    I've eaten and written about the food in Italy for over 20 years. Cafe Sapori was as good as an Italian restaurant can be in the States. Wonderfully gracious service, excellent and well-priced wine list, and certainly to be recommended.

    We are happy that we found another very good restaurant in West Palm Beach. There were certain items shown on the open table website that were not on the menu. When we told our waiter he spoke to the chef who made the dish especially for us. The food was very good. What I thought needed improvement was the staff working in the restaurant. Our waiter was professional but very unfriendly. The two men at the door were rude to say the least. On our way out one said goodbye and as I went to speak to tell him how impressed I was that the chef was able to make a special dish for my husband, he turned his back to me and ignored me. I will give this restaurant another try. Perhaps I got these men on a bad night. If they behave in the same manner, I will kiss this restaurant goodbye. Hopefully someone in the restaurant will read this and take the suggestion of having a more welcoming staff. After all, there are plenty of restaurants in the area.

    I just love going to Cafe Sapori. If you want to have a quiet dinner, go early and avoid the lively crowd that gathers nightly after 7:30. Otherwise, enjoy the upbeat atmosphere that lingers way after your last Vin Santo. The service is impeccable, the food is outstanding, the wine list is varied filled with wonderful surprises at quite affordable prices (of course, if you feel like splurging, Cafe Sapori offers a good selection of well known wines from some of the top producers). Treat yourself to a wonderful Veal Ossobucco and a bottle of Santi or Cesari Amarone. You'll be hooked with Cafe Sapori as I am!

    It's one of those places that the "word of mouth" has created an institutio! The service is knowledgeable and pleasant. The food impeccabley prepared. Unlike many places, they have created an environment with appropriate space between tables while maintaining an "upbeat" tempo! The only caveat is, this great restaurant experience comes with with a higher than expected price tag.

    This neighborhood gem has been around for nearly a decade. Their fresh pastas are on par for what you would expect in Italy. So if you've been to Italy and miss the flavors, you can come here for a lot less money. Also, their waiters are all top notch professionals.

    Our daughter gave us a gift certificate for my birthday for this restaurant, the food was really good the table location perfect the ambiance really nice, but the service was terrible, this waiter from the moment that we sat down ignore us, there were table all around us and he took the time to stop and chat with the other customers, he when by us and not even a “how is everything” his helper was more affable than him. This is probably the worst experience that we had in long, long time; an evening that could have been great was ruined by the attitude of this gentleman, I must say that latter on that evening a received a call from the manager and he did apologized for the treatment and inconvenience.

    We were visiting from Naples overnight for a concert and chose this based on other reviews on open table. The extensive choices were wonderful and took recommendation of our waiter who had been there since opening ten years ago. Endive pear insalate, butter sage ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta, pappardelle osso bucco sauce were excellent authentic Italian! Dolce was chocolate cheesecake ricotta with vanilla ice cream was so good! Thi was a classy Italian restaurant with shaply dressed staff. We will definitely return on future concerts!

    Without fail, Cafe Sapori NEVER disappoints. Everyone in our dinner party had something wonderfully different, equally delicious. From salads to meatballs for appetizers, to fresh pasta, Bronzino, and Osso Bucco for dinner, to the fantastic Ricotta cheesecake and Tartufo - every bite was as good and better than the last. Hands down, the best Gem in the Neighborhood.

    Food is the whole point at this restaurant. They also have good wine, not all on the list. We had a great Arneis, suggested by the waiter, not available retail in this country. The food, mainly classic Italian dishes, is well-prepared and the selection good. Emphasis on veal and fish. I don't know about the desserts. The coffee is excellent. The atmosphere is old-fashioned and friendly. When the restaurant is full, there's a moderate amount of noise, but not the ear-splitting din of more "with-it" places. When it's not full it's quiet. Prices are high for the area--entrees in the high thirties--but you get value for your money. We've been there three times, each time with different people, and everyone has liked it. I recommended it.
