  • "Joe the owner is a fantastic host. The food is incredible. I rate Italian restaurants by their gnocchi and his is the best I have has anywhere."

  • "We kept seeing our friends at this place via facebook and decided to go. Food was delicious. Waitress was friendly. The chef dropped by to say hello. Great ambience. Small and cozy. As much as we are happy it is family friendly. But couples need a nice place like SAPORI for date nights. This is truly one of that kind of place. Hope they will keep it that way and not go too big - both in space and crowd. Perfect as is."

  • "I had a coupon and took some friends and our dinners were amazing. Two in the party were vegetarians and there were so many items to choose from they were in heaven. The chef went around the restaurant and greeted everybody and answered any questions. Service was quick and very friendly."

  • "My husband and I dined at Sapori on the Saturday after Valentine's Day. The food we ordered was good, but the service and the ambiance was univiting. I believe they were way understaffed, only two servers that we could see. We had to ask for refills on our waters several times and being near the door on a cold February night did not provide for a enjoyable dinner out."

  • "Waited for 20 mins after being seated and never had a waitress. Several walked by and ignored us. Plenty of workers just plain rude. Not well managed. Restaurant needs to improve ventilation system as the smoke and stench of burned bread was heavy. This place is small so the fact of being ignored while several different servers hurried past and made eye contact is not acceptable. We never had water or anything. Other tables had been waiting much longer than us, they finished there bread and water and were finally asked if they wanted any drinks. They were told at least 40 mins for food. I would not waste your time with this place. They couldn't handle a Saturday night crowd that was not very busy."

  • "My husband and I dined at the Sapori Italian Grille on Valentine's Day. The service was fantastic. The owner/chef stopped by our table two times to make sure everything was to our liking. He also made a great recommendation on a bottle of wine. The waitress was very attentive and personable. The food was very good. The pasta tasted homemade. I had a wonderful grilled salmon. My husband had a very flavorful ribeye steak. Dessert was a melt in your mouth brownie with salted carmel drizzled on top and vanilla icecream. Portions are very big and prices very reasonable. We look forward to going back again soon."

  • "Amazing neighborhood gem. We've had every dish on the menu, none should be ignored. Generous portions, tasty, inventive. So friendly that you want to go back again and again."

  • "We are so glad to have this restaurant in our neighborhood. The quality and taste was excellent. I often order Veal entrees in an Italian restaurant and theirs was fantastic. We also appreciate the location in a historic building."

  • "FIrst time there. We all really enjoyed our meals. Our table had steak, sea bass, and two kinds of pasta and there was not a complaint about anything! Nice staff and a cozy atmosphere on a very cold night."

  • "I would recommend the mussels. They were piping hot. Great portion on the veal dishes. We were pleased to meet one of the new owners of the restaurant. Wish them luck!"

  • "We thought the menu selections were good, and prices VERY reasonable. We found the wait staff to be rather scattered and disorganized. We were rather shocked that they had no wine list to offer guests. Even the wines available typed out on a sheet of paper would have done. We thought the food was good, but not outstanding. We feel they have to work out some bugs before this restaurant stands out. We will try it again."

  • "Several months into new ownership and no wine list - nothing. Verbally suggested a few wines. Cheap price points. The one we were recommended was $22. Drinkable-but room temperature red Italian wine. Chef/owner came to visit...nice touch. Seafood dish and pasta too overloaded with olive oil. We wanted to like the place, but found little reason to return. Very long wait for food. Probably understaffed kitchen and floor-waitress was stressed and they had no wait and a table or two open. (We saw one man take his empty bread basket to the kitchen for refill because he was tired of waiting) Maybe in six months they'll have their act together."

  • "Food was very good, generous pours on drinks and staff there was very nice but not very polished, but, clearly this is a newer place with a lot to improve on. Service was quite erratic. We sat for quite some time completely ignored. Finally got a server and eventually a drink order. Same with dinner.....no menu at first until someone noticed. Wondering if someone called off and they were short staffed? I would give them a try again in the hopes that they would get a bit more organized."

  • "What a great new find! A real hands on chef/owner who knows his food. The food is fantastic and the prices are very reasonable. Many choices from a well selected wine list. The people here will work hard to be sure you have a very nice evening. We will be going back soon!"
