The restaurant is perfect for special occasions, private parties, baby showers, and weddings
Great place. Service was just right, and the veal was outstanding. The outdoor covered patio was very relaxed. I will be back often.
Good traditional Italian menu with a California freshness, like the Caprese salad with three colors of heirloom tomatoes. Do come hungry; the portions are large. Nice open room with indoor and outdoor (covered) seating, and excellent service. We all enjoyed!
First time at this restaurant in many years. Expected much more. The food was very ordinary. Service was pretty good. Overall, not interested in returning or recommending.
Food was very good. Server was a bit neurotic He tried to rush us out of the place at times, despite us telling him we planned to order more food and the table next to us staying over half an hour after they closed their bill. We ordered a bottle of wine, and the man at the table next to us felt it necessary to bombard us with his unsolicited opinion of our selection. That’s not the restaurant’s fault, but he said that he was a regular so that should tell you something. We ordered the capellini and veal piccata, both of which were delicious, as well as tiramisu they brought for my birthday. Basically, the food was wonderful and this is a great place if you can stand having to interact with obnoxious people.
Great food and appetizers 👍👍
Delicious great service. Lovely place
We have continued to come back to this restaurant because of its consistent quality of Italian food. They always have wonderful specials.
The waiter was very kind but maybe too busy to check out table.
we had a marvelous time and enjoyed our delicious meal
My guests were delighted with the atmosphere, the food and the service and will return, I am sure. I loved being secure in the fact that they would have a wonderful experience. Thank you.
Piano is a super server and the hostess is very helpful...
Great experience, fantastic food
Great meal, service and Ambiamce
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.
