About Us

It all began in Sicily in 1982, when Salvatore was lucky enough to spend more than eight years working with the 'king of Olives & Antipasti’, the very man depicted in our logo.

He passed on all of the passion and dedication to Salvatore, inspiring him to carry on the art of making high quality products. In 1991, Salvatore moved to London with his wife Tiziana, with the dream of being high quality producers of traditional olives and antipasti and together they decided they dedicated themselves to introducing these delicacies to the UK market.
The dream came to life due to passion and determination the following year, when Sapori D’Italia UK was formed.


In 2010, a second, state of the art establishment being built from the ground up, in the heart of Liguria; the home of Pesto.
By no coincidence, the location is within a close vicinity of our P.D.O. Genovese Basil fields, which allows us to guarantee the best possible quality and freshness of our main ingredient, truly respecting the ‘farm to fork’ concept.



When COVID-19 first hit in March 2020, causing restaurants, hotels, pubs and cafe's all to close, Giuliana and Domenico (Salvatore's & Tiziana's daughter and son), had the idea to bring all of Sapori D'Italia's fantastic products straight to your homes. In no time they launched the first ever Online Shop, showcasing all of the fantastic products Sapori produces, along with a vast range of unique, high quality Italian products, with a fast and reliable home delivery service all across the UK.
