New Year's Eve Celebration

Four of us enjoyed New Year's eve at Sapore in Chesterland, Ohio. What a treat! One of the best meals ever. The six course meal, plus appetizers, featured the herb crusted beef tenderloin medallions. The creamy lobster bisque and the wild mushroom agnolotti were fantastic. This restaurant is run by... read more

I took myself to dinner here as it not only was my birthday but I have been a student at the cooking school too. This is a small intimate venue with excellent service and superb food! It is worth the drive.

I ate at Sapore recently on a Thursday eve. I had the veal entree with a delicious leek risotto...my husband tried the lobster / potato cake / corn salsa. Everything was well prepared and flavorful. Chef Brandon came out after our meal and asked it everything was to our liking! I would highly recommend this restaurant for its specialized service... More

My budget was small, and yet I wanted a special place to celebrate my parent's 65th anniversary...taking into consideration that, and my father's hearing issues...I chose Sapore, even postponing the celebration to the day after the official date, since Sapore is only open Thursday-Saturday. They did a lovely job of working with me, and although I felt adding 20% to... More

This is a intimate restaurant with limited seating. Its charming and you feel special. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. I enjoyed the evening seafood chef tasting menu and each course was presented beautifully. Every bite was delicious. My husband chose a beef course and said it was delicious. Loretta Paganini was not in but the chef did a great... More

This is suitable for special occasions. Refined Italian cooking and equally refined service. This was my third visit and I again left impressed. The pasta trio was amazing -- perfectly cooked and rich ingredients. The chef is a master at employing heavy cheeses and cured meats to drive the main flavors. But he rounds out the dishes with subtle use... More

In the quaint suburb of Chesterland, Oh. is a very small Italian restaurant that is worth the drive, the prices (not too steep) and the wait. Luckily, my husband and I live nearby and eat here whenever a special occasion arises. The servers are attentive, the wine list is phenomenal, and most importantly, the food (usually cooked by Loretta Paganini... More

Lovely Italian Flavors. Knowledgeable waitstaff. Luscious food. Good timing. If I lived here this would be my go to spot for a "really nice" meal!

My parents helped us celebrate our wedding anniversary there the evening of May 11th. I located this restaurant on Trip Advisor as I had not lived in the area for over 35 years. Our visit from beginning to end was wonderful....only thing was most of us all wanted the same menu items. As I like variety (and could taste theirs),... More

Took my daughter here for her 19th birthday. First time we had been here, although we had driven by many times. It blew us away. Where to start? First, the wine list is incredible. Not deep, but it covers a wide range. Incredibly low prices -- the same bottles would be at least double the price. At least. I often... More
