About Buon Appetito

Opened in 2009 under the name Su Sazzagoni, Buon Appetito came to life after four friends purchased the restaurant just five years later. Always known for its delicious, authentic Sardinian specialties and friendly atmosphere, this Italian and Mediterranean restaurant in London’s South Hackney is setting the bar high for delicious pasta, pizzas and mains. Visit for dine-in or takeaway, seven days a week, and enjoy knowledgeable service and comfort classics as delicious as they are in Sardinia, but conveniently found on Lauriston Road.
