Sapori Ristorante - Newport Beach
Great service. Great pasta dishes.
Loved my meal. Great minestrone soup!!! Able to accommodate my meal with my special requests, delicious!!!
Nice patio, nicely decorated. Food was good, table had 2 desserts which we weren’t that fond of.
Service was good but server was all business, not that friendly which we are accustom to servers with a bit of personality. Will return and will know what to expect now!
Being a wine lover, I’m not big on twist top wine bottles. I order Calamari Fritti as an appetizer, it was not up to the par, not crisp at all as it should be. Main course we had Penne Otero not bad but it shouldn’t be a Chef’s signature dish. A signature dish in my book it has to be something that wows you. I had Scallopine Saltimbocca, the veal was perfectly marinated and cooked topped with prosciutto added more flavor, it was a perfect presentation and taste, good job. Not to forget the service it was excellent!
The ambiance was really nice just missing a touch of soft jazzy music. Definitely will come back and experience and explore more dishes!
Thanks to the crew for always making the dining experience so special...
Pino is great and Sal and Ann do everything to make their guests feel special and always well cared for...
Always outstanding. Food and service.
We had not been to Sapori for many years and decided to return for my birthday lunch with my husband, son, and his wife. The setting outside was amazing, the food was superb - great and varied menu - and the service was so friendly (very Italian!) and helpful. This was just the most perfect Birthday lunch ever!
The atmosphere is really nice. We went in the evening and sat in the patio, adjacent to the fireplace. It was faintly lit and the noise level was low, which is ideal. The food was fine, but the main draw is the atmosphere.
Christmas Eve dinner here was very good.
Meet friends for Christmas Eve Lunch, service was excellent, Food was spectacular.
Our an us Boat Parade trip!!! We always start with amazing food and drink here! 17 years and counting...see you soon! ❤️💚
Our table was ready timely, service was excellent, wine was even better.
A little loud, but everything was perfect our the Holiday dinner.
Birthday, the cake they bought us was terrific
Thanks for making the dinner special.
Our waiter Roberto was fantastic and the food was outstanding. Best service and food in Newport Beach!
It was a lovely Christmas dinner with a dear friend. Sapori is a tradition with our group of friends and it’s a great place to make memories!
Clearing a table took longer than my daughter and I expected. But it was worth the wait.
Great locals place,you must order a side of angel hair with pink sauce with your meal.Prices have not risen in 10 years.Waiters there from day one,great recommendations. My favorite Italian restaurant in Southern Cal.
Love the food
Lovely patio, warm, even on a cold night, thanks to the fireplace and patio heaters. Food was mixed: calamari was delicious, but not hot. Carpaccio was tasty and beautifully presented. Lasagna was hearty and delicious. Veal chop was too large and a bit too raw (medium was requested doneness) Service was not speedy or particularly attentive, in spite of the early hour and empty tables. So would I recommend Sapori? There are other restaurants I would recommend first.
This is the best Italian restaurant around, and we are Italian!!
Sapori has always been a favorite of mine, for many many years. I went with a small group of girls for lunch, and we had a nice quiet lunch. The service was great, and we all had a bowl of lentil soup and the fabulous Insalata Sapori, all delicious!
I have been a regular customer for years and have always had a delicious meal. The ambiance is so nice -with a cozy comfortable feeling.
Our waiter was very professional engaging and fun.
Love the courtyard!!! Good was so good
We requested an inside table, had a wonderful waiter!
Food was outstanding as always.
My friend had never been here for lunch, but will be coming again soon!
The food was good and with plenty of choices. Had chicken parm that was not on the menu but they made it happen..there was a few large groups so the noise level was high. The only negative is they served you quickly and seemed as though they wanted you out of there. I would go back but maybe not on a Saturday night. Make reservations!
Sapori feels like a small neighborhood restaurant. The service was great, and so was as the food!
Everything was wonderful! The patio is just beautiful and the service was outstanding! I had the filet this time and my husband can’t find a pasta that he does not love.
Dinner was very good and the service was also good. We were celebrating our friend’s birthday. She really enjoyed it. Thanks for a nice evening.
Always authentic with highest quality ingredients. Sapori's off-menu dishes are often an unexpected surprise like Osso Bucco.
We love the wait staff and are never rushed through our experience.
We just had a beautiful evening.......thank you !!!!
Standard Italian cuisine. Sat on patio-nice, not noisy. Had the blackened ahi-way too salty almost inedible. Was on a bed of plain spinach. Not much thought went into dish or preparation. Same could be said for ceasar salad. Price did not reflect quality
Our go to place for Italian ... I am sure that if they did another flavor, it would be the same-excellent!
Sal works hard to make it so and the staff that he has assembled follows his lead.
Treat yourself and enjoy a meal at Supori...
Always outstanding in all respects. Not a better place for a consistently excellent meal in Newport Beach.
Thanks for caring...
We had a terrible server. He didn’t make the experience fun at all
great spot, excellent food, service is very good and easy parking.
One of our favorite places ! Always great food ! Very accommodating.
Got together with friends (6) for an evening dinner. The food and service was great. Not to much noise. We could also hear each other!
The best in all Newport Beach!
Food, service, and always a friendly place to enjoy exceptional food...
Hostess asked if we preferred this or that table. Nice. Next time, we'll request a table on the patio, and bring a light coat if it's a bit chilly. Looks very pretty outside.
Our server, MASSIMO, is the consummate professional. Attentive without hovering. Massimo made good suggestions, watched us to ensure prompt and smooth service and made us feel welcome.
We highly recommend the Carpaccio and Capellini Checca (with even more garlic next time). The fresh basil and parm were great on the pasta.
The diced tomatoes, black olive paste, capers and basil on the bruschetta tasted fresh and nice. Next time, will request thinly sliced bread, lightly toasted.
The bread in the bread basket was warm and very good, too.
Wine: La Braccesca Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2015 was perfect.
We very much appreciate the birthday cheesecake, Massimo, and your warm suggestion to us to come back. We've already chosen our next entrees.
Self parking right outside the front door. Overall, very enjoyable evening.
