Outstanding meal and service. We started with the seasonal appetizer. A small pumpkin filled with mild Italian sausage and herbs with carmelized nuts on the side. Very tasty and presentable. Stella salad with honey mustard was wonderful and portion so generous we split it. We followed that with their osso buco which was served over lasagna. The meat was very tender! Wish we had room for dessert because we’re sure it would have been amazing.
This is a great place. Go here. Fantastic food. Can't recommend it enough.
I booked a table for 5 for my mother’s 60th birthday dinner and was so impressed when they called to ask her name, so that they could print special menu’s. The appetizers and pasta were very good and fresh. Unfortunately, our server was overtly rude, in particular to my mom, and not very well trained. Notably, all of us at the table have worked in the service industry for years and we are very mindful of all that waiters have going on and all they have to deal with. This waiter kept spilling water from the water pitcher all over our appetizers, and had no idea that he was doing it. The plate of bruschetta had an actual puddle at the bottom of it. He kept reaching over everyone’s food and bodies to refill water glasses, until we eventually pointed out the mess and he was obviously offended by our bringing it up. He raced away in a huff. Separately, 3 other tables were there for a birthday and were brought a tiramisu dish with a candle accompanied by song. We waited and waited after our dinner plates had been cleared away until he finally brought the celebratory tiramisu, but dropped it off in a brisk silence with no candle. He knew it was a 60th birthday, he started the meal initially by wishing her a happy birthday. We caught his eye a couple minutes later and asked for a candle, so we could sing to my mom — he was visibly and audibly furious. We were shocked and the evening was tainted by this profoundly disappointing service on an evening that had the makings of an otherwise enjoyable night. All because we asked him to please not spill puddles of water onto our appetizers....
Great!!! Food was amazing. Large portions.
Ambience was great too!
Service was amazing
All around incredible experience. From the moment we walked in jokes were cracked and the staff was delightful. Great unique recommendations were made, and the food was scrumptious. We were all so happy that we signed up for the emails, mail and can’t wait to come back!
Always reliably fresh and delicious!
Really amazing and positive experience! Went with my father to celebrate a new promotion and picked it because we had heard great things about it. The service was above and beyond and the food was delicious!
10/10 would go back and recommend to everyone I know!
Sapori Trattoria never disappoints my girlfriend and I. We always seem to come here for special occasions and every time they hit a home run. My girlfriend had the Bucatini Carbonara and I had the Linguini Alle Vongole. Both dishes where outstanding. Both featured homemade pasta and full of fresh ingredients and flavor.
Osso Bucco was excellent, the mushroom risotto wonderful. The entrees came out somewhat late. Our server made it up by giving us a complimentary tiramisu. Thanks!
The foods was very delicious. Our waitress (Miriam?) was so nice, friendly and helpful. Portions are very huge, so come here when you are really hungry 😋
Certain pasta portions were very large, others were much smaller.
If you want an intimate, delicious night out with your friends or lover this is place to be! Every room is SO secluded and cozy. I love Sapori Trattoria.
Pasta was so dry and tasted worse than something I could make.
Our favorite Sunday night date spot !
As always, Sapori gave us a wonderful meal. We got our favorites including the mushroom risotto and the Brussel sprouts salad. This time our server recommended adding sausage to the risotto. It was great. We look forward to our next visit to Sapori!
I went to Sapori Trattoria for my birthday dinner and was not disappointed! :) They made special menus that wished me a happy birthday and the chef came out to check on how everything was. Would definitely dine here again!
We dined a Sapori Trattoria previously. This time we were seated in a very small room behind the main dining room. The lack of decor and a bit of a grungy feeling lessened my experience. I may have preferred being in the main room after all, where on first appearance, it was very noisy. The food was good as was the service.
Food was good, but a little pricey
What an amazing experience! The food was exceptional and the service made my special day, even more special!
I hadn’t been to this restaurant for quite a while. I remember it as being a charming little restaurant. It is no longer that. Well the food and service were fine the restaurant is no longer charming. Brightly lighted and very very noisy. There could be no conversation without screaming. I wish it would go back to the way it was
We had a fabulous experience at Sapori! The food was spectacular and our server (Ernesto) was amazing! We had a great time and will be back soon!!!
Gia our server was excellent and would request her on our next visit. Noise level was high but our sever made the dinner just fine. Food was well prepared and will be going back.
Very nice and food was fantastic.
Always love coming to Sapori Trattiria and was happy to have 10 family members from out of town to enjoy it as well! thanks again and keep up the good food!
Great food & wonderful attentive service as always!
Lovely outdoor patio. Great service and great pasta.
Absolutely love the food here we are never disappointed. Will forever be repeat customers!
Great restaurant. Been going here since they opened many years ago. Always delicious food and great service.
My new favorite Italian restaurant to go to ! It’s a Gem!
Hidden gem in Chicago! The service was extraordinary. They cater to whatever your requests are. And the food is phenomenal! Try their lasagna, bruschetta, lobster ravioli(yummmmmmm), the pasta contandino( very good), and the seafood pasta(red sauce, a bit soupy -to die for)! We BYOB’d. Just don’t tell too many people cause I don’t want to wait days for a reservation.
Always a pleasure. Excellent service and excellent food! My favorite place to go for a beautiful meal.
Good food, good service, noisy.
Food was amazing...awesome service. Will definitely come back to this restaurant.
My friends all go to Sapori now! It’s become home cooking to us!
Always terrific. One of our local favorites.
When our daughter, Frieda, moved to Lincoln Park a few years ago, she took us to this neighborhood restaurant. It has since turned into our family's "go to restaurant" when we want an Excellent Meal with a European feel. Even though Frieda no longer lives in Chicago, we still manage to find reasons to head to Sapori several times a year. The food is Amazing! The chef is the sweetest! The staff are super helpful and kind and the ambiance is perfect! I cannot say enough great things about Sapori Trattoria! Once you try it, you will be hooked!
Celebrated my birthday with 12 of my friends! Food and service was amazing! Can not Express how amazing they made my night!
Sapori Trattoria is my eight year old daughter's favorite restaurant. No matter what we order, the chef never disappoints. We shared her favorite, the Zuppa di Pesce, and left with happy bellies and happy hearts.
My daughter just moved to Chicago. While visiting her, we decided to stop by one of the nearby restaurants and chose Sapori. From the ambience, to the service, to the food and drinks, this restaurant was top-notch. They had an extensive menu of Italian food that they even allowed you to customize to your own taste. I had Gnocchi Barese (I substituted spaghetti for gnocchi) that was absolutely amazing.
This is a true authentic Italian restaurant that you will not be disappointed in. Go there with friends or go there for date night. Food is fantastic and the wine list is extensive. You won’t be disappointed. We will be back there again
