We were here, a couple years ago, because it was Mom and Dad's 65th anniversary, and Loretta and Wendy were so accommodating in helping with the particular needs...last year we went elsewhere and lets say all ended well after a rough start that involved two establishments. This year, nothing was left to chance. Wendy contacted me and we put together... More

Small restaurant associated with the larger cooking school located across the street. Intimate setting with only about 10 tables so reservations are recommended. Food is fabulous northern Italian with a twist. Offer both a 5 course seafood and meat menu at 60 dollars a piece. Both were great. Wine selection was good and reasonable priced. Plenty of self parking in... More

Our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely be going back! The restaurant is very quaint and cozy. The dinner was very relaxed and not rushed at all. My husband enjoyed the bourbon selection and I enjoyed the wine. The food was excellent. We were told most of the ingredients are locally sourced. This was a "date night"... More

This is a fantastic restaurant associated with the nearby cooking school. The meals are fit for foodies and a rare find for the area. Overall the food and service were excellent, but a few dishes were off. Don't let that stop you from trying it. It is worth it!

After the first bite of ravioli I close my eyes and thought I was back in a little Trattoria in Italy. Great food and a small cozy setting set the stage for a romantic evening. We enjoyed the homemade pastas, the veal and the gelato. We will be back this time with friends, we can't wait to show off our... More

My second time here. Our group of five had dinner here Saturday night. It's a small restaurant and your table is yours for the evening, they will not rush you out! That's just one of the things that makes this restaurant special. The food and service were excellent. All salads were very good. Three had the pasta trio which they... More

My family and I visited Sapore restaurant Friday night. We had an excellent meal and great service. I had the beef, the wife had the scallops and the kids had the pasta trio. All delicious and served in a timely manner even though the restaurant was quite full. Nice wine list as well. Can't wait to go back!

Wow! What another great New Year's Eve at Sapore, The Loretta Paganini school of Cooking, in Chesterland, Ohio. A six course meal which featured the filet Mignon with wild mushroom ragout in sangiovese wine demi sauce. The other standouts were the creamy lobster bisque with chive quenelles and the mascarpone ravioli in tomato veloute. The dessert was an individual chocolate... More
