We dined at Sapore on New Year's Eve. They had their regular, extensive menu. No crazy priced "special" menu. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding. We definitely will be back! More

American | Mays Landing, Atlantic City

Friendly and very attentive staff that makes you feel welcome. Fun atmosphere. Menu has something for everyone whether for lunch or dinner. Great baby back ribs and very good salmon with very good side dish offerings. Timely delivery of your meal. Full bar to sit at and dine or eat at any one of their other dining rooms. Great for locals or anyone visiting the area. We really enjoyed our meals and look forward to our next visit. More

Food and drinks were amazing, my server was so nice and helpful. Their rose sangria is great. My boyfriends steak was supposed to be medium well but was almost rare in the center. Mine was cooked perfectly. Would visit again More

Discover South Jersey Shore

There is no place like the Jersey Shore. Towns like Atlantic City have much to offer, especially food. With cheese on the bottom and sauce on top, boardwalk pizza is a delight. Consider trying an oversized "XXL" pie with cheese, mushrooms, and red peppers. Atlantic City is one of the best places to get salt water taffy. Available in any candy store in the neighborhood, this treat comes in a variety of flavors. Dig through the box and discover why this candy has been a Jersey Shore favorite for over 100 years. No trip to Atlantic City is complete without a taste of creamy homemade ice cream. The salt water air will make you crave this amazing dessert.
