Signature Dishes

Sa’Mesa is a unique dining establishment located in Canggu and Seminyak, Bali, that draws inspiration from the Italian family dining experience. The concept revolves around La Nonna Carmela, an Italian grandmother who warmly invites everyone for dinner, including neighbours, friends and even strangers. Sa’Mesa successfully modernises this concept by introducing its Experience Dinner to create a memorable and immersive dining journey.

The heart of Sa’Mesa lies in its shared dining concept, where approximately 18 dishes are served over several courses. Guests from all walks of life come together at one large table, embracing the slow Italian-style of dining. The food is presented along the centre of the table, encouraging interaction and the opportunity for everyone to taste and enjoy each dish. Sa’Mesa’s philosophy is simple yet powerful: “Come as strangers, and leave as friends.” It aims to foster connections and create lasting memories among its patrons.

Sa’Mesa offers a traditional Italian dining experience with a twist. By seating strangers, family and friends together, it breaks down barriers and promotes a sense of togetherness. The sharing concept allows guests to try a variety of unique dishes, further enhancing the experience of bringing people together in an innovative dining format. Sa’Mesa truly believes in the transformative power of food and the ability to forge new friendships through the shared enjoyment of a meal.

Moreover, Sa’Mesa understands the importance of catering to diverse dietary restrictions. The restaurant offers gluten-free pastas and breads, ensuring that those with gluten sensitivities can still savour the flavours of Italian cuisine. Additionally, Sa’Mesa proudly presents a fully reinvented vegan menu, carefully curated to provide satisfying alternatives for those following a plant-based lifestyle. This commitment to accommodating dietary needs ensures that every guest can partake in the Sa’Mesa experience.
