Sapori is round the corner from my house and the food is always amazing! Wether you're sitting in or taking away, couldn't recommend this place more.

Visited here yesterday after reading good reviews and I have to say I was blown away at the quality and authenticity of the food. Lorenzo is very friendly and always seems happy. Both our meals were amazing and the taste of real Italy shone through. Can't recommend this cafe enough, this will be a weekly calling point for me from... More

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.

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
