Encrusted scallops on risotto and Veal Marsala were our menu choices. We started with the meatball appetizer. These were so good— a little garlicky and a nice combo of beef and veal. Super tasty. The other starter we chose was the chapters salad. Our server,...More

Yes, it's Italian. But the fish and seafood here is to die for. And the soups are so flavorful, you will want a second bowl. The salads are excellent. Entrees: Ask for the Swordfish Italian Style or the Sapore del Mare, and you will not...More

Delicious fresh food and we can't wait to try more menu options. Shrimp, Sicilian meatballs, lobster ravioli and pasta side dishes have been outstanding. Excellent service and wine suggestions. We recommend Sapore for a quiet evening, a small group and also a larger party.
