Benvenuti! Unlike many others ‘Sapori’ does not have only the ‘Italian name’ but it is indeed a truly authentic Italian family business, run with passion and dedication. Situated in the heart of Anstey, only 10 minutes away from the City centre and the beautiful Bradgate Park, Sapori offers modern and elegant Italian flavours whilst maintaining the family values and traditions that the owners have built their business on.
Sapori’s Head Chef Andrea Scarpati is a native of Torre del Greco, Italy. Andrea worked in several restaurants in Italy and in England before opening his dream restaurant Sapori with his wife Cristina and her brother Luigi in May 2011…a dream that has been crowned with many awards: in 2015 Best Italian Establishment in England at the National Food Awards;
in 2016 Best Restaurant in Leicester & Leicestershire by Niche Business Awards,
Best Pasta Dish & Best National Italian Restaurant at the English Italian Awards.
In March 2017 Chef Andrea has been selected to be a member of Chic, Charming Italian Chef…an association of many great Chefs (more than fifty Michelin stars) who propose an authentic and innovative Italian cuisine.
A great satisfaction that highlights the authenticity of our Italian restaurant!
The menus and the Chef’s specials, changed regularly and designed to satisfy every palate, are created by using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. There is plenty to choose from: top-quality seafood and meat dishes, homemade pasta and the delicious desserts.
Everything is homemade from the breads to the gelato and sorbets.
Sapori offers a separate bar area where you can relax and enjoy your drinks...and perhaps order some nibbles if the mood takes you! This is a beautiful function room which is available to hire for any celebrations or get together.
We hope to see you soon and we will do our best to make sure you enjoy your Italian experience at Sapori
and you will return again and again to try the ever changing menu.
