Italian
When I opened my doors in July of 2009, I committed to serving the freshest Italian dishes made from local and seasonal ingredients. I learned early the heart of Italian cooking is the flavor…or sapore. My school of teaching was from the best; my Nonna Elena and Mother Lia. Their philosophy has been carried on in my style of cooking: use simple ingredients and the food will speak for its self. Classic Italian dishes grace the menu but are personalized with my unique touch. Quality and consistency is what you will find with each dish. I would never serve anything short of that. So whether you are looking for a memorable night out or a glass of wine with friends, I am glad that you have chosen Sapore. As in true Italian tradition, I enjoy bringing people together through food. Ciao –

    We’ve been to Sapore before and always have a lovely time. Our scallops and filet were delicious. The service is welcoming and efficient - no hovering in but right there when you need something. This particular night there was a huge thunderstorm going on and we found the way to our car was flooded. We came back in the restaurant and were reseated at a clean table and stayed for another cocktail and coffee. When the storm abated but the passageway to our car was still full of water, one of the servers gallantly offered to go get our car and bring in around to where we could into it without getting soaked. We especially appreciated this as my husband is in a wheelchair. This is hospitality and kindness that goes above and beyond!

    First time here and enjoyed a nice quiet evening. Our server was fantastic and friendly. Scallops were 🔥🔥. Espresso martini was also amazing. Lobster risotto tasted fantastic. We will be back.

    As always, the food was amazing. The scallops were cooked perfectly, and the sea bass was great. I’d indicated that we were celebrating my wife’s birthday when I made the reservation and at no point during the evening was that acknowledged. Also, there appeared to be no full time bartender since our waiter spent a great deal of time mixing drinks. It took almost 20 minutes to get our check. I’m hoping this was an anomaly and that the bar is usually staffed. It’s a great restaurant. They just seemed to be understaffed for a busy Friday night.

    The lemon chicken on risotto was delicious and the portion was very large. The chopped salad is always one of our favorites. Our water, Jimmy , makes a great cosmopolitan!

    It was our first visit and we will be back! Very authentic Italian experience with the Italian staff and music playing, excellent food from the warm bread with EVOO balsamic and parm, nice wine, our table ordered the scallops and risotto special, chicken fettuccine, shrimp appetizer and bruschetta all was fantastic! We went on a Monday night and it was not busy at all we got a table immediately.

    Our table was not ready when we arrived for our reservation. We had to wait in the bar for 40 minutes. Also we requested a table near the front door because one of our party was handicapped. The table we eventually got was in the back of the restaurant far from the door.
