In a Nutshell

Lush red drapes soften sounds of live music as candles illuminate traditional Italian dishes such as truffle-infused fettuccine

Like a bad actor, Italian food is often pelted with tomatoes and ridiculed for its inability to feel. Eat up while empathizing with today's Groupon to Sapori D'Ischia in Woodside. Choose between the following options:

  • For $29, you get dinner for two (up to a $77 total value) that includes the following:

    • One antipasti plate (up to a $16 value)
    • Two entrees (up to a $26 value each)
    • One dessert (up to a $9 value)
  • For $49, you get dinner for four (up to a $154 total value) that includes the following:

    • Two antipasti plates (up to a $16 value each)
    • Four entrees (up to a $26 value each)
    • Two desserts (up to a $9 value each)

Each day, Sapori D'Ischia transforms from a specialty food shop selling cheeses, cured meats, and oils into a classic Italian dining room filled with intimate cloth-topped tables and twinkling candles. The tiella di polipetti alla griglia—charred baby octopus sleeping soundly in a candlelit terracotta crock—is an appetizer oft-ordered by regulars, and the asparagi al forno con canestro di pecorio—oven-roasted asparagus nestled in a pecorino romano basket with a toasted pine-nut blanket—is frequently asked to do Gumby impressions. Dining duos or quartets can watch and learn as Sapori's servers arrive at tables to prepare the fettuccine al'Antonio, a heaping portion of al dente pasta stirred inside a wheel of imported parmigiano reggiano cheese and sprinkled with prosciutto di parma and organic white-truffle essence. Patrons can alternatively dig into the kitchen-prepped dishes such as the costole di maiale—wild-fennel-encrusted pork chops flanked by black guanciale lentils and whipped potatoes. An extensive dessert menu crowns savory achievements in ambrosial flavors with the burnt-orange crème brûlée and tortina al cioccolato chocolate cake, served warm alongside chocolate-chip gelato.

Like its cuisine, Sapori D'Ischia's interior is rustic and romantic, decorated with lush red drapes and paintings of Cupid farming. Diners can enjoy live Italian opera on Thursdays, and on Fridays and Saturdays, an acoustic-guitar-and-percussion duo performs Brazilian music, jazz, pop, and rock requests.

Great food, atmosphere and friendly staff. Extra fun on nights with Italian opera. Only wish you could get NYC tap water at the table instead of water shipped in from Italy.
