The restaurant is perfect for special occasions, private parties, baby showers, and weddings
Overall great experience.
We have been going to Sapori for many years and it is always the best. We took friends and they will now be new customers. A great dinner and lovely ambiance.
Our server, Peno, is the best... He is helpful, friendly, and his suggestions are right on...
We love this neighborhood restaurant. Always good food, cocktail, energy. Paola takes excellent care of us every time.
Sat outside in front of the fire place foos was delish
Service was poor-very inattentive. Slow, we were seated fo 20 minutes before we were acknowledged.
We've been here before and the food is always great and typically the service is good. On Saturday night 2/17, we had terrible service and were mostly ignored, food was still good but service hopefully will improve.
Best Italian restaurant in Newport Beach by far. Hostess, waiter and food were unmatched. Vibe was uplifting. Pace was perfect. Can’t wait to return.
Very disappointing!! We chose Sapori for our Valentine's Dinner. First off we were seated in a table off in the corner of the outdoor patio, and basically were forgotten. The service was fair at best. We chose a bottle of wine, which had to be put in a bucket of ice, since it was too warm to drink. The entrees that we ordered were okay, nothing special - and we were shocked when the bill came and found that one entrée - off the list of Specials for the Evening - was priced at $45!! About twice the price of other entrees and DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT!
Would NOT recommend this restaurant and shall not return!
Tried Sapori for the first time for Valentine's Day. The outside patio is definitely the best ambiance for a meal. Great service and great Italian favorites!
Always great. Been eating here for 20 years! Favorite Italian restaurant.
Great food can't wait to come back. Make a reservation and you will get seated quick if it's busy
They need to work on their service. Two people ordered the same dish but got different side dishes, neither of them were asked which side they would like. Not checked up on through out the evening.
Father-Daughter Dance night dinner. Roberto treated our daughters like princesses.
Great food, very nice environment and very attentive and friendly staff
A relaxing lunch, wonderful ambience and food.
Had a very pleasant experience. Service was excellent, and the food was prepared perfectly.
Consistently great service and food at Sapori. Ever disappoints...
Love this place! Excellent service and wonderful authentic Italian food!
Great standby Restaurant. Food is consistently very good.
Friday casual dinner
Sapori continues to be our favorite go-to restaurant in Newport Beach. Never disappointed.
New Years eve
My fave place to go for old school Italian with a modern cozy feel! The staff is always friendly and the food great! I like that you can go in sweats or dress up! Great for a romantic date or a birthday.
I used to love coming to Sapori when I lived close by. I hadn't eaten at Sapori in a long time. I was disappointed in the quality of the food, the portion size of the carpaccio and the overall dining experience.
Went here with family over Christmas Holiday! We really enjoyed the food & ambience of Sapori...I would go back!
food was brilliant as usual, been coming here for years, and had our company Christmas lunch there, Roberto did a great job in handeling all the different orders, thank you Sapori's.
Without a doubt the best pizza in Newport Beach, but all food is great. Been going here for over 30 years. The best Italian food around.
Excellent service and exceptional cuisine. The patio is my favorite with the fireplace and relaxed ambience.
A lovely time with family celebrating a birthday, it was our second time and did not disappoint.
Sapori is always enjoyable and never disappoints. Wonderful neighborhood ambiance with long time friendly staff. Lively but not noisy, it's always a fun spot to meet friends and enjoy a very nice Italian meal.
Sapori is always excellent. I love the ambiance on the patio.
Been going to sapori for 20+ years and it is always fantastic!
The worst service I’ve ever had. Waited 20 minutes to be greeted by our waiter- no water, nothing. He acknowledged the busy night and then provided brusque impersonal service. While the food was very good we won’t go back. Very overpriced for a mediocre experience. Disappointed in the experience.
Sappori is one of my ' go to ' places in Newport Beach. It's off the schedule of the jet set which makes it nice, as you can have a wonderful meal, with amazing service, yet don't feel rushed or as if your waiter is auditioning for a part on a TV series. It never fails, nor fails to exceed your expectations.
I enjoyed the food it was delicious
I would recommend Sapori for any type of meal or occasion. They are excellent in all
that they do, and in my opinion are an excellent value as well. We've been there quite a
few times and plan on returning fairly frequently
Excellent ambiance and the food was delicious. Tremendous selection of Italiana food.
Service was a little slow this visit unusual for Sapori
