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!

Dinner was amazing, it always is. I had the filet and my husband had the pork chop. They were both prepared perfectly. Go try them out. Sit by the water and watch the beautiful sunset and after dinner stroll down the pier and watch the sea lions. I highly recommend.

It was a small patio near the water and a cool breeze.
The service was good with attentive servers throughout the meal.

Our meals were delicious and served quickly.
We chose to have several appetizers--salad, eggplant dish, clams & mussels.
These were satisfying and filling.

It was a lovely afternoon spent which I would recommend to all who like
al fresco dining.

In the day of COVID it is hard to understand the changes imposed upon restaurants. The food was very good for me. My girlfriend was happy yet not excited about her dish. When we wanted to sit in a spot without the sun in our eyes the waiter seamed annoyed. Otherwise that day was good. We left happy and will be back to try another dish.

The food was very good. The location is nice and the ambience was so so. The reason for the three star rating, is the owner/server last night was not the friendliest. Perhaps we were not the right gender, the right race, or part of the click. Nevertheless, we were grateful for a nice dinner.

The owner was rude.. he sat us in the sun.. I asked kindly if we could have another table because I knew the sunset was just beginning and didn’t want to have that much sun on my father because of his eye conditions. He was too rude to explain anything too !! So we left immediately!! Save your Italian experience for somewhere else !

Always a good experience at Sapori. Stefano and Miguel keep things light-hearted, the Prosecco is reasonably priced and the food is great...you can't go wrong! (Wear a mask though, you've been warned!)

Good Italian food, we ordered pretty heavy dishes with a lot of cheese, they do not skimp on the cheese which is great! Cute outdoor area looking at the marina and boats. Desserts were not so great, prob not made in house. Will def come back again!

Best Italian I’ve experienced in a long time. Closest to food and taste and charm of the owner to Italy that I’ve yet to experience in the States.

Sapori Italian Restaurant currently has outdoor dining due to Covid-19 and it's great! They have table umbrellas for shade and your right on the Marina del Rey harbor. The food is real Italian and very delicious. I would highly recommend Sapori Italian Restaurant.

This was my visit to restuarant. I was shocked waiters were not in masks, gloves, regular menu's, and not taking precautions. The service was not great, had to keep asking for sweetener, ice, etc. The food was less than good, our eggplant was not cooked through, the tomatoes in caprese were hard and tasteless. The food was definitely way below what we paid for. It was nice setting outside but overall would not recommend this restuarant.

The food was outstanding. Everything was great. Nice ambiance and view. The service from Erick was fantastic. He was very attentive and made sure everything was great. The owner came by as well to make sure that everything was going well. We felt very pampered. And did I mention the food? Excellent.

Love this place! The food is delicious and the service is unmatchable. The only “complaint” is that it gets a little loud and gets rough to hear the other person talk.
