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

The food (depending on what you get) varies from average to slightly above average. The staff is different. The younger staff seems to goof off quite a bit while the older portion of the staff is always friendly and focused. Definitely try a large pizza with alfredo sauce and chicken!

My wife and I had a lunch date here and had a nice meal. I had a calzone and she had pomadoro. The service was slow but attentive, we had several refills and garlic bread. The food was good, with healthy porfions. I could only eat half of my calzone since it was large. The meal was reasonably priced. We... More

We went on a Friday night. Room was packed, artist painting in the corner, and a musician playing some wonderful music on the guitar. Wait service was very knowledgeable of the menu, made great recommendations, and were just fabulous. We had an appetizer of seafood cakes, scallop picatta, and blackened yellow fin tuna. Ended the evening with coffee and cheesecake.... More

The food is so good: Salad is fantastic, garlic rolls are out of this world, and my favorite dish is the manicotti, although the fettucini alfredo is pretty great, too. Their Eggplant Parmesan is quite tasty as well. Okay, maybe I have a lot of favorite dishes from there!!! The ambiance is pleasing, especially with the live music. You may... More

I have never been here without taking an hour to get my food. Even in the old location they were slow. I've always loved their greek salad, manicotti, and garlic butter bread but it takes too long to get it. Another review said it used to be a convenient store. It was actually a Heavenly Ham.
