With an electric atmosphere, Cafe Sapori is an exciting, vibrant restaurant located in the heart of Gladstone, New Jersey.

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.

Six of us had dinner reservations for Sat. night at 6:30. We were seated right away, they gave us water, opened our wine....and then no one stopped back until I stopped someone at 7:05 pm. The place was packed, the staff were very busy the entire time, we just felt a little forgotten there. The food was all excellent - not as hot as usual when served, but excellent. Everyone enjoyed the burata, eggplant rollatini and salad appetizers. We also loved the Branzino special, it was excellent.
We were with a larger group than usual, and we had a great time chatting during our wait. A couple had coffee, no desserts. We left at 10 pm. We will definitely be back - they are still on our favorites list.

Always welcoming, beautiful ambiance and out of this world food. We had a buratta caprese salad, so delicious, smooth & creamy with beautiful Jersey tomatoes. The pork shank was amazing, meat just fell off the bone and my veal scaloppini picatta with potatoes and veggies was superb! The veal was so tender, I did not even have to use a knife! Added bonus, outside deck and its a BYOB!

Returned to Cafe Sapori for a double birthday dinner after an afternoon show in NYC. The food was excellent and the service appropriately attentive. A nice touch were candles on the gelato desserts.

This is our go to place in the area. We especially like the outdoor terrace on a beautiful evening. The food (an Italian chef) and service are always consistent and very good.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

We come here a lot as we really enjoy the food and service. Food is consistently good and fresh. We come often and there are always specials but I am thinking that the regular menu could have some new dishes added for variety for those who are regulars!

This was our fifth visit to Café Sapori, and it continues to provide quality food with excellent service. The service is attentive, but not fussy. The owner is always visible, overseeing that everything is running smoothly. We continue to go back and bring our friends or family, because we know that the high standards are always met.

From the hostess who was friendly, to the entire wait staff, they were all pleasant and professional, with really good timing on delivering the food. The patio, which was very crowded, did not feel cramped and was incredibly pleasant. As for the food, it was quite excellent! Good size portions, well presented, and as for the taste, it’s definitely on the better side good. Definitely one of the best in the area.
