Places to Eat – Sapori @ New Town

Sapori Ristorante Italiano is located in New Town, located in a large space at the corner of Center and Courthouse streets.



The new restaurant is the second location for Sapori. The first location opened in 2011 in Chester just outside Richmond. Amato said the idea behind the restaurant was to create a diverse menu, including fusion American-Italian dishes such, as corn bread and pancetta stuffed pork chops.


Sapori means “flavor” in Italian. Amato said he and his brother grew up around a mother and grandmother who loved to cook and that they have always had a passion for it.



The Amato brothers and their father opened the Chester location together. While Dario will remain there, Luca and Giuseppe will be at the helm in Williamsburg.

Proprietors Giuseppe and Angela Amato and their two sons, Dario and Luca, are from Carini, a small town on the outskirts of the capital of Sicily. The Amato Family has been in the restaurant business for over 10 years and delight in making people feel welcome while enjoying a taste of home.


“Sapori” is the Italian word for “flavors”, and our vision for Sapori is one of authentic, fresh flavors that are a fusion between traditional Sicilian recipes and modern culinary concepts.  The dishes, most of which come from generations-old family recipes, feature fresh-grown spices from our indoor herb garden. Contrary to the fast-paced world in which we live where prepared foods are full of preservatives and additives, they use fresh ingredients and handmade sauces as the foundation of our flavorful menu. They shop for local ingredients when in season and display work from local artists to support our community, the place they call home.

Sapori’s  offers an upscale-casual dining experience in a clean, comfortable atmosphere. They cater to the smaller family members too with a play table, baskets of toys and a healthy and fun kid’s menu for coloring.


You can read reviews of the Chester location in Richmond magazine by clicking here.

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, operating from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Amato characterized it as “casual fine dining,” speaking of low lighting and custom decorations, including paintings by local artists Lynn Hosegood and Dorothy Grebos.
