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
Very good Italian food - and our waiter Oscar was pleasant and efficient and also made a great recommendation on the pasta dish
Great food and wine 🍷. Noisy, though. Lovely staff.
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!
Delicious locally owned authentic Italian food. Delicious raviolis, salads, and meat dishes.
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
