    Sansone's is always enjoyable to go to. There are always interesting specials to try, and of course the Wiener Schnitzel is always there to fall back on! One of the specials the night we went was Escolar (a very nice pacific white fish). The fish was cooked perfectly. The soups at Sansone's are always top notch. The last time we went the soup was a tomato, artichoke with just a hint of spice. Excellent! And, one of the best things about Sansone's is the reasonably priced wine list. They have very good wines at affordable prices.

    We had a wonderful dinner at Sansone's. It was Octoberfest and they had a special menu including three Germen beers at a special price. In addition they had their full menu. I had a wonderfully tender weiner schnitzel served on a bed of pasta, brown sauce, and vegetables. The service couldn't have been better: friendly, attentive, prompt, and our order completely accurate. This was not our first visit to Sansone's and will certainly not be our last.

    This is a neighborhood gem . Many years of loyal followers, and for good reason. Hand crafted meals by the owner/chef. Are you a liver lover. NO ONE does it better. Oktoberfest is happening now with three course specials including a German pretzel and mustard. Veal dishes are a favorite too. Go and enjoy.

    Took friends for a fun dinner night together. The specials were varied and I chose the walleye--outstanding. The soup that night was gluten-free so I was able to have it. The vegetable rice soup was seasoned beautifully with a slight kick--wonderful for the cooler fall evening. The walleye was tender and spiced well and the sides were also perfect. We ended up sharing the dessert which had to be ice cream with berry sauce--other desserts had flour--the berry sauce was amazing--not too sweet and was enjoyed by both my husband and I. The Riesling bottle of wine was also exceptional. One of my favorite places to eat!

    We went to Sansone's for our anniversary, and as always, it was perfect. Our server, Tony, recommended two of the specials, and he wasn't wrong! Delicious. Robert, the owner, always makes it a point to stop by the table to show his appreciation and make sure everything is to our likin and, Erica, his wife, is always so nice when she greets us. Love this place. From the service to the food, you can't go wrong with Sansone's!

    Unfortunately my liver was stringy and tough. The other two meals, filet and chicken were outstanding. Because of their policy, Sansone's did not charge me for my meal. I definitely will go back often. This is a delightful restaurant.

    Continental dining. The space was a little tight on a Friday night. It seems to attract an older croud. We were the youngest there by a generation. The chef came out and made rounds...a nice touch. The food was good. I had the special rib eye. I usu only eat stake at steakhouses but it was quite good. Wife had lamb slightly under cooked for her liking. Staff was good. I would go again.

    We visited the restaurant on our anniversary and decided to take our 4 year old as the chef/owner had told us on our last visit that kids were welcome. The service and food were wonderful. The waitress took the time to listen to my 4 year old tell her about her birthday party, which was really sweet. It's a true find and we will definitely be back.

    We had concert tickets at Fiddlers and wanted to find something lower cost in the general area. Living up at the north end of town, neither of us were familiar with what was available in the area. This was a pleasant surprise. The food was good, the value was good and so was the service.

    We went here for restaurant week and the reviews online were great so I was expecting something amazing but it was just okay. The location was in a strip mall, the restaurant itself was very small and the server we had seemed overwhelmed by the 4 tables he had. We waited 10 minutes for him to take our order (which by then we were ready to order food too) then we waited at least 15 minutes for our drinks. Our appetizers actually came before our drinks! The food was good - but nothing fabulous. The clientele was mostly senior citizens. Considering the normal menu prices we likely won't go back.

    Dined on 8/27/2014
    Food was good but the "Restaurant Week" deal wasn't. If the idea is to introduce new potential patrons to the restaurant and create a great impression, this experience made us less likely to return. Salad, which is normally included with an entree, should not have been included as one of the 3 courses for $30pp. The one lamb chop per plate order, regularly $21 with a salad, meant the "deal" was an appetizer for $9. This hardly seems a way to fill the restaurant for this special week and get folks to return. Maybe that's why many seemed to just order off the regular menu and forego participating in this city-wide special event.

    We go to Sansone's several times each year and find their regular menu very good and with salad or soup and side dishes included. We decided to try the Restaurant Week selections. We were so disappointed-the appetizers were good but quite small and the entrees were small, especially when compared to their regular offerings(our companions wisely choose from the regular menu). My husband ordered the lamb chops except there was only one very small chop which was overcooked-he ordered rare. We will return to Sansone's but will only order from the regular menu. Other restaurants(ex.- Shanahan's) have a great deal.

Still we got served quickly and were never wanting for attention. A very friendly but eloquent place. Chef/owner comes around to check with the patrons occasionally...nice personal touch.
