We come to Cape May just to go to this at least six times a year. Being over an hour drive that should let you know how much we thoroughly enjoy the food, atmosphere and service at this restaurant. The best restaurant in Cape May !

We came to Cape May for the Octoberfest Celebration and Sapore Italiano is always a must when in town. Grab your favorite bottle of wine(BYOB) and enjoy the best Italian in Cape May. Great ambiance and great service and even better Italian dishes. Desert menu is 5 star. Always a real treat when in town. Great job Sapore Italiano !!

Great place for simple southern Italian cuisine. If you can get past reservations and the front desk, it is a very enjoyable experience. Sapore is a definite go to for my Italian food fix.

There are a lot of diners that love Sapore, my wife being one of them, but not me. In my opinion, I get better food, friendlier service sans the stupid, feckless masks, and better value at Vincenzo’s Little Italy II in North Cape May. Sorry, but I am not a fan.

Even though it’s off season, the place was packed and somewhat noisy between 7:30 and 9:00. After that, conversational. Excellent food (a terrific Bronzino special) and attentive service. The best Italian Restaurant in the County.

We dine at Sapore Italiano whenever we visit Cape May and it never disappoints. Food and service are top notch. We made a reservation for 7:30 and were seated on time on the outside porch.
For entrees we had Pollo Francese and Linguini alla Pescatore. Both were delicious and served by our waiter Al who provided excellent table service. We also shared a delicious Tartufo ice cream for dessert.
Sapore is also a BYOB, another plus. We look forward to dining there again on our next visit.

It is a very pretty place ,great value & good food.I have been there a few times before. There was a problem with outdoor seating this time. There were no citronella candles on any of the tables and the bugs were uncontrollable. I know this may be something hard to control but that would’ve helped a little.

We were seated early, appreciate that. Ordered ice teas, never written down, too busy to bring it up. Food came quickly, the shrimp Fra Diavlo(4) were a little tough. Prices comparable with a tourist location. Average experience. Don’t know whether I’d go again, due to menu selections.

BYOB restaurant with plenty of outdoor seating. I used Open Table app to make a reservation. Food is good ut the wait for the food to actually come out after ordered was lengthy, about 45 min.The food is really good so it was well worth the wait.

Nicely spaced tables; cordial and efficient waiter and wait staff; food is always consistently great both in taste and quality. Not rushed through the meal and never felt like they were waiting for you to vacate the table. Don’t change a thing .

Our dinner visit, on Saturday, September, 18, 2021 to Sapore Italiano Restaurant, in West Cape May, New Jersey, after our two year absence due to covid, was most enjoyable. As in the past, the offerings especially, the specials, were delicious. Our apps. consisted of eggplant rollatini with a delicate sauce and mussels in a white wine and garlic sauce. My wife commented that her eggplant rollatini was the best ever and I felt the same about my mussels. Our salads ( arugala with parmesan shavings in a lemon vinegarete dressing and Caersar salad were spot on. But, our special entrees of bronzino and veal were terrific! Our dining experience, was enhance by our server, who was most informed and helpful throughout our dinners. One should know that Sapore Italiano Restaurant is a B.Y.O.B. and has sufficient parking.
