Description: Loosely translated as ‘Sardinian flavours’, this cosy family-run newcomer on Fulham Road nails its regional colours to the mast with a menu that highlights the island’s rustic specialties and native produce. Come here for bowls of spaghetti laced with bottarga (dried mullet roe), malloreddus ‘gnocchi’ with sausage ragù and pecorino or monkfish wrapped in Sardinian air-dried ham (served with sautéed courgettes, chilli and mint). The kitchen also knocks out its share of trattoria staples, from grilled calamari with tangy salmoriglio dressing to seafood risotto and calf’s liver with butter and sage.

“Great Food, Faultless Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

It's easy to forget about good service, when you are constantly let down by uninterested, overworked staff. This place reminds me how it's supposed to be done.

The food was pleasantly straightforward, but all courses were delicious. £9.50 for a cheese board sounds extortionate, but it was worth every penny. I want to return just for that.

“They opened up the trap door in the floor....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

In the middle of our meal they moved the tables, opened the trap door and delivered
kitchen stock! We could not believe it, not only dangerous but not conducive to any
enjoyment. The food was poor, service disinterested and then a family came in the
use the facilities. The bill was £80 for 2. Avoid it....

“Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Four of us visited this restaurant on a Friday evening. There was a friendly greeting from the front of house team and having been shown to our table, chosen our food, our drinks and wine were brought promptly to us. The good service stopped there. We had to wait almost one hour for our starters and we were in the restaurant for almost three hours for three courses. The chef emerged from his kitchen and when I told him of my opinion his comment was "It happens" No apology was forthcoming and he left by the front door. At no time were we asked if everything was satisfactory. It would appear to me that the kitchen is not large enough to cater for the number of covers in the restaurant. Would I recommend the place to anyone. Definitely not.

Dear Sir,
I was very disappointed to read your review with regard to your visit on Friday evening.

Firstly, may I offer you our sincere apologies.

We are a small family restaurant and it is not in our interest to disappoint our guests. Piero Chef (owner) I have spoken to him about your review and he was also very sorry that your food was delayed.

We take great pride in our service and work very hard. Friday evening was busy but I know it’s no excuse that our guests arrived at the same time.

Please allow me to change your mind and gain your trust in Sapori Sardi, contact me directly upon your convenience at 0788 574 8686 or e mail me ssaporisardi@gmail.com
I look forward to hearing from you.

Very best regards,

“An unusually good neighbourhood restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Part of the fun of living in London, or it should be, is have having a range of good restaurants one can walk to. Neighbourhood restaurants

SW6 has plenty of eating places but there are not many we could recommend, sadly.

Sapori Sardi is an exception. We can recommend it, but with the usual worries that it might then become too popular! On the other hand if it is Number 30 in London we can't be the first to spot this little gem. We went on the advice of a friend and how right he was.

Our food was excellent and well flavoured. The pasta was obviously freshly made. The house wine was highly drinkable and not a silly price.

Service was friendly and efficient.

We will be back - soon.
