Thanks to Trip Advisor folks for leading us to this small out of the way REAL Italian restaurant. All the appetizers were great , especially the stuffed meatballs .. yummy mozzarella inside. The other dishes were fabulous and loved the sauces with all.

I am not a huge fan typically of Italian places - just so much pasta and often, not a lot of flavor. Not so here - there was GREAT flavor in both of the dishes we got, and a nice size portion too! The atmosphere is terrific - low lighting and nice...great for couples I'd say. And attached is a... More

Great place to eat, drink and talk - good hosts. Owners stopped by table to ask us about food. Good for group meetings too.

We've been coming here for years, it's a always good. If the owner Pablo is there he is very friendly. I just wish it wasn't in a strip mall.

This is my wife's and my go-to place for Italian, for a romantic night out, for Valentine's Day, for one of their wine dinners and for their Wednesday/Thursday pizza specials. Part of the reason we go here a lot is because most of you haven't found it yet! We can nearly always get in without a wait. And while we... More

Service is so warm and personable. We go there often on special occasions. They have a really neat bar with entertainment adjacent to the restaurant.

Went here with friends for wine and dinner. Wine was expensive and the food was just so-so italian. Like another reviewer said "it's overly oily and not a lot flavor". I even prefer Olive Garden over this place...at least the OG gets creative.

A lovely local restaurant. Try their ravioli specials or the great wine bar weeknight pizza deal-- a pizza and a bottle of wine to share for $20. Excellent soup, fresh ingredients well prepared with friendly service and a good wine list. Privately owned by a husband and wife, Sebastiani's has a charming atmosphere and euro decor.

We have been going to this restaurant almost since it opened and can report that the food is exceeded only by the personal service provided by the owner, Pablo and his sister, Maria Carmen, and head-waiter, Eric. There are menu specials every week matched to a special wine. The Italian dishes are well prepared, interesting and innovative. Better yet, they... More
