We returned again in November, after discovering Sapori in April. We enjoyed the flavors of the dishes we ordered and the crusty Italian bread with a delicious house salad and house Italian dressing. This time we enjoyed Gorgonzola Pasta and Ravioli with 3 cheeses. We would definitely return again. The service is good. It is a small place and reservations... More

Definitely will be back. Loved the spinach manicotti, bruschetta, and rustica pizza. Refreshing to find real Italian food on the island!

Had supper on a Thursday night and it was enjoyable from salad to dessert. Service was prompt, friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive without being pesty. I had the cannelloni di salsicca, pasta filled with their own sausage and ricotta, and covered with their ragu meat sauce, and it's been added to my favorites list. My wife had the bistecca Allan pizzaiola.... More

Always terrific. Our guests always want to go back every time they visit. Bring your own wine. Wait staff is very accommodating. This location is a little off the beaten path but easy to find. If it was on the Sea Wall it would be to crowded to get in.

Good Italian food, but the restaurant needs a lot of work to make it comfortable. Went with friends for a weeknight dinner; it was only half full, but extremely noisy. Hard surfaces everywhere! Had to almost shout across the table, and when another table had loud laughter or loud child, we could not hear each other. It needs sound baffles... More

This restaurant has become our favorite, and we have turned many visitors on to this wonderful find. Everything is made in house; pastas, sauces, desserts. And the chef doesn't do anything halfway. On a recent visit we were told that since their supplier didn't have basil, they had no sauces featuring basil, a disappointment but there were plenty of other... More

This is a gem on Stewart Road that is worth stopping for. My son had the Spaghetti and Meatballs, my wife had the Cannelloni, and I had the Lasagna. My son and I couldn't finish our entree's. My wife said hers was the best and wasn't going to leave a bite behind. The bread was fresh and wonderful. You will... More

Very bright Italian Cuisine in the heart of the Island. We stopped in for Cannoli & Expresso and left with a bunch of Cannolis and a Sicilian Deep Dish Pizza. The service was OK. The other dishes looked good. Try it.
