Description: An enchanting restaurant in the very hearth of San Jose, with authentic Italian cuisine and spotless service. Everything is hand made. Try the Festa della Pasta, for a fix price you can try 5 different handmade pastas. Enjoy our brick oven long fermentation pizzas and visit our new space, La Bottega del Gusto, where you can find the best of our artisanal products and take them to your own place...

We walked from our hotel through the city center and then to Sapore for dinner. The owner advised us on a nice Sangiovese to accompany our fresh pasta dishes. The highlight was the Ceasar salad, served in a Parmesan cheese "bowl"- delicious. After espresso and dessert, the owner offered us a complimentary after dinner drink- we chose lemoncello.....YUM!! Nice evening, not crowded, nice decor.

After a long day of touring the Paos volcano my wife and I decided on this place for dinner. We were not disappointed! I had the Corvina Sapporo (Sea Bass) with shaved almonds and a wonderful sauce. It might just be the best thing I have ever tasted. My wife had the Caprese pizza, to include a coffee wood fired crispy base with wonderfully fresh ingredients! Then came two lemonchello's to cleanse the pallets before shared desserts including lemon sorbet, tiramisu, and finally a wonderful semifreddo! All this was accompanied by a few nice brief conversations with the very attentive owner. BTW the waitress was very patient with our rather poor Spanish language skills. Do not miss this place!

We walked over from our hotel as we were looking for something different from the local fare. Restaurant was about 20% full yet it took over 45 minutes to get our food. Portions were good-sized (almost too much food) and the perfect temperature. We enjoyed our meals and wanted dessert but were too full. We were surprised at the total bill for two meals and drinks. It was the most expensive meal we had the entire week. Good food, with a bit too long a wait, you'll just pay a disproportionate amount for it.

I always want to have a pizza anywhere I am in the world. After checking TA we decided on this one and were not disappointed. Perfect Italian style meal with Italian music and very tasty pizzas with a thin crust.
