Description: An enchanting restaurant in the very hearth of San Jose, with authentic Italian cuisine and spotless service. Everything is hand made. Try the Festa della Pasta, for a fix price you can try 5 different handmade pastas. Enjoy our brick oven long fermentation pizzas and visit our new space, La Bottega del Gusto, where you can find the best of our artisanal products and take them to your own place...

I was looking for somewhere new when a friend came to Costa Rica on her second visit and Sapore really gave us a good experience.

The staff were welcoming and helpful...not pushy to two women not wanting a full meal...and the cooking was excellent.

Though there were pizzas and pasta - and plenty of people clearly enjoying both...we ordered chicken and veal main courses - both excellent - found we could order wine by the glass, and enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned the next evening, when everything was just as good.

I should not hesitate to go there on my own in future as the atmosphere is so welcoming and the cooking so authentic.

We both had pastas which were prepared perfectly by the kitchen brigade. The service is very thoughtful and kept bringing water. The atmosphere is very relaxed which makes you enjoy more the food and company. They do have wines but because they were not on a list we did not order any as we fond it difficult to compare quality and price. Give this restaurant a try and you will not be disappointed. It may look a little formal from the outside but you feel very welcome when you are inside. And for the price; it is actually cheaper than Tierra Nuestra which is located on the other side of the street.

Good food and wine and made very welcome. Very fair prices.
We were given a free dessert. Scrummy! Great location if staying in Fleur de Lys .
