    Sapore never disappoints. Their gnocchi are like pillows and the branzino special was amazing, full of flavor and cooked to perfection. Homemade tiramisu for dessert and capers and eggplant rollitini as appetizers were also delicious. Every visit is a great meal!

    My favorite meal here is their veal piccata. It is a big portion and I always have enough left over for a second meal at home. The place has many rooms so it has a cozy feel.

    The restaurant was very nice as was the waiter, people in front. The restaurant looks like a house, so pretty inside with lots of rooms, larger than it looks. Our waiter was nice, took our order & delivered our food. Food was very good, it was a great choice & we would go back again. I highly recommend Sapore Restaurant. Ohh, it’s a BYOB.

    Appetizer was great and outdoor seating very pretty. The meal fell apart after the appetizer as the outside area became overrun by mosquitoes and gnats! Everyone was slapping themselves. We had to get takeout containers and leave. Food was very good but imagine it would have been better if it weren’t reheated and eaten with plastic silverware in a hotel room after a stop at CVS for Benedryl spray for the welts we had from all the bites. Server said this never happens yet he indicated he was not bothered by the bugs as he was wearing an arm band repellent. If you go don’t eat outside

    Our first visit here. It’s BYOB. Small parking lot behind the restaurant or you can park on the side street. The outside patio looked very inviting to dine. It was a beautiful night out and it was full. We dined indoors, and received excellent service, plenty of staff here, and they are polite and well trained. The quality of food was outstanding. Portions were very large. Plenty to take home. Eggplant Parm was some of the best I’ve had, thin and soft, cooked perfectly. Veal Parm was fork tender and large portion. Interior of the restaurant is nice and tables are not on top of eachother which we appreciated. It’s a quiet restaurant with soft background music, and that was perfect for us, and would also be good for couples or smaller groups. Homemade creme brûlée for dessert was a delicious suggestion from our waiter, and the coffee was very good. Book as far in advance as you are able as it looks as if reservations are sold out most nights during peak times. We will definitely return.

    This was our first time at Sapore Italiano restaurant and was extremely happy with the food, waitress and ease to make reservations. My husband had 3 different gnocchi’s….we personally make them and are particular! Delicious! We started off splitting eggplant rollatini for appetizer…perfect! I had chicken francaise over homemade fettuccini. The chicken was not overly fried, fettuccini so light! We aren’t ones to order dessert but because it was our anniversary we had a cannoli and the frozen lemon cello. Fabulous!!! Will definitely go again!

    We had reservations for 4:45 for 3. We got there a little early and we were seated right away. We ordered our drinks and appetizers and served pretty quickly. The leek potato and crab soup was delicious as was the bruschetta. Our main course was delicious as well. We had the cannolis for dessert. I was my 60th birthday and the staff lit a candle and sang to me. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Make sure to make reservations! Thank you for a delicious meal and the singing!

    Everything they make is in a rose cream sauce ordered shrimp scampi dish and it came out in a rose cream sauce. Cream of crab soup had no flavor and the consistency was like water. Very small portions. This place is so overrated. Would not go again.

    Had a wonderful experience celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday. Nice to see that the ambiance reflected appropriate casual dress by other guests for this white tablecloth restaurant, which is not always the case during the very busy season. Much of the staff came out to join us in singing Happy Birthday, which enhanced the experience. Food was terrific as always. Definitely one of the top restaurants in Cape May.
