In the Stazione Centrale area in 2019 Sagami opened, a famous Japanese catering group that since 1970 has opened over 200 restaurants all over the world thus making it known some typical Nagoya dishes.
Sagami is in fact famous for soba (buckwheat noodles) and udon (wheat noodles) which it receives frozen directly from Japan and which it proposes according to classic recipes.
The restaurant is on two floors and is frequented mainly by people who live in the area and travelers. The place is simple and cozy, the staff polite and attentive.
The menu offers many solutions that include real sets: from the numerous preparations of soba and udon, served both cold and hot with a side dish, to the multiple donburi (also available in mini portions), there are also onigiri, tempura, takoyaki, sashimi and some traditional desserts, such as mochi and dorayaki. Poke has also been added to the menu recently. To drink sake, beer and soft drinks.
Since opening I have been there a few times and my opinion remains unchanged: good if you want to have a quick meal in the area, especially for lunch.
In terms of prices, I can say that it is quite convenient, I recommend staying in the order of the sets mainly because some preparations are better than others. Order soba and udon to make no mistake: the tonkatsu I tried was definitely dry, just as the eel was not among the best tried. In short, the important thing is to opt for the great classics but in general there is nothing that has left me a particular memory or that has made me crazy.
Finally, Sagami also offers a take-away and delivery service.
