Sample our new dishes at Sapori

Published by Harj Grewal

In the true spirit of having a good spring clean we’ve been busy overhauling the menu at our Atlantic Hotel Chelmsford restaurant Sapori, introducing some fresh new mains and starters alongside our Italian pizza and pasta offering.

Launched just this month, our newly revamped menu offers lunchtime and evening diners a contemporary take on classic Italian dishes, with some British and Asian flavours thrown into the mix.


Starters and mains

We’ve complemented starters like our Italian grilled red pepper and mozzarella arancini with a South Asian influenced dish of prawn, lime and chilli bites, which our chefs have paired with sweet chilli relish to enhance the tropical coconut and lime flavours.

Main dishes now offer a departure from Italy, with the addition of three kinds of burger (beef, fish finger and vegan) alongside barbequed chicken brochettes served on a bed of salad, and a rich and sumptuous lamb shank, slowly cooked to mouth-watering tenderness in red wine and tomato sauce.


Pizza and pasta

Italian food has always been the heart and soul of our Sapori restaurant and the new menu is no exception with dedicated pizza and pasta sections. Authentically wood fired to perfection, our hand stretched 10.5-inch pizzas offer a vegetarian margherita, alongside a spicy pepperoni, both of which are priced competitively at just £8.95.

Our pasta choices are extensive, and it’s within this aspect of our menu that our chefs have truly excelled themselves. Slow cooked beef shin parpperdelle is a standout dish that meat lovers will find hard to resist, while the caramelised pear and goats cheese ravioli is one of our favourites from the vegetarian side of the menu.



Of course, no meal would be complete without something sweet to round it off and if you save space for dessert you won’t regret it. From a sweet and savoury Espresso cheesecake, which beautifully balances coffee bitterness with a vodka infusion, to our Trio Berry Amore – for those berry lovers seeking fresh and zingy flavours – there’s a pud to tempt even non dessert-lovers.

Sapori is open for lunchtime and dinner reservations in Chelmsford seven days a week, for hotel guests and non-residents alike. To book a table for your party call Atlantic Hotel Chelmsford today on 01245 268168 or book via our online booking form.
