Great location for an authentic taste of Italy on Fitzroy Street. A good range of entrees and antipasti, the mains were delicious and fresh. The service was excellent. The sunset was an extra benefit of the location.

Finding a place to park around here takes some effort, so we were slightly late. We made prior reservations and Lex gave us a warm welcome. Service was impeccable, delicious starters, entrees and dessert... We will be back and also recommend

Great little restaurant in St Kilda Very good entrees, pasta was a little under cooked although it's was well flavored but the pork belly and the rocket salad was very good. Well worth the visit

Difficult to leave here after a very enjoyable light lunch. A calamari salad with glass of passable house red here is $20. Service was excellent and the vinaigrette was magnificent.

We had a great night out - Saturday night (few weeks ago now) and the place was packed but we had our own room for a 50th. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent company. Sapore gave us a night to remember.

I really don't have the words to describe the quality of the food I was fortunate enough to order here. The tastes and textures were beautifully combined to produce two magnificent dishes. The coffee after was better than many of Melbourne's best cafes, and the bill a pleasant surprise. Some of the food was a little late to arrive and... More

Stumbled upon Sapore after walking past some less than desirable eateries on St Kilda Rd. Mid week with no reservation and there were few vacant tables. Service was prompt by knowledgeable waiter. Good selection of food and wine both local and Italian. The duck was cooked to perfection, falling off the bone and packed with flavour. The pasta was also... More
