Thanks for staying late

We had planned to meet some friends from out of town Friday night. Our friends had some travel issues so they ended up getting there kinda late. The wait staff allowed us to order late and got us our food rather quickly. They did not rush us even tho we stayed past normal closing times. The... read more

I love family owned restaurants and always try to support them with my business. The food is sub par. My mom ordered a $7 salad and most of it was browning and wilted. I ordered my 2 year old daughter a personal pizza and sent it back twice because the dough was raw. I just ended up sharing my small... More

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

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.

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
