Pizzeria Sapori is attached to Ristorante Sapori. The pizzeria offering wood fired pizza and the ristorante is more upscale.

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...

This is a neighborhood gem that I almost hate to review! Everything is delicious and the pizza.... well if I don't have it at least once a week it's a bad week!

Pizzeria Sapori is attached to and is part of Sapori Restaurant, but it is a cafe within the restaurant with a separate entrance. The pizzeria is really nice with a beautiful wood oven in the corner. We were immediately seated and our server stopped by right away offering some wine recommendations. She explained each of the pizza's in detail. After... More

I came here for dinner while traveling for business. The restaurant was only a short walk from the Hyatt Regency. The spaghetti had a nice flavor and texture. The service was prompt and friendly.

After living in Rome I developed a preference for 800 degree oven, thin crust pizza. This place has delicious margarita pizza! You can get prosciutto and arugula put on top after being cooked in oven if you want. Traditional spaghetti and meatballs looked good (friends had it). The burrata cheese with arugula is divine and decadent. Would go back!!
