Established in 1989, Sapori Ristorante is a culinary experience unique from any other. Owner and chef, Sal Maniaci, has brought his firsthand knowledge of Italian cuisine to Newport Beach. A genuine Mediterranean setting coupled with experienced and knowledgeable waiters add to Sapori's authenticity. The remodeled patio featuring a fireplace, outdoor heaters creates an intimate atmosphere perfect for romantic and warm outdoor dining. Signature dishes include penne otero, farfalle Salmone, scallopine gorgonzola, and several other original pasta and meat dishes. Traditional Italian appetizers and desserts such as calamari fritti and tiramisu and an excellent wine list complete the menu. The restaurant is perfect for special occasions, private parties, baby showers, and weddings.

Sapori Ristorante offers a unique off-menu item. Roughly 20 years ago, owner Sal Maniaci added it as a special and ever since guests have been raving about it and asking if it was available. Till this day, it's one of their best sellers, even though it's never been added to the menu!

Veal Chop: grilled veal chop in a reduced demi-glace sauce with wild porcini mushrooms, a splash of cognac, and a touch of cream served with roasted potatoes and a vegetable.
