We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant and will definitely go back. It really is something different than most restaurants in Mechanicsville. The atmosphere is trendy and unique. The food was excellent! The prices were reasonable and there was a good wine selection. Since we had never had Venezuelan food, we took the recommendation of the waiter and both tried a Latin dish and were not disappointed. All of the staff was really friendly and the owner came to our table to welcome us. They were having a wine dinner later in the evening, which sounded great. We made sure to get on their e-mail list about future wine dinners and plan to return to try other menu items.

Stopped at the Hampton Inn in Mechanicsville, VA on our way to NC. Checked Trip Advisor and found glowing reviews for Sapori...less than 1/2 mile from the hotel. We were not disappointed! Food and service were outstanding. (I had the veal saltimboca and my husband had veal parm...both excellent!) Upon requesting the wine list, the wait staff brought out 5 bottles of red and 4 whites for us to sample. We bought a bottle of each and took them with us. Very reasonable priced food and wine. We will definitely be returning here on our North/South travels.

The wine, the menu, the service and the planning were all superb. Remarkable value and a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a package heretofore unheard of in Mechanicsville. Mr. Blanco found a wine distributor who has access to remarkable Italian wines. The wines were paired with each dish, and we were told about the region, the winery, and the particular wine we were trying. The combinations were outstanding. I would have to recommend attending with a good friend, one who will not object to sharing, since both selections for the main course were delicious. The passion which Mr. Blanco and his staff have for this establishment is evident through out. We look forward to future culinary excellence!

Not your everyday boring food and scene. Sapori is a true experience bringing me back to my days living in Miami and enjoying awesome food and scenery. I have had almost every dish on the menu and havent yet found anything that I didn't like. The staff are wonderful and the food is amazing. This is a must visit when in Mechanicsville.
