“So good and so reasonable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

We had a dinner reservation as this is a small, away from the crowds, restaurant in the alley with shops above the waterfront. The seafood pasta was loaded with mussels, clams and snails in a marvelous tasting sauce. ( very unlike the same dish at the waterfront cafes ). We also shared an appetizer of baked mussels kind of like a mussels casino without the bacon. The pasta course was more than a meal in itself. The service was excellent and the price quite reasonable.

“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

After a morning swim in Byron's Cove we happened upon this place. Service was attentive and the food was excellent. The freshest ingredients and probably some of the best pesto around the Cinque Terra made it all worth the short wait for a table outside which in the afternoon becomes totally shaded.

“Superb pasta.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

So glad they found us a table outside without a res. I haven't seen pasta with both pesto and tomato sauce on any menu in Liguria, but Sapori makes it and it's brilliant. Their Caprese salad was flavorful and very fresh. Very nice service. Excellent value.

“Make Reservations! Too quaint & good to pass up!”

Huge portions and everything is fresh and of quality. Restaurant is small so make sure to make reservations. Service is friendly and right in the historic district!

“Umm ummm umm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

Best, freshest mussels ever!! I'm not a big mussel fan, but this place changed my mind, our table of four could not get enough of these. The fresh pasta was exquisite, our waitress was great, the chef came out to say hello.
