Restaurant Manager

Yari Saba was born in Sardinia, Italy and lived on his beloved island until moving to Florida in January 2020.  


After earning a business and economics degree, at 21, Yari purchased and operated a pub in his hometown.  Prior to his move the United States, Yari also spent time working for a 5 star fine-dining restaurant in the historic center of Oristano and at 5-star resorts in the beautiful tourist destination of Costa Smeralda, Sardinia.

Yari arrived in the United States in 2020 and, after a tough year of adjusting to living in a foreign country during the pandemic, he discovered a little taste of home while allowing him live the American dream... Zona Blu.


“Zona Blu is the only restaurant in South Florida where you can enjoy an authentic Sardinian experience—from the food, to the wine, to the decor.  I couldn’t be happier to work in a place that represents my culture and my traditions.  Most importantly, working at Zona Blu makes me feel closer to home.”


Yari started his Zona Blu career as a Server at Zona Blu Weston and he now proudly serves as Restaurant Manager at Zona Blu West Palm Beach where he oversees the day-to-day operations and ensures that our guests leave Zona Blu feeling as though they’ve just been transported to Sardinia.
