During a holiday in Europe in 1999, while touring the Italian countryside, its founder Gerry Koutougos discovered a small, secluded family restaurant run by an elderly local woman named Sarpina. Gerry was so overwhelmed by how wonderful Sarpina’s food tasted, that he volunteered to spend 2 weeks working for free as an assistant in Sarpina’s kitchen. There he learnt the secrets of authentic Italian cooking, which are used in Sarpino’s Pizzeria to this day. Sarpino's understands the needs of today's busy families and individuals. Whether you are working late at the office or in-between dropping kids off at sports practice, you should always have the choice of a variety of fresh, healthy, and authentic dishes delivered right to your home or office. At its outlet in Arabian Courtyard, Sarpino's Pizzeria features the freshest ingredients, in time tested authentic recipes, presented in a modern Italian décor for a truly ‘Italian experience’ with an unbeatable taste!
