    We come every year and are never disappointed. I had the seafood bisque and the table shared fried calamari, brusetta and mussels. All were delicious. I had the salmon over spinach with roasted (to perfection) potatoes. The others had the seafood with linguine, seafood risotto and the eggplant parm. All were yummy. The cappuccino was rich and creamy and the tartufo was different but still good. Can’t wait till next time.

    Dining at Sapore is a tradition in my family every time we're in Cape May. Food is fantastic and being a BYOB is a huge plus. Service is good. They really work hard especially in the high summer season.

    We have been coming here for years. It's always been a must do. Food has always been on point. This time was a little different. After paying the bill and leaving a 20% tip the hostess had the nerve to come to our table count out the money in front of us and ask " are you sure you don't want to give more money". I found it rude and unjustified. Left a bad taste and we will not be going back anytime soon, if ever.

    The atmosphere and meal were both very very good. We dine at all the fine dining restaurants in Cape May. We were hoping for a traditional Italian meal, and that we had! The service left much to be desired. We were rushed to order, our waiter loomed over us most of the night including the 40 minutes we waited for our entree. We would like to go back but service must improve.

    They knocked it out of the park. Great service and a nice sized portion. One thing I noticed is they are not cheap on the meat portions. Most Italian restaurants just add more noodle. Sapore adds more meat. I appreciate that. Great time!

    Food was delicious. I had flounder with crab. Crab was many large lumps, not shredded crab with filler. Amazing. My wife had gnocchi, which she enjoyed very much. Seafood bisque was also delicious. Restaurant was packed, with many satisfied eaters.

    I have to say we were very disappointed. We have been here several times before and it was good. This time not good. First off they did away with the small antipasto they used to give you while you were waiting for your dinner. The calamari appetizer was like rubber. One of the worst we have ever had. I had the veal special. It was nothing to write home about. Very blah and nothing special. My husband had the pasta special. He said it was just OK. Not worth the $40. Even the tiramisu was that good. Service from the kitchen was extremely slow. We waited for our dinner for quite sometime. If it wasn’t for the atmosphere outside the whole experience would have been disappointing. We will have to think twice about ever going here again.

    We visited last night at 8:15. Having been there before, we were expecting a great experience. We were seated right away. When we gave our orders we were told that they were busy and it might take awhile. They no longer do the complimentary peppers as the used to. We never heard from our waiter until our food arrived ONE HOUR later. And one entree had the wrong sauce. They took it back & just poured some red sauce over the white. This was a Monday night in August. Sorry to say, we will think twice about visiting on our next trip.

    Group of 12 people came in very close to our table. Asked to move to a table which was open in the corner away from the group to avoid close contact. Waiter basically said there was no “COVID IN THE ROOM” Being nurses we found this response to be one of an uneducated person and also one that lessened our request to move Had we not ordered we would have left

    We come to Cape May each summer. We have our favorite restaurants that we frequent and we always try to go somewhere different as well. Sapore has been on our list to try for several years. Had high hopes as we had always heard good things. We were so disappointed. We had an 8:30 reservation which we were seated for promptly. All down hill from there. Not given the specials menu. Asked the waiter for it. Thought he went to get it, but he only reappeared almost 10 minutes later asking for our order. We still hadn’t seen the specials. Salads took over 30 minutes to come. Asked after them after about 20 minutes and was told the kitchen was backed up. (At this point the dining room we were in was half empty.) After eating our salads, we sat with empty salad and bread plates for 15 plus minutes until anyone cleared the table while at least 5 staff members stood around conversing. Main course was at least another 15 minutes and entrées did not come out together. So hungry at this point that we each began to eat when we individually got our food. The only prompt service was the bill. We were asked “can I bring the check or did you want to see a dessert menu” when we weren’t even half through our entrées. I asked if there was anything gluten free on the dessert menu and told “only the lemon sorbet, I think.” When I asked do you “know”, I was then told there was crème brûlée as well. At this point we were so frustrated with the service, we said no to dessert. Bill was at my husband’s elbow as he was still eating. In the meantime, another table order dessert and there was another gluten free option I wasn’t told about. Again, so disappointed. The food, other than the outstanding bread, was only average. The poor and incredibly slow service made the entire experience unenjoyable. With so many place to eat in Cape May there is no reason to go here.

    We went to this restaurant to celebrate my fiance's birthday and we had a great time! The food was all amazing and the staff was friendly. We got seated immediately when we arrived for our reservation. My only complaint was that it took a while to get our meal (overall there for 2.5 hours total) but it was well worth the wait when the food arrived. Everything was so good! We had calamari, eggplant parm, the bronzino special, and creme brulee for dessert and everything was perfect! We couldn't decide which meal was better because they were both sooo good. Our waitress was awesome as well and even had the staff sing happy birthday to my fiance during dessert. Definitely will be returning!

    The server was very nice. However the table was too small for 4 people and we were stuck in the back next to a wall and the entire time we felt like we couldn’t move. Previously the food was delicious, this time it was ok. Personally We won’t be in a hurry to go back.
