Why we love it

A modern oasis of clean lines, relaxation and standout Italian cuisine, Svago is the sort of gem that - given the opportunity - you'd find excuses to traverse Cardiff to visit again and again.

Despite its quasi-studentville location (straddling the Crwys Road divide between Cathays and Roath), the ethos of simple, delicious food married with genuinely thoughtful service from Michele and her team means that Svago is a choice destination for foodies and food critics alike (some of whom have even been caught licking their plates clean).

Expect some of the best pizza, pasta, risotto and memorable med-kitchen dishes in the area and an overall dining experience that - in keeping with the unmissably iridescent signage atop Svago's frontage - has very much caught the eyes (and enticed the taste buds) of a whole city.
