    We ate outside on the patio. Waiter, Al, was excellent. Salad came quickly with the warm bread. Both were excellent. I had the Benzini special which was pleasing presentation and delicious and plentiful. My guest had the pasta with clams. She was also delighted with her choice. We would definitely return for another meal.

    Sapore is the one restaurant we always include in our Cape May trips. I was disappointed to learn they've stopped serving their signature appetizer platter which was delicious. The waitress said the Caprese app was similar so we tried it but it wasn't the same. Please add your signature app to the menu as I'd definitely pay for it. Otherwise everything about Sapore is perfect!

    Service always amazing, food beyond excellent! The freshest quality seafood! Papitza (spelling nope) Is truly amazing and Linda the owner is very hospitable. Linda goes around to each of the tables to make sure everyone has the finest dining experience! Linda puts 150 % percent into her restaurant with the beautiful flowers outside that reflect her beauty inside! I go there as often as I can!!

    We have eaten here many many times over the years. At least twice each time we are in town. This was by far our worst experience. We were sat in the back nearest the parking lot and no air conditioning was on. Another patron asked for the unit to be turned on as it was 85• outside that day. The waiter, Miles, we had seemed newer and wasn’t a good communicator. He kept sort of lurking by our table rushing our order. Then the order took an hour (6pm- 7pm exactly) to arrive with no explanation as to what the hold up was or any kind of a time frame. A woman patron was smoking hanging out the dining room door, but the situation was quickly resolved by the hostess. Our food was delicious as usual when it did arrive. Then we had a coupon to use that Miles did not want to honor. We asked him to take it to his manager and he did and it was honored and no problem. Over all it was poor service and extremely slow, extremely hot inside when we arrived before the AC. We will be back and just hope things are better next time since this is our favorite place for dinner. The hostess was awesome. I did not get her name.

    So disappointed and upset! My clams were overcooked and there was so much sand in my clams and pasta entree I had to reject it. They did not charge me but treated me with disdain, as though I were lying. This is my first bad experience at this restaurant. Unfortunately, I brought a friend who had never been there and I had told her how great I thought it was. Her clams were overcooked but the sand was minimal. She just had the appetizer.

    We come every year and are never disappointed. I had the seafood bisque and the table shared fried calamari, brusetta and mussels. All were delicious. I had the salmon over spinach with roasted (to perfection) potatoes. The others had the seafood with linguine, seafood risotto and the eggplant parm. All were yummy. The cappuccino was rich and creamy and the tartufo was different but still good. Can’t wait till next time.

    We have been coming here for years. It's always been a must do. Food has always been on point. This time was a little different. After paying the bill and leaving a 20% tip the hostess had the nerve to come to our table count out the money in front of us and ask " are you sure you don't want to give more money". I found it rude and unjustified. Left a bad taste and we will not be going back anytime soon, if ever.

    The atmosphere and meal were both very very good. We dine at all the fine dining restaurants in Cape May. We were hoping for a traditional Italian meal, and that we had! The service left much to be desired. We were rushed to order, our waiter loomed over us most of the night including the 40 minutes we waited for our entree. We would like to go back but service must improve.

    They knocked it out of the park. Great service and a nice sized portion. One thing I noticed is they are not cheap on the meat portions. Most Italian restaurants just add more noodle. Sapore adds more meat. I appreciate that. Great time!
