Good, but not exeptional.

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.

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

This is a short review. We are "regulars". Really like this place so read the other reviews.... I have previously reviewed this excellent restaurant but had a very bad experience the last time. The cocktails were very skimpy! My wife actually requested a strong drink and would be happy to pay extra. The Cosmo was extremely diluted. So we again... More

Like its partner restaurant, Rosies, a classy place where you invariably get good food, wine and service at a reasonable price. Also nice for al fresco eating/people-watching in spring/summer/fall

Restaurant is cozy and warm. Nice lighting in dinning room. I ordered the shrimp and pasta with baby clams. The meal was delicious when it was served fresh and hot. The gelato was a perfect end to the meal. Our waitress was attentive which made our dinner experience enjoyable. Go went you can, won't be disappointed.

I had an early dinner with my wife and mother-in-law and I thought the food and service was okay, but nothing special.

We had lunch at Sammy's on December 26th. Setting is lovely and staff is most accommodating and friendly. We shared a salad (plenty) and I had the Salmon served with asparagus (excellent-- and the asparagus were firm) Hubby had Veal Parm which was enormous and he ate the whole thing!--it was served with spinach. Although I did not have any... More

We are very pleased with the meal and service each time we have dined here. Last night (it was a "Restaurant Week Special") we enjoyed another dinner at this fine restaurant. Drinks were served exactly as requested. Wine was not ordered therefore I cannot comment concerning the selections.We both ordered the scallop appetizer. It was a good sized tasty portion... More

A little pricey, but very good service and food. Menu could use a little updating, but a popular local spot.
