I live around the corner and always enjoy my food from here. I often take away, but you can take your own bottle to enjoy with your delicious food. This place provides quality food and is far to cheap. I would recommend this place to anyone.

If you are looking for Dean Martin giving it "Volare" over the ubiquitous red table cloths dressed in white linen and adorned with Jacobean silver napkin rings with volcanic table water sourced from deep ocean vents at £450 a bottle then i am sure there are a million places more than happy to relieve you of your money for a...

After a disastrous meal at Marco 'stockpot' Whites on the Friday I consulted Trip Advisor to look for a good Italian for a Saturday night meal. Number 8 of nearly 1000 restaurants in Newcastle was Sapori Café. I phoned and booked a table! The cab dropped us off in what can only be descried as a 'dodgy location'. The appearance... More

Came here with my friend on a sunny Friday. We got a pasta and pizza and starter to share. The portions are good and the ingredients are so fresh! It's really friendly and it's the best Italian I have tasted. Will be back this week !!!

The Sapori Café is an unassuming little café in Sandyford producing delicious pasta at absolutely unbeatable value. Gf and I visited Sapori on a sunny Friday afternoon for some lunch to reacquaint ourselves with the place having visited a long time ago for some takeaway. We had previously been impressed with the meatballs and penne pasta we had taken away... More

Best pasta I've had in Newcastle, had the crab ravioli. Huge portions and so cheap! Very friendly service. Would definitely go again.

Pavel Srnicek says this award is well derserved. He has enjoyed eating here for the last 12 years, in fact since it opened. He says you will always enjoy the best home made Italian food cooked by the owner Lorenzo. He says it is as good as anywhere in the world including Italy where he lived for 3 years. Delicious...

My favourite place for Italian food. The portions are very generous, and every mouthful packed with flavour. The homemade tiramisu is INCREDIBLE. The staff are really lovely and friendly and you can bring your own wine!

The Mrs and I were looking for a good Italian meal one night and found this place on Tripadvisor (where else?), and it literally blew us away. We've been to most of the cheap Italians in Heaton/Jesmond and this instantly became our favourite. Firstly the food is amazing. I had amazing potato skins, which were really small, crispy and beautifully... More
