Sapori Trattoria Ratings and Reviews
The place is much bigger than we would have even guessed. Each room is cozy and warmly decorated. Service was quick and very nice. Delicious wine, good mixed drinks. I had the lasagna-it was huge! But amazing! My fiancé had the gnocchi which was terrific. Will absolutely be coming back. Great place to bring your parents for a nice night out.
these people have their act together. They tailored the pace of service to the group which ranged in age from 95 to 2.
The food was traditional italian and was excellent---the pasta--whether in the form of lasagna , spaghetti, etc was much lighter than most places.
The portions and the prices are very good. people who would not ordinary take home a doggie bag did this time--and i doubt the dogs saw any of it.
really a good choice. --
Delicious entrees- seafood risotto and bolognese were so yummy. I was disappointed with the ceaser salad- not totally authentic. Great service and great experience overall. Reasonably priced wine list. Will definitely be going back and would recommend to others!
I was very surprised how much I enjoyed this dinner. Noise level was high but we could still easily converse. Food was very good and the portions were large. Two of us shared a salad before the large dinner portions. Lasagna is made as a single serving and is very good. Plan to take food home.
Sat downstairs, was wedged in between 2 tables and could hardly hear my fiend across the table. Someone puked on the floor behind us and it took a while to get it cleaned. Waitress was overly attentive and continuously broke up conversation. Food was good but would not want to sit downstairs again.
They were absolutely amazing! I wrote that we were going to celebrate my mom’s birthday and they personalized the menu for her! They also brought out yummy birthday desserts for her after the meal without me having to remind them it was her birthday. Also, the food is SO good. Their service is phenomenal - the staff would refill our glasses with drinks and water. They serve big portions which is perfect because you’ll be bound to have leftovers to eat for the next day 😉
This restaurant remains a favorite for my wife and I. We love Italian cuisine, and this restaurant just does it right. We have been here multiple times with various different groups of people, including vegetarian diners, and everyone has been a huge fan. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!
Estuvimos de visita en Chicago durante 5 días por mi cumpleaños, nos recomendaron este restaurante por su buena cocina y ambiente, lo cual lo pudimos confirmar en nuestra primera visita al Sapori Trattoria, donde probamos una de nuestras mejores cenas italianas (la mejor lasagna vegetariana y tiramisu que he probado), atendidos de manera excelente por su chef Anthony Barbanente y su equipo, fue un deliciosa, agradable e inolvidable velada, fue por eso que decidimos volver a los tres días para disfrutar nuevamente de sus exquisitos platillos y bebidas, de nueva cuenta fuimos atendidos por Anthony y su excelente equipo de colaboradores, quienes una vez más nos llenaron de atenciones y detalles que hicieron de nuestra segunda visita una extraordinaria, especial e inolvidable experiencia! Súper recomendable, definitivamente un restaurante que debes incluir en tus planes si vas de visita o vives en Chicago!!! Sin duda alguna volveremos!!!!
We live 1 and 1/2 hours from Chicago and visit about 5 times a year. This is the second time we dined at Sapori Trattoria in 5 months because we love it so much! The food is wonderful and is served in generous portions. The atmosphere is like an Italian family's home, welcoming and energetic. If we lived in the city we would definitely be regulars!
Great food and outstanding service. Walked here after seeing an afternoon performance of "Fun Home." We arrived a little earlier than they open but "Marco" saw us waiting outside and he said, "the kitchen will open soon but please come in and sit inside." I asked is the "bar " open, and his answer was "yes." Despite the fact that I am well over the age of 21 - he took our drink orders and ask to see my ID. I laughed and said, "really?" He smiled and said "ok" I believe you.
Couple minutes later our wonderful drinks with extra "cherries" and some delicious warm bread. We enjoyed our drinks and then he took our food order. Later our waiter "Vince" was appropriately checking on how we liked the food and if we needed anything else. We said only the check - he went back and came with a piece of dessert and told us "it was complimentary." How nice of the restaurant.
So great food, service. We will be back. Marco, I promise next time I will remember to bring my ID :)
