Loosely translated as ‘Sardinian flavours’, this cosy family-run newcomer on Fulham Road nails its regional colours to the mast with a menu that highlights the island’s rustic specialties and native produce. Come here for bowls of spaghetti laced with bottarga (dried mullet roe), malloreddus ‘gnocchi’ with sausage ragù and pecorino or monkfish wrapped in Sardinian air-dried ham (served with sautéed courgettes, chilli and mint). The kitchen also knocks out its share of trattoria staples, from grilled calamari with tangy salmoriglio dressing to seafood risotto and calf’s liver with butter and sage.

True Italian in every sense of the word!

I'm Italian and I must say that for me Sapori Sardi is as good as any of the best restaurants in Italy. Excellent menu with traditional dishes, cooked with fine ingredients and creative zest, jovial staff, cosy and cheerful family like atmosphere. That's as truly Italian as you can get!

I was in Sapori Sardi with a friend on May, the 16th. We ate tegliorini and Zuppa di fregola. The food was sublime. The Wine was excellent. The service was awesome. Finishing with Seadas and Mirto is a must, and we did it. I am sure I will come back.

A Nice restaurant if you like waiting nearly 2h before getting served. Not exagerating! Food was good, lovely staff but not worth the wait.

I really like italian food and in this restaurant i found the best i could expect. Sardinian ham with creamy pecorino cheese and asparagus and poached egg as starter. Very meaty lamb cutlets and delicious grilled sword fish. You can't find something better. The service was great, friendly and attentive at the same time.

Second visit and the food was a wonderful as the first visit. Very fresh ingredients, beautifully presented and very delicious. The place was packed out even on a Tuesday night. They don't do cocktails and service was very friendly albeit a little slow. Wasn't a problem as had a great evening with friends.

Sapori Sardi is quite a nice, small restaurant serving an array of Sardinian and Italian home made food. The service is very friendly, all in the family: the chef is the owner and the waiters his wife and kids. The chef recreates the most loved traditional dishes from Sardinia although I'd love even more traditional food. The restaurant feels relaxed,... More

Let's start with the positive, the food. Squid to start, which was wonderfully cooked, along with a pecorino and ham bruschetta-type starter, both of which were excellent. Two pasta dishes for mains, the Italian sausage ragout and the ravioli stuffed with Swiss chard and pecorino cheese, accompanied by a delightful tomato sauce both were excellent. For dessert, a rich and... More
