Went here with a large business crowd of about 30. There was a room upstairs that was perfect for our needs and we fitted in comfortably. The restaurant is rustic and has a charm to it, it was a nice venue with a good atmosphere and accessible in the center of Burlingame. A simple cut down menu for us to... More

I went to this restaurant on a business trip with some coworkers and was pleasantly surprised by the food. This place has a smaller menu, but we all ordered different items and a few appetizers and NO ONE was disappointed at all. I even ordered the whole wheat pasta instead of the cappelini and it was delicious/you would never have... More

I've been to this restaurant many times, the food is delicious and the service is always friendly. My favorite dish is the Rigatoni Rustica, but I have tried other dishes that have also been yummy. The atmosphere is lively, a great place to celebrate a meal with friends or family!

For a few of my group they had been to restaurant several times. They felt that food was not as carefully prepared as before. The specialty dish with breaded chicken stuffed with prosciutto was disappointing as the chicken was overcooked and dry. The ravioli with soinach/cheese tasted almost entirely of unseasoned spinach. The veal marsala was very good, but accompanying... More

I have been dining here for years but my last visit, some four months ago, was disappointing and I wondered about the service and if they had changed chefs. It turns out my last visit was an anomaly. The service was great and the food was as it has always been, delicious. I had capellini, minestrone and carpaccio. All were... More

I recently had an excellent lunch at Sapore. The bread was delicious andthe chicken sandwhich was very tasty. The service was both efficient and friendly. It did take a few trips around the block before I could find a parking space, however.

Terrific little place on "The Ave". Friendly environment awaits you as you pass through the doors. The bar is cozy and the bartender is generous. The menu is complete from pizza to fine entries. Elio, the owner, is present through most of the evening, checking in on your satisfaction. After a few visits, the menu can become tired, but the... More

Loved the atmosphere, and the food was off-the-charts good. Great wine selection, too. Try the risotto! Will definitely come back here.

The location and restaurant itself is very nice. Beyond that it was a very big disappointment. Beginning with the staff our experience was poor. We ordered several app's, but the bruschetta was by far the most uneventful. I believe the bread is that of a freeze and bake. Texture and density is bad. The bottoms were burned showing us it...
