Osteria Saporino BYOB in Southampton
Sept 2019 – We visited for a delicious Italian Dinner. The food and service were excellent. Osteria Saporino is in our neighborhood but we overlooked it for a while.
They are ‘BYOB’ so we stopped at the state store before heading over. We didn’t have reservations but they seated us promptly in spite of a fairly busy evening. There is outdoor seating available but it was a rainy day and the seating is a bit too close to the parking lot for our tastes.
Our server, Brian, was friendly and efficient. We started off with their Truffle Burrata, a combination of mozzarella, prosciutto, tomatoes and greens. That was a special that isn’t on their regular menu ($14). The plate had a lot more than the picture. We started before remembering to take a photo.
My girlfriend ordered the Chicken Rollatini which is roasted and stuffed chicken breast, prosciutto, spinach and Fontina cheese, in a creamy mushroom sauce. ($20)
I ordered the seafood scampi which was a combination of shrimp and scallops in a scampi sauce with grilled asparagus ($24)
For desert, we split a creme brulee which they list as a Dolce Italiano. ($7). I ordered a cappuccino. That is almost mandatory for me in a good Italian restaurant. ($3.75)
The owner was actively engaged with the guests. The decor tends to make for a noisier environment but not overly so. This is on our list of restaurants to revisit, perhaps with friends.

There is ample parking in the surrounding parking lot. The restaurant is on street level.
