Lorenzo puts his all into the food in this low key, friendly, authentic Italian cafe, My partner and I have been for many years and will continue to do so. We love the hearty cooked breakfast and a coffee before 11am for £4.95. Many times after work we will pop in for dinner, it's also BYOB which makes a fantastic... More

We heard nothing but raves about Sapori Cafe, and stopped in for lunch a few days ago to see whether the praise was well-deserved - and it was! Sapori is definitely tucked out of the way, but it is worth hunting down even if you need to drive to get there, plenty of parking nearby. There are but a few... More

This is a relaxed cafe with high quality authentic Italian food. The prices are low but at the same time the for peons are small. I thought my primavera pasta was good. If the restaurant owner is reading this, I would suggest the option of large portion sizes at a higher price. Also when I went there, I asked if... More

The general formula for getting a top tripadvisor rating, as demonstrated by this place and quay ingredient appears to be: don't promise too much, deliver surprisingly good food with personable service and charge very little. The owner? /Manager/ chef came out from the kitchen behind the counter to check for himself that we were enjoying our meal which is a... More

By caring about what he serves, Lorenzo puts his heart on a plate. Wholesome , tasty beautiful food. We had 3 courses, my husband said his goats cheese starter was like a main course and wonderfully tasty, and I had potato skins with a piping hot tomato and chilli dip, mmmm. For mains I had the prawn risotto and my... More

Went over to Newcastle from Liverpool to pick our daughter up from university and had lunch at Sapori - very glad we did. Not flash or fancy, it's all about the brilliant food, friendly service, and exceptional value for money - took some more home for my tea. Luckily my daughter has 2 years left in Newcastle, so we will... More

Me and my partner have been eating here non-stop for 9 months. Lovely food, friendly staff, informal and relaxed atmosphere. I never go to expensive Italian restaurants anymore, Sapori serves better food at better value. I introduced my colleagues to this cafe and I will pick up food for them on a regular basis and they all agree the food... More
