Best pizza in the Hamptons

I'm not even sure why I'm writing this review, but I do like Sam's. As a year round visitor to Amagansett, I've been to Sam's many times and just want to make a mention of it. Keep it up!

Have been visiting Sam's in East Hampton for 15 years. If you are interested in casual, basic italian food with good service at affordable prices then Sam' is your choice. This is a favorite for the locals and they don't accept reservations so don't be surprised if you have a short wait. The clear favorite menu item is pizza -... More

There's something special about Sam's foods ... they're genuinely Sam's! Most places you visit, you can say, "that taste's like _____ pizza", but not at Sam's Place. We order it well done and it comes out like a cracker! Yes, like a cracker. The first time I ate it, I found it very strange, but it grew on us immediately... More

My sister, 2 girlfriends and I ate here this week and enjoyed it very much! The atmosphere is cozy and not overdecorated, just a bar and booths. The food was excellent and prices were good,e specially for a Hamptons restaurant. The rigatoni a la vodka was a big hit! We shred a personal pizza as an appetizer because their pizza... More

We go to Sam's usually before the movies. There are many times the restaurant is packed with moviegoers but the waitstaff is consistently friendly and efficient. The pizza with bacon is particularly enjoyable. The prices are fair and the menu is extensive

We eat here often when going to the East Hampton Movies and have never been disappointed. Pizza is great with nice thin, crisp crust and other entrees are just as good. Love this place

My second time at Sams while visiting friends in East Hampton. Both times it was on a Friday evening. No reservations accepted so be prepared to wait at least 15 or 20 minutes for a table. The menu is quite extensive I knew that the portions are large so I split an order of baked clams with my husband. I... More

Thin crust, and the tomato sauce is with fresh tomatos, not a delivered can of sauce. How can I tell other that the waitress saying so. The tomato leaves no red smear wheb... More
