Sapori Trattoria – Chef owned Italian food

I discovered Sapori Trattoria while researching new Italian restaurants for my wife’s birthday dinner. Sapori is an Italian restaurant located on Halsted, just south of Diversey, in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

What makes Sapori stand out to me is Chef Anthony. He is also the owner, so you know that he is going to take pride in the food that is prepared. The pastas are homemade and the sauces are fresh, the service is good and there is something for everyone on the menu. And the menu is seasonal which provides various options throughout the year. My favorite is the Spaghetti Barese, which includes veal meatballs and Italian sausage.

Chef Anthony also does a good job of promoting his restaurant. If you are signed up for the mailing list, he will send coupons for your half birthday, with a note saying “I bet no one remembered your half birthday.” In the summer they have some outdoor seating. Sapori Trattoria has become a go-to location for a nice Italian meal.
