benedicts are stellar.
