We absolutely enjoyed our evening as a family. The wait staff engaged our daughter who’s 2 and made her feel part of the evening. The veal chop and pasta specials were excellent. Our daughter liked the calamari as much as we did. Great place. We look forward to our next visit.

I've eaten at Sambuca many times over the past few years - as always, consistently excellent food and service. This place is a gem. It's great for special occasions and everyday dining. The Rigatoni Bolognese is delicious.

The pastas were excellent. All the dishes were very well prepared and tasty. Presentation was very good..
Nice atmosphere. My veal could have been a little more tender. Standard fair for deserts. Tiramasui and cream brûlée are getting too common place.

The Sambuca Grill is one of downtown Scranton’s gems. The food is fantastic, where you can actually taste each ingredient and savor it.
Some restaurants overpower their dishes. Each dish at Sambuca has a unique taste and the portions are very generous.
Plus we love the piano player, Paul. You know what he plays at 9 o’clock on a Saturday.

Cozy restaurant in downtown Scranton similar to big city establishments. Service was excellent and the food was done to perfection. I had the ahi tuna and my wife had the veal. Both were prepared in a unique way that was interesting to see and delicious to taste. I would definitely go back...

What wonderful red snapper—with clams and squid and a light red brandy sauce. The vegetables with it were perfection. We always enjoy your attentiveness and care for detail.
