“Like a visit to Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2011

Sapori is a relatively new addition to the rapidly growing Coronado restaurant row at the foot of Orange Avenue overlooking San Diego Bay. Modestly scaled, it welcomes casual visitors as well as returning fans with equal professionalism. The menu changes with the season and corresponds with the availability of fresh, local ingredients. A large blackboard allows passers-by to find out the specials of the day. The wait staff and the owner chef are more than happy to describe all of the offerings. Adventurous Italian, excellently prepared and presented. We have never been disappointed when eating here.

“Delicious Italian food in Coronado”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

We visit this small restaurant on Orange Ave nr the Ferry Landing regularly for lunch and dinner. The food is authentic Italian and absolutely delicious. Service is Italian style---no rushed meals here, just attentive waiters and great food. The owner couple is on site as chef and maitre d'/waiter and that makes all the difference. Highly recommend this place.

“Simple food well prepared”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2011

Has a short but interesting menu and wine list which apparently changes frequently. Service is attentive but nonintrusive although a little slow at times. Food is nicely prepared and presented but not elaborate. A nice ambiance at a reasonable price.

“Sapori Means Great Flavors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2010

It was our last evening in Coronado and we had done the usual spots - they were nice but not particularly noteworthy. Our final meal was at Sapori and it was outstanding. Better, in fact, than many we've had in Italy. The blackboard showed an intriguing assortment of creative Italian dishes but, even better, the chef explained each of them to us. At the conclusion of the meal our party all agreed it was the best we encountered on this trip. Sapori, on Coronado's main street, is less than a year old and nicely styled. That wouldn't help unless all the staff made it worthwhile and they certainly do, with enthusiasm. The wine list, like the menu, is relatively short but well-chosen. The tab was surprisingly modest given the quality and the ambiance. All in all it goes to the top of our charts
