Sapori Restaurant Review

If you like authentic Italian cuisine, Sapori is the place. Located in the heart of Fisherman’s Village, Marina del Rey, we were greeted and seated by the owner, Stefano Baccianella, which started our night of exceptional dining. Sapori’s large glass windows offer a dramatic view of the Marina waterfront, no matter where you are seated. Tim Covvea, who manages Sapori, gave us a very warm welcome. His menu suggestions were invaluable, and made for a night of exceptional food choices.

We started with an amazing appetizer. We had the Antipasto Misto; witch
included a combination of grilled vegetables, bruschetta, meats, mozzarella and
home made olive paste. We also had the Gamberi Alla Milanese which is
pan-fried shrimp breaded Milanese style.

Our next course was Insalata Rustica; Mixed with Arugola, fennel salad,
radicchio, Belgium endive, roasted shallots and tomatoes, tossed with vanilla, vinaigrette and toped with gorgonzola cheese.

If you are a shrimp lover, this is a must have dish. The Gamberoni al Verde;
Jumbo Prawn shrimp marinated in herbs and lemon white wine sauce and grilled to perfection, served with vegetable skewers and rosemary roasted potatoes.

Our main course was Lasagna Sora Lecca, which is Stefano’s Mother’s
recipe. It is an individual home made lasagna layered with a rich meat
ragout, béchamel sauce and Parmesan cheese. Without a doubt, this
is the best Lasagna I have ever had anywhere. Period!

Filetto al Portobello. If you are a steak lover, this is your kind of dish. Beef
tenderloin sautéed with Portobello mushrooms then deglazed with Chianti
sauce and topped with Gorgonzola cheese served with mashes potatoes.

You can’t leave Sapori without trying the Traditional Tiramisu, and the
Zabaglione e sfoglie. These two excellent deserts are a great way of
ending your dinning experience here.
