We are long time patrons of Sapori. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Great food, and friendly staff. This time we were under a speaker, which detracted from the experience a little. But we didn't complain and enjoyed the meal and our time together.

The food was great as it always is when we visit the restaurant. However there was a group of young girls that did not know how to conduct themselves. It was apparent that other diners were also bothered by the loudness of the group.

Chef Anthony and his staff once again provided great food and service! Gia was attentive and pleasant as always. We enjoy the Tuesday jazz set very much, so it has become our "date night." Thanks so much for a wonderful evening!

The service was great and the sidewalk table was perfect. The bread was great, the salad was good, but several of the main courses were under par. My husband's pasta was tasteless. My mussels were fresh but the red sauce was also tasteless. My friend's fried calamari was so-so. It's such a shame because everything else was wonderful--including the birthday attention and tiramasu, and the space made for our friend in a wheelchair.

You can order half sizes of pasta, so it’s fun to go with another person and get 4 half sizes. So many flavors!

When the olive oil served with bread has no flavor it says a lot about what kind of food you will get at an Italian restaurant. Pesto sauce tasted like something out of a jar, salad was wilted and just overall not very good.

We came with a party of four, all having some sort of pasta. Two of the dishes were very good. The pumpkin pasta also tasted great but the portion was very small. The Contadino pasta had a mild sausage that was too mild and the flavor was overwhelmed by parsley. That dish had a good portion which could not be finished because of the taste.

We expressed our thoughts and were given a free dessert. That was great! However it was a rather bland tiramisu. Not remarkable at all.

Also a problem was the noise level upstairs. Even the waitress complained of it. Wow!

In all, this was a disappointing experience.

Jen was our server, she was wonderful! Great suggestions the ribs were the best thing I ever had. Everything start to finish was delicious. We will be back. All the pasta is enough for sharing.

Overall her experience was quite wonderful. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic, and they even treated us with a complementary dessert platter to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The only thing I would have negative to say was that it was extremely noisy/loud in our area which made it hard to have a conversation at our table. But otherwise the experience was top notch.

From the moment we step in we were treated with friendly attention by Vince. We were taken to our table on the second floor and the waitress , Mia, mediately introduced herself and took drink orders. The menu had a very nice touch due to the personal greetings as we were celebrating our anniversary. The food and service was excellent. The volume level in the room was quite high due in part to several large talkative groups. We were treated with a special dessert. We will make plans to return very soon. Five star dining experience.

The team at Sapori was super accommodating. We arrived about 30 mins later than our reserved time and they did their best to accommodate us. Our server, Grace, was awesome! Food was not the best Italian we have ever had but overall, I would definitely recommend Sapori given its service!

Great neighborhood gem. Fantastic food. Pasta was fresh, served hot, and the service was impeccable-- warm and welcoming and not pretentious at all.

Only complaint/suggestion: the caesar salad was swimming in dressing. Definitely ask for light dressing or on the side.
