We arrived in Chicago and wanted to support a local Lincoln Park restaurant during the pandemic. We’d made reservations through open table about a week in advance and we were able to secure a 7:00pm outdoor res for a Wednesday night. Great service and a...careful explanation of mask rules (required to be on any time the server or assistant is at the table as well as entering inside the building). Delicious meal. The seafood risotto was excellent. The salmon was very good. But the hit it out of the ballpark entree was the shrimp and pasta. The risotto and the shrimp pasta were both enough for two; our son happily took the leftovers home with reheating instructions from our server. The menus are modified for the pandemic (if you are a long time regular there the restaurant offers explanation of why some favorite dishes are not yet available). Tables are distanced from each other. And if you are lucky you might catch a Groupon from Sun- Thursday dining.More

Wanting to go out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, not an option for now, we placed our first ever delivery order from Sapori Trattoria. The service was impeccable. All the food arrived hot, all in sturdy microwaveable containers except for the soup...(double packed and film-wrapped to avoid leakage), the bread (well wrapped which kept it warm) and of course the Tiramisu. The salad dressing was, as it should be, on the side, as was grated cheese. The food was delicious, a good pick-me-up. We called the restaurant directly so their staff could keep all of the payment (otherwise the delivery services take a large fee.) We could not have been more pleased, and will continue this for the lockdown duration. The only thing we forgot was to ask them not to send utensils or napkins, since - eating at home - we have our own.More

This is a very good neighborhood gem. Amble portions excellently prepared. The spaghetti with veal meatballs is to die for!

Dined here on busy Wednesday evening without reservations. Promptly seated at a corner table in the rear dining room. Service very good--timely, knowledgeable, and courteous. Server made very helpful suggestions. Menu contains many Italian style; including small plate appetizers, pastas, and larger entrees. Friend and...I opted to share an order of rigatoni and an order of stuffed chicken breast. Both were delicious. However, I was disappointed that the chicken entree was not near as warm as the pasta dish. Prices were reasonable, especially for the location and service. Atmosphere a bit crowded as tables are positioned closely together, arriving and departing from table difficult not to disturb fellow diners. I will return.More

I have been frequenting Sapori for almost 20 years. I have never had anything less than an excellent meal here. The wait staff is professional and the owner/chef will often come out and see how your evening was. Make sure to make a reservation on...weekends/ special occasions. Try the lobster stuffed pasta...incredible. Also, sign up and they will send you frequent coupons and birthday coupon!More

This is a large restaurant that serves hugely generous portions of well-prepared Italian classic dishes. The staff are a real plus at this restaurant-they genuinely want to ensure that you're having a positive experience. I've been here twice and found this to be true on...both occasions. The noise level is tolerable and this is a great place to come with a group and be able to have a conversation with everyone at the table. The prices are moderate and the parking is easy around here. Everyone I've been here with really enjoyed the evening.More

We tried Sapori on the advice of a friend, and we weren't disappointed. It's a warm and cozy place with really good Italian food. My son had the grilled calamari as a appetizer, and thoroughly enjoyed it. For dinner, he had the Chilean Sea Bass,...and I had the Vegetarian Lasagna. We both enjoyed our meals! The lasagna was huge, and delicious, and I took half of it back to the hotel. The pasta was light, thin, and fresh. Portions were ample and we left satisfied. Will definitely go back on our next trip to Chicago.More

About 10 years ago, our family headed over to the north shore for dinner, but the restaurant we wanted to go to was closed, unexpectedly. Plan A was a no go. So we searched OpenTable and Yelp and made a reservation for that same evening...at Sapori Trattoria on Halsted. Plan B was a go. We've been back about once a year, for great, authentic, Italian appetizers and entrees (and desserts). There are some core items on the menu, which are our go-to's, but seasonal additions and creative options. We've been for family gatherings, birthday's, vacation announcements for the kids, end of the school year celebrations and even witnessed a marriage proposal (not ours) in the small side room on the main floor. Our home mailbox receives a note from Chef Anthony several times a year, with a coupon of the amount of an appetizer. Nice touch and great reminder to head back to Halsted again. Our original Plan B has been our Plan A ever since.More

What a tremendous find. The food was fantastic. Our service staff was great. Gia made our whole dinner an incredible experience. She was very helpful with food choices and very attentive to our needs. At our table we enjoyed the Gnocchi with chicken in pesto....The portion sizes are huge. Enough to take home for another meal, we also had the veal osso buco which was very tender and flavorful. My wife had seafood and pasta. There was a great abundance of seafood and it was done to perfection. They also have an arrangement for parking at the Home Depot lot right next door. Ricardo the manager was very accommodating and friendly. He made us feel welcome the moment we walked in. The whole experience was fantastic, my wife thought he was a “beautiful man “. She has never complimented me like that!More

Not likely. The only 'loyalty' type App(s)that I know of is GROUPON and LIVING SOCIAL, they allow for discounted meals. Do enjoy the great food.
