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 The decor is outdated.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.

We were in Clifton to see a friend perform at a nearby tavern, but we wanted better than "bar food" for dinner. Trip Advisor reviews were great for Sergio's, so we made reservations. The decor is kind of dated, but with food like this who cares? Everything that each of the four of us had was wonderful. Restaurant is BYOB... More

Not located in the best section of Clifton, Sergio's interior is something between a Baroque cathedral and a brothel. Although we had reservations, we still had a good 15-20 minute wait for our table as we watched a more favored regular get seated, even though they arrived after us. However the owner was sufficiently apologetic about the delary. The food... More
