Come to our restaurant in the early evening and watch a beautiful sunset while munching on some appetizers like our pan-fried shrimp and sipping on some Italian Sauvignon Blanc. For a main course try our Branzino fish with some sautéed vegetables. Then to finish off a delicious meal and a beautiful night try our Zabaglione with fresh strawberries and a pastry. You will not be disappointed!

Despite the large crowd we were seated right away. We had made reservations in advance. Service was excellent, great wine, and food was delicious! We have been coming here for the past 10 years and great to see there has been no change to friendly service and great quality.

The food was delicious and assistance in ordering was provided to the vegan eater. Service could have been a little more attentive. Eating by the marina is lovely but the ambience in the dining room is only OK.

First time having been there, and as lovers of authentic Italian food, we were actually impressed. It was a last minute, late night availability and they were very accommodating. I would like to go in earlier evening ( 7pm? ) to take in the harbor views too.

This is our hidden gem in Marina del Rey. We have always had exceptional meals here. They never disappoint us. I am from back east and frequently have back east guests (they are very picky about their Italian food). This is our go to spot to bring guests because we know the food will be amazing, the service excellent and the over all experience, wonderful. Our guests are always delighted with the food. The host always greets us and makes us feel welcome. After your first visit, I promise you will return again and again.

This place is so wonderful! The owner is very hands-on and makes everyone feel welcomed! The location is beautiful and the sitting areas are great!
We had a nice Prosecco to start with Caprese and a Cesar! We then ordered two entrees - cacciatore and gnocchi! Both were fantastic especially with a fantastic Tuscan red! We didn’t save room for dessert, but had espresso to finish!
Definitely will be back to this spot!!!

They wouldn’t seat us outside because the vacant table sat 4 people and we were only 2, which I understand for business reasons. It was a little frustrating to eat our meal indoors while that 4 top remained vacant, though.
The reason I am giving lower ratings is because the manager (or he could be the owner) was rude to us and extremely rude to another table who wanted to just buy alcoholic drinks. It’s certainly their business right to refuse to serve only drinks but the tone with which the manager told them was unnecessary and rude.

We sat outside and enjoyed the fresh air and the views. Bravo to Sapori for staying in business throughout the pandemic. The food is delicious and what a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The parking was great even if it was $2.00. Would definitely go back. Seafood is their forte.

The only reason I gave a 4 rating and not a 5 was that the owner was the only waiting
on tables for the first half hour. Been there years ago when it was a different name.

The bread, entre, and bread were excellent!!!

I went for dinner with my parents and my cousin. While my meal was delicious (I had the gnocchi) my parents’ meals were both severely undercooked... the noodles for both of their pasta dishes were not cooked very well. But the service was good and they had a nice wine list.

Disappointing. I went for a special occasion, as I had recalled it being quite good. The food was less than ok. I sent my entree back, which I never do. It was inedible, tasted old. Service was bare bones, with no frills or atrention to the occasion I mentioned multiple times. Sadly, not worth your time or money at this point.

There were no prices on the special menu for Valentine’s Day. It looked like it was a set menu, but when I asked the price, they were all individually priced. There was an elderly member of staff, I think he was the owner, who was constantly shouting at the staff and made us feel very uncomfortable. The staff were very good and are always outstanding.

Night before Valentine’s Day and was very busy, which was fine. Waiter kept attending to table seated after us. Asked for water, never got it. After food was served, waiter never came buy table to check, we weren’t able to order another glass of wine. Only time he came back was to bring check. Disappointing.
