We had a table of 6 on Tuesday night celebrating a birthday; the team at Sapori did a great job, as they usually do. Service was attentive and efficient; i appreciated that we were given ample time to talk amongst ourselves with minimal interruption from the service staff; they took the order when we were ready and they did so efficiently. Food was great. We eat at Sapori often when we are in FL; as far as Italian restaurants go, it is one of the best in the area.

I have always been a big fan of Cafe Sapori. However, the food is not as good as it used to be. Not sure if they changed chefs but the food was bland and I had to send my pasta dish back because the sauce was like eating paste and it was a basic dish.

Locally known for it's fresh made in-house pastas this tried and true upscale Italian Restaurant never disappoints. We are always greeted with a smile, seated quickly, attended to graciously. The food is consistantly delicious and beautifully presented. Large portions can be split in the kitchen which we appreciate. My only caveat is that the wine prices are pushing the envelope but we have this criticism about most places these days. The in house (by the glass) selections are very drinkable for the price, t but we are not exceedingly demanding in that regard. Try the veal medallions which were out of this world. All the pastas I've tried from Boar to Seafood have been excellent.

Sat in the outside but covered dining area. Very noisy- airplanes from PBI overhead + other diners. Food is very good but very expensive. Caesar salad very pedestrian for $14...

The service was horrible. It was a busy night, however that is no excuse for poor customer service, especially at a higher end restaurant. Upon entering, waiters were carrying large chairs over their heads to the inside almost knocking people over at the entrance. No excuse me or pardon me. Just plowing through. The maître d’ said he would be right with me. During his absence, a couple went in front of me. When he returned he tended to them although he made notice of me. I stated to him that they had jumped the line and he said everyone’s in a rush. No apology. States that he is getting my table ready. Got to the table and service for one was set instead of for 2 and no salt and pepper on table. Waiter brings only water for 1. Large party next to my table and group of waiters coordinating the service for them by almost yelling at each other. Waiter never stopped to check in at table and asked if food was good. Food was mediocre. I have heard from others that when it’s quiet there the customer service is good. There are plenty of restaurants in town that know how to run a restaurant no matter how busy they are.

Service seemed unusually slow and my Bronzino was not cooked well enough but too busy to send back. It us usually perfect. Had to ask for bread 3 times. Manager finially got it. Seemed a little confusion there Saturday night. Took quite some time for the tables to be cleaned off. Was the first time in many years I was disappointed

Everything was fantastic except a woman with her untrained barking dog which I think is very tacky and wrong to carry into a restaurant and servers had to trip over. But love the restaurant.

Appreciated the half orders of Pasta dishes. The fresh spaghetti was mushy so the waiter had it remade using the dry pasta; explaining that fresh spaghetti can never be al dente. I never had that told to me before. I think the problem was the kitchen sent out our pasta and the salad at the same time. Then the pasta was sent back and brought out after the salad was finished. The waiter was very good. The place is nice and so is the clientele. Valet parkers are very friendly and helpful.

We were seated by the kitchen, staff kept bunking into one of the people at our table. The maitre’d was extremely rude when we asked for a table change. Ultimately, we left after our salads since at this restaurant customers do not come first!!!

This was a strange mixed-bag experience. Our wait staff was very attentive when we sat down and answered questions from the wine list as well as the menu. He inadvertently spilled over a full glass of water on my brother. Not a problem. It was cleaned up. After we finished our delicious meal the same waiter spilled over my sister-in-law's glass of water which splashed onto her almost-finished plate then onto her pants. This time the waiter didn't seem very apologetic and I don't know why. We thought he might have gone out of his way to make amends but he actually didn't seem to care. We had to call over the manager as my SIL's pants were clearly stained. The manager came through with taking off a salad from the total bill but it was almost like pulling teeth. He offered free dessert but we are not dessert eaters. The food was EXCELLENT, but perhaps our seasoned waiter was very off that night. It ended strangely.
Anyway, BE CAREFUL.

Food and service were outstanding,however prior to finishing our meal the staff began setting up for next meal moving tables talking loudly with no consideration for us despite a hefty bill. When I complained to the manager who was drinking wine and flirting with the hostess he was indifferent , defensive and hostile. As a yearly visitor and frequent patron this experience was definitely denigrated by this inexcusable behavior. It appears to Mr that their losing a long time customer was of no interest to them. Palm beach has many other choices, I would avail myself of them rather than waste an evening where you are made to feel insignificant and unimportant.

No daily special. The same menu specials that have been on the preprinted menu for months. Are you kidding. Overpriced standard fare you can get at the local pizza place. The servers are terrible. Can’t take a basic drink order correctly. I will not return.

Upbeat and festive in feeling.
