The food was amazing! Best Italian food we’ve ever had in Cape May and we’ve been coming for over 20 years.

Never a disappointment. Food is fresh and tastefully prepared, without exaggeration in flavors-light/delicate. Calamari are dusted, not heavily coated. The complimentary antipasto is a welcome delight. Bronzino is superb. Homemade tiramasu is far superior . Thanks for the attentive service as well.

Starting the New Year right with a delicious dinner at Sapore’s
Gnocchi Sorrentina were delicious and hubby had capellini with crabmeat. Love the Victorian house for dining

The food and atmosphere were outstanding. The service, not great. Not sure if our waiter was new, but we waited about 15, 20 minutes for him to take our drink order and bring glasses for our wine. After requesting a soda for my daughter, I had to repeatedly remind him, only for him to come back after my 2nd time asking to say the machine was down. Then another 10 min. To get her a lemonade instead. But the food was amazing and we will be back in the future...just hope the service improves.

Probably the best restaurant in Cape May, Sappore Italiano never disappoints. The Rack of Lamb, Capellini Positano, Shrimp Scampi and all the Veal dishes are all recommended. The setting, layout, staff and overall ambiance are to be commended.

The food was not good. Sauces tasted like they came out of a jar.

Fine. That is how I would describe the dinner. We started with Fried Calamari which was overcooked & very chewy. Our entrees were just fine, not great, not terrible. We "forgot" the leftovers at the table cause honestly, it wasn't worth bringing with us.

Food was excellent as always. I just wish the waiter wasn't so overwhelmed with so many tables not to pay attention ours. After our dinner was served the waiter never came back to our table until 10-15 minutes after we were done eating. Didn't ask how our meal was or if we needed anything else. Our drinks were empty. A+ food though!

We LOVE it here! They have hands down the best italian food in Cape May, you can never go wrong. I always get the gnocci sorrentino, and it is always amazing! They also give you great service, and don’t rush us. 5 stars.

Room was so dark we couldn’t read the menus. Asked waiter to turn up lights and he was not happy. As soon as we put down a fork they were trying to clear the table. We couldn’t talk for fear of dish disappearing, Finally we told,them to leave us alone. We finished up and said no coffee no dessert let’s just leave. Went to visit elderly family for a dinner day after Christmas and what a mess. ENTREE was also mediocre. Table for four was so small we couldn’t fit anything. We asked for a bit larger and was told,no.
WILL NOT RETURN. THIS WAS OUR SECOND VISIT AND LAST.

Our dining experience on Christmas Eve, a very busy night was excellent from beginning to end. We were seated immediately, our server Besnik was prompt, courteous & our meals were brought out as ordered. Food was outstanding. The hostess was on top of the turn around with tables. I watched her empty, clean & set up within minutes to seat the next customer.

Sapore is an institution in Cape May, however, there are far better Italian restaurants in Cape May. Food is okay - nothing was particularly memorable, and most were served warm vice hot/just cooked. A forgettable meal in an unforgettable town.

Our server Emir was a lot of fun and very attentive and knowledgeable. Give him a 10.

Fruiti di mare appetizer was disappointing. I asked for no mussels, and the waiter offered extra clams. Although it was delicious, there were no scallops and the calamari was overcooked and too chewy.
All entree portions were huge and delicious.
The chicken saltimboca was overloaded with cheese, but otherwise very good.

Desserts were fantastic. Choc mousse Limoncello Flutes and cannolis all excellent.

We had a group of 5. Consensus on the whole was 8/10

We will be back. Hopefully when the Loud Family seated next to us is away!
