About Sapori Italian Restaurant
Sapori Italian Restaurant began with one simple idea, create a comfortable environment where families can come and enjoy authentic Italian food. Sapori by definition means “Flavors.” Sapori’s concept is to reintroduce simple, flavorful, authentic Italian foods. True Italian food isn’t supposed to be complicated and is often improperly prepared! The Italian culinary experience began at home with family and friends coming together at the table and enjoying natural foods and tradition.
At Sapori, we strive to offer our guests the same experience. You can go anywhere and get a dish of pasta smothered in sauce and cheese but once you experience Italian made better… you will never go back! At Sapori, Chef Salvatore has assembled a menu of fresh flavors with the best ingredients. His classic Italian recipes have been perfected at his own restaurant in Italy and are now being shared with you at Sapori.

Sapori Italian Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

First time at Sapori and we were not disappointed. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Tables for two are situated close to one another, which I am not a fan of... this would be my only complaint. Buffalo Negra cocktail I ordered was different twist on an Old Fashioned somewhat and I thought it was well-crafted. Gnocchi was delicious and the scallops my wife had were large and equally delicious. We will be returning soon.

Don't let the classy chic look of Sapori fool you. When going to a restaurant that has majority of their plates priced over $20 you'd typically expect excellent customer service and delicious food. This place was the complete opposite of either of those. Our waitress had no idea if she was coming or going. With the amount of times we had to ask for refills on our drinks we could have ran to the local store and back ten times and made our own drinks. Mind you, our refills were for $10 Martinis. If the waitress wanted to make a great tip off us she wouldve been all over our table. My husband asked for a coke. I had to remind her 20minutes later that he didnt get his coke, so she ends up looking at him and asks if he still wants a coke...? No ... he changed his mind and isn't thirsty.
She never asked us once how anything was. I told her 3x no shrimp on my salad, I get my salad with shrimp. Again...We had to complain more than five times because our glasses were empty. Our table probably spent close to $500 and we would've been treated better at a Coney Island. The manager had no clue how to rectify the situation, his solution was to buy us a round of drinks. He clearly has no idea how to manage a restaurant other than look good in a suit. Our food took over an hour to come out. Then it took another 30minutes to just get our bill.
This place has no sense of urgency and really doesn't care about their customers. It finally got so bad that the entire experience was comical to us. If you like to spend a lot of money on food that taste like frozen dinners and deal with the slowest snail speed unorganized people then you will love this place. The only person that had his self together was the assistant waiter Michael.if anything, he needs the manager title.

Server was very pleasant, but may have been a bit inexperienced. The restaurant was busy, drinks took a while along with refills/ bread etc. We enjoyed the octopus appetizer and baked Brie appetizer. Greens of the house salad weren't crisp and the plate was warm. Pasta was very under-seasoned, was sent back. Manager touched the table to see how he could help which was appreciated. Overall average experience. I think we could have a much more enjoyable experience here another time.

A nice surprise in a strip mall--I don't think sitting on the patio overlooking the parking lot and the road would have been pleasant. The Bar area was very nice inside though. We sat in the dining room. It took a devil of a long time to get a drink order taken--it was nearly 20 minutes before I had a drink. And I was thirsty.
Service remained slow for the evening. But the food was quite good. Soup and salad come with your entree (that is rare these days). The appetizer, fried calamari, was a bit tough but ok. The entrees were outstanding.
Prices were reasonable--a solid choice in the area.

Sapori's is one of our favorite places, but to be honest our last visit was very disappointing, I reserved (days in advance) a table for 2 for our 11 year anniversary. When we were seated we got sat at a McDonald's style bench next to a couple that basically fingered our food when it arrived. Our waitress was so bad I asked the bus boy if he wanted to take over, she was over 30 minutes to take our order and our glasses stayed empty. Like I said sapori's is by far one of our favorite places and we STILL go there, I just recommend they Ditch the McDonald's style table cus I wasn't happy about the lady sitting next us trying to talk to us about our food as we were trying to eat it.

What a wonderful find right in my neighborhood. The lake perch was cooked to perfection. Great service - even making suggestions for each course of the meal. A "must go" destination for a special evening or just to get a superb meal.

This is our second visit to Sapori. We went for dinner on a Tuesday evening, so it was not real busy and was nice and quiet. The food and service again were excellent. There was only one slight disappointment. I loved the Risotto del Pescatore so much the first time that I ordered it again. This time the sauce was lighter and had more of a tomato flavor. It was still very good, but just not as rich tasting as before. Others in our party also recommend the Drunken Watermelon martini, the Chicken & Artichoke and Pizzaiola dinners.

The food is inconsistent. Ordered the pasta sapori (my fav dish) and it was awful. Too spicy too many peppers no pine nuts. This happens with many entrees, one time they are good the next time yuck The soups are bland It will be a while before I go back

I was really excited about going - we took my 87 year old grandma for her birthday. They set us next to a group of 10+ men who yelled and were so loud we couldn't talk. We had hair in our food, there was moldy packets of butter, waited on refills and it was overpriced for what we got.
Needless to say I won't be back. Hopefully it was just out one time experience

We've been there over 20 times in the last year and the food is fantastic! Everything tastes homemade. The Tortelini soup, The salad with the lemon house dressing is great! The Palomino sauce on Pasta is the best!. Actually everything that my wife and I & Friends ever had there has been great!

Wonderful, tasty, original pasta dishes. Great cocktails and great wine selection. Portions are a bit large; so we split, considering we'd already had appetizer and bread with amogiu. Didn't like the extra $3 charge because of it.

Good service and ambience, did not care for soup ( sparce minestrone) menu, heavily breaded appetizer or my entree( too rich and over salted) . May have to try again , choosing another entree. Have heard mixed reviews from friends.

Sappori is a wonderful fine dining establishment. The food is always fresh and tastes fantastic. We were there with my in laws from out if town. The waiter was so gratuitous as answer all of my mother in laws questions and to listen to her stories of her close friends that are from Italy. She asked some personal questions to him, and he answered with genuine interest.
Wonderful service & food
Found Sapori by way of Yelp as I was looking for a place for my daughter's graduation lunch/dinner. Arrived at 2pm and we had the restaurant to ourselves. Our server was excellent and the food was vibrant and fresh. Definitely recommend. I'm anxious to try them at dinner time.
