We’ve named our pizzeria “Sapore Vero” for a very good reason: Translated from Italian to English it means “real flavour”, which is something that we strive to provide in every single pizza that we serve to our customers. Tired of industrial pizza? We want everyone to be able to sample the real taste of Italian pizza. If you’re ready to experience that taste, make sure you visit our pizzeria in Beckenham Junction today.

Best pizza I've ever eaten outside of Italy. Pasta really good as well. Could have done with an extra profiterole with the dessert!

Always appears busy, usually a good sign in any restaurant. It was a nice atmosphere with very good service from our waiter. I had Avocado with prawns as a starter, tasted ok, but only had 6 prawns in it which was smothered in seafood sauce. My wife and I had the Apollo (chicken) pizza, tasted nice, but hardly any chicken on it. My son had ham and mushroom and asked for extra ham, but received it with extra mushrooms. When you’re paying £12-15 per pizza, you expect more for your money.

Food good and service to match. We were lucky to get a table in the main (small) restaurant. The other room looked gloomy and is operated as a cafe during the day. Saluki starter for 2 was really excellent, quality meats and cheese portion very large. Pizzas good but probably too much dough for my liking. Wood fire taste just what you want for a great pizza.

Great authentic food. Great drinks and service. Cosy. But a terrible smell of drains would come over out table every now and then. Staff seemed oblivious to it.
Maybe a stink bomb!

Amazing food but the restaurant is small so only has space for a few customers to sit down. I thought I was lucky to get a booking but on arrival, we were taken through a through-way to an area next door that has lots of seating but the atmosphere, lighting, tablecloths etc was nothing like the restaurant itself. It was just a big dark empty room with lots of tables and a counter. It turns out the area is used by Sapore in the evening; by day it is a cafe under a separate name and sitting there felt like we were in a closed cafe. What a shame.

Having already booked a table, took a while before we were served but apart from that, friendly staff and tasty food. Food and cocktails good value but wine overpriced. I’ll definitely be coming back.

We have been here several times before and really liked it. This occasion was dissapointing as once we were seated we did not get seen to for 30 minutes no drinks etc. There seemed to be enough staff that evening.

Sapore Vero is one of our favourite pizza places - it never fails to please. The pizzas are good (my husband is Italian and very fussy about his pizzas!), the staff are friendly and the wine is good....its just a nice place to go.

Another gem in beckenham.
If you like pizza you will love this restaurant.
The pizza base is made to order and could be the tastiest pizza base you’ll ever try , the ingredients are fresh and service is excellent.
We worth a drive or walk to .

Food was good and excellent value, however, kitchen was under pressure (insufficient staff?) and therefore service was quite slow

A lovely authentic little Pizzeria which is definitely a cut above the usual chain pizza places. I had a lovely pizza that truly reminded me of Italy.

Well worth a visit

Can’t say enough about the excellent dining experience we had at Vero. The server was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive but not overbearing; the cocktails well crafted; good wine list; and the food was outstanding. We had the burrata and tomato appetizer, then the sole and duck with squash risotto/ probably the best risotto I have ever had! Kudos to the chef.

Really lovely food, generous portions - everything made at the premises but the service was slow so avoid if really starving and wanting a quick bite, this place makes you savoir your food.
