Excellent food combined with great service and a lively ambiance make this restaurant a great place for both weekday and weekend dining. A favorite of mine is the bronzino which is the best I've ever had. Great for inside or patio dining if the weather is good. A real neighborhood treat.
Excellent food and service. Would definitely go back.
All four of us loved our meals! Beet salad - amazing! Veal chop - I dream of it!
Great neighborhood place. Grilled octopus, arugula salad, fish and veal cacciatore are great.
It was the second time my fiancé and I dined at Osteria Saporino to celebrate our anniversary. We did not expect such a gem of a restaurant to be nestled in the back of a strip mall but I am very glad we found it. The service is great whether it is busy or slow and the food is delicious. The tomatoes that come with the burrata appetizer are addictive and I can’t stop thinking about them. I’m a vegetarian and the servers were very accommodating and were able to order me a dinner portion of the Eggplant Napoleon which is incredible. My fiancé enjoyed the pasta dishes he got both times and we loved the desserts. The pistachio cake was really unique and delicious. To top it off it is BYOB which we didn’t realize the first time but were prepared on our second visit. We also enjoyed the limoncello, it was the perfect ending to a great meal.
The first time here, sadly to say, I was not impressed. I expect veal in any restaurant but especially an Italian restaurant to be fork tender and it just wasn't. However, I'm so happy we decided to give them another try.
The Buratta came with perfectly roasted, caramelized grape tomatoes, fruity olive oil and drizzled balsamic vinegar. I could live on this! And the Scallops Saporino were cooked absolutely perfectly as was the snapper that I ordered and my husbands mushroom risotto. Amazing!
The food is superb and authentic and the wait staff is attentive without being overbearing. If you go, and you should, sit outside in their delightful patio area and bring a nice bottle of wine.
So wonderful ! Not the largest menu, I usually end up ordering a special told to us by the waiter. Never disappointed. Wow wow wow! Deliciousness!!! My favorite local restaurant.
There were four of us on a Saturday night and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was very good and we all liked the selections on the menu. We were happy with the size of the entrees as well as the flavor and quality. Three of us shared the creme brulee for dessert and they said it was the best they ever had! We were very happy and will definitely return!
Party of 5 for a birthday dinner on a Saturday night (happened to be night before Easter). The restaurant was less than 50% full but that may have been due to holiday. The food was delicious. We shared mussels & clams and the sausage & mushrooms. I had a pear special salad which was a perfect size( not so annoyingly small that you’re mad but not so big you can’t eat your meal. The mushroom risotto was also very good. The birthday girl received free tiramisu and we all got complimentary limoncello. All in all a pleasant experience.
Excellent service and magnificent food.
Was okay. Nothing special. Had grilled calamari and it was cold, lukewarm in spots. Had the special salad whih the server kept insisting was the best one. Would not have wanted to taste others. Bland, needed citrus or some pop in the balsamic dressing. Waiter gave off the attitude that it was a bother to serve us.
Second tome there. Service, outstanding! Food, great but limited chicken dishes if you like chicken. Very good pasta dishes. Haven’t tried the veal dishes, but I will next time.
The food was very good and the service was the best we’ve had in a long time. The waiters were very attentive. Our entrees were hot. I ordered a special and My scallops were cooked perfectly. The gnocchi’s and steak with Gorgonzola is a menu item. It was good but it could have used a touch more Gorgonzola and seasoning. The salad was very fresh and perfectly dressed. It was not disappointing. We will go there again.
Food was very good. But I’d like to see a little more choices on the menu.
Service was outstanding !
Yes I would recommend !
First time there with a group of friends and we were very impressed! Very nicely decorated, great menu, awesome service. Everyone's food was delicious, didn't have to wait too long and we were all very happy with our food. I would recommend highly!
It was a shame. Very good food but we couldn’t wait to leave. You couldn’t have a conversation the noise level was terrible.
Amazing as always. Great food. close by. good seating. perfect :)
The food was excellent--beet salad and pasta bolognese. The service was very attentive. We go early when it's quieter since it does get very loud.
Special occasion with friends who recently had a baby! It was their first dinner without baby. The food was delicious! The appetizers were brought to the table quickly and we brought our own bottle of wine to enjoy! The service was excellent.
My husband and I really enjoyed our night out! the food was amazing and the service was great too! Would definitely recommend this quaint BYOB, and look forward to going back when the outdoor patio is open!
Reserved at Osteria Saporino for Valentines Day mainly because we were looking for a nice place within a few miles of our suburban home that had an opening at the last minute. Another nearby place we'd been thinking of was booked. My wife had been there a long time ago under different ownership. Very pleased - very good. Not cheap but not super-expensive either, upscale Italian food probably as good as anything downtown so why drive an hour and pay for parking. Doesn't look like much from the strip mall outside but pretty large and nice inside. Nice/eager/accommodating staff. Wintertime so didn't look carefully at what looked to be an outdoor patio, might try it again in the spring. Pasta dishes and salads very creative. Great grilled calamari appetizer. Would like to go back and try more dishes. BYO which keeps the cost down somewhat.
Nice restaurant makes for pleasant dining experience. The menu was slightly reduced and service a little slower than usual probably due to the holiday. Others enjoyed their pasta and salad dishes. I had the pork loin special which was very dry and overly salty. Portions were very small for the price but a nice place for a special occasion.
We went twice in one week. Very consistent every time i have been there. Great variety and it works for business meetings to family celebrations. Me and my family love this place.
I had the Linguine Pescatore which had only 2 shrimp, several tiny mussels, 8-10 small CLAM SHELL FRAGMENTS and some calamari. My wife had the salmon which was excellent as was the arugula salad. Service was slow. The noise in the room was beyond excessive.
This place was awesome. Service was great. The food was delicious!
Loved it from start to finish. Service was pleasant and very knowledgeable about cuisine in general. Music lovely. The food was creative but also many traditional italian dishes. There was something for everybody with different tastes. BYOB just pits it over the top. It saves a trip to the city as well.
Food was delicious and fresh!
The food was surprisingly good! We had the eggplant appetizer and salmon and gnocchi entrees. The place was packed on a Saturday night which was a good sign. Certainly a hidden gem for a strip mall location. Loved that it was BYOB also.
Music so loud we could not hear waiter giving specials.
Food fair. Prices high.
Great local spot. Wonderful food and menu. Authentic Italian.
I go to this restaurant all the time and it is consistently good. Always have good service. So happy to have a neighborhood restaurant that is this good. Pleasure not to drive in town and not pay for parking.
Very Good Italian food with a BYOB benefit. Service was fine, food well prepared, definitely will re visit.. You should too!
Loved our dinner!!
This was our first visit but it won’t be our last. Food and service were great.
Great BYOB! started with the antipasto and mussels. We were 2 couples everyone tried something different and it was excellent. I had the salmon over spinach which was cooked perfect. Great service. We will be back.
This was my first time dining here. I’d definitely come back.
We always enjoy this restaurant. Great food combined with excellent service. Always a treat.
The food was AMAZING! It was a busy night so it definitely felt like the staff was running around. We weren’t rushed which aaa nice. This is my second time dining here and I will definitely be back.
The food and service are both very good here. Large portions and very tasty - the servers are very nice and friendly.
I personally have a problem in that the room is large and very bright - ambiance almost zero.
Great place for lunch or dinner, service was great, food was fresh, hot and delicious.
