First rate in every regard. Service professional, knowledgable and friendly; food tasty and large portions; quiet enough and had a neighborhood feel.

We went back because the owner sent us a handwritten note and gift certificate after we left a feedback card which was a very nice gesture! Food is great and big portion sizes for the price. Live jazz on Tuesdays was nice and not too loud.

We loved the food and the service here! It may seem expensive but the portions are very generous! And a $10 cooking fee makes it very worth it to bring your own bottle of wine. The only thing we didn’t like was that when it’s packed it can be hard to move around (the tables are packed pretty closely) and hard to hear conversation besides the people right next to you.

Not in the West Loop but thought I would still share a locally owned small business.

We are from Colorado and this gem has never disappointed. The food is amazing, portions large, never so packed you don’t get a personal experience.

My 8 year old even loves it here. They printed her name on the menu today for her birthday and made her feel special when most places are like “here’s your candle move on.”

For anyone looking for a great neighborhood experience and to support a local business. Stop in 🍝 — at Sapori Trattoria.

Great ambiance and service, a real neighborhood gem we enjoy every so often. For the price I think there are better old world Italian restaurants in the city with more flavor in the dishes, hence the 4 stars. Sapori allows you to bring in your own bottle of wine for a $10 corking fee, but by doing so you can’t use any other coupons or deals.

Came on a Saturday night and couldn’t wait to leave. It was so packed and noisy you couldn’t carry in a conversation. Food is good but not worth the aggravation.

We had a great birthday dinner for a friend. Our waiter brought 3 desserts on a plate for the 6 of us all on his tab. We tipped him extra of course!

This is probably our tenth time at Sapori. As always, they meet or exceed our expectations for wonderful food and an enjoyable atmosphere. Diners at Sapori always seem so happy, including us!

I had dinner with friends and had not been to the restaurant in about a year but chef Anthony has put together a organization that delivers a 100% excellent Dinning experience it was like I had been there just the week before I look forward to going back more often

We went on Valentine's Day, which was a mistake. We were seated not only on an aisle, where the hostess would lead customers to the upstairs dining room, but also right next to the door. So we were crowded, people were constantly bumping into the back of my chair, and then whenever the door opened, we were greeted with a gust of cold air. Once a woman carried her coat as she walked passed us and her coat grazed half the food on the table and almost spilled by date's glass of wine. The server seemed to know it was a sardine-like atmosphere and did his best. The food was okay but not worth the dining experience.

Food was very good, service was awful. Took forever to get drinks and once the food was served we couldn’t find our waitress for 45 minutes. It was a Sunday evening and not busy so I’m not sure where she was. Will not go back just from the service alone.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. However, the noise level was ridiculous. You had to shout just to be heard by the person across from you. Since I usually want to speak with my dinner companions, this is a big negative for a restaurant. The tables were very close together, and they had way too many large groups in a relatively small room.
