Good Resatuarant, and will suggest all to visit

I had five friends from out of town come to visit and we stumbled upon Sapori while looking for another restaurant. It looked like it had a nice atmosphere so we went inside. Food was beautifully presented and even better tasting. Prices were right on the money for the portion and the location. Overall just a wonderful neighborhood place with a friendly staff and great kitchen. All around great dining experience

Sapori Ristorante provides exceptional service...

Sapori Ristorante provides exceptional service and great food. Prepare to have yourself completely divulged into a full on traditional Italian experience. I come from an Italian background and I have to say that this restaurant offers some of the best seafood and pasta dishes that I have ever experienced. It was a wonderful compliment to the show I had gone to see in Stratford. I wouldn’t miss out on this place for a second!

Simply the Best

Friday was our first time at the new location. We already knew that we would have the platter - it was great from our last visit nearly a year ago. What a superb meal - a light,lemony ceasar salad for two followed by seafood- mussels, shrimp and scallops in a tasty tomatoe sauce accompanied by pasta cooked and seasoned to perfection. We had to leave the last few spoonfuls but took the leftovers home. Our 13 year old son exclaimed the next day a lunch " this is the best lunch that I've ever had!" The lasagna at the next table was said to be the best as well. This restaurant is surely one of our favourite in Stratford.

Salty food

Other restaurants that I wanted to try before the show were all full, so my friends and I walked into this restaurant. Although the restaurant seemed full, they were able to accomodate us and greeted us nicely. The decor was ok and service was ok too but the food........ I tried a lot of authentic Itanlian cuisine in Toronto...and this restaurant's food was, by far, below the standard I was expecting for authentic Italian food. The pasta sauce was salty...I sample tasted all my friends dishes...and they were all salty. This is not just my opinion as all my friends felt so and they kept drinking water. The portion is good but the taste...I wouldn't recommend the place nor go back to the restaurant.

The absolute worse experience

We arrived at 4:45PM without reservations but this was not a problem as only two other tables were in use. Service was slow, my wife had time to return to the Avon to pickup my glasses and come back to the table and we still had not been seen by anyone. This slow service peaked when we had to ask for our coffee three times before it was served. I had difficulty finding any spinach in my Ravioli and the Lasagna was over cooked. As I was signing my bill I told the owner about the slow service and my dislike of the Ravioli. At this point she became confortational, accused my wife of lying, telling us the waitress had received awards, therefore the service was not slow, there was spinach in the ravioli as it was made on premises, this was not a true statement as it was a premade type. She continued in this manner until my wife asked to leave the table as she was not interested in hearing our comments. As we were leaving, the owner continued her tirade by saying we were not the "kind of people" she wanted in her place. She need not worry, I would never go and will advise anyone who asks not to go as well. We had my wife's 90 year old father with us,in a wheelchair, and there was no visible handicap entrance and no sign pointing to one. Overall, the worse experience I have ever had.

You can do much better in Stratford than going to this place

We were greeted upon entering and our reservation was honored. The server appeared and told us that they were out of two of the entrees. The remaining menu entrees we observed left much to be desired with little variety. The manager (wife of the chef) came over and accused us of lying when we suggested that the internet did not address the lack of variety in the menu. She stated that she develops the copy for the internet and it always stresses pasta, chicken and shrimp. I indicated that the internet site I visited was not their restaurant exclusively to order" but rather one that describes many Stratford eateries. She said " we can leave if we do not see something we would like on the menu. At that time it was 8:00 PM and we had nowhere else to go. We settled for pasta and the kitchen eventually agreed to prepare some chicken parmegiana (previously indicated to be sold out). The management was RUDE, the food barely average and the evening was spoiled. We will never go back to this place. Thank heaven for the superlative musical play we saw at the Avon. It saved the day.

My girlfriend and I went in without reservations and almost went somewhere else because we were too hungry for the 45-minute wait, but since the theatre-goers were just finishing up we went for a walk and then returned. We had an amazing meal. Our server Pamela was so nice and friendly, and attentive to our meal/needs. The food was outstanding. Tasty, HOT, and perfect serving size. The only thing we didn't like was that the air conditioning (or some kind of cold air) was blowing near our table. However, that did not take away from the amazing evening. It is nice also to see the family-run establishment with staff that care so much about it's success. We will definitely return when we are in Stratford next time. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My husband and I sat at a quainte table for two. We were soon greeted by our friendly server who told us of the special for the evening. I have to cut out cream in my diet so the server suggested the Seafood Platter for two. She informed us that people come back for the Seafood Platter every year that they visit Stratford. She was right. The Seafood Platter was awesome. It was served with a delicious spagetti with all kinds of wonderful flavours. The sauce in the seafood platter was amazing. We were so impressed with the level of service, and the food. This resturant is one of my top favorite resturants ever. We will be back again.

This is a restaurant that we end our visit to Stratford with our grandchildren aged 12 - 16. They just love it. The food is fresh, authentic and delicious. The service is warm, attentive and personal. It is worth the price.

We made reservations and were seated with a coat rack overhead. Good thing no one was wearing a coat that night! My husband ordered lasagna and I ordered chicken scaloppini but both menu items were not available. Can't understand why? Settled for boring pasta dishes priced at approx $20 each. Service was slow, unfriendly and unattentive. We sat with empty plates in front of us for a long time. Finally another server cleared them away. My husband attempted to order dessert but that also was not available. Unless you are willing to order their "fixed menu" don't waste your time and money at this restaurant. Over priced pasta and bad service! As we strolled the area waiting for the theatre to start we noted all kinds of wonderful restaurants that we wished we had gone to instead. NEVER AGAIN!!

The Osso Boco was to die for. Our meal was fabulous. The B and B that we were lodging at highly recommended Sapori's Ristorante for dinner. The server was friendly and prompt. Sapori's Ristorante was a wonderful experience for us in Stratford. We will tell all of our friends.

The service is poor. The staff are not overly friendly. We only had 1 1/2 hours to eat and then where rushed out because they had other resevations coming in. There was not enough time to sit and enjoy our meal.

This was a spur-of-the-moment dinner choice, as we couldn't find the restaurant where we had made reservations, and it was raining! But what an excellent choice it turned out to be; the food was pure ambrosia, and we had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary. The only downside was the loss of my husband's spring jacket, which had been appropriated by another guest from the communal coatrack - might suggest a better arrangement for outerwear than that, but otherwise a wonderful evening.

This was my 4th visit and I am always so pleased with the food and atmoshpere as it is always amazing. I have yet to be disappointed. This is true italian hospitality at its finest. The food here is better than some of the restauants i have eaten at in Italy itself. Very accomodating staff. I have been there with large parties and also as a couple and the service was wonderful regardless of size. A++++ DEFINITELY WELL PRICED FOR VALUE AND QUALITY AND SERVICE!!!!!!
