Made a reservation and they
Made a reservation and they seated us 20 minutes late. Not happy with that, but made up for the wait with a fabulous dinner! Whomever was cooking this night was primo. Sometimes the food is good but not primo. We all had something different...ravioli, sole, rigatoni bolognese, and veal scallopini and all were fabulous and hot right off the fire. Can't say enough good about the food. The noise was at full volume!

I always have a great dining
I always have a great dining experience at Sapore. There are plenty of good italian places in the community, but we find ourselves coming back to this one. I have taken just my wife, my whole family, friends and business colleagues. They do a great job. Both food and service is outstanding.

Food and service were excellent busy Saturday night we were 20min early but no seating till time of the reservation so don't just drop in on the weekend. Dinner for two with wine and a shared desert $100 with tip only drawback is the noise Tiled floors and high ceilings make for a cacophony of sounds

Wonderful Italian pasta. The
Wonderful Italian pasta. The Pasta Rustica was great and the gnocchi light and creamy. Our waiter was very attentive and anxious to help us have a good experience. The only negative... very noisy. A large party was in the back of the restaurant dining. With the high ceilings and small space, the noise made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation.

The two adults shared a pork medallions special and Gnocchi di Patate al Gorgonzola. Both delicious...the pork dish featured succulent cuts of meat, very tender, with a picante sauce; the gnocchi was flavorful with a melt-in-your mouth consistency. The sauce was not overpowering, as gorgonzola sauces can be.
I was impressed with the wine menu. Never in a local Italian denizen venue have I seen such depth in Italian wines, for example, they feature six different wines from Montepulciao D'Abruzzo. This is popular with me, but, nevertheless, we ordered a Cab, "Cabernet Sauvignon Justin (Paso Robles) 2008". Very rich and smooth. Nice oak and a smooth lingering finish.

Dinner with a friend
Went to this place based on reviews with a friend. The food was delicious, the portions huge, and the atmosphere energetic. Spaghetti carbonara was awesome and the waiter attentive but not overbearing. We stayed and talked for an hour after our meal and had a great time. I would definitely go there again.

Everything was going wonderful
Everything was going wonderful until we were leaving the restaurant and was ran down by a waiter that wasn't ours telling us we didn't pay for our meal it made me second guess coming back but the food was good.

Good Food, Good Place
A small place but the food and the service were very good. We had 3 children and their needs were met. We would return there again.

Sapore just keeps improving
Sapore just keeps improving -- from food to service to ambience. The Italian cuisine is, in a word, sublime -- and reasonably priced. Could not give this restaurant any higher rating, but would if possible.

It has been several months since we have been to Sapore. The food has improved, and everything was great.

Fantastico! This restaurant offered 15% of the proceeds to help the San Mateo County Service League on the day of their fundraiser and Kitchen Tour. I always like to support businesses that are generous to non-profits. This was a great discovery in Burlingame. I didn't know the restaurant was even there and probably never would have found it on my own. It is a neighborhood gem ... lively, real Italian, very good food, handmade ravioli, etc. I highly recommend it and will definitely be back often. Buon appetito!

The service was excellent. We felt like we were in Italy. My Italian friend (88-years-young) thought it just might be the best Risotto she's ever had.

Food was great. It was very busy and noisy last night. I usually like to go here because it is cozy and quiet, but the place was very full and busy. Service and food great!

From the minute you walk inyour taste buds go to work. The food was fantastic and the service beyond expectations. We would recommend Sapore to all.

We had to wait a few more minutes than normal to even get water. I think most of the staff is new so that was to be expected. The noise is loud - no music, just bad acoustics.

Good Italian Food
Our party tried the risotto, vongole, seafood soup, pepperoni pizza and rustica. Everybody enjoyed their dishes. Calamari was not very flavorable. Service was attentive but had to ask for water refills twice.

Itlaian Comfort food
This cosy neighborhood restaurant is where we go for Italian food that never disappoints. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.
It's great for families or couples. The only downside is it does get very noisy.

Loved the Fettucini Bolognese sauce. Great service, good people.

Whatever you order at this
Whatever you order at this restaurant. Even the bread at the beginning with that delicious dry tomato spread. You can NEVER go wrong. This place is unbelievably delicious and the service you'll get will make you feel part of their ever growing Italian family.

Great Burlingame establishment
Great Burlingame establishment that is consistently good with friendly service.

My friend and i decided to meet in the middle and that meant somewhere in Burlingame. We decided on Italian and found this little spot on Yelp. This place was great. The waiter was awesome and the food was delicious. The atmosphere was energetic enough to have fun but quiet enough for him and i to catch up. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Very Good Food
Food was delicious but noise level a bit over the top. (Friday night)

This is a great restaurant in every way. I believe I have eaten here four times and one of the things that immediately stood out is the freshly made pasta. Everyone at my table noticed this. This time I had the lentil soup and appreciate the taste immensely. I wanted penne pasta and although it was not on the menu the waiter said he would get the chef to make it and they added excellent tasting sausage. This restaurant is in a great location, has great service, reasonable prices and large portions. Additionally, they have an excellent happy hour and nice wine list.

If you're looking for an Italian restaurant with great food, quick service, and an amazing staff that will go out of their way for you, then look no further. This was the second time visiting Sapore Italiano, and the second time they made it a great experience.
