“Nice little find”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We always go to the same restaurant on our visits to Blackpool, but wanted to try somewhere different just for a change. We tried here because of the tripadvisor reviews, and glad we did. The restaurant itself is a lovely place and the food was presented well and was tasty. We ordered a bottle of the house white, which was quite nice but would have been better if it had been properly chilled, had to ask for ice to put in the wine, which I prefer not to do where ever possible. The service was efficient enough. The only thing we didn't like was having to sit in the foyer and have our order taken then being shown to a table. This, I suppose, is a personal preference though. Overall a pleasant experience and we would visit again on our return to Blackpool.

“One of the best steaks ever”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Just some bruschetta and salad to kick off with the house red, then fillets with bardola and pepper sauces. Stunning..... For a Tuesday evening it was also booking only, so obviously a favourite amongst the locals. Glad we had booked!

Had rare child-free night so chose Sapori on basis of reviews. Were unlucky as lots of dancers there from competition at Winter Gardens who thought they owned the place - some v arrogant. Soup starter was great, but partner's pate was a very thin slice. Main gripe was that my tomato / basil soup seemed to be basis for the sauce on my veal main course! Tasted exactly the same and no way of knowing from menu description. From somewhere that sees itself as fine dining I'd have expected the waitress to have advised against that starter-main combination. Partner's chicken was fine if a bit dry. Service ok but only effort to chat / be friendly came when paying! Wonder why that often tends to be the case...

“best italian in blackpool”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Went while on a short break in Blackpool due to being disappointed with the one we normally go to, this place was recommended by our hoteliers at Raffles hotel. Lovely and modern place, excellent staff and a wide menu choice. We were served promptly and the food was beautiful. Will definitely return when next visiting Blackpool.
