Sapori Trattoria slings upscale Italian cuisine for discerning diners, who nibble their pasta prizes in the restaurant's warmly lit dining room. Two people easily share a generous four-course dinner, which starts off with a choice of appetizer such as a platter of calamari fritti, its little squid plunging into batter before heading for the fryer and filling a plate alongside warm red sauce, or the asparagi starter mixing the verdant vegetable with a splash of lemon. Salads sate appetites for vegetables with selections such as the insalata stella, a harvest-rich blend of greens, belgian endives, provolone, apples, and raspberries. Entrees include dishes of pasta, fish, and a menagerie of meats, including the vitello osso buco alla pugliese, a slow-cooked veal shank nestled atop a mattress of meat lasagna. The restaurant's dessert menu satisfies diners' daily crème requirements with traditional tiramisu or panna cotta for gourmands to savor while admiring Sapori's lush décor, with long drapes covering oversized windows and dense, warm tablecloths keeping delicate tables from catching a cold.

Inspired by his experience on his grandfather's southern Italian farm, Sapori Trattoria's chef Anthony plates traditional Italian cuisine. Both upscale and casual, the restaurant surrounds its classical dishes with unassuming decor, from the outdoor patio's parasols and strings of lights to the indoor dining room's billowed curtains, saffron tablecloths, and skateboard half-pipes.
