Steak dinner

The wait staff was over whelmed by our large party but did their best. The room was warm and took away from the dining experience. Ordered the rib eye steak and was cooked perfectly to my liking. It was a very nice size but was little too much fat and grainy.

Hi there, Gerald -- we're glad you loved your steak, but of course we're sorry you weren't as impressed with the service at our place as you should've been! We definitely don't want you to feel like you can't bring a large party to our place, and we'll be chatting with the rest of the team about this to make... More

My wife and I decided on Sammio's in Hope Mills, because it is not far from our home and a thunderstorm was coming. It was our 16th anniversary, and the restaurants in Fayetteville were a little too far away to risk getting caught in the storm. We had the potato skins as an appetizer and then each had veal parmigiana,... More

So glad you and your wife decided to check out our place for such a special occasion! It sounds like the two of you thoroughly enjoyed your meal, from the potato skins to the veal, which is wonderful to hear. Thanks for braving the storm to see us, and congrats again on your anniversary! All the best, Louis and Rony,... More

I make a point to frequent non-chain restaurants before any other place and I especially hate giving a poor review on the local guys but our recent dinner at Sammio's warrants a low rating. Let me start out by stating we called ahead knowing that a large group can be a challenge for any place. We had 12 adults and... More

We appreciate the constructive feedback, Vie, especially when you said yourself you don't like leaving so-so reviews -- and we certainly appreciate your fondness for local businesses. It's sad to know that we've disappointed you. The children in your group certainly should've been served sooner, and all of you should've enjoyed your dishes from start to finish.

Absolutely worse "Italian" food I have ever eaten. I would go get spaghettios before eating here again. Hell even the bread was bad.

We're seriously concerned, because this is definitely the last impression we hoped to leave you with, Ron -- and definitely not the norm for us!

eh' It's a small town version of Americanized "Italian" food. I hate even calling it Italian food at all. I don't even consider Olive Garden Italian food, and Sammios is not as good as Olive Garden. Now, if it was considered "American" food, than I think I would rate it better. The service is also very slow. Most people go... More

Of course it's incredibly disappointing to read this review -- we certainly hoped to leave you with a better impression. We always appreciate feedback, whether it's positive or negative, but comparing our place to others in town isn't especially constructive.

I have driven by this place a bunch when in town and finally decided to stop in and try it. When I arrived, it took about 5 mins. before someone came by to seat me.
