Sapore Italiano is a relaxed Italian eatery known for its tasty bread and hearty cuisine. The restaurant serves everything, from pizzas and salads, to veal scaloppine Marsala and tiger prawns with a basil and white wine sauce.

Try Sapore Italiano's homemade meat lasagna or signature insalata Sapore with greens, chicken breast, raisins and sliced apples in a balsamic vinaigrette for lunch. Sapore Italiano's dinner menu includes irresistible antipasti like carpaccio Veneto with raw beef, shaved Parmesan, arugula, Dijon mustard, olive oil and lemon. The restaurant's rigatoni with ground sausage and vegetarian pizza are both standout dishes. A large wine list includes a nice variety of Italian and Californian wines. Sapore Italiano also serves gluten-free and whole wheat pastas.

Have to admit we didn’t have a great first experience. I asked for a quiet table and we were seated dead center in a noisy restaurant. Started off with a mixed up drink order (beer and Cabernet, not Chardonnay). Then the wrong salads were delivered. Lastly we got the wrong bill! No apologies just craziness. The menu was changed for New Years Eve but not forecast online. Very expensive for ok food and little atmosphere and mediocre waitstaff.

Main course came before the appetizers. Therefore we cancelled the order for the appetizers. It took to long for the food to get to our table, same for several tables. Service just took too long.

Been here many times, always good food. Service level was off tonight, perhaps due to the holidays

Wonderfully prepared home made Italian entrees, attentive service and reasonable prices make Sapore Italiano something of an undiscovered treasure! In the world of "flashier Burlingame Avenue restaurants" Sapore can get a little lost but don't mistake "flash and a scene" for good food at reasonable prices!

Several times when I had dinner at this restaurant the waiter would bring the main course before the appetizers/soup are finished

Food was great as always. Waitress was exceptional even though it looked to us that staff was lacking on a Friday night
