Made reservations here before a BSO concert as we have done in the past. Tonight may have been our Swan Song at Sammy's. Arrived at our reservation time. Proceeded to wait 15 minutes before we were seated. One person was working the front and there were a dozen people waiting behind us. The host seemed overwhelmed and not sure how... More

I fell in love with the old Baltimore charm of the dining room, pretty walls and wood floors, and the food was excellent as well. Everyone was happy with their food, from the crunchy crusted bread, excellent wine, salads and pasta dishes. I had the Sally salad (without shrimp, no problem to request that) and the appetizer eggplant "lasagne" and... More

I had the most delicious lunch here. I had the gnocchi in a bolognese sauce. My daughter had a duck dish. We were given yummy crusty bread and excellent service. Our martinis were excellent too. Sammy's is close to Penn Station. I found it moderately price.

Their menu says "pre-theater menu." That made ME think that they were used to serving "pre=theater " dinners. The waitress and manager seemed surprised that everyone had to leave at the same time even though they are a mere two blocks from the symphony. We were there 1 hour and 20 minutes before we got any food and, when we... More

Attended a bridal dinner here, and really enjoyed it. While of course it was a fixed dinner, the food was fantastic. The restaurant's setting and ambiance was pure Italian, as was the food. As my native Italian friends tell me, it's hard to find a poor meal in Italy and I've learned to believe that. While not in Italy, Sammy's... More

Came here before the symphony. It was very crowded and the service was off. Food took a long time to arrive and was cold when it came. We sent it back but it was cold again. Had to eat it as we had to make the show. The food tasted fine but would not return.

This is Sammys Cathedral City Cal. The site doesn't allow me to review. It skips to the ineffective and faulty app. This place I gave a great review in March. The place on the second visit a huge disappointment. Waiter sells on this 14.00 tomato appetizer prepared at the table. They bring a cart to the table. They come take... More

Can only review Sammy Trattoria on a concert night. We were going to an 8 o'clock concert. We got to Sammy's at 6 pm. First they couldn't find our reservation. I made one online and also called to confirm. They did seat us. It took a long time for a waiter to help us. Then we ordered drinks and dinner... More

We came here to celebrate my first birthday as a married couple. I was so excited to try the food and skipped lunch to make sure I have room to enjoy. It was such a big disappointment. The bread was fine but the ends were so hard. So hard that I thought my cavity fillings were falling out. The main... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a local Italian restaurant and we visited Sammy's Trattoria for the first time. We had a reservation and were seated immediately and everyone who worked there was super nice and friendly. For an appetizer, we ordered the shrimp scampi to share. It was AMAZING. One shrimp came on each piece of bread with... More
