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.

Well exceeded expectations for a "neighborhood Italian" place. Very nice ambience, fairly quiet with low volume music. Service exceedingly gentle, attentive and knowledgable, timely without rushing.
