Don't waste money going a overpriced Italian in gosforth or jesmond. This is how to eat Italian style, easy, fuss free and affordable. Lorenzo is a great guy who knows what normal people want from an Italian cafe. Unpretentious, easy going and welcoming', unlike most places in Newcastle.

My partner and I ate here on 27 January for my birthday having been bowled over by the fantastic reviews it consistently gets. Lorenzo is such a good host, obviously with a passion for creating authentic Italian food. The selection was amazing and the prices were unbelievable. We were impressed to see fresh produce being delivered for the following day...no... More

In Newcastle for the night, my friend and I were craving some good Italian. Looking on Tripadvisor, we found this place. It was out of the way, but had great reviews. We arrived just in time and got the last table. We were surrounded by local Italian patrons in a fantastic little spot. The menu was extensive, the prices cheap,... More

I have been there two weeks ago and I am not use to write reviews but I was really fascinated with the little and traditonal place which is really cheap for the food quality. I have eaten a pizza and a plate of paste of the day and sure, I really want to have the opportunity to coma back again... More

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
