Restaurant Impossible - Sapori D'Italia - OPEN

Sapori D'Italia Restaurant Impossible

In this Restaruant Impossible episode, Chef Robert Irvine visits Sapori D'Italia in Fountain Hills, Arizona

Sapori D'Italia is an outdated menu of bad food but also a broken family who argue loudly and in front of the customers.

Owned by Gasper and wife Maria other members of the family also work in the restaurant, Gasper is in the kitchen whilst Maria is front of house.

The restaurant is losing money each month and is $200,000 in debt.

The pair constantly meddle in each others areas \, cannot work together and wind each other up.

There is a reputation amongst locals for arguments in the restaurant which has damaged their reputation.

The food is also poor with bland dishes on offer with prepared sauces and the service is poor as staff are left alone to work whilst the family disagrees with each other.

The decor and menu is given a revamp but Robert mostly focuses on mending the fractured relationships amongst the family.


What Happened Next at Sapori D'Italia?

Within a few months business had increased, $8000 a week for 3 weeks following the shows filming but this slowed to a steady $2000 a week increase.

There are not only new customers but returning customers who love the new menu which still includes Roberts dishes but also customer favourites.

Sapori D'Italia is open and reviews are very good on both Yelp and Trip Advisor.

Sapori D'Italia was Restaurant Impossible season 5 episode 7 and was aired on January 23 2013
