Despite reservation, seated 40 minutes after. Then, appetizers and entrees were brought to table within 3 minutes of one another, as if they were trying to rush us out.
Wonderful, homemade dishes that were delicious! Great service, and ambiance. We would return on another trip to Chicago!
The Risotto is delicious! Service was great!
Food was great, we were celebrating a birthday. We mentioned this ahead of time and never received the cake
Such great food and ambiance.
Authentic Italian food. Amazing service. Reasonable size portions, you will not leave hungry.
Great food and service if you’re looking for good Italian food in the area. I will definitely be here again
Everything was great - our go to Italian in the city!
Over the top great...Fabulous! A wonderful choice of dishes!
Very good neighborhood Italian place. Portions are huge so plan to take leftovers home. House Chianti is excellent. Service attentive in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. Free parking available at Home Depot garage with ticket validation.
We have been coming for their pre fixe menu almost every mon for over 5yrs. Food is always good. But we were very disappointed because they cut their portions drastically.
Excellent, reliable food and terrific service (from Gia). Never disappoints. I will continue to return.
Exceptional food and knowledgeable service with a smile. One of my favorite go-to restaurants for the best Italian in the city.
The food was good, not outstanding. Our server was more interested in talking to her co-workers than paying attention to us. Our food took forever to come out of the kitchen. The noise level is beyond loud, practically had to scream at each other to be heard. I would give it another try, but only during the week and go early before it gets crowded.
Overall I liked the ambiance of the place and the service was great, however the food wasn’t out of this world. I ordered gnocchi which I felt was overdone, kind of like mashed potato consistency, I prefer more al dente. My fiancé ordered the lasagna which was much better than the gnocchi but again, I didn’t find it better than other lasagna which was disappointing because we rarely treat ourselves to pasta dishes and were expecting something special based on the reviews we read.
We had an outstanding dining experience at Sapori Trattoria. The restaurant is romantic, the service was outstanding, and the food was sublime!
Delicious Italian food in a comfy neighborhood restaurant. Linguini with clams is a favorite. Great martinis, interesting wine list. Always a great value.
The food, ambiance, and service were all amazing. The staff was kind and knowledgeable and every dish was incredible!
went here with my sister who was in town from ohio state, got the gnocchi with salmon - amazing, avocado toast (not totally necessary), and brussels (amazing) topped off with a bottle of white wine. would certainly recommend! great, friendly, FAST service
The food and experience at Sapori Trattoria were excellent. Both of our entrees were delicious and came in more than ample portions. The service was very attentive, but not overbearing, and because it was my wife's birthday, they gave us a delicious dessert as well! We were seated in the back, which was much quieter than the front and I'd definitely prefer to be there the next time we dine here again, as I could see it getting moderately loud up front where it's more crowded.
I'd certainly recommend Sapori Trattoria to a friend. With so many options in Chicago, we rarely go back to the same place twice, but we'll almost certainly be back - probably more than once!
The waiter was unfriendly and inattentive. He did not make any eye contact and was barely audible when taking our order. I was visiting Chicago with my son who has been accepted at DePaul; this was meant to be a yummy end of day dinner. We tried to engage the waiter, but he just wasn’t having it.
The Cesare salad was good. My son enjoyed his vegetarian lasagna. On the other hand, my pumpkin ravioli seemed to have been deep fried. There was cooked oil everywhere and the “stuff” over the top was deep fried as well. I could barely taste the pumpkin and ate very little because it was so oily.
The waiter never checked back to see how our meals were, although he was extremely attentive to the table next to us which was only half an arm’s length away. It was really weird. Even my son noticed it.
I did leave a tip - although only 12% - in recognition that maybe he was having a bad day, maybe his boss is nasty or maybe he was working the shift of someone who didn’t show up. But honestly - it was a terrible experience.
We had gone for dinner at Pera for Turkish food the night before. The food was excellent. The staff including our waiter were attentive and genuinely interested in our experience. I guess that was our expectation when we went to Sapori, and that expectation was not met.
I love this place! Great food and great service!
Had the best experience here for a 25th birthday! The personalized menus, free cake (and a shot!), and our awesome server made it a great night. Will definitely be back.
The food we had was excellent! We tried 4 different dishes as a group. Our waiter let us substitute different kinds of pasta from the one listed on the menu. The pinot noir went with meat pasta dishes well. Our tiramisu was out of this world and a bang for your buck!
Experience was good except we weren’t too happy we got stuck in a very small corner.
Excellent. Food and hospitality gets A+
Food was incredible and we loved our waiter!
Went for Valentine's Day. I would recommend this spot for any night of the week. Great romantic atmosphere. Good sized portions for a decent price, food was outstanding.
Food and our server was great. Only issue it was so packed we were asked to stand on the staircase for 25 minutes waiting for our table reservation.
Cattle call on Valentine’s Day
It was Valentine's Day and the loud music upstairs was not romantic. It was inappropriate for the occasion.
Peter our server was excellent. Very attentive and new the menu well. We will be back.
Awesome place! Went for my daughters birthday and it was great.food was fabulous, waitress was friendly and helpful
Will definitely go back
Everything is perfect
A favorite, almost always a wonderful and special place, almost always 5 star :)
Great staff, service and food! Love this place.
A true neighborhood gem, and our Chicago favorite!
Great service and everyone in my party of 7 loved their meal. Salads were great too.
We were seated promptly and even though it was a busy Friday night we felt like the service was outstanding- never were we waiting for the server to come back to our table. The food was delicious and our wine glasses were always full. Great value, service, and food!!
