Our Story

Beginning in 2019, Sapori Italian Roots came to life originally as “Sapori’s Italian Food Trailer” on S 1st St. Our journey began with a simple dream to bring the authentic taste of our family recipes to the vibrant food scene in Austin, TX. We transitioned into our new home in Downtown Austin during the summer of ’23. 

Drawing inspiration from our roots in Calabria, Italy, and the Bronx, New York, we have crafted a menu that pays homage to our family’s cherished recipes. Sapori prides itself on offering a culinary experience that blends the essence of traditional high-quality Italian flavors packed into fast-casual downtown neighborhood restaurant. Whether you’re seeking a quick and satisfying lunch or an evening of wining and dining, Sapori Italian Roots is for you. 

Our commitment to excellence extends beyond the plate. We strive to recreate the warm and inviting atmosphere that was prevalent in our family-owned bistros growing up. We believe that dining is more than a culinary experience-it is about creating lasting memories and building connections. Just like our family’s restaurants we cherished during our upbringing, we aim to make every guest feel like a part of our extended family. 

Please join us at Sapori Italian Roots to experience the true essence of both Italian and Texan hospitality
