“Sapori gets the Boca nod for consistent excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I along with several of friends continue to rate Marco's Sapori as one of Boca's best. One visit to a restaurant here doesn't always mean it's typical. Very true but in this case Sapori will honor a reservation if YOU are on time, menu choices are always excelled by off- menu choices. If you truly love great seafood, fish and Italian "traditionals", this is worth a visit or revisit. Yes, the prices are up there for both food and wine but we almost always feel it was worth it. The wait staff are always up to date on the kitchens recommended dishes and preparations.

“Wierd owner,They didn't want our business!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

It was just written up in the Boca Raton Observer, so when a friend was down here for a real estate deal, we said let's give it a try. We made a 8:30 reservation, got there at 8:40. My wife is parking her car so my guest and I walked in and immediately were made uncomfortable by 2 members of the staff, not because we were 10 min late but they just said "its sooo late" the breaking point was the owner stuck his head out from the kitchen and pointed to his watch and said something like "why don't you come back tomorrow". That was it,we got up, my wife was walking in by then ,and we walked out, NOW the waiter starts apologizing saying its an early place. Well what the hell did you take a 8:30 reservation for? And it was Halloween night to boot! The town was jumping..we went to Trattoria Romana(first time), took us right in, it was crowded and the food was excellent.

“High price, low value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We have had dinner at Sapori many times over the years. We have been increasingly disappointed in our dining experiences. Most importantly, the price is very high, particularly for the specials. The high price is not justified by either the quality of the meals or the tired decor and ambiance of the restaurant. The service was adequate and certainly not worthy of the very high price charged. One of our dining partners had a poached egg filled ravioli with truffle shaved on top as an entree. That was one single, large ravioli measuring about 5 inches in diameter on the plate. The price of that entree was $35. We paid $10 for a side order of sauted spinach. The homemade pasta was average at best. The restaurant's appearance is tired and not up to par for the prices charged. The service was substandard for the prices charged. I will never return. There are too many good restaurants in Boca for me to waste a dinner out on this establishment.

“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Fine dining at its best, with a genuine chef/owner presenting exquisite Italian food. Do not expect chicken parm and garlic bread; instead, fresh fish prepared table side and house made pasta.

“Cozy Italian Restaurant in Boca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We went here in late July and found the food to be very good. We had homemade Ravoli with sun dried tomatoes and cheese which was very tasty. This was real real homemade pasta since we were watching them make the pasta on a nearby table. We also had White Snapper which was cooked to perfection.
The service was excellent and the waiter suggested a red wine from Umbria which was great. For desert, we had Tartufo with pistachio ice cream, again very good and different from the normal. The only down side was the restaurant was a little pricy.
