Came on a Saturday night and couldn’t wait to leave. It was so packed and noisy you couldn’t carry in a conversation. Food is good but not worth the aggravation.

We had a great birthday dinner for a friend. Our waiter brought 3 desserts on a plate for the 6 of us all on his tab. We tipped him extra of course!

This is probably our tenth time at Sapori. As always, they meet or exceed our expectations for wonderful food and an enjoyable atmosphere. Diners at Sapori always seem so happy, including us!

Sapori Trattoria is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at, especially for events such as birthdays or date nights. The service staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, the vibe is perfect, and the food is beyond amazing. Definitely a must to eat here!

I had dinner with friends and had not been to the restaurant in about a year but chef Anthony has put together a organization that delivers a 100% excellent Dinning experience it was like I had been there just the week before I look forward to going back more often

We went on Valentine's Day, which was a mistake. We were seated not only on an aisle, where the hostess would lead customers to the upstairs dining room, but also right next to the door. So we were crowded, people were constantly bumping into the back of my chair, and then whenever the door opened, we were greeted with a gust of cold air. Once a woman carried her coat as she walked passed us and her coat grazed half the food on the table and almost spilled by date's glass of wine. The server seemed to know it was a sardine-like atmosphere and did his best. The food was okay but not worth the dining experience.

Mussels in white sauce was delicious. The seafood pasta was little salty but it was still good.

Food was very good, service was awful. Took forever to get drinks and once the food was served we couldn’t find our waitress for 45 minutes. It was a Sunday evening and not busy so I’m not sure where she was. Will not go back just from the service alone.

Food was incredible, server was great with recommendations. We went for Chicago Restaurant Week which was a GREAT deal. It was pretty crowded and loud, but that didn’t bother us too much

The food was very good and the service was excellent. However, the noise level was ridiculous. You had to shout just to be heard by the person across from you. Since I usually want to speak with my dinner companions, this is a big negative for a restaurant. The tables were very close together, and they had way too many large groups in a relatively small room.

The food is delicious. However, the service needs improvement. It seems like they aren’t very well organized. Our reservation was for 7:30pm and it was booked through Opentable. When we got there they couldn’t find our reservation. I showed them the email confirmation and then we were told our table wasn’t ready yet. We were not seated until 8:12pm. I don’t recommend it on a Saturday night, maybe during a less busy day of the week.
