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.
