Sapori Italian Restaurant began with one simple idea, create a comfortable environment where families can come and enjoy authentic Italian food. Sapori by definition means “Flavors.” Sapori’s concept is to reintroduce simple, flavorful, authentic Italian foods. True Italian food isn’t supposed to be complicated and is often improperly prepared! The Italian culinary experience began at home with family and friends coming together at the table and enjoying natural foods and tradition.

At Sapori, we strive to offer our guests the same experience. You can go anywhere and get a dish of pasta smothered in sauce and cheese but once you experience Italian made better… you will never go back! At Sapori, Chef Salvatore has assembled a menu of fresh flavors with the best ingredients. His classic Italian recipes have been perfected at his own restaurant in Italy and are now being shared with you at Sapori.

Very friendly and attentive wait staff. Even though one of my favorite dishes is no longer on the menu, the chef was willing to make it for me.

Absolutely loved our dinner! The food was beyond EXCELLENT!!! The atmosphere is happy and modern with a touch of Italian charm. Don’t skip the gelato for dessert. You will feel full at the end of your meal, but get the gelato anyway! Service was friendly and attentive!

I heard this was a great place to have a business dinner. I was able to make reservations online by clicking the button on their home page. The staff was great and friendly. The food was fantastic and timely. I will recommend Sapori Italian Restaurant to friends and family.

I was disappointed in food choices! We were very pleased with ambience and service! I was entertaining friends for the first time and his steak was tasty but tough! We had a nice lunch previously but this was our first visit for dinner ! Too pricey for quality and choice!

First off once we saw your restaurant website we were hooked! So we went to your website and made our reservation for the same day. And within seconds our reservation was confirm. And once we were inside your wonderful restaurant, it was even better then your website! Your friendly staff, your menu. The food and wine from beginning to end, made the two of us very happy. And we have let some others know that they too need to book your restaurant soon! So thank you, so much for our GREAT DATE NIGHT. GJ

Small portions for the price. Everything is a la carte. Glasses of wine were less than 1/3 full while costing $9-12. Wait staff was fair. Although the food was pretty good, there are many Italian restaurants in the area that offer much more. We will not be back.

We arrived on time for Open Table reservation. We were seated within minutes of our arrival. We waited 20 minutes with no service, no water, no drink orders, no one even knew we were there. My husband had to go to the front desk and ask for a waiter. They were very apologetic along with our assigned waiter. It was very busy it felt as if they were short staffed. I felt like we waited too long for everything to arrive. The food was very good however I think next time I wouldn't go at peak time, 7p.m.

The three day late Valentine Day date for my wife and me was spoiled by having our bruschetta appatizer and main course arriving at the same time; we felt rushed out by the staff. If this is the case our fix is simpler -TO NEVER RETURN !
Our food was fantastic and the restaurant is very classy and attractive. Too bad all this was ruined by such poor service and what should have been a happy experience.
A very disappointed former customer.

I’ve been to Sapori a few times, and this was our best experience yet. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The waitress was very friendly and very knowledgeable on the menu. She made wine recommendations based on our preferences. When asked one dish vs. another, she explained the dish and what people prefer. Food overall was very good and we had a great time.
