My first experience at Sandra D's was enjoyable. I met two others for a business lunch, and it was perfect. Our service was excellent, the food was excellent, the atmosphere was great, but it was a little chilly at our table. One person had a salad with chicken, which she commented little on; another person had the sausage and peppers,... More

This is a small locally owned Italian resturant in Auburn. All the food is created and prepared by the Chef/owner. It is not uncommon for him to come to your table and serve the food. Sandra, Bently's wife is a very nice person and will help you find your favorite selection. Always ask if they are serving Seafood Lasgna

@carls5daddy99 I don't know what you are talking about... my family eats at Sandra D's once a week and the service is always empecable, and Sandy the owner is always friendly, polite, and makes each and every customer feel like family... She definitely does not smell like BO... I have tried just about everything on the menu and nothing has... More

There was nothing objectionable about the food nor the service. It was a nice relaxed lunch and a good value. The portion sizes were just right.

I love their salad's for lunch. I almost boycotted this restaurant. My husband and I went there for dinner. We were seated and totally ignored for 15 minutes. Everyone walked by us as if we didn't exist. We got up and left, ate somewhere else.

One chef cooks for all in this quaint, classic restaurant. Excellent food and service. Small seating area, make reservations.

Small, so reservations a must. I left a V/M and they call back to work with us on the time. A gem in small town Indiana. Husband and wife team that are very creative. Don't miss this place.

Met with family members. Very nice cuisine, friendly staff and good prices. The menu is primarily Italian. It's a small venue but charming.

This is a small, quaint restaurant (be sure and make reservations). The atmosphere is quiet--a pleasant change from most restaurants. You can actually talk in a normal tone of voice and not have to strain to hear the conversation. The food is excellent. Everything is made to order. We ate with two other friends and everything was delicious. They have... More
