Sapori Trattoria Ratings and Reviews
Never Disappoints! We having been coming here for several years and when we had some friends visiting from Michigan we decided to bring them here. Everyone loved the food and the service by Ernesto was superb! The lasagna was perfect and great for sharing. One of our friends had the pumpkin ravioli and loved it. Everyone time we come here I must have the avocado crostini it is fabulous. We will be back soon!
The highest quality of traditional Italian fare. Every dish was excellent (5 entrees and grilled calamari to die for!!!). This was our second visit and we weren’t disappointed! Same waitress both visits -excellent service. Huge portions -take home for a second meal. Freshest pastas. This has become our neighborhood go-to for reliably good food. Lots more menu options to try! We can’t wait!
We get our favorites every time we dine here: Insalata Stella, Cesare salad, Spaghetti Barese (love the veal meatballs and their sausage in this entre), meat lasagna, and a red wine. Their fresh bread with oil and powered cheese is something we look forward to. The portions are quite large so we have leftovers for another meal or two. Staff is attentive. We keep returning with our Groupon most visits. Highly recommended.
A group of 5 of us had dinner on NYE (6PM) and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious and the portions were HUGE!! We easily could have split one entree between 2-3 of us. The atmosphere was cozy albeit a tad warm and crowded but it was to expected on a holiday evening. Our waiter was fun with a great sense of humor. I would definitely recommend Sapori Trattoria!
Years and years after opening its doors, Sapori proves to be one of the best dining values in the city. The food and service never disappoint. If you are looking for a solid neighborhood restuarant that has many options including outdoor patio seating and is moderately priced, this is the place.
Asked for a variance, in a a recipe, which was stated it would not be a problem, but the taste of the dish was poor. Regularly what comes out of the kitchen from Sapori's is GREAT, but not this one dish. Everything else was Great! This will not detour us from returning, because they have a GREAT track record with us!
We had a lovely evening celebrating my birthday. My boyfriend ordered the seafood risotto and found many crunchy pieces of shell in his dish. We unfortunately did not bring this up to our server at that time. My rigatoni dish was delicious. The tables are quite close together and I felt that I could hear other couples conversations. Other than that, it was a lovely evening.
Sapori was pretty busy on Friday evening when we arrived, and we were seated per our reservation time and quickly greeted with water. Visits from our server were kind of few and far between; he seemed to have a couple of larger groups that were wrapping up as we were ordering, so waters sat empty for most of our visit (luckily there was plenty of wine!) and our entrees arrived before we were able to our finish our appetizer. My lobster pasta was incredible and my fiance loved the bolognese.
The food and ambiance are always wonderful and we will definitely be back!
Have been going to this most wonderful restaurant since it opened . Maybe 15 years ago.....
( I live in the San Francisco area , go every time I am in Chicago )
Have never had anything but THE most wonderful meal and EXCELLENT service.
Inside is lovely and the outside patio in summer also.
Thank you to all my friends at Sapori Trattoria..
We were concerned about the noise level but we were seated upstairs and it was fine at 7. Even when we left 8:30ish downstairs was comfortable. Our server was lovely, knowledgeable about the menu and patient with a puckey drink order. The quality of the food was excellent! This was our first visit. We live in the neighborhood and we WILL be back!
