  • "I am a very picky person when it comes to lasagna. I have not had lasagna this good since I moved to Chicago 5 years ago, it was superb. The restaurant was quiet and allowed for a nice early dinner for me and my friend who needed time away from school, studying, and an escape, which was all possible at your lovely establishment."

  • "We've been going to Sapori Trattoria for many years and have always enjoyed our meals. We recently tried a special. I forgot to make the name of the dish. It orecchiette, sausage and greens. We paired it with Insalata Stella. The portions are always generous. We never have room for appetizers or dessert. Some of our favorite entrees are the Milk & Honey Baby Back Ribs and Cappelacci all'Aragosta."

  • "Not much downside risk here, nor breakthrough highs. Expect a solid meal of Midwest-America's version of Italian food. Italian foodies would be very disappointed, but few of us qualify for that description. Nice staff in a crowded environment."

  • "Hadn't been in a while - used to go for $68 dinner for two which was a great deal. Had a Groupon. Food was good with huge portions. But $22-$24 for pasta (nothing else, salad extra) is just too much I think. Lots left to take home, but still...."

  • "Had a wonderful time here and can't wait to go back again! Found them on open table and so glad we did! Mushroom risotto and lasagna were amazing, also the lemon sorbet was beautiful. The closet food we have tasted to our Italy trip. Amazing food and service. Wanted to try 2 different options, waiter offered to give me a side of one to try. Best italian food around!"

Unfortunately I am in low with the pumkin ravioli like pasta with butternut sqash so much that I never try anything else. it is so GOOD!!! The chef truly knows what he is doing. I recommend this place highly. I do not think it will disappoint."

  • "Every time I go back to Sapori I wonder why we are not there even more often. The food is excellent, the wait staff attentive and friendly without being intrusive. I have never been disappointed. The portions are very generous but they are happy to split salads and pasta dishes. Try the avocado crostini as a starter. It is terrific."

From the front it appears to be very small, but don't be misled....there's lots of room for small groups and large groups. I HIGHLY recommend this one! I'll be back....soon!"

  • "The abience and service were great It was quieter at the beginning of an early evening The duck was good but not distinctive My first gnocchi was interesting- and I would recommend it My daughter's pasta with chicken was outstanding The salad and chocolate raspberry cake, surprisingly light were terrific as was the specialty wine, though rather expensive Will go back again and try different entrees Lovely evening in all"

  • "We celebrated our daughter's graduation from DePaul on Saturday night and could not be more pleased. The food was praised all around the table, the service was attentive but not overbearing. I had the Carbonara, a marvelous blend of flavors, my wife had the Gnocci Al Brivido and she raved. I heard the Lobster Ravioli was also fabulous. We had a table of ten, and there was a minimal wait for them to deliver all the meals, to be expected in a dining area where there is no room to set up trays. Plus they customized the menu with a congratulations to the grad! We will definitely be back."

  • "First, they have a very good wine list, and our waiter was quite knowledgeable about it. The food was transporting: perfectly prepared and presented. Delicious. The room is not the most beautiful place one would ever see, but is well kept, not cramped, not unpleasantly noisy, tables well appointed and not lacking in space. This is one of those unexpected places that one may pass by and think: "I'll try that one of these days." We have been going there for a couple of years now and are never disappointed and always handled with courtesy, professionalism and attention."

  • "me and my boyfriend went here for his 18th birthday, they customized our menu to read "happy 18th birthday!" on top, gave us a free slice of tiramisu (which was AMAZING) coming from an all-italian heritage, i felt completely at home. the food and service was perfect. bellisimo!"

  • "In addition to amazing homemade rustic, fabulous Italian food, the atmosphere is charming, quaint and cozy. Reminiscent of charming Little Italy eateries in NY and Boston. No glitz or glamour, just really excellent authentic Italian food. While my husband selected a good old-fashioned favorite carbonara, I chose a delicious pasta dish with roasted cauliflower and rapini. SO GOOD! A fabulous meal topped off with a perfect martini - -it just doesn't get better than this...The restaurant fills up quickly, so make a reservation."

  • "We reserved at Sapori Trattoria at the last minute and just wanted a spot to eat dinner together. Instead, we found a new favorite place in Chicago. The salads were fresh and interesting and everyone in the group remarked on how good the entrees were; the Sea Bass was truly outstanding. Highly recommended!"
