SAPORI TRATTORIA – 2701 N. Halsted St. Chicago Il – 773-832-9999 –
Q-Tips say: You want Italian? Sapori Trattoria is one of the better restaurants, especially if you are an avid Pasta person. Hugh servings, decent drinks but the wait staff could pretend that they are half enjoying themselves.
It was Pasta dishes all around. They did not rush us – being mature diners, we would NOT allow that (in a nice way) to happen, especially since they were not that busy when we arrived.
Linguini alle Vongole – Homemade Linguini pasta sautéed with fresh clams, garlic, and a touch of onion in a white wine olive oil sauce. Two of us had Spaghetti Barese – Fresh spaghetti sautéed in a rich red sauce with veal meatballs and mild Italian sausage. I believe one of us had: Pennette Cardinale – Penne pasta served with grilled artichokes, chicken, shallots and sun-dried tomatoes in white wine tomato cream reduction sauce. The spaghetti Barese had huge meatballs and Italian Sausage and a very large portion of spaghetti. Mrs. Q had to take some of her remainder home. Sometimes the company, ambiance far outweigh decent food and drinks.
