Went to sardinas because it was recommended very highly by a friend- it did not disappoint. We had two large cheese pizzas (takeout) and they definitely beat your average chain pizza restaurant. If you're tired of ordering low quality pizza like Dominos or Papa Johns this is your place to go.

The people are friendly, the food is great. They give you large portions, so you will not go away hungry, and in fact most likely have to take home a doggy bag. The food is superb. Best Italian food around.

We have dined at some very good italian restaurants through the years, and Sardina's is our favorite. It's a family store, casual, with a nice dining area and very cozy bar area. The service has always been very good and friendly. For the quality and quantity of food you get, this is a great value. I do prefer the pasta... More

The food is really good, because the owner is in the kitchen cooking, The meatball sub was tasty and the Naked Chicken Strips were yummy. There are lots of TVs and it's a fun atmosphere. My only negative was our surly waitress. But, since we didn't see her much, and we were busy talking and not in a hurry, it... More

We love this restaurant - good, basic Italian food. Prices are reasonable, service is excellent. Food is always well prepared. We've been going here for years and years. Lovely atmosphere, good happy prices. Best pizza we've ever had. The meats and cheese they use on the pizza are the best. Getting a craving for more just writing this review.

An old style Italian, family owned and operated restaurant trying hard to please it's customers with delicious food in large portions. Only problem is very difficult to find parking close to the restaurant.

The food is very good, and the portions are huge. We can only eat half and take the other half home for tomorrow.

The place is OK, the tables are not very comfortable, uneven and mismatched. The food was OK, the waitress was a hot mess. She got our order wrong, and left us sitting for serval long stretches. At one point she actually sat a large group at a four top next to us, telling them the occupied table next to them... More

Family owned for generations. Always great, no inconsistencies. Happy Hour food and prices are incredible. TVs, good drinks with a good pour, friendly staff, lots of nice locals. Not a place to get rowdy, don't ruin the cool neighborhood vibe and become a regular instead!
