a diamond in the rough

The restaurant has a charm from being unpretentious, serving a straight-forward menu, promptly and deliciously. Charming service and a great chef. And, it's "cheap as chips".

I went back to Sapori after a few weeks for another enjoyable night. It was a lovely surprise to find the place has been decorated with lovely Italian features wallpaper! It gave the place a cosy and a classy look. Well done Sapori

If you want good quality authentic Italian food, the you should get yourself to Sapori Cafe. The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is delicious. And if you don't have time to eat in, you can take away!

I've been 3 times now, it is such wonderfully simple place. Go to the fridge grab a can of Italian blood orange-aide. Check out the pasta dishes ask what they are, they all sound great many are vegetarian. Pick one they're all really good, or so it seems or get a pizza they are rich with the sauce on a... More

This café is tired, old fashioned and unkempt, BUT this place is great for when you fancy something really, really good for lunch. We went off-spec one afternoon and it was great. Lots of choice and everything that came out looked spot on and what we were served by the friendly and accommodating owner was delicious. Portion sizes are big... More

Sapori's is not glamorous, it’s not high class, it does not pretend to be it’s just superb food brought to you by an attentive waitress or happy friendly owner. Having eaten here many times over the past few years I can say with hand on heart that I have never been disappointed in the slightest. I love the Goats cheese... More

I love a nice rustic place which doesn't look like much but then wows me with fantastic food. I thought that would be what Saporis would be like, based on the reviews. It's just a cheap plate of food, heated up to order but pre-cooked so that the pasta has gone soggy and the tomato sauce on my place was... More

Often used to pop in with a friend who had an office close by, food always reasonably priced and always to a really good standard. If the decor was more up,to date it would be a little diamond but.....! Perhaps the prices would go higher too. So good honest Italian food.

Wow, what can I say. Sapori isn't the most glamorous cafe you'll ever go in but the food is really, really something! A friendly owner took our order and brought our food out quickly. I can't believe how cheap it was considering the portion size and quality of the ingredients. We asked to take desert home with us, the was... More

Having seen that this cafe is ranked so highly on trip advisor my friend and I decided to visit for lunch today. The exterior and interior is admittedly, initially slightly off putting, however the food and service more than make up for this. There seems to be a good amount of choice on the menu, and we both opted for... More
