One of the best restaurants in Cape May. Food is always fresh, delicious, and served hot. Staff is very friendly. Make a reservation or you won't get in -- it's always crowded, even in the off-season.

I asked to make my night for my wife special by a simple request by them writing a message to my wife. I simple I love you and they didn’t do it. Also they never told us or even advertised they were a byob.

A lovely BYOB establishment in an old house, situated in a quiet W. Cape May neighborhood. We went on the glowing recommendation of my sister in-law, who had been here many times. We had a 6:15 reservation, and although we did see one or two parties get seated without one, I'm not sure this would be advisable in the summer months. The restaurant was at max capacity the whole time we were there and it's only February! There are many rooms in the "house" where diners are seated. We were seated upstairs at a corner table, sandwiched between two other parties. The only downside here is the noise level and being right on top of your neighboring table; it is neither intimate nor conducive for any sort of conversation. The highlight is the food and service; both excellent. Irina was our server and she was knowledgeable and attentive. Grilled bread and a small antipasto plate were complimentary. The steamed clam appetizer was in a flavorful broth and good for bread dipping. For dinner, I selected a special (there were 3 or 4 dinner specials) of shrimp, crab, scallops and broccoli rabe in a cream blush sauce over penne, and my husband had a menu pasta with sausage, cherry tomatoes and broccoli rabe. Both were delicious and portions were plentiful. Shared dessert of homemade creme brulee and coffee finished off the meal. There were many other selections on the menu we want to try, so a return trip is in our future! There appears to be seating on the front porch area, which would be nice to try in warmer weather.

As usual, Sapore Italiano was very satisfactory. The service was a little uneven, but, considering the time in the season, one expects the service to be a little shaky. I did find that the waiter's accent somewhat difficult to understand. Overall, the experience was what one would expect from a restaurant of this caliber.

Our meals are always consistently delicious at Sapore Italiano! We order something different every time we go, and every time it is wonderful. The prices are just right, and because you can BYOB, it keeps it very reasonable. They serve a complimentary cold antipasto which is a nice touch. This last time, my husband tried the osso buco special over mushroom risotto, and it was yummy. I highly recommend this restaurant,

I went to sapore for new year's eve. I didnt realize it was price fixed but decided to try it anyway. I was pleasantly surprised. The meal was hot , tasty , and fresh! My only complaint was the bread but in all fairness my husband ate the entire basket so each to his own

I was most upset New Years Eve and so was my husband. We have gone to Sepores in the past and loved it!!! We made our reservation in early/mid December as everything in Cape May was filling up and we wanted to make sure we had a reservation since we were traveling. We based our decision based upon their regular menu that was available on line. When we got to the restaurant the waiter said “I’m sorry we tried to call you but the menu is prefixed at 75.00. I was told a message was left. Although they did call no message was left on my phone. And they called me the Friday before New Year’s Eve which would have left me sitting home anyway we opted to stay but I am a vegetarian and there was minimal to no choices for me to eat. It was a lot of money to be rushed out of the restaurant with no choices. So so very disappointed. Unfortunately we have a place in Cape May and we go often. I will not go back again and I am very upset about this. I felt very cheated

We were surprise that their was a $75.00 per person meal. This was the second year in a row that New Year’s eve had a $75.00 per person meal. Last year was at the Washington Inn in Cape May. Both occasions we booked through Open Table. We should have called prior to reservation with Open Table to see if there was a fixed price on New Tear’s eve.

Wow. Was looking for great Italian in Cape May and stumbled upon this on Trip Advisor. It's just a large house with table seating everywhere. The food was amazing, and the service was outstanding (even at 6pm on a Friday night). Only gripe is it's a tad loud if you're trying to have an intimate evening. That however is everyone else's need to talk louder than the other, so it gets loud being it's a house. I had the clams and linguine white, which is my favorite, and top three in all the places I've been (which is a lot). Girlfriend had the eggplant parm which also came over pasta, best she's ever had. Can't wait to go back sometime next season.

Food was outstanding and service was impeccable! I had the bruschetta for an ap and probably the best I’ve ever had. I chose chicken Parmesan for my entree and you could cut it with a fork. Cooked to perfection! Large platter but I ate it all. Highly recommend this gem, and a byob makes it even bette!

We ate here on our recent post-Christmas trip to Cape May. The complimentary antipasto was excellent. We all greatly enjoyed our meals and my children raved that the gnocchi were some of the best that they have had. Our waiter, Marcus, was very good. He was personable and informative.
