This is not fine dining, but the food is uncomplicated, and tasty (we particularly liked the potato skins). The staff are smiley and helpful. The prices are thoroughly reasonable. The locals seem to appreciate because the place was packed.

We have visited many times to Sambucca. The staff are so friendly and the food also excellent standard.One of the reason we go so much is that they are great at accommodating families with small children. Give it a try you won't regret it.
