Referred by a taxi driver. Said it was great. Arrived and seated outside. Older woman waitress was rude. Bread came out stale with wrapped butter patties. Can't remember the last time I had to unwrap butter. Sausage appetizer was bland, clams awful. Manager or owner came out and picked up a piece of sausage and threw down on the table.... More

I've been having Sabatino's for a few years now. This is a great place to eat. Wonderful food and atmosphere. The pizza is delicious. So tasty and great fresh ingredients. The sausage sandwiches are the best. Great flavor and the best in town.

Upon the recommendation of a Newport Beach native, we dined at Sabatino's during our stay in the Balboa environs. I have to admit that we arrived late (cabby didn't know where it was) and as a result had to wait over fifteen minutes for a drink order. We ordered promptly and while the wait staff had mentally checked out for... More

Was told I had to try the food. So very glad I did. The location is a hidden gem. The scenic view is not really a great Ocean view, but is a really cool location. Heard about their sausage, so tried it with a meat sauce over pasta with a nice salad. Everything was very good, food service and the... More

We've been going to Sabatino's for almost 15 years. You'll see lots of OC regulars on your visits. Secretly located near the Lido Shipyard; this is the ultimate exception to the rule of location, location. While they have typical Italian, save that for your 4th or 5th visit. Start with the sausage sampler which includes spicy and regular with goat... More

To be honest, I'm actually GLAD that this place isn't too easy to find. It's not really a spot that one would just stumble upon. I think it's what adds even more charm to the place. The unassuming exterior of the building had us guessing, "Is this the place?". Once you walk up to the building, you'll notice the inviting... More

My husband mentioned trying this place. I thought he was lost when he drove towards a neighborhood and towards the shipyard. I had no idea this place was there! We arrived on a Tuesday with two little ones in tow. We sat outside. Heated gas lamps were nice. The waitress was amazing!! She had my kid's attention prepared with coloring... More
