Wonderful quiet little place.... attentive service... fabulous Italian cuisine. Had a coupon from Restaurant.com and wanted to celebrate birthdays with a friend.

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...

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
