We hadn't been to Sambuco for quite some time and seeing it was under new ownership thought we would give it a try. We were made to feel very welcome by the new owners who as it happened we knew from a previous restaurant they had worked at. The service was good and very friendly and the food beautiful. The...

They made a very nice desert selection to share and sang happy birthday. The food is great and authentic, the staff friendly and create a nice ambience,... More

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.
