Much Better

The quality of the food has gotten much better. I had a chicken dish with pasta, mushrooms, peppers, and asparagus. It was delightful. My wife had eggplant parmesan that looked delicious. The value was good. We will definitely eat here again.

As some who just moved here after 14 years living in Italy, please do not try to tell me that this place is authentic Italian. For one thing, the owners are Greek, not Italian and it shows in much of the food they serve here although I will say that my wife loves the Greek salad. My kids like the... More

This restaurant is locally owned place that has pretty good food at good prices. The pizza is our normal choice and it has a nice thin crust without a lot of sauce. Dinner rolls are always good especially if you like bread bathed in garlic butter.

Pizza is pretty good for Sumter standards. The house rolls are soft buttery goodness with garlic. The pasta has a sweet red sauce which I like. And they deliver!! Pretty regular customer. Interior is nothing to talk about, but small and kept clean. Would recommend take out or just jeans and t-shirt if dining in.

This is kind of a gem in hiding. The pizzas were really delicious and custom made to our choices. We ordered three pizzas and waited for them to be cooked ( & the restaurant was busy) but the wait wasnt long at all. Great place to eat!

This is a fun little restaurant, small and friendly. The pizza had such a great flavor, who can live without a great pizza? Loved it - had the Greek salad too! Awesome, will always make that a stop when I am there.

You're better off going for lunch because the specials are reasonable and yummy. Its also a lot less busy. Overall the service is good and the food is worth the money. This is a decent restaurant for Sumter.

I grew up in Sumter and returned to live there recently. My parents (who have lived in Sumter for 30 years) took me to their favorite restaurant, SAMBINO'S. As someone who has seen the world and eaten Italian food everywhere from Italy to Guam to Sumter, this Veal Marsala is the best I've ever tasted. Every meal is so perfect,... More

Small, quaint restaurant with great food. The garlic rolls are delicious but be sure to not fill up on them. The server was very attentive and never let our glasses get empty. My wife and I took two out of town guests there who very pleased with the food and service. Everyone but me had food to take home because... More

Pizza was great, the crust and the sauce were both very nice. Antipasto salad was fresh but nothing fancy. Definitely will go back when I'm in Sumter. Note that like most other non-burger restaurants in Sumter, they are NOT OPEN on Sundays. If you want to eat in Sumter on a Sunday, you're pretty much stuck with Mickey D's or... More
