We attend the Illinois Reading Conference every year in March and make a point of eating lunch at Saputo's. It is always packed so we make reservations months in advance. The food is awesome. Their pizza is delicious as are their salads. We all look forward to lunch there and no one has complained in over 10 years of our going there. It's a highlight of our trip.
We stumbled upon saputo's. and were very happy we did. it was wonderful. the service was rather slow and there was maybe 4 other tables. but the food was fresh and hot. the salad with the house dressing was so good.
This is the worst Italian restaurant I have ever eaten in. I am amazed to see all the good reviews here, and can only surmize that someone must have posted them on purpose to give the restaurant a good rating.
We just got back from Springfield, and after this awful exprience, may never go again. The restaurant was touted by several locals, and we were even encouraged to make reservations since we were planning to eat there on a Friday night! When we showed up, the place was deserted. It should have told us something!!
The restaurant is dumpy and non-descript, but the food....is just criminal! And to call it Italian is an insult to anyone of this origin.
As a tourist, I hate going to over-priced places where everything seems to have been bought from the feezer section of a local grocery store, and merely marked up on the menu. Unfortunately, that is how all our food looked and tasted at this restaurant.
There were four or us, and we ordered: Fettucine Alfredo, Lasagna, Italian Spaghetti with Meatballs, and Chicken Cacciatore. Everything was murdered in thick pizza sauce with canned mushrooms. The pasta was dry and inedible, the cheese plastic and unchewable. Chicken Cacciatore was a couple of batter-fried chicken patties (!!) with sauce glopped on top. It looked bad and tasted worse. Salad was iceberg lettuce in huge chunks served in cheap plastic bowls. Antipasto meant that a slice of cheese, a piece of salami, and a pepperoncini was served on the side. Even the bread served at the table was cold and had an after-taste.
Awful, awful, awful! I can't say enough bad things about this place. The price was outrageous for what one got.
My recommendation is to save your money and go to the rooftop Hilton restuarant. The food is better, and at least you have a view!
If you have not eaten the most tender Filet of your life . Get ready. Saputo's garlic filet is cooked to perfection and has to be the best steak in Springfield. The service is always top shelf and the history of the establishment is priceless. It is a must stop for all of our fine cities travelers.
