Just landed from out of town. First restaurant visited. Great service, food and atmospheres. Pizza is great - as well as risotto. I had the special which was a ricotta gnocchi with a beef ragu. Simply the best gnocchi I ever had.

Grest Italian restaurant on the main drag in Fountain Hills, Sahuaro Blvd. Easy parking and lots if choices for Italian dishes. I go there for meatballs and spaghetti. My wife likes all their salad dishes. They have a nice outdoor dining area when the weather is nice.

The pizza was great and the food and wine menu was fairly priced. The most expensive steak on the menu was $28 but the rest of the menu was moderately priced. Nice decor and bar area including a patio. Late night entertainment outside. The only negatives were the noise level inside was very high and the dishes were not garnished... More

First night in Phoenix and we tried out this amazing Italian place. Family run. Food was fantastic. We had the wood fired pizza. We will hopefully make it back on this trip.

I travelled to AZ from NY & specifically asked my friend to take me there since I had seen this restaurant on the food network. They had a special on the board, and when we ordered it, the waitress told us they were out of it. Then my friend ordered lasagna. Also out. What Italian restaurant runs out of lasagna?... More

Ginacapp, while it's wonderful hearing we were included on your travel itinerary, I'm sorry to hear that you weren't impressed. Especially since we truly value quality and authenticity throughout our space with our traditional family recipes. It seems like you might've simply caught us during a busy time for which I'm truly sorry. Hopefully, we'll get another chance to share... More

Had a great short rib wrapped in fresh pasta, red sauce and creamy Cheese's. The house Chianti was a great compliment and the fresh wood fired bread is flipping awesome. Top this with the live music of the Kniffin Project and perfect weather on the patio and you have a 5 out of 5 experience. Thank you Sapori 'D Italia... More

We tried this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and so glad we did. We walked in and we seated right away. The service was amazing. Extremely attentive and genuine. We felt right at home.

Went to the Oktoberfest which was a bust and we were starving. Lines too long. We found Sapori on Saguaro avenue by chance. I called and reserved a table for 5 and it was ready when we arrived. I had the most delicious veal parmigiana and the marinara sauce was one of the best I have ever tasted. My cousins... More
