Me and a co worker went there just today Dec 20th to have lunch for the first time we both had Italian dishes and they were really delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and took care of us. He described the different sauces for me since I was clueless. Overall an impressive and yummy visit! Will return!

Stopped in on our way back from a day in Williamsburg, we should have known from the beginning it was going to be a bad choice. Took a long time to be seated, even longer to get a drink order placed and then about 45 minutes for the dinner to arrive. Service was extremely poor and they were definitely short handed. Many of the other patrons were also getting frustrated that the one and only waitress was helping the large party instead of the other diners. Food was ok, kids got cold tenders and fries, ours was warm but not that great in flavor as the waitress had recommended. Surely wont go here again and especially not on a weekend!

Good morning,
I just read the review and I am verry sorry about your experience. I know this is not an excuse but we were down to 1 person in the kitchen and things did not work out as good as always. Rest assure we did our best to please all our great customers. Please give us another chance to show you we are not as bad as you experienced the first time. Thank for letting us know about your experience, we will continue doing our best to avoid situations like this in the future.

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.
