Very Good Food!

We are from out of town and did not want a chain restaurant. We chose this place and were very happy. Nice decor and very good food. The fried zucchini was excellent and the calamari was fresh and cut in house. We decided to try the pizza. It was fabulous! My favorite was the grilled chicken... read more

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.

Several items on the menu were a disappointment. We believe the clams are responsible for two in our party of 10 getting sick. We also ordered tiramisu, which came almost hot, and as soon as you put your fork to it, something resembling raw egg oozed out of the top. I must say the zucchini appetizer was very good, but...

Have eaten in the other 2 "Italian" restaurants in the Chester area, and this is the best of the bunch. More authentic than the others in menu and taste. The arancini were large and lightly crunchy, with an accompanying meat sauce that was as good as my mother's. The eggplant rollatini was extremely thin (nearly non-existent) slices of eggplant surrounding... More

You must be kidding me . Soggy burger. 2 mushed arincini(when I paid $11.00 for 3) And a "oops we forgot your pizza " call after I was 17 mins down the road. Awesome. Don't waste your time here unless Wendy's and any other option is closed. Think I'm just being hard on them? Read my other reviews. What a... More

We started off waiting to be seated outside for 10 Minutes. When we did get a table the service was very good and friendly. We started with calamari which was good crunchy and the accompanying sauces were also tasty. My business partner ordered pizza which he claimed was very good. I had gnocchi with steak which was very disappointing. The... More

We had a party of 10 ladies last night for a birthday dinner. We have dined here before and enjoyed the food and atmosphere, however, last night was terrible from start to finish! Two of us wanted to split a bottle of wine and selected one from the menu (you could either order it by the glass or bottle). When... More

My wife needs gluten free and they have a gluten free menu including pasta. My wife had penne alfredo and she said that without doubt it was the best gluten free pasta she has ever tried, no comparison. I had spaghetti bolognese which was very good and came with a very nice salad. My sister in law had Italian meatloaf... More

Not a bad restaurant, and the food was okay. Had the lasagna and a Caesar salad. Salad was very plain. The lasagna was so-so. Never had peas and carrots in my lasagna before. The bread was awesome and very warm. Good beer and wine selection, and the service was good. Unfortunately for Sapori, there are better Italian restaurants in the... More
