We have been to sambuca several times, we even organised our works 10th anniversary bash there. We are never disappointed with the food, its delicious and the atmosphere is great. It's like a typical Italian restaurant that we used to go to when we lived in Italy. We are now going back there with the whole family so they too... More

So Sambucas has got its old name back under the new owners after being named Bella Napoli for a while under the long established Ivano. The good news is Tony and Carlo are very welcoming and doing a great job. If anything we would say the menu is slightly better and the Calzone that I had was much improved from... More

The food and service were great and I would definitely recommend. Great atmosphere and the management were fun and ensured our every need was met. Under new management apparently as of about 7 weeks ago.

Visited while the ledger was on, was packed but service was very good and wasn't delayed in any way. Food was great, I ordered the steak it was the best Iv ever tasted. Good atmosphere and would definately visit again. Not a cheap night but i suppose you get what you pay for.

Went here on a Thursday evening after work for a bit of a treat. There was a large table of rowdy women, presumably on their office Christmas party, but obviously not the restaurants fault and not a major issue. We hadn't booked but they managed to seat us. We received no warm welcome, just indifferently guided to a table. The... More

Lovely 3 course meal! Really polite members of staff and watered to our every need. Although some of my friends pudding was still slightly frozen mine was delicious!! (Staff dealt with this matter) and they never asked how we wanted our steak cooking, but it was cooked exactly how I like it which was great!! Definitely going to go back... More
