It's not often that we find such a great restaurant on the water with a great view. The food is excellent and so is the service.

a favorite when I'm in L.A.
I've been here 3 times and have always enjoyed a delicious meal at this restaurant located on Fisherman's Pier in Marina del Rey. The food is always very well prepared and well served. The owner is usually on site and always gracious. This time I had the risotto zafferano with lobster - excellent.

Repeatedly our favorite restaurant in the LA area....we visit several times each year from WA.My husband calls me a food snob,
Who loves a great view, often you have to sacrifice one for another, NOT at Sapori! Owner is very hands on, and supremely accommodating. Gorgeous view, fabulous food and wine....great service....a true gem! And- shockingly reasonable prices, and generous portions. Magnificent find.

It was to be a beautiful warm moonlit night and I was looking for a place to dine with a lady friend where we could talk, have a nice view, good food and be out under the stars.
The staff was attentive and accommodating, the food was good and all made for a very enjoyable evening.
No complants, I would certainly return.

You can count on this place for a good meal and good service.

This the fourth time that I have been to this restaurant and I live in Scottsdale, AZ.
A small but true Italian restaurant that serves good food.

The specials are creative
The specials are creative and fresh. The wine list has choices that pair well with each entrée. Desserts are delicious. The waitstaff meets your needs without being intrusive. My favorite get-away restaurant when I'm flying out of LAX in the evening.

Enjoyable dining experience
Great views, charming deacor, and attentive serice enhance the dining experience while a selective wine list, well-prepared food and an innovative Italina menu make this restaurant on the water a destination for my family and friends. We recently celbrated a family birthday, which could not have been more enjoyable.

The food was very good and
The food was very good and reasonably priced. The wait staff was attentive, and dealt with food allergy needs at the table. Only complaint would be that it is very loud in the restaurant - not a place for a quiet romantic dinner. Otherwise, it was great.

Great setting on the water!
Nice outdoor seating - on the water. Service was very good - responsive and prompt.

Just like Nonna used to make
The food at Sapori was amazing and took me back to my childhood growing up as part of an Italian immigrant family in Brooklyn. The sautéed mussels and clams appetizer in a garlic white wine broth with Tuscany style beans was fabulous and begged for dipping to enjoy every bit of broth. My entrée - super fresh sea bass prepared in a light garlic lemon caper sauce - was extraordinary. For dessert I had the not-to-be-missed Torta Della Nonna, an Italian delight combining rich yet light pastry, delicate custard and toasted pine nuts. It was truly special. The staff also was outstanding. This restaurant is 3 hours from my home but I'll be looking for excuses to get back to Sapori. Thanks for an unforgettable dining experience!

Dinner was very good - freshly
Dinner was very good - freshly prepared and tasty! Service was attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant was on the water but because of the cement wall, you could not easily enjoy the view from the patio.

Best Italian food in L.A.
There is nothing not to like about this awesome restaurant. Been coming to Sapori every trip to L.A. for more than seven years and it has never disappointed. Food is outstanding, wine list is excellent, service is akin to having dinner at a long lost friend or relative's house... if they lived overlooking the beautiful marina. And there is nothing that compares to the zabaglione here for dessert. Try it and you will forever be hooked on Sapori!

Just a little better
Food good - not great - but think it could be just that little bit better if the chef puts more heart into it. Charming hosts and wait staff. Comfortable ambience. Lovely views.

Excellent, attentive service and food. We had an antipasto, salad rustic, lamb ragout risotto special, and sea bass (whole fish) special. Everything was carefully prepared and the fish was cooked to perfection. It was a good choice. A bit more expensive, closer to $$$ than $$, than online menu indicates. The restaurant looks out right on the marina.

Favorite place for special occasion
We go to Sapori for special occasions frequently. Always given a great table with view of the harbor. Service makes it an excellent experience. For example: when our appetizer was bigger than we expected and we had ordered salads too, the waiter suggested he split one salad rather than bringing us two. Very thoughtful!! Always attentive and considerate. We love this place and, since it's kind of hidden, it's seldom crowded.
