I eat at Sam's often...usually with my wife. On Thursday the 22nd of May I ate there with a business friend. We ordered one medium pizza and a couple of beers. This time I ordered pizza this way: Thin crust, very little tomato, normal mozzarella. It came out and was PERFECT. In fact the couple sitting next to me said... More

Has always been my favorite pizza place. It's the oldest restaurant in East Hampton. Pizza is consistently good but pricey, my initials are carved into the wall of the back booth!

I have been going to Sam's Bar & Restaurant since I was a kid in the early '60's! My best friendz's grandfather, Sam Nasca, owned and operated the establishment. We would go upstairs to visit grandma and then down to the bar for a Coke. The pizza was good back then (nice thin crust) and it is still the best... More

Sam's is the best restaurant in East Hampton! If you like great food and friendly service for a decent price then visit Sam's restaurant! They have a variety of Italian American foods. Some of my favorite foods are the fresh baked pizzas, the chicken milanese and the baked clams. If you're in East Hampton check it out I promise you... More

There aren't many places to eat in East Hampton that make you feel like you are still in the real world, but Sam's is one of them. We wanted a low key place to eat before the movie and found this small spot. Reminded me of an old-school Italian spot that hasn't changed in years... which I'm guessing it hasn't.... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant for pizza, with the best thin crust pizza. I was very disappointed yesterday to find out that they changed their pizza, it's no longer the extra thin crust. The new pizza was ok, but if you had their pizza previously, you'll notice the difference. I also had called for take out a couple... More

This diner-ish restauraunt is perfect for a meal if you are looking to be a regular person (in regular clothes) in the glamourous EAST HAMPTON. As a year-rounder to EH. Sometimes you just want to go out to diner and not get all dolled up! This is the place to do that! Great food, - small glasses of wine for... More

One of my favorite places in the Hamptons. I love the pizza and the Chicken Parmesan. The staff were wonderful - they really made a fuss of my daughter. Very casual and fun atmosphere. Definitely recommend checking it out!

Sam's has been in East Hampton since the 1940s and it has that long-established feel about it that is becoming less and less common in the Hamptons. Sam's serves traditional Italian with thin-crust pizzas a wide array of salads and dinners, along with a full bar. Sam's is reasonably-priced for East Hampton village and hence is very popular, even on... More
