Quality,just ok,prices high.Our group had couple of pizzas, pretty good ,one white with veggies and sausage with pepperoni also good..Should be little bigger for price!

Fantastic restaurant from top to bottom. Large outdoor patio very pleasant to dine on. Not a weak dish on the menu and one of the best waiters ever. Can't recommend this place enough.

Had a wonderful dinner the other night at Sapori's Ristorante. Ate inside but they also have a wonderful patio outside with a fireplace. The place has been redone with a wonderful new interior and bar area. Food as usual was magnificent. Great and extensive wine list (had the Rombauer of course) and asked for the Veal Parmigiana--done perfectly. Wife had... More

I was very excited to dine here because of good reviews I'd read and because friends invited us to join them (they like it here). Our waiter was very nice and hailed from Italy. The menu was appealing and definitely Italian. I was just not happy with the food, though. The flavors did not sing, nor did the textures or... More

Pizzeria Sapori is attached to Ristorante Sapori. The pizzeria offering wood fired pizza and the ristorante is more upscale. You do need a reservation for the restaurant I have not eaten in the pizzeria but can say the ristorante was superb. The staff was friendly and had good recommendations. I was very please that the waiters were from Italy so... More

We have been going to this restaurant off and on for about 6 years. One time it is good and the next time it isn't. I finally figured out what the problem is. It is the waiter. When we get this certain waiter he acts like he is too busy to help us. He is arrogant and sometimes downright rude.... More

Certainly not cheap, but the thin-crust pizza is really very good. A variety of intriguing toppings are available, and these extend beyond the typical. Solid professional service. A very nice addition to the full-range Italian restaurant next door.

Gorgeous courtyard seating. The chef knows how to handle Italian food and it's DELICIOUS!!! Great menu, beer wine and cocktails. Excellent waitstaff. Wonderful hostess! It's located in a strip mall but the courtyard makes you feel like you're in Italy. Huge stone fireplace and gas heaters for chilly nights. Full restaurant with inside eating as well. YUM!

Sapori has added a nice pizzeria to it's already excellent restaurant. We still order from their wonderful Italian menu but the pizzas are excellent and many families order there. The service is always informative, fast, friendly. Your hostess Ann is always accommodating and gracious. If you want to eat in outside patio reservations are best. When available the Ossa Buco...

Light terrific pizza. Sit on the patio for an awesome evening. Great salad and appetizers to boot. Bring your own bottle or order one of theirs. This place has had a terrific meal and a great experience with every visit.
