    Everything was superb. The homemade lobster raviolis were absolutely delicious. Always a wonderful experience at Sapori’s.

    As usual the cocktails and food at Sapori are excellent. We shared a Cesar salad which was wonderful; just the right amount of dressing. I ordered Oso Bucco with risotto and my husband ordered Lasagne, both meals were excellent. The service was very good, given it was Valentine's Day and dinner hour.
