Great food and friendly staff

We have visited this restaurant in Chester, VA and have never been disappointed. Great food, friendly staff and reasonable prices. They also have live music every other weekend.

we asked the front desk, would never have found it, but glad we did. Its on the upscale side,very classy inside, average dinners 28.00 there were 2 couples, we each ordered differently..from Lasagna, Mannicotti to Eggplant and Chicken parm. I felt the food was on the salty side, (I don't use salt when cooking) everyone seemed to enjoy their food,... More

We stopped in Christmas Eve after calling them and finding out they were open for dinner until 8ish. Very nice, clean and roomy restaurant. My wife had the linguine alfredo which she said was delicious. I had the chicken parmigiana which was very good but I'm accustomed to having it served on a layer of pasta. I also had an... More

I have eaten at Sapori for lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is great with linen tablecloths and napkins. The food was very good both times. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and will be returning Sat. 31st. Of Oct. To hear a man who sings Sinatra. I understand he is very good.

You might be hard pressed to find a friendlier, more attentive wait staff anywhere in Chester and the wine list was impressive. Unfortunately, the food was at best average and unremarkable. There are so many Italian restaurants in the area at so many price points that the kitchen is really going to have to step up their game to compete.... More

My wife and I loved our visit to Sapori. The food all tasted home made with no use of store bought sauces or other things you experience at low quality italian restaurants. The marinara was very good. Any dish that uses their marinara will be good. I had the ahi tuna and it was cooked exactly as I ordered it.... More

The service was great, food delicious, wine and beer selection really good. Cannot complain at all about the pricing. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Anniversary dinner on 31 July 2015.

Some of the food is excellent and some is good but there isn't consistency. The service is extremely slow and they tried to charge our party $1 for ice which was odd. For the money I probably won't go back to this place if I'm being honest.

Yum. Haven't had this good since I was in New York. Really good Caesar salad too. Awesome dressing. Homemade tiramisu.
