Come to our restaurant in the early evening and watch a beautiful sunset while munching on some appetizers like our pan-fried shrimp and sipping on some Italian Sauvignon Blanc. For a main course try our Branzino fish with some sauteed vegetables. Then to finish off a delicious meal and a beautiful night try our Zabaglione with fresh strawberries and a pastry. You will not be disappointed!

Great Italian food with the view of the harbor.

We went on a holiday, made a reservation thru open table, but when we got there the place was almost empty. Quite surprised we got a table with view over the harbor. The service was excellent and fairly quick (considering no one was there :-) ). The food was tasty and well prepared in good normal... read more

The owner is very lovely, he will de-bone the branzino at you table...the question is: is there a chef in the kitchen? I ordered a chicken dish that was absolutely incinerated, dry as burlap... they really need to step up their game!

Very busy for a Tuesday and I can see why. The food, service and wine are all very good. The staff are welcoming and made suggestions. The antipasti dish is enough for 3 or 4 people; the olive oil and bread is tasty and delicious (as in Italy). My fettuccine with artichokes - pasta done to al dente perfection was... More

Dont go to this place. Stone bread. Poor olive oil. The food never came and we left after 40 minutes. The excuse was that one of the oven was broken......

We tried our luck to get a table for four on the 4th of July. The restaurant was packed to the brim. We got in, but many who came after us were turned away. Service varied from slow to fast during our visit. The owner came over a couple of times to apologise, which was a nice gesture. The food... More

Great atmosphere- right on the water, and excellent food. Everything I've had here has been great, service is Italian... and I've taken all my visiting guests. After you can walk along the water and get ice cream at the local booth.

Met some out of state friends for dinner who were in town for just one night at Sapori, and really looked forward to this highly-rated gem of a place, dockside in Marina Del Rey's Fisherman's Village, off the beaten track from the busy, heart-of-the-MDR district's more shi-shi locations. On a Friday night, reservations were easy, unusual for the Marina. First,... More

By the water in Marina del Rey, we went with some friends around 7 p.m. just in time to enjoy the sunset since they gave us a table by the window. I could have eaten anything really! We had a really fresh and creamy Burrata and crunchy fried calamari and shrimps for starters. This was the best part of the... More

What a shame. We were looking for a great place on the water with lovely Italian fare. When we first arrived I thought this was a perfect place! We were seated inside next to the window for the view. Unfortunately, it was incredibly warm with no air conditioning circulating at all. I asked if they could turn the A/C on... More

Sapori is right at the water with a beautiful view of the harbor and its boats. Lovely! Unfortunately you can only enjoy the great view with a glass of wine or a beer. Sapori does not have a full bar! The food is OK but lacks seasonality and many of the dishes were too heavy for summer. Unfortunately my carpaccio... More
