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. Andrea’s dream
has been crowned with many
awards: in 2015 Best Italian
Establishment in England at the National Food Awards;
Best National Italian Restaurant in 2016 and
Best Pasta in 2016 & 2017 at the English Italian Awards.
In March 2017, Chef Andrea was selected to become a
member of Chic, Charming Italian Chef.
This is an association of many great chefs who boast more than fifty Michelin stars between them.
They are all dedicated to authentic and innovative Italian cuisine, and Andrea is the only UK-based member.
This incredible achievement highlights the authenticity of our Italian restaurant.
