Collingswood is a community fortunate in having several excellent Italian restaurants with Sapori Trotteria standing out as attracting community residents and visitors looking for a destination restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.
This restaurant is a notch above the group of Collingswood's best Italian restaurants ----especially in offering authentic Italian (not Italian-American) dishes.
Owned and operate by Chef Franco Lombardo, born in Palermo, Italy, he honed his cooking skills both as a chef in Italy and at the well-known La Locanda Del Ghiottone in Philadelphia before opening Sapori.
Sapaori Trattoria is in an attractive setting with a medieval castle ambience. The rustic 64 seat dining area is done up with stone floors, rustic brick walls adorned with large lion head sconces, wrought iron balconies and chocolate dark brown velvet drapes across windows tied back with heavy satin roping. The lighting is dimly lit emanating from globular chandeliers strewn throughout the dining room.
