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...

We went out for my birthday with my wife and parents after just hearing about this great place in Scranton. My father was delighted he could speak in Italian to the very attentive male wait staff. The food was excellent as well as the service. You will NEVER feel rushed and dinner is to be enjoyed. We will definitely be... More

The service was very good, my T-bone steak was perfect and the spinach was awesome !! We couldn't get enough and ordered double serve. I couldn't remember what my friend order was, but he was satisfied with the food. After dinner, the owner came out to say hello and gave us free after dinner drink. It's a little bit pricey... More

My favorite restaurant in Scranton. It's best to make reservations but you can also eat at the bar. You will not be dissappointed.

I've been here several times for pre-concert/event dinners and they never fail to deliver. Most recently was pre "Jersey Boys" at the Scranton Cultural Center. The first thing the waiter asked was if we were going to the show. He knew we had a time constraint. It didn't make a difference with the food we ordered, a seafood pasta dish... More

I'm so tired of poor service and/or seemingly higher-end restaurants trying to fool clients with low-quality food. Sambuca breaks this disappointing trend with a very CLEAN restaurant and polite servers. I appreciate the attention that we received from our host as our reservations ensured one of the last remaining tables. Shortly thereafter, another dining room host told us the specials.... More

We had never been here before, but we definately go again. cute place. I would suggest a reservation for the weekend. We did not have one and sat in the bar, which was fine. food was very good, alittle pricey. You have to order salad extra, not included with meal. the piano player was good but not too loud so...

We visit this restaurant at least once a month. The service is second to none and the food is fabulous. It is traditional Italian food. They switch up their menu nightly. They make you feel at home. Paul, the pianist is great. Benny, the owner, treats you like family.
