The cuisine upholds the philosophy of new southern Italian dining. With fresh fish and seafood, varied meat and poultry entrees, traditional pasta offerings, the European sense of healthy and balanced proportions is maintained.
The menu is seasonal, and in addition to the selection of superb dishes to satisfy any palate, daily specials are also featured. Dining at Cafe Sapori is simultaneously an evening out, yet similar to eating with a friend who also happens to be a culinary marvel.
The beautiful patio is now open for outdoor dining.
BYOB. Reservations are highly recommended for large groups (four and up) especially on the weekend. For your convenience, free parking is available.
Decent Italian food and great service! This is our go to for dinner during the week. The weekends can get pretty busy.
Thus was not our first time at the cafe but each time we have been there either with couples or by ourselves food excellent as service
Food is delicious! Servers are personable and attentive. Highly recommend.

Beautiful night out sitting in the deck, service was awesome as ever, food was delightful.
Excellent kitchen, welcoming, attentive accomplished staff.
We arrived for an early dinner on a Sunday evening, having heard good things about the restaurant and because outside dining was available. We were seated in between two large tables that were empty when we sat down. The tables were very close but we assumed the larger parties would be seated much later and there were many open tables. The two larger parties arrived almost immediately and even though the patio dining area was almost empty we had no personal space for our meal. The bugs and mosquitos were terrible and made for a very unpleasant experience but it was the bland taste of the meals that was most disappointing. Minimal flavor at best and the oriechette with shrimp had only 4 flavorless shrimp. It is a BYO restaurant and when the waitress put a bottle of champagne from the table next to us into our ice bucket, we were in disbelief. Check please. Very disappointed.
You must visit Cafe Sapori. This little gem tucked behind a classic car dealership and across from the Gladstone NJ Transit station is a must.
From the friendly welcome, great/professional service and fantastic food you'll be glad you tried this great restaurant.
We try to get to Cafe Sapori at least once a month/six weeks. We've been all around the menu, and have never been disappointed, although it's always difficult to look beyond the specials...
Food was excellent. I think they had a shortage of staff so it took a long time to bring food and they forgot to bring appetizers otherwise I still recommend.
Consistent excellent food and service, plenty of free parking
I don't want to share my review because I want to keep it my secret. This restaurant is fabulous from the service to the food. Even the owner was out on the ground helping to serve people. HIGHLY recommend. The beef tip parpadelle bolognese with a touch of cream is the best I've ever had, minus my Dad's!!
Consistently excellent never disappointed, great food and staff
the meals are incredible, from appetizer through entree' to the fabulous desserts!
the crew is energetic and attentive and all actually have personality. just a relaxing perfect environment to enjoy a spectacular meal after a long week, we have brought Family and Friends and have never been disappointed. Thank you for that!
Excellent lunch at Café Sapori. This was our second visit in the last two months and both times they delivered. The café is in a strange location but it’s worth finding it for the food and service. At lunch we had exceptional gnocchi and Bronzino. Can’t wait to go back there
We enjoyed a lovely dinner on the patio. Service was wonderful and attentive and the food was very good. What a nice place to go.
Everything was fantastic (food, service and ambiance). My only suggestion is please change your music - too boring!
Cafe Sapori on a Saturday night is extremely busy. But the restaurant is managed brilliantly. No diner at any table, both inside and on the terrace outside, had to wait for food or service. It was simply amazing to me and our guests that everything proceeded without a hitch. Really a tribute to management and staff. We usually dine here for lunch, when the restaurant is less crowded, but we dined out this evening with friends from Manhattan, who enjoyed their dinner immensely and said that, in NY, the bill would have been much higher. Kudos to everyone serving the restaurant!
Cafe Sapori is one of our “go-to” restaurants in our area for a great meal in a customer friendly environment and exceptional service.
We have been all over the menu, and have never been disappointed, you’re safe ordering anything.
The standard menu has a great a sort of Italian favorites, but you must also look over the daily specials…all very good!
very nice upscale Italian Restaurant in Peapack-Gladstone.....Food was excellent, service and staffers were pleasant and helpful...very pretty seating inside and outside. First time there and loved it!!!
Great dining experience. Food, ambiance and service all terrific.
Always great food and service. My wife and I favorite Italian restaurant
We sat outside . Food and service was excellent except for tiramisu which I wanted to return but other people at the table did not want to do.
An Excellent dining experience. The service was very helpful.

Excellent Menu and Specials
Quality of food is delicious and well prepared
Service is attentive and professional
Outside dining is very pretty
As usual, dining at Cafe Sapori is such a great experience. The food is always excellent and unlike most Italian restaurants, they have an extensive and varied dessert menu. The service is always top notch and dining on the patio was so pleasant. Always a 5 star experience.
Always wonderful! Food excellent, service outstanding and love that we can sit outdoors!
We had the filet of sole, it was excellent and the service was superb!
Great Food good friends----------------------------
Cafe Sapporo is delightful on so many levels! Delicious food, excellent service, lovely space!
First time experience was very good. Food is authentic and delicious! Highly recommend!
Excellent food in a pretty, country setting. Staff was very attentive if extremely busy. A packed dining room resulted in a high noise level and difficult conversation.
As always, Cafe Sapori was a great choice to meet friends for lunch. The food was great as was the service. We had shrimp francese, salmon, bronzini, and short ribs parpadelle. This is a favorite place for us!
Food excellent. Outside too-much mosquito, so uncomfortable
My favorite place to dine. Excellent food &service
Overall the food was good however the linguine with white clam sauce was disappointing. Not many clams and sauce was bland
All of the other veal dishes were great.
Service was FANTASTIC!!
Lively restaurant with an incredibly high noise level. We were seated at the table by the door to the outside area and the foot traffic and open/close of the door was distracting. My halibut was recommended over the bronzino but it was overcooked and unedible. My partner's lobster ravioli was excellent. The creme brulee wasn't properly warmed throughout and the caramel crust was too thick. Too bad...
