Really upsetting experience; we didn't even make it to the food. I'm a black person and my partner is white. We spent all of our time being stared at by old white people that seemed confused and disturbed to be sharing a restaurant with us. I was the only person of color in this place that didn't work there--including workers... More

If you need a channge from the Little Italy restaurants in Baltimore, take a short Uber ride to this Mt. Vernon gem and enjoy a tasty beer at Brewer's Art nearby either before or after. From the crab bruschetta to any of the entrees to a fabulous cannoli, the food at Sammy's is worth the trip. The service can be... More

On a quick trip to Baltimore, before heading to DC, my family was looking for a good meal and Sammy's hit the mark. We started with the bruschetta and were competing for who got the last piece because it was so tasty. My husband enjoyed the lasagne and my daughter and I split the fettuccine Alfredo. The serving was more... More

This is an amazing place for friends & family to dine. Very open atmosphere including a great view of the kitchen. Everyone cares about you from the hostess, to the bartender to the wait staff. Food is so fresh, served in large quantities with amazing flavors. The restaurant is loud and fun - but is makes the evening wonderful!

Tried to eat at Sammy's before a BSO concert. Had a reservation for 6 pm. Arrived on time and there was a long line waiting to be seated. Got seated at 6:15 and placed our order. At 7:25, still no food and walked out hungry. Had to get to our concert. People seated after us had food. Horrible experience.

We went to Sammy's Trattoria on a Friday night after going to the races at Pimlico. It was a big group, 11 of us. The service was friendly and welcoming, from the valet parking on. Our server was tremendous. Separate checks, no problem. One meal a little late, a complimentary glass of wine. And the food... As good as you... More

Hard to find parking till you realize they Valet for $8. We had a large group reservation. Usually when you have over 10 people in a party they will not split checks. The waiter was outstanding. He found a way to accommodate the group. I think if we would have had a different waiter the experience would not have been... More

Visited Sammy's with my family and had an excellent dinner before a show in the Mt. Vernon neighborhood. The bruscetta appetizer was delightful. Entrees of Fra Diavolo, Bolognese and Veal Involtini were outstanding. Delicious cheesecake desserts rounded out the meal. Also very reasonably priced. Highly recommend!

This is a good place to eat before going to either the BSO or Lyric, but be sure to make a reservation. The food is always excellent and the service is professional. I usually get chicken piccata and my wife likes the linguine with clams. It is best to let your server know that you are on a schedule to... More

Went to Sammy's on a slower Thursday evening. Even though it was not crowded the waitress asked if we had reservations and then acted like she was doing us a favor giving us a table. We asked to order the $40 special (4 courses) and were given a list of reasons why we couldn't or shouldn't. We both wound up... More
