We used to like going here - the food was much more New York/New Jersey than typical Richmond fare (read: it had flavor) but when we tried to go a couple of weeks ago - it was closed. And now the phone is disconnected. Sad.

Great Italian food. Have a semi private room for parties. Very friendly service, sometimes not fast. Good variety of food and deserts.

Visited after reading rave reviews. Did not have an exceptional meal. Would have hoped for a bit more elegance, the place has no atmosphere, the food was bland and boring, the wine list uninspiring, and the wait staff hard to find. We love good Italian and have had good Italian, but this was not it.

Authentic Sicilian cooking. Excellent and diverse menu. Homemade hot bread, great wine selection, delicious entrees. Amazing polenta with parmigiana. And you cannot beat the price. Will definitely come back next time in the area. Lovely wait staff too.

Based on the reviews, I really expected this place to be pretty good. Boy, was I WRONG! The waitress was pleasant but she seemed to not know any answers to our questions pertaining to the menu. Which is weird because I thought that was the first thing a waiter/waitress would learn. We ordered mussels as an appetizer. It was fairly... More

Done exactly how I would have... More

Have gone here twice in the last couple of weeks with two different friends. The first time I had the Chicken Parmesan sandwich with fries and enjoyed it. My friend ordered the homemade chips with her sandwich and they were good but not as good as the fries. My second visit I ordered the turkey club and fries. The prices... More

After being in meetings all day, wanted to try something familiar, something satisfying and delicious. Our group decided to head to the family owned Sapori Ristorante Italiano. Excellent service and the food is top notch...made from scratch!!! I had Grilled Scallops in a cilantro cream and pistachio sauce with asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and creamed polenta (yes I know, lots... More
