“Warm and welcoming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We had dinner at Sammy's while staying in LaJolla. We shared their springtime salad and their veggie pizza. Both were reasonably priced ($35 with tip for two entrees and a draft beer) and absolutely delicious. There is sufficient soundproofing in the room so that it is easy to talk during dinner. It's a warm and inviting atmosphere. Great place to dine!

“Awesome pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

I was hesitant to order the pear and arugula pizza but was looking for something different and this was awesome! So glad I gave it a try. For an appetizer we had the crab and shrimp dip with grilled flat bread that was very tasty. Would definitely order again, and the duck tacos? The disappeared in a flash.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Had dinner here on March 18, 2013; server was Tabitha, who did an excellent job. This place is our neighborhood pizza place as it is only 2 blocks from us but it does have a lot more than pizza. Rhonda had the New York pizza and i had the Burrata/Pesto pizza, both the Woodfired versions, as opposed to their thin pizzas. Then woodfired versions were thin but they come out with a soft dough which we like. Rhonda reported her pizza was good and I also had a good pizza. The Burrata refers to a sweet Italian cheese, they put chunks of it on the pizza after the pizza is cooked. The pizza has a nice amount of pesto sauce on it and very little tomato sauce, which is good. We each had a glass of red wine; Rhonda had their Chianti Placido and I had a Pinot Noir from of all places Sicily. Vineyard was Arancio and I went for it since I asked Tabitha which of the 3 Pinot Noirs they offer by glass was the most mellow/easy to drink and she said this one; she was right: it was very mellow, just the type of Pinot Noir I like. We took a few pieces home with us, for lunch tomorrow!

“not too impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

The pizza was nothing to write home about. We had the grilled veggie salad. I did not think it was that good.
