Skirt steak, Mediterranean sampler were very good. Kale salad had a little to much vinegar. Salted Carmel Pudding was great. Enjoyed our evening.

We came across Sammy’s while out walking. The cheese bread was amazing. My husband had the Spicy chicken angel hair and he loved it. The pizza was also amazing. Nice quiet atmosphere the night we were there.

We went to Sammy's with our four grandchildren and all of us enjoyed our pizza. The kids' menu included other items but our grandkids chose their individual pizzas. They weren't disappointed and neither were we. Our pizza had a crispy thin crust and generous toppings....More
