First off call ahead for reservation. We went on a Sat while on on a weekend trip, and although we did not have to wait for a table, the greeter ( one of three waitresses) stressed that we should have called ahead. Also only water and soft drinks are available, so if you want wine BYO. We found it odd... More

The owner-chefs are two brothers from Sicily (Rosario and Nuncio Incorvaia) who prepare Italian food exquisitely with traditional recipies. We live on the island, and had passed their restaurant frequently on the way home to the West End, so we dropped in for lunch yesterday. Sapori offers $10 lunch specials which include salad (very fresh and crunchy, with balsamic vinegar... More

The service was very good and the food average. I had the gorganzola and it was good, very rich and creamy. The Anti Pasta platter was awesome. My husband loved his ravioli dish. The soft drinks were very fresh and had no city water tastes. It was nice peaceful experience as the restaurant was very quiet.

We returned again in November, after discovering Sapori in April. We enjoyed the flavors of the dishes we ordered and the crusty Italian bread with a delicious house salad and house Italian dressing. This time we enjoyed Gorgonzola Pasta and Ravioli with 3 cheeses. We would definitely return again. The service is good. It is a small place and reservations... More

Definitely will be back. Loved the spinach manicotti, bruschetta, and rustica pizza. Refreshing to find real Italian food on the island!

Had supper on a Thursday night and it was enjoyable from salad to dessert. Service was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without being pesty. I had the cannelloni di salsicca, pasta filled with their own sausage and ricotta, and covered with their ragu meat sauce, and it's been added to my favorites list. My wife had the bistecca Allan pizzaiola.... More

Always terrific. Our guests always want to go back every time they visit. Bring your own wine. Wait staff is very accommodating. This location is a little off the beaten path but easy to find. If it was on the Sea Wall it would be to crowded to get in.

Good Italian food, but the restaurant needs a lot of work to make it comfortable. Went with friends for a weeknight dinner; it was only half full, but extremely noisy. Hard surfaces everywhere! Had to almost shout across the table, and when another table had loud laughter or loud child, we could not hear each other. It needs sound baffles... More
