Sergio's Cucina Italiana reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Had better experiences here.
    Kathy
    Dined on 7/27/2013
    Service was very slow on this particular Visit. We asked for more bread when our salads came and it wasn't brought out until our soup and salad was finished. Drinks were never refilled either. We waited about 15 minutes for them to collect the bill. Finally a gentlemen with an iPhone walks up and swipes our card. We thought this was odd and asked him if he worked there as he was a new face we hadn't encountered up to that point. He assured us he was an employee there. Parking was horrendous. It was difficult to get out of the parking spaces when we left as a huge crowd had assembled in the bar. Frankly, it feels like a restaurant for a lot of regulars and we were the outsiders. This isn't the first time we have felt that way here.

  • No credit cards ???
    OpenTableBDFVIP
    Dined on 7/14/2013
    As we walked in there was a sign that said no credit cards --cash only. After we counted the $20 amongst all of us (who carries large amounts of cash anymore?) and figured we could manage the dinner, it put a very negative mood on our choices. I have no idea why they couldn't use a manual charge system or even a smart phone adapter like I've seen used at craft shows but we could not order the wine we wanted or do appetizers.

    This was our first visit to Sergio's. Both my wife and I were very impressed with both the quality and presentation of the food. Everything we had was prepared as it would be in Italy, with high quality, fresh ingredients. Sergio's will be joining our regular rotation of restaurants.

    Love this place. Simple, yet elegant in its own way. Food is very good and economically priced. Service is attentive but not invasive, and they're very willing ot cook "off menu". And Sergio himself never fails to visit and engage the diners. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

    Dined on 6/12/2013
    We enjoyed our dinner there, but both my husband and I got the feeling that this restaurant is on its last legs. They didn't have two entrees that we had chosen, even though we weren't told up front- pork chops? Italian sausage? What we got was tasty, but then despite many choices on the dessert menu, we were told only two things were available: cannoli and ice cream. Again, tasty, but we would have chosen something else. Then at the end, we were told cash only! They did allow us to use our debit after we didn't have enough cash, but all these things should have been told up front. That's why we won't recommend this location.

    Went early (6:00) on a Friday evening and were one of only three occupied tables, so we were a bit worried. By the time we left the place was starting to fill up. And we could see why: the good was outstanding. Prices are very reasonable for generous (but not huge) portions. Definitely going back for a return visit.

    dianeVIP
    Dined on 4/13/2013
    Service can negatively impact a visit. Their were few servers for a packed crowd and the wait for drinks and food excessive! Diners needed to flag down the one server on a continual basis and even walk into the kitchen looking for bread and drinks. This place has good food and enjoyable entertainment, thus the crowds but the owner (not a pleasant guy) needs to step up to the place where his service is concerned. The servers are not at fault they work their tails off, but the owner provides in adequate # of servers and can't accommodate a night with a big crowd and unreliable staff.

    I ordered the Veal Saltimbocca which was well prepared but was disappointed with the Caesar salad I ordered -- It was a lettuce salad with some caesar dressing that might have come out of a bottle. The creme brulee for dessert was tasty. Overall I enjoyed the restaurant and would recommend it.

    The service and food at Sergio's is always good. We typically go to hear the band and dance. They often have a band they we enjoy. The only suggestion and I know it is hard but anything that could expand the availablle dance floor would be great.

    Service was not good. There was practically no one in the restaurant yet the service was so so slow. Some of the staff's english is not very good so the communication was a bit rough. I get that it is an italian restaurant but that is not a good reason to only have italian dressing for the salad. main dish was good tasting.

    Never been disappointed at Sergio's, whether it's for a dinner with friends or a special occasion such as a baptism or anniversary party. They are very accommodating menu-wise. On this visit, my son wanted baked mostaccioli that was not on the menu. The server said, "Sure, we'll make it" and he described exactly what to expect - mostaccioli with ricotta, mozzarella and red sauce - baked. My son said it was even better than his mother's. And, as always, Sergio himself came by the table, engaged us in conversation and thanked us for coming. When making this reserveration on OpenTable, I happened to look at some of the reviews, quite a few of which complained about indifferent service. I'm sorry, but I find that hard to believe.

    Went there with my friend, told the waiter we were not in a hurry and he did a great job of letting us chat and take our time. Table of ladies behind us was inappropriately loud, but the restaurant itself had a fantastic ambiance. The band started playing as the evening progressed (Sat. night) and the music was great! Very fun, outstanding food, clean and overall great experience. Thanks for a wonderful night out with my friend!

    Took my wife to Sergio's for Valentine's Day. I had the Fusilli al Gorgonzola, which was very creamy and warm, perfect for a cold night. Unfortunately I forget what my wife had, but it was also tasty. We had reservations for 7:15. We showed up at 7:05, and waited 22 minutes for our table. Pretty good for Valentine's day. The owner was present and actively talking to patrons, including us. Overall a very good experience. We will be back!

    Sergio's has been a part of our life for over 10 years. THE most authentic Italian food in the area hands down. You must try the pizza as an app. Sergio brought the wood fired oven FROM Italy...along with the pizza chef!! His baked clams are HUGE! not the little half dollar sice you get everywhere, these are big and harty! There is not a bad item on the menu. We go at least once a month and celebrate most of our special occassions there. A MUST GO TO!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/7/2013
    Sergio's menu is authentic Italian, and my Italian husband chooses it, over any/all other restaurants! Sergio will assure your dining experience is extraordinary, greeting you at your table and creating custom dishes of your choice upon request. We love his homemade noodles, marinara sauce, buffalo mozzarella, brick oven pizza, gourmet salads, and espresso gelato. The specials offered each night are note worthy, with his mushroom risotto outstanding, along with his great selection of Italian wines! On any given evening, you'll find Italians speaking Italian, and others enjoying its candle lit bar! Sergio's service in the bar area is exceptional, and Saturday night live music beckons a visit in and of itself! Sergio's is a WINNER RESTAURANT!

We have a lot of Italian Restaurants in our area but their menu is quite unique and has a genuine Italian Feel. Prices I felt were more than reasonable for the presentation, quality and atmosphere. We will frequent this business several times this winter.
