Sapori - Italian Restaurant and Bar
In May 2011 Sapori Restaurant in Anstey first opened their doors, headed by the dream team of Head Chef Andrea, his wife Cristina and her brother and General Manager Luigi.
The restaurant first came to my attention as it used to be the old mens working club in Anstey. I discovered it was to be turned into a Restaurant and thought whoever these people are they must be very brave as it is a massive place to fill. The initial face lift was cleverly executed. Recently Sapori has undergone yet another refurbishment. WOW! It looks amazing and is testament to all their sheer hard work and determination. All three of them should feel very proud as they have ploughed their money back into Sapori, which in this environment must have taken sweat and tears to achieve. Their foresight has culminated into it being one of the top Italian restaurants in the county.
The quality of food produced here is the real deal! Sourdough bread and pasta are made on the premises fresh every day. The menus and Chef’s specials are changed regularly and designed to satisfy every palate. Sapori is extremely flexible and if your favourite meal is not on the menu please don't be afraid to ask - they are more than willing to accommodate, and adjust to suit your taste buds. There is such diversity in the menu ranging from a plethora of starters, to our favourite traditional dishes (like Lasagna, Carbonara, Bolognese, etc.), through to a succulent king sea scallops in “caprese” style, top cuts of British meat to tasty chicken and not forgetting a wide variety of fresh fish dishes. Sapori also offers extensive vegetarian options. Of course no meal will be complete until dessert is served and oh yes, everybody's favourite Tiramusu. However do not miss out on their home made Gelato (Italian ice-cream to me and you) which comes in an array of flavours and is to die for!! The children's menu on offer - enough to satisfy any little bambinos.
Sundays offer a traditional Roast together with a superb selection of delicious dishes of pasta, chicken, fillet steak and fish.
Visit their web site to see what delights are on offer, rest assured you'll be reaching for the phone to book your table. Always keep an eye on their face book page as this team are always up to something, even if it’s for the ever evolving menu. Some of their most popular dishes include beetroot and goat cheese risotto and melt in the mouth fillet steak which have to be their most popular signature dishes. And also to mention their most popular homemade Neapolitan pizza...I would say the best in the county!
Sapori offers a separate bar area where you can relax and enjoy your drinks and you can order some nibbles from the Bar Menu if the mood takes you. This is a beautiful function room which is available to hire at reasonable rates for any celebrations or get together (birthdays, leaving do, christening, wedding reception, etc.). This fantastic venue is offered with FREE hire when food buffet is required with a minimum of 40 people attending.
You can also treat your friends and loved ones with gift vouchers who are sure to appreciate this thoughtful gift.
Sapori is not only an authentic Italian restaurant - it's an experience.
