A word from Sant Ambroeus - Southampton
Shortly after the original Sant Ambroeus opened its doors in Milan in 1936, a devoted following emerged. This celebrated pasticceria and confetteria became the meeting place for the local intelligentsia, whether beginning their day with Sant Ambroeus's legendary cappuccino and cornetto, savoring panini at lunch, or spending their evening enjoying refined cuisine in the restaurant's elegant dining room.
We translated these old-world sensibilities of Sant Ambroeus to modern times, and imported our rich culinary traditions to New York. Each of our restaurants remains authentic to our Milanese origins, and we continue to serve our culturally inspired delectables in a casual yet elegant environment.

    I've heard a lot positives about Ambroeus. Visiting the Hamptons frequently, Sant Ambroeus will become a definite visit. The food was excellent, great balance in the flavors. I had Seafood Ravioli. The taste of the seafood, pasta, and the tomato sauce was very well balanced. Most restaurant will overpower the taste with the sauce. One could really enjoy and savor all the flavors. It was a real treat. Very nice wine list which really complimented lunch. Service was elegant, friendly, and warm. One really felt like belonging and wanting to experience all of it again. Thank you Sant Ambroeus.

    This restaurant is quintessential European food and flair right in The Hamptons. Nordria (hostess) and Bogdan (server) were lovely, and the whole dining experience was really perfect. Great spot to meet a friend or a significant other and have anything from salad, to seafood, to homemade pasta, to fish, to meat. Everything on the menu is delicious!!! Will always be one of my favorites in The Hamptons - for brunch, lunch or dinner. Grazie!!!

    Cute restaurant, delicious food, somewhat pricey for apps though -$25 for an arugula salad? However, the food was fresh, bright, delicious, and memorable. Service was fine. Great pasta -clearly homemade, with a wonderful Bolognese sauce that was both light and rich at the same time -great mix of flavors and textures. I'm sure I'll be back.

    First of all, they had no record of our reservation. The service was very poor, they told us that the did not have enough help; for a high end restaurant, this is no excuse. The food, although tasty, was served in very small portions almost appetizer size in other restaurants. considering the prices this was embarrasing. We ordered glass of wine, that came 15-20 minuets later, and that was probably because I complained to the owever, Hans.

    The food was outstanding, but in ordinately expensive. $25 for a salad is difficult to understand or justify. Given the price, the service was inadequate. Water glasses were not refilled; we had to ask for bread, etc. While the food was exceptional, we found it a questionable option for fine dining.

    I have dined here twice in the past month and both times were excellent. Pasta to die for and the chef cooking the fish is amazing. Great staff -friendly, kind and courteous. It is an expensive meal, but well worth the price. Sant Ambroeus is a well kept secret and I hope it stays that way, unfortunately, summer is coming and I am certain it will be tough to get a table. If you are a foodie, your going to love this place.

    This place promises elegance and a classy crowd, priced to match, and it delivers. The food is exquisite, the room has a chic feeling and the crowd, at least on a recent Saturday night, looked like a hip NYC gathering. Go during the week for the food and comfortable atmosphere, and on a weekend for the energy as well as an excellent meal.

    sant ambreous is a wonderful place. The restaurant is in the back of a pastry gelato shop but don't be misled, the food .is delicious and the service is great. The pasta in cream sauce with smoked salmon was heavenly. The pastry desserts sublime. It is expensive but worth every penny.

    There is a sum of more than the parts that makes this restaurant special - yes the food is excellent, the service helpful and good. It is mot the most beautiful restaurant and the outdoor dining is wedged between two village buildings, but in addition, one is transported to Italy - probably Milan. Had the Ravioli special, prosecco, and the superb Branzino - so delicately fileted and grilled. The tiramisu and Gianduia desserts are great - the espresso may be the final bit that made me feel I was in Italy.

    I have always heard fantastic reviews regarding Sant Ambroeus but last night i was finally able to experience it myself. What a lovely atmosphere! The service is very professional and authentic, as the man who greeted us was Italian himself. The food was excellent, our pasta perfectly cooked al dente and the salmon dish is also phenomenal. We enjoyed a great bottle of wine that was recommended and overall had a perfect evening. We can't wait to return!

    I have eaten at your restaurant before and had great meals. This last dinner was quite disappointing, perhaps because it was opening day. The clams with pasta were oversalted, the garlic too raw, I was thirsty all night from the excess of salt. The octopus appetizer was good. The desert was very good. My friend's papardelle with ragout was mediocre and his tuna tartare appetizer was just OK. Will try again with the hope that the food will be as good as it used to be in the past. Sorry...

    The restaurant ihas been a family favorite for over 20 years. We especially like the Southampton one. The experience is a tad quieter, and full of the sentiment of memories of our family as our son grew up. So much more than gelato and panini. We have our favorites, and tho the menu is slightly different from the city, they have been kind enough to continue making our favorites when we ask. It's a rare accommodation in the current Hamptons. The gracefulness of the attitude earned our loyalty long ago.

    My party was kept waiting for over an hour past our reservation time. Although the manager comped our meal by 50%, there is no excuse for his staff repeatedly leading us to believe that we would be seated within 5 minutes and then seating other guests who arrived much later than us. If this was Manhattan, I would never go back.

    terrible experience; server pushed dover special without first informing us that is was $60 and it was not even good; also pushed the most expensive glass of wine, again without mentioning price; not surprising that it was possible to get reservation at last minute since they are losing their customers; do not recommend this restaurant and we will never go there again.
