I used to live in Newport and frequented here a lot. For just date night, birthday or holiday parties, you can't go wrong. Now, whenever I'm in town, this is a definite must to hit before I leave. I have had a couple of things on their menu, but 9 times out of 10 I get the Pasta Roll. Unbelievable!... More

Has sausage as appetizer, great stuff. Enjoyed full course meal with veal. Tasted great. Beer selection need improvement. But even with that issue still a great place worthy of repeat business.

From food to service this is one of my top 10 places to eat at the beach! Well, they are not exactly ON the beach but if you are in Newport Beach or even close, this is a must stop place. Every single thing on the menu is excellent! Also -- you can order sausage to take home and cook... More

Sabatino's is the closest to authentic Italian food you can get in Newport. The restaurant is little and set back off the beaten path. I've had many different menu item's but the sausage sampler as an appetizer and the chicken picatta are my favorite. I suggest going during the holiday's since they decorate the restaurant up with a large tree.

Sabatino's serves hearty Italian food (famous for their sausages) in a relaxed atmosphere. Hard to beat eating outside near the sailboat dock on a beautiful So Cal day. Lots of locals visit. The service was good and we finished everything on our plates. Dinner for three with drinks was about $70 - $80.

Sabatino's is a sausage restaurant - for dinner, I'm told that the pastas and pizza are very good, but we were there for breakfast/brunch. At breakfast, a buffet with a nice selection of fresh fruits and side items is included in your order. These were very fresh and tasty. Your main order is delivered to your table; they have a...

We've been going to Sabatino's for years. On our last few visits, the food has been just fair. Most recently, the food was overall unremarkable, bland and lacking flavor. It appears that the care and attention necessary to produce really good food is just not there anymore. They are turning out food without proper management or oversight and that is... More

Referred by a taxi driver. Said it was great. Arrived and seated outside. Older woman waitress was rude. Bread came out stale with wrapped butter patties. Can't remember the last time I had to unwrap butter. Sausage appetizer was bland, clams awful. Manager or owner came out and picked up a piece of sausage and threw down on the table.... More

I've been having Sabatino's for a few years now. This is a great place to eat. Wonderful food and atmosphere. The pizza is delicious. So tasty and great fresh ingredients. The sausage sandwiches are the best. Great flavor and the best in town.

Upon the recommendation of a Newport Beach native, we dined at Sabatino's during our stay in the Balboa environs. I have to admit that we arrived late (cabby didn't know where it was) and as a result had to wait over fifteen minutes for a drink order. We ordered promptly and while the wait staff had mentally checked out for... More
