One is the type that bubbles over with sometimes loud enthusiasm and makes everyone feel welcome. The second kind is more reserved, oriented more towards couples and adult... More

Wow- this restaurant never disapponts. Tonight was no exception- from the fresh Sambuca salad, to Chilean Sea Bass, my palate was dancing. Don't pass up this place, but do think in terms of $50 per person if you have salad, dinner, drinks and desserts.

What a delightful find in downtown. Bacon wrapped sea scollops as appetizer were delicious. Ravioli's with light sauce excellent and the desserts will more than satisfy. Have been there since with friends and meals continue to amaze.

Wonderful quiet little place.... attentive service... fabulous Italian cuisine. Had a coupon from Restaurant.com and wanted to celebrate birthdays with a friend. I had seafood pasta and she had chicken parm. The bread, the salad and the entrees were fabulous and so reasonable. The service was attentive but not intrusive. This was completely worth the hour drive to enjoy a... More

We were looking forward to our first experience at Sambuca Grill which was highly rated by fellow TripAdvisor reviewers. The food was flavorful as rated. One of our party who ordered their meal was served soup instead as an entree. The waiter apologized and said there was a glitch in the computer and so her meal was not recorded and... More

We would never have found this place had it not been for our hotel staff to recommend it. Thank goodness for that recommendation! The food here was fine, and different from what most Italian restaurants have to offer. The atmosphere could have been a bit better: it was as if they were trying to be posh while they're not. But...
