Fabulous spaghetti carbonara and mushroom risotto. And, they make a legit espresso. Very nice neighborhood spot!

“Less than Expected - I'l have to go back for one more try.”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Cute restaurant with ambiance. Seems like lots of locals stop in for dinner.
Mostaccioli was so so - nothing impressive. Salmon was tasty and moist. Chicken dish was a bit dried out. Hoping my 2nd visit will be more impressive.

“Real Italian Gem”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

So this is such a lovely restaurant in our daughter's neighborhood, so we came here again. This time, just before a concert. Service was excellent - knowledgeable, friendly & accommodating.
I had the delicious mussels in white wine sauce, all very fresh, tender, succulent. We shared a large bowl of minestrone, all vegetarian. Hubby had the gluten free pasta fusilli which was very tasty but the pasta was overcooked so it was all broken. We also had a wonderful order of sauteed broccoli & zucchini with garlic. Perfect. Delightful Gem!

“How did I miss this one?”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

I've lived in Chicago for 20 years...how did I miss this restaurant? A hidden gem in the Lincoln Park neighborhood (recommended by Victory Gardens Theater)! Warm and cozy italian restaurant, GREAT service, GREAT drinks/wine, GREAT food...how do you beat that?

We will go back, and back, and back! You should too!

“Delish in Lincoln Park”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was my second visit to Sapori Trattoria. Both experiences were equally delightful. The restaurant is quaint and welcomes groups. The first time we had a group of ten. The most recent was a group of six. I purchased a groupon to be used during the week. When making the reservation I was asked if we were celebrating a special event.
When we arrived our friends who had just graduated school had personalized menus congratulating them. What a nice touch. The 2 jumbo shrimps with broccoli was amazing as well as the grilles calamari for an appetizer.
We definitely will return.
