Delicious homemade warm bread and the pasta is spectacular! Loved sitting outside during COVID. The drinks are great. One of the best Italian places in the City!
2.5 stars. I don’t understand the hype around this place. It was slightly awkward when I walked in. The host stared at me for a couple seconds before asking if I had a reservation and then went “uh…okay how many in your party?” It felt uncomfortable and unwelcoming. My friend and I shared the Bucatini Carbonara and the Rigatoni Caprese. I liked the bucatini more because it had more flavor and aroma, and was cooked well. The rigatoni to me lacked flavor, it just tasted like some sauce was watered down and glazed over. The pasta itself was cooked nicely, not too soft, and the cheese wasn’t overwhelming. The food was decent. Several times, the servers tried to take our plates away when we weren’t even finished. They took the salt and pepper, or whatever else was on the table away before we were even finished with our meal. It felt like they just wanted us out of there. Well, no problem I won’t be returning.
When you’re in the mood for a very authentic and delicious Italian food, think of this restaurant. Chef Anthony has done nothing less than the incredible in providing each diner with a wonderful experience. His staff is friendly, accommodating, and professional. For the quality of service and amazing taste of the food, the cost of this restaurant is very low. A full course meal for a friend of mine and I, without drinks, was just under $100. The outdoor café is an excellent addition for those of us concerned with the pandemic. This is a restaurant that you will enjoy, you can afford, and you shouldn’t miss.
I had the best dining experience of my life here, especially during COVID. They came with bottled water, individual olive oil and Parmesan packets with the bread which is so thoughtful and added so much to the dinning experience. There is also a bunch of outdoor seating and it’s really cute! After many suggestions from the best waiter, Omar, I decided to make my own dish with their homemade vodka sauce, penne, spinach, and crumbled sausage. It was the best pasta I’ve ever had, I can’t wait to come back. While we were eating, it rained lightly (which didn’t bother us because the food was so good we were distracted), they gave us 2 free desserts and extra warm, fresh bread to take home. I’ll be thinking about this experience for weeks
Great food, friendly staff, the our door seating is quite nice, feels very summery and almost make you forget this whole pandemic. Each person gets their own bottled water, very nice, and their own pack of olive oil and parmesan cheese. Fried calamari is light, tender, cripy on the outside. Add a touch of lemon juice with their in house marinara sauce, i literally couldn’t stop Food is very well portioned, very hearty. My friend had the meat ball and sausage pasta which she had spaghetti replaced with their homemade pasta. Both meats are juicy, tender, well seasoned and very delicious. It has that meaty flavor that satisfies any meat lover when you bite into it. Lasagna is so well put together, it forms a small pouch sealing the ingredients in; keeping everything moist. Also helps everything stay in place when you cut into it. The seasoning is the right amount for me which is on the lighter side. It really brings out the flavor from the ingredients. The sweetness from the tomato, with that little bit of tang and the savoriness of the meat. The creaminess from the cheese and if you want a little more saltiness I recommend a bit parmesan on top. Definitely one of the best lasagna I’ve ever had. One thing tho, the side walk is slanted at an angle. So the tables are slightly tilted. Doesn’t effect the dining experience but if you prefer tables flat then sit inside. They also told my friend and I that they don’t accept groupons till next phase when I called. But they accepted it from the table next to us… so some clarification on groupon would be appreciated.
5 STARS EVERY TIME! Sapori is one of my favorite restaurants and such a hidden gem in Lincoln Park! Not only does the food taste amazing, but the portions are huge – I easily get two full meals out of my meal. Highly recommend the Pennette Cardinale and the Chicken Parm! The chicken parm isn’t typically on the menu, but as long as they’re not too busy they’re willing to make it. The servers are always attentive without being too hands on and super friendly! Either the red or white sangria is a must, and the homemade tiramisu or chocolate raspberry cake is delicious for dessert! Seriously can’t go wrong with any pasta dish on the menu but some other favs include the gnocchi al brivido, spaghetti barese and the bucatini carbonara
I have not had the opportunity to dine in, but we ordered delivery from their website and it was a breeze. They have a $55 deluxe dinner for 2. It’s worth it, considering most of their pastas are at least $20. The portions were quite generous! Our selections: Insalata Rustica Salad, Roasted Tomato Caprese, Pennette Cardinale, Gamberoni e Broccoli, Homemade Tiramisu We were a bit disappointed they forget the chicken in the Pennette Cardinale, but there was an abundance of shrimp in the Gamberoni e Broccoli. The shrimps were so big and juicy, tasted like lobster!! Both pastas were great, and we had enough to make 3 meals out of them. The salad and caprese were fresh, and the homemade tiramisu was so moist and not too sweet. I can’t wait to try other items off the menu!
Definitely one of my favorite Italian restaurants now in the city! Came with my girlfriend for a date night/to participate in their restaurant week. It was my first time but she recommended it to me so we gave it a go! To first timers who dine Sunday – Thursday’s, there’s free validated parking at the Home Depot parking lot! Just make sure to tell your waitress/waiter at the end of your meal for the ticket. I believe it’s valet Friday’s and Saturday’s. Greeted and seated instantly (we had a reservation but still very prompt). We were given the menu and started off with a lemon drop martini and a beer. They give you a bread basket (always a plus) with a dish of cheese and will refill if they see it empty/upon request! As a part of their restaurant week, we ordered: – mussels in a white sauce and fried calamari as first course – linguini alle Vongole (linguini and clams) and the spaghetti allo Scoglio (seafood spaghetti) as second course – tiramisu and the hazelnut panna cotta as our third course Everything was honestly amazing. I wish I remembered our waiter’s name because he was really nice and tentative even as the night got busier. We will definitely be back! They give you little comment cards to fill out at the end and my girlfriend has received some paper coupons in the mail that will definitely get put to use. Can’t wait for another visit!
After a wonderful afternoon visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo (highly recommend it during the pandemic). Our family was famished and ready for a hearty genuine Italian meal. Sapori is socially distanced and the inside looked very cozy, however we on the patio. For starters the service was exceptional with great recommendations and a knowledgeable waitstaff. The children’s portions were good, the wine was reasonably priced and paired well with the entrees. I highly recommend the Zuppa de Pesce which was for two and full of fish, calamari, shrimp and mussels. We had it spicy which made it a 10+. Topped off with a Tiramisu which was as good as we have eaten in Italy! Give them a try and you won’t be disappointed.
