We went there for birthday dinner. I had Gnocchi Di Patate Al Gorgonzola, really tasty just like home made. very inviting and warmth environment. The attention is excellent but waiter was a little slow on taking our order.

We found this place in downtown Burlingame and we were not disappointed. We came for authentic Italian and that's what we enjoyed. My husband ordered rigatoni with sausage and I ordered a vegetarian pasta. We shared these two dishes after our caprese salad. We would not order the caprese again. No heirlooms and its July. And this dish is very... More

The food is good, and the space is nice. The prices aren't fantastic, but the lunch menu is not bad. If you're in the mood for some good Italian food, it's a good place to go.

We accidentally found this restaurant while we were in town for a wedding shower. We were walking in Burlingame on a Friday night (without any reservations) and hoping for a spot in a decent restaurant. While reading the street menu, we happened across the proprietor, Elio, and were asking him about that night's specials. The restaurant was crowded and we... More

My wife and I have been to Sapore many times and have always had excellent meals with friendly, efficient service. This time was not much different, except for the following changes: 1) the antipasto was much smaller than what it used to be, making it not a great value, 2) the waiter told us there was no wine bottle list...

We were a group of 10 people looking for a nice meal on a Saturday evening - we were in town for a trade show and were staying at an airport hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised by this delightful street in Burlingame, and the restaurant itself is nested among other interesting retail and other dining options. Sapore had everything... More

I'm a gnocchi connoisseur I only search out Italian restaurants that have it on their menu. Sapore was so impressive with great service amazing food and amazing ambiance that it's a must visit. The owner visited our table frequently and was very personable. ....stop on and you will not be disappointed, I promise.

My wife and I were given a gift certificate for this restaurant and it was a gift well received. I ordered my litmus test meal for an Italian restaurant, the Veal Scaloppini, and it was very good. The only drawback was that the sauce was a bit watery and not as thick as I am used to it. My wife... More

My porcini linguine tasted like burnt garlic and it was dry. not cool for a $20 dish. My daughter's ravioli was al dente. The Pinot grigio tasted cheap (no brands are mentioned on the menu), the dessert was so-so - a hazelnut mousse dish. Maybe the cook was having an off night? I can't take the chance though- too expensive... More
