There were seven of us for an early dinner. We were seated in a nearly empty dining room. We ordered drinks and two came to the table wrong. Then we ordered. I ordered the Chicken Samantha ( a regular, long standing menu item which is normally served breaded with fresh tomato, caprese, carmelized shallots, deep fried polenta cubes). My tomatoes... More

Arrived late without a booking for Sunday lunch and got the last table in this reasonably large restaurant at the end of the High Street. The food was very good and the service reasonable given that is was so busy. Portions are a sensible size, not over large as they can be in the US. The tables are very close... More

We just had dinner at this very attractive establishment. The food was nicely presented and delicious. We started with mussels in a light red sauce and continued with an excellent roasted cod with white wine and risotto. Overall a very enjoyable

OK, so the food was very good. But there were a number of issues that made this place only average. My biggest complaint were the table tops. Sounds odd - right? Well, I have never seen anything quite like them. There was a cushion on the top of the table which made glasses and bottles very very unstable. After the... More

I experienced Sammy's for lunch as a first-time diner. Admittedly, I had very high expectations on the basis of a rave review given by some friends. Perhaps my expectations were a bit too high. The service was appropriately attentive, servers friendly and efficient, and Sammy's menu is sure to provide something for everyone. On the whole the food was good,... More

We have eaten here at least 50 times -- and the consistency is wonderful. A wonderful standard menu plus excellent daily specials provide ample choice. the waiter service is always prompt, courteous and efficient. And some of the nude paintings on the walls certainly stimulate the appetite! Excellent warm Italian bread with a hint of anise, a moderately priced wine... More

Quick review, Monday night 8:30, a few people there. Seated quick since place was empty. As noted in other reviews the Bar is lacking in knowledge, glassware & service. NO San Pellegrino water? Really now come on, to Italians or anyone for that matter Saratoga tastes like dish water. My Veal Milanese was very good h tender but not prepared... More
