3 courses for £5 what more could you want. Excellent value. Attentive service, really authentic Italian food. Lunch here put other much more expensive places to shame.

We had the lunch special of potato skins pizza and ice cream for £4.95. It was very good and with two soft drinks a meal for two was £13.50. Great service and we ate everything they served. The place was packed all lunchtime, so they must be doing things right.

We go to Sambucca's in Durham and Peterlee all the time, the service and food are exceptional and the staff are very friendly indeed. Prices are very reasonable and if you go before 5:30 there's the special 3 course for £6.99....wow, what value for money...keep it up Sambucca!!

We visited here on Thursday 21st July after walking past a couple of days earlier, the place smelt wonderful, the menu and specials looked good so we decided to come back. The staff were very plesent, however they did seem to hover around but that was so the food was fresh and hot. The food itself was fantastic, couldn't even... More
