Sant'Agata de' Goti is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Benevento in the Italian region Campania, located about 35 km northeast of Naples and about 25 km west of Benevento near the Monte Taburno.

The name does not derive from the Gothic domination of Italy (5th-6th centuries), but from the Gascony family De Goth who held it in the 14th century.

Sant'Agata is not far from the ancient Samnite town of Saticula.
