We took an early dinner at Sammy G's on the patio. The food was excellent, large Caesar we could split, super good minestrone soup. The pasta is very fresh, the they have lots of options to choose from. The live entertainment was great to listen to, as he set the mood with lots of Old Blue eyes tunes.

we had to sit in the bar to take advantage of Happy Hour. Ambiance not as nice as in the restaurant, however, food and drink prices and portion sizes were to our liking. Staff was friendly, helpful. Food was tasty .

We had a great happy hour experience in the bar. The staff was very helpful and attentive, and the food was excellent and cheap. They have great specials including on the fantastic lasagna. Food is good for sharing and the $6 martinis are strong. Definitely a place to pop into if you are looking for a light bite happy hour.

We decided to try Sammy G's for dinner. We had made three previous trips to PS within the last four months but had not tried this restaurant. First the positives. We had a table located outside in the courtyard next to the fountain. Very nice. For the price point the food is very good. My main issue is the staff.... More

We sat on the patio, they had nice warm heaters so we could enjoy the patio even during the winter. The hostess stand was a bit disorganized, but the wait staff was excellent. My shrimp pasta was amazing and fairly priced. My husband's food was alright, nothing to write home about, but by no means "bad". At the end of... More

We went for a business luncheon with a large party, but it was great service and the food was fabulous! They offered wonderful outdoor patio dining in the January sunshine. The caprese salad was delicious. The pasta with marinara was so tasty for just a basic meal. My husband ordered chicken parmesan and it was wonderful. A couple at our... More

We stumbled onto Sammy G's on our way back from Palm Springs Airport for an adult beverage on a Friday night.We heard music, thought it was a record, it was actually the Evaro Brothers playing "Brandy" by Looking Glass. We had a great night, the music they played was our style, 60s, 70s and 80s. No grunge gang banger stuff,... More

Delicious food and generous drinks combine for a great stop daily from 11:30 to 8pm daily. We tried the mussels in white wine,the lasagna and the beef sliders-all delicious. Drinks were a generous pour and a handful of nice beers on draft-go once and you will return

We were all in the mood for Italian food. Found Sammy G's on the Trip Advisor site. We all enjoyed our dinners. My friend ordered one of the pasta dishes but wanted some changes made to it. There was some confusion and the dish she was served was not what she expected. They were great about taking it back and... More
