A born and bred Californian, Sabatino is the eldest of four children. It was during his senior year at the University of California at Irvine that he auditioned for a school play on a lark. The play's director was so impressed by Sabatino's work, that he promptly offered him the lead.

The actor went on to make his professional debut in the play, Sweet Bird of Youth, with Ed Harris at the Gene Dynarski Theater in Hollywood. In 1982, he landed the menacing role of Chip Roberts on the nighttime hit, KNOTS LANDING. A series of prime-time guest spots followed with Sabatino eventually landing yet another menacing role, Lawrence Alamain on DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
