    Service is excellent. When we checked in we wanted a different table and they found the perfect table. (A little more than a month ago we met some friends there for dinner who we had not seen in over 9 years. It was a wonderful experience that night also). The Sapori salad is the best. Many times we will order and pick up the Sapori salad and take it home at the rare ocassion when we are grilling at home. Back to dining at Sapori, Excellent service. The veal and the fish dinners including the pasta sides are outstanding. Hands down, the best Italian restaurant in Newport Beach. Dave
