Unfortunately they did not
Unfortunately they did not have the wine that we wanted. We were told they are changing some of the details for selling wine. The substitute was good so that was what mattered in the end.

great food,easy access to meyerhoff
Food was great, extensive menu selections, service very attentive. Great atmosphere, especially with our seat upstairs overlooking the main floor, although floor plan was a little tight. It does get very loud though! Server was very attuned to the fact that we had a 930 show and was efficient. As we were leaving we noticed they had an outdoor dining area and we would most definitely go back in the summertime for that!

Within easy asking distance from the Amtrak station, we have been coming here for an early dinner for years. The food and service is simply great as is the wine list. This is a great find and I can only say great things about the xperience.

Wonderful pre-event dinner
We have been to Sammy's now several times prior to events at the Meyerhoff and the staff works very diligently to make sure you get a quality meal and are out the door on time for your event. Sally's salad and eggplant appetizer is our favorite but the house salad rivals another local favorite, the Chip salad. Val is the best waitress! She is friendly, always has the authentic Italian way of discussing the menu, is quick and attentive. Only downfall was that the meatballs we ordered never made it- will try again next time!

To die for: duck ravioli! I have brought my family many times to this amazing restaurant. Good wine, awesome pastas!

Food great, ambiance great and sound level perfect. You can actually have a nice business meeting here for lunch and not have to worry about others hearing your conversation. Portions big and they even have a vegetarian lasagna that is outstanding. The desserts were a little pricey though -$10 for a piece of cheesecake -REALLY???

Great atmosphere, snooty staff
I've been to several wine restaurants (although this is an italian restaurant with a wine list), and yes, most wine drinkers are not sommeliers nor do they claim to be but the wait staff repeatedly corrected my pronunciation loudly and in a condescending tone when I attempted to order my glass of wine. We also received the wrong glass for another order. We ordered the syrah blend and she brought out a cab sauv, assuming I didn't know what I was ordering. The waitress seemed a little frazzled and that made us uncomfortable with her handling our orders. However, the food was good and the atmosphere was amazing. I really enjoy the atmosphere but the staff leaves a little much to be desired.

Another wonderful meal
We've been to Sammy's several times, and it never fails to delight my wife and I. We usually reserve it for special occasions, but if we lived closer I'd make it a more regular event. The food was great and the service was attentive without being obtrusive.
We will definitely be making several more return trips to Sammy's.

We usually eat here after
We usually eat here after BSO at Meyherhoff. It is an easy walk. Food is always good...tho service sometimes is spotty. On this past visit however, Renee gave us excellent service and the food was delicious.

The food was excellent, but
The food was excellent, but the service was very, very slow. It was a good 10 minutes before anyone came up to the table after being seated and then another 10 minute wait after ordering a glass of wine. Given what we thought was two very necessary hours before a show, still required us to just about run to the theater.

We've been going to Sammy's now for several years on the recommendation of a friend. So far, we've not been disappointed. The serving staff are attentive without intruding on your privacy. Because of our experience here over the years, we plan on having Sammy's handle the rehearsal dinner for our son's upcoming wedding.

My husband took me to Sammy's on Saturday. We have been there several times before and we have always enjoyed our meal. Saturday, though, was amazing!
Our appetizer was a wonderful Carpaccio...my dinner was the Veal Milanese alla Buxbaum...probably the best veal I have ever had!! The veal was topped with mixed greens and grape tomatoes...my side was penne with pesto!!! I haven't stopped raving about the meal! My husband had the lasagna with meat sauce which he raved about...he said the meat sauce was perfect...
Dessert was Tiramisu....and a Sambuca!!
This was such a great experience I had to thank the chef...who is also the owner!!
Can't wait to go back!!

A great business lunch. The salmon was perfectly prepared. Veggie sides (spinach and broccoli) were fresh and well prepared. Good bread. Very good service.

Nice Neighbor Restaurant
Sammy's reminds me of the Baltimore neighbor restaurants of the past that served mostly locals. The servers recognize you and remember your likes and dislikes. I can't speak for others, but our food has always been very good. Highly recommend Sammy's.

one of our favorites
We love the restaurant, food is always good and our service is the best. She knows exactly what we like and served us our drinks quickly without question.
We love the staff n Sammy is a gem.

Good time at Sammy's
Celebrated my mother's 75th birthday at Sammy's and they did a good job. Made great suggestions on the menu and provided an amazing chocolate birthday. Great job and good time!

Couldn't Be Better!
Took my husband here for his birthday and couldn't have had a better experience! We walked in about 30 minutes prior to our reservation, expecting to wait, but we were seated right away at a table. Ordered a perfect bottle of wine, at a reasonable price. Ordered the crab toast app, which was wonderful! We also both got the same entrée, of which our sever was able to answer my husband's multiple questions about the noodles (he's a picky, I mean sophisticated, eater!). Cappuccinos and tiramisu for dessert. We were both unbelievably stuffed! The check at the end of the night wasn't bad at all either! Had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back soon!

We go to Sammy's a lot before
We go to Sammy's a lot before BSO concerts. The service can be a bit slow because of so many people coming in and then having to leave for the show. The servers are very friendly and work hard to make the evening pleasant.

Nice setting, good italian food, friendly staff. Great for the pre theatre rainy night. Will definitely come back.

High quality and standard
We returned again after an excellent first experience and were not disappointed. The Carpaccio appertizer was the best I ever had, sliced paper thin and beautifully presented. The homemade duck ravioli were cooked perfectly, though the duck stuffing was a bit dry. My wife loved the Calamari asking for mosty tenticles, which she likes the most and got. The bartender Nick is very professional and atttentive. The Owner/Chef Sam is obviously dedicated to his craft and makes one feel welcomed. There is also weekend valet parking.

Speaker Series Go To
My friend and I (and most of the patrons of the Baltimore Speaker Series) go to Sammy's prior to going to Speaker Series. The staff are attentive to our plans. They seat us, serve us, and allow plenty of time for us to enjoy the meal. We stroll over to our event. Plenty of time for all.
A great week-night out!

food was outstanding and service very good. Only complaint is that the noise leve was very high. Tables upstairs are very close and the accoustics are not great. Would still recommend

Great food and location. Definitely get there early if going to a show to give yourself time to enjoy the meal.

Love This Place!
We often eat at Sammy's. We always go the night after Thanksgiving with our entire family - most of whom live out of town. Everyone loves the food, the service (Renee is our favorite!), and the atmosphere. The veal marsala is especially amazing!!
