    We love Sapore! A must whenever we are down in Cape May. The food is excellent and the specials are always worth a try. We will typically go here at least twice when we come down because it is THAT good. The penne vodka and chicken fantasia are standouts. I had the seafood pasta special with a pink cognac sauce which was out of this world good. It is byob but there is a good liquor store right there so you can pick up whatever you would normally order. Lastly, the AC is not very strong inside so if it’s summer and you’re eating late then it might be worth sitting outside. You must go, it’s excellent!

    Our food was excellent as usual but… Service was adequate at best. Our food came out in waves. We ordered children’s meals early so we could get them eating before ours came out. Unfortunately, the kid meals arrived five minutes after three of the adult meals came out. The other adult meal arrived about three minutes after the kids meals. No apology, no explanation. Prices have gone up about 20% and the complimentary appetizer has disappeared. Disapointing!

    Very much enjoyed our evening seated on the outside patio. This was a perfect seat. We were seated promptly with a reservation. Service was good but took a very long time to get our entrees. Overall great experience and food was good. Favorite was the beat salad. We love Italian and would recommend!!

    My husband and I recently tried this restaurant and we were very impressed. We each tried the seafood bisque soup and then hubby had the risotto with shrimp and I tried the langostino's. The soup was excellent! Our dinners were amazing! We even tried dessert. We each had a lemon flute and they were delicious! The service was excellent! We would highly recommend this place.

    Brushetta was served on soft, not baked/toasted bread. Clam had no taste and when I asked for a seafood fork the server had no idea what I referring to. He then finally figured it out and only brought 1 when 2 people were sharing. The veal was good, but I asked for vegetables instead of pasta and none were served. When I asked the server about it, he shrugged his shoulders. Unfortunately, servers are an important part of my experience when dining. This place has many that are unable to understand due to language barriers. My expectations were set too high for this place and was part of the problem.

    If you like the idea of a bad comic as your waiter, visit Sapore. Waiter was trying to be funny and told us it cost $18.95 to uncork a bottle of wine. After I told him he wasn’t funny, at the end of the dinner he gave us a check that included items we didn’t purchase and was $400. I am all for practical jokes but know your audience, not the time and place for this behavior. No need to ever return here.

    Well , it started out horribly but finished well. Hostess had a scowl on her face & ignored us. A younger girl asked if we had a reservation which we did .The unfriendly hostess abruptly stood up from her chair & took a book with her .. a reservation book ? .. and walked up a flight of stairs . She then came right back down and my wife was standing in front of the chair she had been sitting in and she actually hip checked my wife .. and I said was that?! I got no response my wife told me to let it go . It was not accidental. Service was good .. Alex was our waiter . The food was amazing … I had linguine Pescatore.. best I ever had … my wife just had pasta with sauce also very good . Started with an arugula salad which was great . For dessert I had lemon sorbet .. wife had a slice of grandmother’s pie .. torta Della nonna both amazing. Delicious double espresso . Other then hostess , amazing . She was obviously in a bad mood but regardless don’t take it out on your customers. She should not be working in such a nice place . Beautiful restaurant. If not for her .. maximum rating .

    Our entrees were very good however the appetizers were not.We had steamed clams that were quite sandy and the portion of eggplant rolotini was over priced and not very good. The service was very good and I probably would return.

    I made an early Sunday dinner reservation on their website. When we arrived I was told I had an inside reservation. After I pushed back I was rudely told we could be seated outside but had to leave the table in 1 hour, 1 hour 15 max. Two important things. The outside area was nearly empty, and there is no such thing as indoor/outdoor reservations on their website. It's the date,time and number of people, that's it! The food was ok, but being from North Jersey we weren't too impressed.

    Food was great. It is my fifth time experiencing this restaurant. However they get removed the complimentary anti pasta dish which was very disappointing to me and my group. They blamed it on the new chef but I think they were looking to cut costs. The menu has lots of good dishes and the service was nice . We had a nice table near the fireplace .

    Felt like I was eating in someones bedroom. Ordered Clams over pasta. More shells then clams. Think they reuse the shells and put in canned clams and broth. Over priced.
