I can't really think of a single negative about this place. The food was fantastic and the service was great. The place itself was warm and welcoming with a lovely atmosphere. We'll definitely be heading back!

From the outside Sapori looks like it should be an industrial building. Boy does that change once inside. The decor is great and the open kitchen at the far end is immaculate. The food and service are first class. The main of prawn risotto with burrata could not have been bettered.
We travelled twenty miles to eat here and we will be repeating the journey many times. Go and see for yourselves!

We arrived to celebrate our silver wedding. We were shown to our table by the head waiter. He was curtious and friendly throughout the evening and made us feel very welcome. We chose the taster menu, 8 courses, and we were each time, amazed by the flavours, presentation, and given a description of each dish by another friendly waiter. We were asked if we had any food allergies before we begun. We didn't, but it was nice to know, they would cater for that if we did. Each dish was amazing. We finally came to the end of the courses, and felt nicely full and happy. We were made to feel special, even when we were leaving, the head chef ame out to shake our hands and thank us for choosing the. We will definitely be returning. Highly recommend this place. Stunning.

When they serve you octopus & it tastes like heaven, when they bring your sweet & you feel like you’re vandalising fine art by cutting into it - that’s how they got the Michelin star…. Not just a meal, an orgasm at the table. Go & see for yourself.

Not so much one of the finest Italian meals I've ever had, more one of the finest meals I've ever had, period. This is food that ticks a lot of boxes, well presented, fresh, and really, really delicious. The portions were not so small that you feel cheated but not so massive that you feel you've overdone it after your dessert (and trust me, you'll want to try the desserts). The sides are definitely worth having as well, the bread in particular was a bit of a hit.

Atmosphere wise, it's a lovely, relaxed place. Busy but not overcrowded. For those of you concerned about Covid, the staff were masked up and the tables spaced enough to feel comfortable. Hand sanitiser was available as well.

The service managed to hit that fine balance of just being efficient enough that you never had to wait to long but not so efficient you felt intruded upon or that they were in a rush to get you finished and out. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, couldn't find anything there to fault at all.

There is a Deposit taken for booking at the time of writing, £30 in my case. Please don't let that put you off, frankly, if that's all they charge for no shows then they're selling themselves short in my opinion.

In summary, fantastic food, nice atmosphere, excellent staff. Go and enjoy, your taste-buds will thank you
