Very good Italian food! Sampled many appetizers...all fresh and delicious. Meatballs, sausage, scampi and clams...so good and a good wine list. Great experience!

Enjoyed a relaxing meal with my beau at the end of a long day. Great food, service and ambiance. A perfect place to wind down without fuss or pretense.

I have eaten at Sabatino's for years. unfortunately, I am very disappointed at my last visit. I really cannot rate the food because no one ever took my order. After a fifteen minute wait for someone to take our order on night where the restaurant was not all that busy, I decided to leave and spend my money elsewhere. On... More

Love this place. Eat outside as the ambiance is fantastic! Food is 5* and their sausage will compare with anyone's BUT order the Pepper for your entree. It's amazing!

The pizzas we had from here were great!! We had them as a take out. Apparantly there was quite a long queue to get in so it seems it is really popular. The owner of the restaurant was extremely helpful and pleasant to us as we were not locals and our requests were a bit different!

We enjoyed our meals here. The best thing about the meal was the minestrone soup! Just a big bowl of that with the great bread would have been enough. We also enjoyed sharing the Caesar salad and sharing entrees. We had the chicken stuffed with sausage and seasonings. The couple we were with shared the pesto shrimp dish which was... More

Atmosphere was lovely . Service was fair. I was there with my guest for lunch today, The food was badly prepared and sickened me. Living in the area, this had been my favorite restaurant for many years.

Met a friend here for dinner - loved the food!! The olive spread over warm bread is to die for, but save room for the sausage sampler plate, perfect for sharing with a salad. Go and enjoy!!!
