We have visited three times over the past few months and the food has been excellent every time. The food is very fresh with lots of flavour. Lovely service and excellent value for money. Definitely worth a visit! We will return again soon.

This is now the third fourth time we have eaten here and I am very glad to report that the very high standards are being kept up The only really sad thing is that the position means no-one is aware that there is a restaurant here as there is no passing trade! They deserve to succeed and I am very... More

Can't believe how over the top the reviews are on here, such is the way nowadays it seems. The archway area is difficult to find quality cuisine, you have the ubiquitious pizza and sloppy joe style cafes on Holloway and Junction rd to the souless chains up in Highgate village. This restaurant held such promise (if the reviews on here... More

The description of Saporia as "a new concept in London" sounds more pretentious than is actually the case for a simple neighbourhood restaurant serving homespun food. But it's homespun food of a quality that is familiar in Italy but not really in London, so in that sense they have a point. The whole set-up is a delight if you are... More

This place serves great food and offers the truly great friendly Italian service you would expect. On a visit on a Sunday afternoon, we were served with a beetroot risotto, tomato pasta and a really delicious sardine and buttered onion concoction from the deli-counter. All three plates were incredibly tasty and we were blown off our socks when we realised... More

Really worth a visit! Very nice and friendly atmosphere, excellent quality authentic italian food at a reasonable price. All members of staff are Italian and they manage to recreate a corner of south Italy in London, just 2 min walk from Archway underground station. Make sure you do not miss the patisserie/desserts!!
