I've been to this restaurant many times, the food is delicious and the service is always friendly. My favorite dish is the Rigatoni Rustica, but I have tried other dishes that have also been yummy. The atmosphere is lively, a great place to celebrate a meal with friends or family!

For a few of my group they had been to restaurant several times. They felt that food was not as carefully prepared as before. The specialty dish with breaded chicken stuffed with prosciutto was disappointing as the chicken was overcooked and dry. The ravioli with soinach/cheese tasted almost entirely of unseasoned spinach. The veal marsala was very good, but accompanying... More

I have been dining here for years but my last visit, some four months ago, was disappointing and I wondered about the service and if they had changed chefs. It turns out my last visit was an anomaly. The service was great and the food was as it has always been, delicious. I had capellini, minestrone and carpaccio. All were... More

I recently had an excellent lunch at Sapore. The bread was delicious andthe chicken sandwhich was very tasty. The service was both efficient and friendly. It did take a few trips around the block before I could find a parking space, however.

Terrific little place on "The Ave". Friendly environment awaits you as you pass through the doors. The bar is cozy and the bartender is generous. The menu is complete from pizza to fine entries. Elio, the owner, is present through most of the evening, checking in on your satisfaction. After a few visits, the menu can become tired, but the... More

Loved the atmosphere, and the food was off-the-charts good. Great wine selection, too. Try the risotto! Will definitely come back here.

The location and restaurant itself is very nice. Beyond that it was a very big disappointment. Beginning with the staff our experience was poor. We ordered several app's, but the bruschetta was by far the most uneventful. I believe the bread is that of a freeze and bake. Texture and density is bad. The bottoms were burned showing us it...

We were at Sapore for dinner on a Saturday night and although the food was very good and the service also, the house was full and it was quite noisy. Had to really raise your voice to have a conversation. The meals were plentiful and tasty. The lamb shank special would fall off the bone and melt in your mouth.... More

I was on call at work and just finished - I walked in approximately an hour before closing. Two older gentlemen speaking Italian were sitting at the bar enjoying wine, food and having a great time with the staff and owner. A friend and I sat at the bar and started with some great wine (after some suggestions from Brianna).... More
