I love this place for so many reasons, love that it’s BYOB and no fees for doing so. The food and service were extraordinary! Pack up your favorite wines and head to Sapori! It really is that good!!!!

We were looking for a place with good food to celebrate my sister’s 61 birthday. The food was excellent! Flavorful and well done. The staff was friendly and nice. Don’t forget BYOW.

Service was excellent. Food was great. Really enjoyed the cannelloni. Canolis were out of this world. Highly recommended.

Authentic Italian food, generous portions, reasonable prices. I had the Manicotti Di Pollo (with a delicious chicken and walnut filling) for dinner, and the Pollo Alla Panna (noodles with chicken and cream sauce) for lunch. While I was there, it was quiet and relaxing, with...More

The venue is very unassuming, but the selection of very good Italian food, served in large portions makes this a must for lovers of their own wine with great food. Our standard test of all Italian restaurants, Lasagna and Meatballs with spaghetti, both passed with...More

The restaurant has potential. However, they had a baby that was some way associated to the restaurant that was a brat making annoying noises through out our meal. It spoiled what little atmosphere that was there. Chintzy paper napkins; cloth napkins would make a world...More

After skimming through several reviews, we opted to try this place out, and we were so happy we did! Fresh, home-made food and desserts! Not lies like some similar places that then try to heat up and pass off previously-frozen garbage as restaurant-quality. Sapori’s is...More

Small restaurant with pretty decent Italian food. I should have read the reviews because I think we were the only table not to have brought in their own wine. It’s a BYOB place. I had the Sapori di mare which had mussels, clams, and shrimp...More

Not that I noticed on the menu, but that was not of concern to me. Call and ask them.
