Savouring Roman and Calabrian Traditions at Sapori


For a genuine taste of Italy, particularly Rome and Calabria, Novocastrians need to go no further than Beaumont Street Islington to Sapori at Tailors.


Opened by Romans Fabrizio and Francesca Virgili in 2021, it is now a firm favourite for locals and anyone looking for the authentic traditions of Italian fare.

Sapori means ‘flavours’ in Italian, and that’s what this rustic restaurant is all about - flavours and traditional cooking that is true to the origins of the recipes handed down through the family.

“Every recipe has a story behind it,” says Francesca.

“We make everything from scratch with the best produce. We import a lot of ingredients from Italy because if we want authentic flavours, we have to. The Italian speck is much less fatty than the Australian speck; the salami is spicier or more flavourful. It is all about the flavours.”

The pasta, tiramisu, and cannolo are lovingly handmade every day. The desserts, a delightful surprise, change regularly. But the real showstopper is the gelato. Francesca crafts this Italian classic without the aid of an expensive machine, right in her own kitchen. The flavours, from pistachio to Nutella, hazelnut, and zabaglione, are a testament to her skill and dedication, much to the delight of returning customers.

Sapori at Tailors is at 10 Beaumont Street, Islington. Phone 4962 3110 for bookings.
