Sapori is located right at the waterside, near to the waterbuses, which adds to the athmosphere. Service is typical Italian, friendly and straightforward. Food is more than OK, although nothing really special. More than enough parking space, which is an advantage in LA.

great view, relaxed atmosphere, terrific food, fresh fish, attentive service, good wine selection and free parking. It has been our local favorite for 10 years.

We are staying in Venice Beach and this was worth the travel to Marina Del Rey. Located on the water with great views and a good menu with reasonable pricing. I ordered the Gnocchi and it was absolute perfection. Cheesy with authentic italian sauce. Service was great. My mum ordered the rib eye, cooked to perfection. Couldn't fault anything. The... More

Came here with friends who live in the area and enjoyed excellent service and good food. The owner is a hoot! Highly recommend.

I got Farfalle alls Carrettiera, which is pasta with cream sauce, chicken, prosciutto, mushrooms and peas. It was incredibly tasty and big enough for 2 people. I was served by Stefano - the owner/manager, who was a great attentive host. Lovely place to eat if you around Marina del Rey.

From the reviews I've seen about this place I was expecting so much more. I ha the jumbo prawns with salad and skewered vegetables. The prawns were split in half and it was difficult to separate the meat from the shells. Some of the potatoes were under cooked and the mushrooms were just average sized. Service was almost none existent... More

We went on a holiday, made a reservation thru open table, but when we got there the place was almost empty. Quite surprised we got a table with view over the harbor. The service was excellent and fairly quick (considering no one was there :-) ). The food was tasty and well prepared in good normal sizes (not too much).... More

The owner is very lovely, he will de-bone the branzino at you table...the question is: is there a chef in the kitchen? I ordered a chicken dish that was absolutely incinerated, dry as burlap... they really need to step up their game!

Very busy for a Tuesday and I can see why. The food, service and wine are all very good. The staff are welcoming and made suggestions. The antipasti dish is enough for 3 or 4 people; the olive oil and bread is tasty and delicious (as in Italy). My fettuccine with artichokes - pasta done to al dente perfection was... More

Dont go to this place. Stone bread. Poor olive oil. The food never came and we left after 40 minutes. The excuse was that one of the oven was broken......

Come to our restaurant in the early evening and watch a beautiful sunset while munching on some appetizers like our pan-fried shrimp and sipping on some Italian Sauvignon Blanc. For a main course try our Branzino fish with some sauteed vegetables. Then to finish off a delicious meal and a beautiful night try our Zabaglione with fresh strawberries and a pastry. You will not be disappointed!
