Great food, reasonable prices

There are lots of choices on the menu, the food is good and portions ample. Prices are very reasonable. Their specialty is Italian cuisine. My husband had the lasagna, I had seafood cannelloni, and my son had the Bistro Steak. The food presentation is attractive. The atmosphere is casual which... read 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

Excellent Italian restaurant in the heart of Chester. My first trip I had the Eggplant Bruschetta and the Garlic and Olive Oil Linguine. Both were so good I came back a second time and had the Squid Ink Pasta, also very good and quite unique. I have no hesitation about returning and look forward to a third trip. Both times... More

Superb flavor. I. Come from an Italian town in WV and this restaurant is the closest thing to home cooked.

Pork osso bucco undercooked, sautéed spinach poorly drained, bistro beef tender but unstained raspberries dumped on a plate is not a sauce, asparagus fibrous wrapped in very salty prociutto, garlic mash potatoes were instant potatoes. Bartender and bar was very boisterous overall a poor dining experience

Our first visit here was with friends to test out the new restaurant in town. It was not a standout evening. As I recall it was not a busy evening, there was a mix-up in our order, service was slow, portions small, and prices on the high-side.

Just finished a wedding rehearsal dinner for 33 people and can't say enough how wonderful on event was. Dario and Angela were just phenomenal. Our son, the groom had selected a fantastic menu which allowed our guests to choose their appetizer, entree and sides. Dario had communicated that he wanted to make our event one we would remember while providing... More

Our service organization met here last night. Approximately 25 people enjoyed a prearranged choice of ribeye steak, salmon, or chicken. All servings were ample and everyone appeared to thoroughly enjoy their meal. A selection of wines was also available. Two servers took care of us and we were not rushed. With few choices for groups to meet for a special... More
