Came for a special anniversary. Wasn't sure what to expect due to it's size and location. Use this place for celebration, or if you just want food therapy. Small, intimate, great service and a small but interesting menu. Wine list very good. Wonderful.

We had Dinner with friends last night at Sapore and what a delicious meal we had. First we had ravioli with cream sauce they just melted in your mouth. The steak was great and my fish was superb. It was the dessert that made this dinner memorable the limoncello cake was incredible. The restaurant is small and a drive from... More

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 the Loretta Paganini School of Cooking in Chesterland. A great... 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
