Great authentic Latin Cuisine

We just left this restaurant and had a wonderful meal. It was my birthday dinner so I wanted some arepas with plantains and yucca. This is the food we remember from Venezuela and it was great. Very fresh with great service. Nice family place. You won't be disappointed!

Nice surprise and gluten-free too! We found this cheerful little cafe by accident. We were actually intending to go somewhere else, but this one looked interesting so we decided to try it out and were very pleased we did. We started with very fresh, good-quality green salads. My fiance had a caprese arepa (Venezuelan and Colombian corn flatbread stuffed with... More

Found this restaurant thru Trip Advisor. On seeing the restaurant I was worried but don't let it's appearance, outside and in, fool you. The food was plentiful and delicious and they were helpful with my dietary needs as well. Sunday is especially good as it's "Date night". Salad, appetizer, main course and dessert at $30 is beyond reasonable. Each dish... More

Have been here several times. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only place I know of where you can get Venezuelan food in the area. Pabellon is excellent. Plantains great. White balsamic salad dressing tangy and wonderful. I usually am there with my son, a picky eater. They are great about accommodating him and improving to provide something he will like... More

I was not expecting much for this restaurant in a strip mall in Mechanicsville, but I was peasantry surprised at the service and the quality of food here at Sapori. The fusion of Italian and Latin flavors and dishes is unique and unlike anything else in Mechanicsville. The dishes are prepared fresh and the variety is excellent. The staff seems... More

Sapori was recommended by a definite "Foodie," my father. As always, Dad was right! It's an unassuming little place that's a delightful surprise! We started with house blend sangria which was delicious. My daughter spent the summer in Spain and said that Sapori served the best sangria she'd had in the U.S.. Chicken Tostones were an excellent start. My daughter... More

My wife and family have been here a few times. The food is always good and fresh, the choices interesting including the specials. Our friends like it too with an interesting mix of Italian food and Spanish cuisine.
