Delicious Food, Amazing Service! I was blown away by the staff here. When I called to confirm my reservation, they asked in advance if we were celebrating anything. I responded "just friendship!" (we were a party of 7 friends). They still treated us like we were celebrating a major event. They sent out an appetizer and a huge spread of desserts all on the house! Our server was attentive but didn't rush us as we spent time catching up, and was patient enough to take a bunch of photos of us. On top of the great service, the food was DELICIOUS. Classic Italian done extremely well. Note - the pasta portions are LARGE, so definitely think about splitting if you're only normal-hungry and you don't want leftovers! The Pasta Carbonara was particularly outstanding.

As always, the food and service were excellent at Sapori Trattoria. The only suggestion that I would make for improvement is not put out the food so quickly after ordering.

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. --

I took my girlfriend to Sapori Trattoria for her birthday and she loved it. The portions were enough to feed a family and our waiter was fantastic. They even had a happy birthday message printed on the menu for her. I highly recommend and will be back!

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.

Found this restaurant two years ago. We loved it. Great Italian food. Service is excellent. It feels like the chef wants to get to know you. What you enjoy. Where they can improve. Like the $16 coupons they send. It's our favorite Italian eatery.

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 😉

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!!!!
