Splitting the wine bill

I go out with several singles each week and we require separate bills. We have visited every restaurant on Preston Street and have not had a problem about this except at this restaurant . The waiter was very concerned that we wanted to split the bottle of wine between three people. He said that if... read more

This little italian restaurant was a real find. It is located in a basement but don't let the exterior fool you. The food is absolutely amazing but beware... if you are looking for fast service, then that is not the place for you. They make everything fresh every day. Without a doubt, the best little italian restaurant in Little Italy.

NEVER AGAIN! Im easily pleased when it comes to restaurants but my experience here has just been horrendous! The service was completely and utterly embarrassing. The old Italian man with the suit was the most ignorant disrespectful person I've ever encountered.. The food was decent Italian food but after the way I was treated with all the attitude and eye...

Wow. Just wow. I am in awe. First of all, I'd like to mention I rarely give any place a 1 start horrible review and normally think nice before I scold a restaurant, but this deserves so much more. I am disgusted by the level of service at this place. Our waiter was an older man with white hair wearing... More

My daughter and I celebrated end of school, we found the restaurant by chance. Very small venue with a big atmosphere, the food was good, the service was a bit slow but friendly. It should be on your must try.

My husband and I lunched today at Da Sergio. We weren't sure where we'd choose today in Little Italy but wanted somewhere with a covered outdoor area or at least umbrellas at tables because of the extreme heat. The fact that the food and service were very good was a delightful extra. We've only once had a poor meal in... More

I grew up in the area and have watched Preston Street evolve over the last 50 years. Da Sergio has been around for 20+ years and you either love it or not. My wife and I love it. The portions are fair - this isn't an East Side Marios - but they are more than enough to fill my belly... More

I visited this restaurant with 3 friends, looking for some good authentic Italian food. I will say that we found exactly what we were looking for. The service was good and the food was prepared in a reasonable amount of time considering how great the quality of the food was. I had the braciole, with side vegetable which tasted very... More

They will not substitute sauce or ingredients-upcharge $5-that alone is the reason I won't return.One owner server for the room. As previous reviewer we had a very hard time because they wouldn't split the bill for each couple.This caused us great embarrassment... More

I have been there with two friends for the first time but it is not the last time.... We were welcomed and served in french. They speak 3 langages. The food is more than excellent (real italian), the lamb must have been simmering for the whole day, the pasta and seafood plate is one of the best I tasted in... More
