We went on a Wednesday for their dinner special and jazz. Sat in the back room which was so noisy you could even hear the jazz. We asked if we could be moved and were told unfortunately we couldn't. Food was very good especially the appetizer of brochette. On Monday Tuesday and Wednesday they offer two dinners and a bottle... More

We were going to the restaurant just up the road but this looked full and had a nice ambience. We chose to sit outside and although close to the main road traffic was not an issue. The food was good as was the service. They boxed up our leftover pizza so lunch sorted today as well😋

My Abruzzese family only uses fresh garlic in their cooking and I do not cook with jarred garlic as it is very overpowering. I had the Veal Loretta, and it tasted as though the veal was stewed in mounds of jarred garlic--I could be wrong, but the aftertaste was lingering My wife had pasta and again the garlic overpowered the...

After hearing multiple recommendations and reading positive reviews such a letdown. Made phone reservation with dog for outdoor deck,upon arrival nothing in book and tsk of disapproval from hostess. Young disinterested server who made it clear he disliked sat night rush or maybe missing other social life? Had to ask for butter and no water refills during high seventies temps.... More

This restaurant is very nice and clean. Our appetizer was average (bruschetta) but dinner was very below average. Risotto was not cooked properly at all. They DEEP FRIED a salmon filet (not in description) and a "balsamic glaze" was simply balsamic vinegar poured all over the plate. It's a fairly pricey place and neither of us will return to this...

When we checked into our B & B, they told us that this restaurant had a special tonight (I think Monday and Tuesday nights) so we took their advice and ventured to this place. The restaurant had seating outdoors, friendly staff, the special price was truly a great price, and the food was outstanding. I had the chicken parmesan, which... More

I was looking for a reasonably priced restaurant to cater for a larger family group. Sardella's had mixed reviews but seemed to fit the bill. My experience is that they coped with our party admirably. The orders were taken in a patient way (as one needs to be with large parties), and when delivered all thirteen received our plates in...

Had a Sunday night dinner at Sardella's in late June. It was fairly busy but no wait for a nice outdoor table. The food was very good, but the waitress, while very sweet, needed some training: ---unused place settings were never removed ---bread was not brought until waitress reminded ---empty glasses were not removed.... just piled up ---main course was...
