Whatever happens, have the pasta. Good fresh pasta for under $25 a plate is one of those holy grails of Sydney restaurants, and no one nails it better than this small, sweet Stanley Street newcomer. One of the chief virtues of the menu (apart from the outstanding value) is the way it's always changing, so one day it could be slivers of violetta artichoke in herb-flecked tagliatelle, the next perfectly pliant pappardelle dressed with goat-sausage ragù. Unlike many an Italian restaurant, too, the wheels don't fall off when the main courses roll around, whether you're talking roast chicken with crisp chickpea fritters and greens, or a mighty pork cutlet, juicy and flavoursome paired with salsa rossa and Roman beans. The wine and dessert options are both concise (hello pressed chocolate cake with chestnut ice-cream), but chosen with the kind of personal care that makes Sagra one of the most likeable prospects in town.
