The owner-chefs are two brothers from Sicily (Rosario and Nuncio Incorvaia) who prepare Italian food exquisitely with traditional recipies. We live on the island, and had passed their restaurant frequently on the way home to the West End, so we dropped in for lunch yesterday. Sapori offers $10 lunch specials which include salad (very fresh and crunchy, with balsamic vinegar and oil dressing), Italian bread (herb-seasoned olive oil $1 extra) and a choice of light and crusty panini (choose your filling) or al-dente pasta (spaghetti, cannelloni, manicotti or ravioli -- choose your filling) with choice of ragu or marinara sauce. I chose the cannelloni with salciccia (Italian sausage) and cheese filling and ragu sauce. Heavenly. The sauce was just comfortably spicy enough to tingle the tongue without causing you to break out in a sweat; the meat finely ground and savory. My wife chose the panini with Sicilian meatballs and ragu sauce, which I sampled and found delightful -- perfect blend of quality ingredients and spices. Located a bit off the beaten path on Stewart Road, a couple of blocks from the Premiere movie theater, the restaurant is inviting and unpretentious, immaculate, uncluttered, bright and airy with clean architectural lines. The brothers welcomed my request to visit the ample kitchen, which, unsurprisingly, was also immaculate, tidy and well ordered. This is the real deal, folks, for locals to visit regularly and bring their visitors to sample the best the Island offers by way of Italian cuisine at an "in" place they might otherwise overlook.

Was good :) pasta is definitely better than olive gardens. I get thier shrimp fettuccine every time.
I find it funny how other reviews will judge this restaurant based on another, that's all good and fine - but hands down this place has the best Italian food on the island - service is great - pizza is far superior to others!!! Only place I order from.
I recently ate Russo's New York Pizzeria. They had a medium size gluten free pizza my girlfriend had not had a pizza in 2 years and really enjoyed it.Thanks Pat White
I have a family of 5, and everyone said that the food was excellent. The baked ziti that I ordered was agreed to be the best.The service was great, and our waitress was very nice and answered all our questions very well.I would definitely recommend Mario's.
Awesome food, attentive service, cozy atmosphere. Only complaint is too small...Needs more tables so more people can enjoy!
Fantastic Pizza! Love this place! Great specials, great salads, great Pizzas. I eat there at least once a week. Veggie Pizza is thin crust and loaded with fresh vegetables. Always good, never disappoints.
Ginos is "adequate". You're not getting a NY or Jersey pizza or any other Italian dish, and like elsewhere on the Island, they don't exactly know what "veal" is, but for a reasonable lunch, it can't be beat, and the pizza is about the best you'll find on the Galveston.
