This place is small but cozy...Its BYOB and your best bet is to call ahead for a table...I think its smallness lends to its charm as you get the feeling of being a guest in someones house..Even the bathroom is interesting--wall to wall wine corks.!

My wife and I went to Sergio's for the first time, for dinner, last evening. I had read all the glowing reviews and wanted to see the place for myself, in the town where I grew up. What a treat. We had no reservation, but were seated immediately when we arrived about 7pm. We were lucky because all the tables... More

We chose Sergio's Bistro on the basis of previous TripAdvisor reviews, but also because it was near Yogi Berra Stadium in Little Falls, and were celebrating a friend's retirement by taking her and her husband to a ballgame and then out to dinner. We mostly ate the specials of the day and were delighted. The servers were friendly and attentive.... More

From the buffalo mozzarella appetizer to ink Gnocchi with scallops to the cavatelle with chicken in a mushroom sauce to the salmon crushed with crab meat. The specials were endless. Which made me disappointed cause I could not try them all. I was SHOCKED. The food and the service and the atmosphere was very good to great. I wanted to... More

Very good food. Not the best I have ever had, but absolutely worth try. i would come back. I had the seafood pasta, which was very tasty. Our appetizer Calamari Tuscana had a different taste, but was pretty good nonetheless.

I have been to this restaurant several times now and it's by far one of the best! This BYO restaurant will make you want to return and will not disappoint. The food is delicious, the decor is timeless and elegant. The restaurant isn't all that big, but it just adds to the intimacy of the place. A wonderful place to... More

I went with my wife and 3 other friends who were all expecting the food to be good because that's all they had ever heard about this place. Well, there was no disappointment whatsoever by anyone. We brought our own wine and enjoyed literally every bite of everything... even the garnish was eaten. It's literally that good! I had the... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at this lovely little BYO restaurant. The food was great. The escargot was fabulous-out of the shell- but very nicely prepared. The lamb chops and the veal chops were terrific. I only have two negatives-lack of parking and no clamps for the escargot! Service was very, very good. Décor lovely. Expensive but not outrageous. Very... More

My husband and I took my in-laws out for lunch on a weekday. We did'nt need a reservation. We were the only ones there. The decor is outdated. Good food with upscale prices.
