Truly a gem!This chef-owned neighborhood restaurant will wow you, from the food to the service. We have been there dozens of times, and they are consistently spot-on. Great variety on the menu, wonderful flavors and creative dishes, and extraordinary service will keep you coming back over and over again.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FoodMain dishes were incredible, appetizer selection was so-so. Quite expensive but worth it.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful serviceAfter a miscommunication between our server and the staff, the meal we had asked to be boxed was mistakenly thrown away. Our server promptly told us and said that he had already put in another order of our dish. Five minutes later, we had a fresh plate to take home. Our server was thoughtful, curteous, and engaging.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice taste of ItalyThis is a wonderful little bistro, that at first glance seems very intimate, but has a nice large second floor that allows for larger groups and more diners. The food is excellent and the wine / beer list nicely filled out. I would definitely return!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistentHave dined here many times and the food is always good but a little on the pricey side. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and friendly.
We are always taken on time and never rushed.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Sapori! Every time ILove Sapori! Every time I travel to Chicago I make a point to eat at Sapori. Food is fantastic, huge portions, be careful. Service is always great. Highly recommend.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent food, warm serviceSapori is our go-to spot for reliable Italian dining with a flair in Lincoln Park. The wait staff is knowledgeable and at the ready, but not intrusive. In the large upstairs room, they can set up tables that can accommodate your largish family or friend group. Nice wine list of Italian and California wines. Some of the entrees can get pricey, but they are worth it. Alternatively, you can choose the reasonably-priced, fresh-tasting pastas, which are delicious and range from old favorites to innovative ingredient combinations--and there probably will be enough for you to take home. Very nice bread as well. There's outside seating along Schubert on summer evenings.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!Dinner was wonderful. Atmosphere was perfect. Not too loud where we were screaming to speak to each other. Service was great and we really enjoyed the all around experience!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed this small, cute,Enjoyed this small, cute, restaurant on a stormy spring evening, looking out at the lightening and rain.

It's right down the street from several great blues bars.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a tremendous time.We had a tremendous time.

Amazing Italian food!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLocalGemI love this place. Great for date nite or after work dinner with friends. The mussels are awesome and I especially like the option of tomato or white sauce. I frequent Sapori often a d love everything on the menu. Everyone is great from staff to Chef.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious neighborhood Italian.I love this place. I've eaten here several times now, and everything that I have tasted has been delicious! I would recommend the muscles in white wine sauce as well as the asparagus dish as appetizers. The pasta is all home made and each dish is flavorful and not what you find at every Italian restaurant. The desert is also quite good if you have room, the tirmisu is amazing. The service is good considering how busy the restaurant gets.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThey are definitely doingThey are definitely doing things right here. The staff is knowledgable and engaging, ever willing to make suggestions, and I have yet to be disappointed. The food is fresh, expertly crafted and delicious. Portions are large but not obscene.

The host is awesome.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMlove this placeWe discovered Sapori when we lived in Chicago. Now that we have moved away, we come back every time we visit Chicago.

Bravo!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly Rated, Highly EarnedWonderful ambiance, excellent food, and outstanding service. I love this place. I had one of their seafood pasta dishes--mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops over spaghetti in a very nice red sauce. My three dinner companions also loved their meals, including gnocchi, veal, and salmon. Service was perfect--attentive but not intrusive, and our server matched a wonderful red Italian wine that neatly complemented our dishes. Highly recommend Sapori Trattoria. Will definitely return the next time I visit Chicago.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best pasta in Chicago.The best pasta in Chicago. I dream about the tomato sauce.

Excellent service. Every one there seems to truly want to accommodate the customer.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic and delicious foodThis is a great authentic Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is nice, but it's a tight squeeze (we didn't mind though). There isn't a bar area to sit at while you wait for a table. But once you're seated, you will enjoy the small, intimate setting. Food is delicious and service was good too.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIntreresting restaurant, althoughIntreresting restaurant, although it hás almost no attractives around it besides the food itself.

Their dishes are always delicious and the atmosphere is so cozy. We had the caesar salad and stella salad to start off with - both were huge and you should definitely share if you can agree on one. Our main dishes were the Vitello Portafoglio and the Cappellacci all'Aragosta - loved! We had a nice bottle that we brought from home and they charge a $10 corkage. The bread pudding is also delicious if you manage to save room for dessert!
The staff is always very knowledgeable and well attentive!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGood and wait staff was fineGood and wait staff was fine letting us sit there for an hour or two after dinner.

ServiceWhat a great place. Service was excellent and I had the BEST Zuppa di Pesce Ive ever had in my life (I've ordered it many many places). My dish was literally brimming with seafood and the flavor was off the hook. They serve a large portion so you'll have something to take home. Will definitely return.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSapori Trattoria is an excellentSapori Trattoria is an excellent restaurant. To begin, their martinis are very good. The bartender doesn't overpour at all, which makes for a good drink. I really enjoyed their pasta, as well. This is a great restaurant to go to. Trust me, you will not regret this.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFine PastaFirst time I ever actually commented to my wife that I could taste the fine pasta versus out of a box. Server treated us wonderfully. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE this place!!!Took my boyfriend, his parents and their friends here and they LOVED it! We all did. First timers and everyone said they would definitely be back! The restaurant ambiance is great! Has a warm, inviting appeal that is cozy and energetic! The chef came out and shook everyone's hand after dinner and the staff was all wonderful! Some of the favorite entrees at our table were: Rabbit Ravioli, Lobster Ravioli (2) and Pennette Cardinale! All amazing!!! Huge portions so we were able to share. We also had the mussels app. which was fantastic and fed the 6 of us (with bread) to hold us over til the entrees arrived. GREAT wine too! I can't wait to go back!! Already craving the food :)3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, food andExcellent service, food and atmosphere. I've eaten here at least a dozen times and haven't been let down. The bolognese and lobster ravioli are some of the best I've tasted. Chef Anthony is superb and if you sign up for the mailing address, you'll receive his handwritten invitations to special events and gift certificates!3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Pastas, Friendly PlaceOne of our faves....the homemade lasagna is so tender & delicious; tastes like my Italian Aunts made it! Great ravioli dishes; good chunky minestrone soup & decent wine list. The HM chocolate hazelnut panecotto was amazing! Service is always friendly; warm neighborhood place; main room can get loud when even half full, but everyone's having a good time so you don't mind. We travel 20 miles for a good meal at Sapori. Gotta go back for the spaghetti & meatballs...3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the leading home cookingOne of the leading home cooking Italian resturants north of the loop. Great veal and pasta dishes combined with great service.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat neighborhood ItalianSapori is a great little neighborhood Italian that tries hard to please and succeeds. So much so this latest visit on a Saturday was more than a bit loud and crowded, so its best mid-week. The foood is consistently great, portions generous and there's never a hassle when you asked for anything to be cooked any way.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMStill has that neighborhood feel...We went here on a Friday night before heading down to Kingston Mines for some blues. The menu is expansive, which usually makes me worry about quality. Not a problem. Everything was delicious. The portions are huge, so much that you could eat a meal, take the rest home in a box, and feel a family of four. Not sure why they need to do that, because the quality of the meal was exceptional. It's obvious from the layout that they have expanded by knocking out a wall here and buying up some space there, so the restaurant is now quite large, but they still have that homey feel. Our waiter recognized several regulars, and the owner came out to welcome us as first-time visitors. Nice touches.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
