Comments from owner and waitress that they were quite busy!
You don’t tell customers that are excited to come to your restaurant this!
It’s the holidays! What would one expect!!
Food delicious but not hot
Everything about the restaurant is just fine - food, service, atmosphere, and when we went (outside of busy hours) it was quiet, one of my top criteria for a restaurant. Not too many vegetarian options and almost nothing vegan.
As first timers at this restaurant, it was a pleasant gastronomic experience!! The food was excellent and the bread was perfect. The waitress Julia was exceptional!! Will be back for sure!!
Always great. Owners love the customer. Always feel welcome and known. Truly a cozy environment and delicious food. Salmon superb. Ps get new printed menus.
We were looking for a place to have an Italian dinner and found this restaurant thru Open Table.
The food was great, but it was difficult to enjoy the meal with my family as the restaurant was quite noisy. We were sat in the back where the door was kept open so there was a chilly draft. Our server lacked presents. Examples are handing appetizers to someone in our party, when it should have been placed In center for the entire table and we had to repeat ourselves multiple times when talking to her at times which was frustrating. She lacked common sense.
This is our go to place for Italian comfort food. Their pastas are excellent, among the best in our area. The fish is always excellent and the Rigatoni Rustica is unmatched anywhere. The servers are fast, competent and friendly.
I recently took clients to celebrate a home purchase. Sapore is always THE place. Food, service and ambiance - excellent!
The best italian food in the bay area! No exaggeration
Great food! Wonderful pastas and other dishes. Very generous pours on the booze. Helpful wait staff. I’d come back!
Excellent salmon, lovely setting, great salads, would return again.
The food is delicious and our service was very good... For a local neighborhood restaurant - it is truly a joy!
Also, reasonably priced....
We always enjoy this restaurant whether we go as a couple or with a family group or with friends -- Good food, pleasant service, relaxing location.
We went on a week night. The ambiance was pretty bland - maybe because it wasn't quite dark yet and the place was not too busy that the decor was so obvious. It could use more festive decor. The food was good, but not great. I feel the caesar salad had too much dressing. The chicken took too long to cook. It took a while to get the food as a result. The kids pasta was not that kid friendly - too many big chunks of tomato versus a puree. Service was very attentive and friendly. Prices were high given I was not impressed with food or ambiance.
Good food served quickly in a place run by Italians.
We had gone to Sapore a month or two before and had some sort of prepared dish and a pizza. The prepared dish was amazingly good and the pizza was B-.
Took two friends there Friday last, and it was excellent (no pizza this time).
I had a sautee'd fish and two had the prawns. Everyone was happy.
The waitress (and her minion) were efficient and unobtrusive.
I had an affogato for desert and was happy. Four dinner w desert and one glass of wine at a good price.
We were surprised that out waitress was not familiar with some of the choices on the menu, so she could not provide any recommendation for those items in that regard... seriously?! Although she was young and seemed pretty new, that was still no excuse. I also would expect a high-end authentic Italian restaurant such as Sapore Italiano to offer paparadelle pasta, which was a let-down. Other than that, everything was fine as usual.
We always enjoy our dining experience at Sapore Italiano. From the warm and welcoming atmosphere to the delicious dishes on the menu, Sapore aims to please and succeeds. It’s not unusual for the owner to greet you by name and sit down at your table for a few minutes to chat. It’s a neighborhood kind of place but if you’re from out of town you’ll quickly find yourself brought into the fold of this hospitable establishment.
Another great meal at Sapore.
Great food, ambiance and service.
I have been going to Sapore for the last 5 years. The food was good especially the gnocchi with gorgonzola perfection. But the angel hair past this time was gummy. The big problem was the service. It was awful and it seems to have been a problem the last couple of times we have been there. These people need to be trained. They really have no clue. They were courteous but no idea how to service wine. The bottle was put on the table unopened. Luckily it had a screw top. No ice bucket. The drinks were totally messed up. I totally talked up this restaurant to my family and was totally embarrassed
Have been going there for years. Great service, wonderful food, friendly staff and excellent food!
The food was delicious but the restaurant was excessively HOT. I was so uncomfortable that it took away from the experience.
On a busy night, food was poorly prepared--one pasta dish was tough, one fish entree was overcooked and dried out, the servers did their best to compensate for having to go up and down stairs and try to take care of too many people. Not a great experience.
This is one of my favorite places to eat in Burlingame. Authentic Italian cuisine, excellent service, always fresh and delicious,
Very relaxed atmosphere with good service. Pasta dishes are excellent. Will definitely return.
Very delicious food with good service and reasonable prices
It was nice to eat "al fresco", the afternoon was very nice and Im glad they have tables outside. Good move.
Food was very good and server attentive. Major complaint is noise level made conversation almost impossible.
The service was fine. The hostess and servers were all courteous. The food was sort of what we expected at an Italian restaurant in the burb. I think most people would probably find it “fine” but this was not what we were looking for. I don’t think we’ll be going back.
Good food good drinks, the beer was delicious 😋 nice night to eat outside. Walking in the area was nice also
Excellent neighborhood restaurant in Burlingame. Consistent good food and service.
The food is always good and although it was loud for my parents . . . it was fine with me:) Love our hostess She works hard and is always smiling!
Father’s Day! They have a limited menu. While it was good, it would have been nice to post this online.
Outstanding Bronzino! Just wonderful. This is a neighborhood favorite.
Outstanding service makes this a lovely option if you are in the mood for Italian food. While the brussels sprouts did not hit a high mark for us (we like them crispy), the Ceasar salad was top notch and the homemade pastas were excellent. We enjoyed the warmth of the atmosphere. Seemed like a lot of regulars were dining here on a Saturday night, which is always a good sign.
We enjoyed the arancini, our fish and veal. Thanks
What a great find! Loved everything we ordered. The place is hopping so making a reservation is recommended. Started with arancini rice app and then ordered from the nightly specials. Delicious.
Good food and good wine!!
Staff provided us with great service and a private space to celebrate. Food was excellent
The food is outstanding and authentic. The wait staff is warm and outreaching and provide fine service.
The owner is interactive and makes clients feel valued.
