The service was horrible. I felt they were rushing us out, taking the plates away before we were finished. Nothing was good about it. The food, which is normally good, was bland and tasteless. Two of us barely ate our meals but no one bothered to ask we had a problem.
While I've been to Cafe Sapori many times, it will be a long time before I return.

Food was good but portions were smaller than usual for the prices charged, noise level high, waiter Nando was not very accommodating at first and had a slight “attitude” . rushed to take our drink order and then was distracted ..but then when the restaurant emptied out a little , he was better. I love this restaurant and brought friends of ours . It was their first time. They were a little disappointed!

Over all very good experience.

Love the ambiance fancy without being overly fancy

Service was great didn't feel crowed by server but didn't feel ignored. Drinks were promptly refilled.

The food was generally good.

We started with the crab cakes which were my favorite part of the meal. They were lightly fried or maybe baked and served with a tasty slightly spicy dipping sauce and (really yummy) guacamole. Delicious.

For dinner I had the ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta with butter sage sauce. It was good not great. Sauce was well done but nothing blew me away.

Boyfriend has the chicken parm it was pounded very thin and had pretty good flavor but again not fantastic. I think my taste buds are a bit skewed tho being from the north east.

For dessert we got the chocolate hazelnut cake which was good but very rich. "Real chocolate not American chocolate" as my boyfriend said.

Bill came to just 80 dollars which is very fair given the service and number of courses we had.

I wouldn't call it GREAT Italian food but I'm comparing it to the north end restaurants in Boston so I'd only say pretty good overall but probably great for south Florida Italian

Our Server was Tim and he was warm and inviting from the moment I walked in the door. He anticipated our needs, communicated clearly, had a pleasant and friendly demeanor and didn't rush us through our meal. The ambiance is white-table-cloth lovely without being stiff.
The food was superb and there are many interesting food items I will be trying in the days to come.
The restaurant owner came over at least twice to check in with us and was quite cordial and friendly.
I am thinking of having my Christmas staff party there next year in the private room or in the outside seating area.

We have dined here many times. Almost always take friends who haven't been there before.
Everyone loves it. Last Saturday was no exception. Took friends who enjoyed it very much.
We had linguini with clam sauce, Chicken Parmesan, seafood with broccoli, and roasted chicken. All very good but my friend who had the chicken said that although it was good, she would try a more adventurous dish next time.
We Also like the fact that each time we go there, patrons are always dressed appropriately. I've yet to see blue jeans or shorts on anyone.

Have dined here many times and find it consistent as far as good food and service.
Here this Sat. night at 7 which is a very busy time. They really try to get the food out at a good pace. It was my wife's birthday and bought a lovely desert with candle and sang Happy Birthday.
Will go back soon.

We were greeted at the entrance by an odor and stench that smelt like open drains and permeated through the entire entrance to the building. It took three different staff members and a good seven minutes for them to decide how to make a French martini and we were the only people at the bar. The wine list is very extensive but also expensive. We chose this restaurant because of previous experience but on this visit we found the food to be bland to mediocre.

Overall we enjoyed and would go back, It did have some negatives, the tasting menu although inspired in thought did not live up to the hype. The prices of some of the dishes was a bit high even for a top end place and especially in off season. My homemade pasta off the standard menu was excellent but lacked a full serving of protein. My carpaccio salad with fried zucchini flower was tasty but needed some beef carpaccio as it is usually served. The pounded salmon on the tasting menu was "interesting" but a bit skimpy in the portion size.

Sapori continues to be the best Italian restaurant in the Palm Beaches. The menu is constantly evolving and offers many choices for the diner at all price levels. Summer specials, great desserts and a reasonably priced wine list brings me back all the time. Professionals rule the dining room with friendly and efficient service.

I thought the service was pretty good but the food was so so. I ordered one of their namesake dishes which I thought was rather bland and my date ordered a chicken dish I thought was good but not outstanding. Therefore while it was an overall positive experience for the money I spent I could have gone to a better place with better ambiance.
