Sapore Italiano is a relaxed Italian eatery known for its tasty bread and hearty cuisine. The restaurant serves everything, from pizzas and salads, to veal scaloppine Marsala and tiger prawns with a basil and white wine sauce.

Try Sapore Italiano's homemade meat lasagna or signature insalata Sapore with greens, chicken breast, raisins and sliced apples in a balsamic vinaigrette for lunch. Sapore Italiano's dinner menu includes irresistible antipasti like carpaccio Veneto with raw beef, shaved Parmesan, arugula, Dijon mustard, olive oil and lemon. The restaurant's rigatoni with ground sausage and vegetarian pizza are both standout dishes. A large wine list includes a nice variety of Italian and Californian wines. Sapore Italiano also serves gluten-free and whole wheat pastas.

Had a reservation on Valentine’s Day that I had made many hours prior to arriving for our dinner. Couldn’t even get past the giant line of people that were cramped in the doorway to talk to a host. When I finally forced myself ahead he said it was going to be a 30 minute wait. We left.

Had to wait a bit but it was Valentine's Day. Great Waiter and great food.

Location is perfect on Burlingame Ave.

Check it out for good Italian.

So disappointed. Lunch crowd was small, yet the service was terrible. Waiter acted like he was doing a favor waiting on us. Lunch prices a bit high as well.

Have to admit we didn’t have a great first experience. I asked for a quiet table and we were seated dead center in a noisy restaurant. Started off with a mixed up drink order (beer and Cabernet, not Chardonnay). Then the wrong salads were delivered. Lastly we got the wrong bill! No apologies just craziness. The menu was changed for New Years Eve but not forecast online. Very expensive for ok food and little atmosphere and mediocre waitstaff.

Main course came before the appetizers. Therefore we cancelled the order for the appetizers. It took to long for the food to get to our table, same for several tables. Service just took too long.

Been here many times, always good food. Service level was off tonight, perhaps due to the holidays
