Sapori Cafe is a great little place..the food is simple Italian Recipes at a great value..the quality is far better than most expensive chain restaurants..great for pasta.. I particularly enjoy the potato skins with Aioli.

Came for lunch, don't know how it's taken us 6 years in Newcastle and living around the corner for over a year to discover Sapori's! Very flavourful food at really reasonable price points. Friendly and welcoming staff as well. We will definitely come back!

I'd been meaning to try here for years after hearing lots of good things about it. Wish I'd been sooner. I'm already looking forward to working my way through the menu. We had garlic mushrooms and goats cheese to start (best mushrooms I've had!). For...More
