Needing somewhere for a latte for me and a late lunch for my 18 year old son, I didn't have high hopes of finding anywhere convenient with good latte and food. But I spotted this lovely Sapori Cafe and easily found a free parking space among all the Permit Only Parking and decided to give it a go. There were... More

To explain just how amazing Sapori is I would like to state for the record that I have pretty much ran home to write this review....which on a stomach full of hearty Italian food is not fun. I never score places full marks because it's impossible to get everything right— Sapori Cafe achieved the impossible tonight. Don't be put off... More

Third time I have visited and each time had the pizza, this time was calzone, tastes of Italy unlike the messed around deep pan, stuffed crust, over filled UK/USA versions elsewhere. Verdict is excellent and if you want to taste real Italian food, sensibly priced, this is it.

Great food at very affordable prices. Lorenzo the owner and chef is really friendly and always takes time to talk to us (as we come every few weeks). Highly recommend Saporis. There is also a big menu for a small cafe.

I chose this place as a visitor to Newcastle using ratings on tripadvisor and I am so glad I did. We had calamari and mixed anti pasta for starters. The calamari was served in a tomato garlic and chilli sauce that was out of this world! My mouth is watering just remembering it now... We both had tomato based pasta... More

Went for a quick lunch from work and was greeted by a lovely Italian girl with a friendly smile. I was looking at the dishes they had prepared and she asked if I would like her to describe each dish, which she did and i picked a rigatoni with bollinaise with ham and peas to which she added fresh Parmesan....

I love this place. It's a tiny Jem tucked into my neighbourhood. Their food is really good, but the desserts are amazing. Their tiramisu is out of the world and they have this Black Forest cake which deserves all te praises. It's run by the loveliest people. Always smiling and cheerful. Great place to just hang out for a while.... More
