Very relaxing spot to come grab a drink w/friends, family, or just to meet new people. The menu changes infrequently enough that you can try various options. The pizza is also a great option as well.

We visited while in the area on vacation last week over memorial day weekend with a groupon for a family dinner. First let me say the service was excellent, the dining area we sat in was not very big and they had some seating outside in the front of the restaurant. Inside they do have a tv on around the...

Sapore d'Italia is a great restaurant, given the price point. Casual, relaxed. Very good food, attentive service, and a nice price point to make it a regular place for dinner or lunch.

Oscar, the owner puts his personal best in this very dependable Italian restaurant . The menu offers many very basic yet delicious Italian dishes. My fav is the fresh whole clam linguini vongale with a perfect blend of spice and garlic . Always have had excellent service. Solid reasonably priced wine list. Walking home from the Braddock metro ?

My husband and I grabbed a last minute dinner here - decided to sit outside. Very attentive service and the food was yummy. The prices were reasonable and good selection of wine. This is a neighborhood gem!

I've been to Sapore at least 4 or 5 times over the past few years, and I've never been disappointed. The portions aren't oversized, nor is the food overpriced. It's not fancy or frilly, so those looking for an upscale dining "experience" should go somewhere else. If you want good food at a reasonable price though, Sapore is a good... More

This is a small neighborhood spot in the Del Ray section of Alexandria. I like to drop in for pizza or pasta. Oscar will make sure the pizza crust is extra crispy or the pasta has extra garlic. Bar and wine list is small, but adequate for a casual bite. Patio is nice on warmer days! Casual spot worth a... More

Our kitchen is being remodeled so we've been eating out a lot. We've been eating here almost every night lately. And why not? The food is really great! Dinner for two $50 Sun-Wed plus a bottle of wine! Great service too!

We had a Groupon to use the place, and the waiter was....well, let's say, very busy. The place for a Wednesday night was busy. It looked mostly like neighborhood traffic and this should tell you something. The food was served fresh and it was tasty, and the wine list is not big but you can find a decent red wine... More

We arrived around 6:00 pm and were seated immediately. That's about all that I can say and be positive. The server was barely civil and slow hardly describes the service; the dinner salad arrived before the appetizer, the sauce was without seasoning and other people came in after we did and left before, I'm hard pressed to understand why it...
