Benvenuti...Welcome! Sapori is Italian for ‘flavours’ and this encapsulates the character of our authentic Italian family restaurant, run with passion and dedication. Situated in the heart of Anstey, we are only 10 minutes drive from Leicester and close to the beautiful Bradgate Park. Sapori offers modern and elegant italian fine dining, whilst maintaining our family values and traditions.

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 family dream that 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. Best Italian Restaurant in 2018 at the Midlands Food Drink & Hospitality 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.
A great satisfaction that highlights the authenticity of our Italian restaurant! 

The menus and Chef’s specials change regularly and are designed to satisfy every palate. We create each dish using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. There is plenty to choose from; top-quality seafood and meat dishes, homemade pasta and delicious desserts. Everything is made from scratch, from the bread selection to the gelato.

Sapori offers a contemporary bar area where you can relax and enjoy your drinks. This beautiful function room is also available to hire for any celebration or get together.

We will do our best to make sure you enjoy your Italian fine dining experience at Sapori and hope you will return again & again to try the ever-changing menu.
