Diner Reviews
  • "Absolutely amazing... Table was ready at the promised time. The wine list was short, but the wine was exceptional. Server was incredibly knowledgeable of the Menu. My wife and I requested and sat outside. The waitress steered us from the Bruschetta to fried Calamari for an appetizer. Generally, I'm not a fan of Calamari - but this was exceptional. The lobster ravioli referenced in other reviews did not disappoint, and might be worth the trip from Indianapolis on its own. The raspberry chocolate cake was a great ending - being rich, but not overly sweet. All in all, a stellar experience."

  • "Took three confirmed Italian pasta foodies and one non Italian food lover, and all four of us found something we loved. The service was wonderful. The only draw back was that we didn't bring a cooler to take all the left over pasta home! Hint: if you are going to reserve a table, ask for one by a window or outside if that is what you prefer."

  • "We stopped at the restaurant before a concert at Wrigley. Great appetizers and food. Huge portions. Great wine list and specialty drinks. There is parking on the street or valet parking available. The restaurant is about one mile from Wrigley field so you can walk off your meal on the way to an event. Service was average and prices were a bit high. But the overall experience was outstanding. Also, the window seats or outdoor section makes for great people watching. This is a very entertaining neighborhood."

  • "Food was disappointing. Waited a long time for food to arrive, too. Waiter was a little obnoxious. But the room is nice, live bass player, and open windows on a nice night."

  • "Made reservations here because it was relatively close to Briar Street Theater. Since my wife and I love Italian we thought this would be perfect. We were not disappointed. Food was great! We will come back."

  • "This place was a major disappointment. Our server, Andy, was awful. He started off alright, but then he led us to believe that our salads were part of our entree, instead they were $16 dollars each. After placing our food order, we asked for a second glass of wine. We would not see him again for 45 minutes. Other parties in our section were flagging down either bus boys or even the host for help. This was not a busy evening, there was no excuse for Andy's absense. We would never think of coming to this disaster again. Food was good, service was the worst we'd ever encountered. You get treated better at McDonalds."

  • "Food was amazing, the owner was very accommodating. Unfortunately we had a server, Matt. He was very arrogant and inattentive. My date and I were on our anniversary dinner and we both agreed that we made a mistake by requesting him. We never felt like he cared or had any concern for our experience that night."

  • "Great pasta dishes, most are enough for two people to share. We were a group of six and ordered three dishes and two salads for the whole group to share. it was a great and memorable experience. Our waiter was very helpful with the menu and suggestions."

  • "Their homemade noodles were an unexpected and astounding treat. I ordered the lasagna and it was the best I've ever had. It didn't rely on too much cheese, but had just enough. I can't say enough about how great Sapori was."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
