Good food and good service
Excellent food and a great atmosphere! I highly recommend the Honey Nut Cheerio martini!
Always a great meal and outstanding service. Love this place.
Food is awesome. Service is pleasant. Nice place to go for a date.
It was our first time there. We had an awesome meal, and great service in a delightful cozy atmosphere! We will be back again.
Second time we were there. The food was great but the service wasn’t. Arrived there at 5:30 and our order was taken until after 6:00. The whole dining experience took almost two hours.
Love Sambuca food, service, piano music, cocktails and we are always satisfied with everything.
The service is beyond exceptional and the food is second to none. Would highly recommend !!!
Great place for any special occasion. Amazing food, amazing service
Best place with the best staff, food and ambience!
Came here for an anniversary dinner with my husband. This was our first time dining at Sambuca and we will definitely be back! The food, drinks, ambiance, and value were all fantastic but the service was truly outstanding. The timing of our meals was PERFECT - with cocktails, appetizers, salads, dinner, and dessert all coming out at the ideal pace. As a result, we could enjoy each dish in turn and settle in comfortably to the next when it arrived. As someone who has worked in a fair share of restaurants, I know how challenging that can be. These guys are pros - they operate like a well-oiled machine. Plus, they really seem to enjoy what they do, which made the whole experience even better.
The menu is robust, and the food is Italian-inspired. They have a nice amount of off-menu specials as well, so be sure to check those out!
I haven't had a dining experience like this in some time. It was very refreshing to be truly waited on from the moment we stepped inside until we left. The drinks we perfect and the food exceptional.
Excellent all around! My favorite restaurant in Scranton by far!
We absolutely love dining here. The service is always fantastic and the food is delicious. We never had anything we did not enjoy. The piano player on the weekend is an added plus. Do yourself a favor and have dinner here, you will not be disappointed.
This is my 3rd time eating here and have never had a bad meal . The service was great as well . I had the veal chop this visit and it was delicious . We will be back !
Food was outstanding - they definitely have a skilled chef!
Drinks remained empty a bit longer than I would like and left our water glasses empty. This is an opportunity for improvement for Sambuca.
Other than that opportunity the overall experience was very positive and I will surely return.
Always great food and service. Piano player creates a great, old school vibe.
The food was incredible and the service was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be coming back.
Incredible food and service as always! One of my top favorite restaurants of all time.
Sambuca Grille is one of the best restaurants in Scranton….the food is amazing, the staff are all incredibly attentive, and they make the best martinis around (especially the honey-nut-cheerio martini and the chocolate martini). Danny makes us feel like family every time we are there, and always makes sure we have everything we need. You will not be disappointed…doesn’t get any better in Scranton…ENJOY!!!
Sambuca is the best. Service is great. Atmosphere is great for a date night or dinner with family & friends.
The ambiance is very pleasant and the service was good. The food was okay. I thought it was overpriced. Too much sauce on my pasta dish. I ordered a puttanesca, but there were no capers, just a few chopped olives and no anchovies. The salad was fresh, but kind of blah.
I think it would be a good place for appetizers and a drink. Maybe work a bit on some of the pasta and entrees.
Great food, nice atmosphere, friendly helpful servers. One of our favorite restaurants.
Very nice evening, my wife and I brought a friend from Philly and he was very impressed with the food and service. All of our dinners were outstanding. The only thing that I would recommend to the restaurant would be to serve warm bread not the cold bread they serve.
Great place with excellent food. Staff was extremely helpful to assist with disability accommodations. Easily accessible for disabled clients. Portions large. Pleasant evening. Would definitely recommend.
We had wonderfully smooth sherry cream sauce over ravioli and grilled salmon with sundried tomatoes and capers. Crisp string beans, carrots, and potatoes were served with the salmon.
Pistachio pie and fine limoncello cake with meringue-like filling were very enjoyable desserts.
Nice, not-too-dry Riesling wine accompanied our meals.
We look forward to returning!
Outstanding as always but even better than ever. Danny is great. Always sociable friendly handsome with great staff. Met two of his cousins last night. They work hard and fast with perfection. We chose two specials and they were one of thee best ever.
Delicious shrimp bella donna with a wonderful cream cognac sauce.
Pork marsala was tender golden brown, served over fresh greens with balsamic vinaigrette.
Cannoli was freshly filled, so she'll was crisp.
Creme bruleé was flavorful (I love vanilla!) with a delicate, golden top.
We look forward to returning!
Always very pleased
Great service & expanded wine selection. Had the veal chop special - outstanding! Great flavor in a wine & mustard reduction sauce.
Always a fantastic meal!
Great food, great service, superb lemon drops!!
Great food, had the special app and entre both where excellent.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in our area. The staff is very attentive and friendly and the food is delicious!
This is the second time my friend and I have met for a quick reunion in Scranton and eaten dinner at Sambuca Grille! The restaurant is a lovely little place with a beautiful bar up front and a long room at the back, it's quiet enough to have a great conversation while enjoying dinner and drinks. The service is amazing, attentive without being intrusive and willing to make sure you are well tended to. The food is excellent! So delicious that you want to savor every bite. The drinks are all made and also delicious! We had a lovely time the first time which is probably 2 years ago and last night! I'm not a big fan of Scranton, but will go back just to have dinner at Sambuca Grille!
Great meal and dining experience Our meals were excellent and the service was friendly and attentive
Excellent service. Food was great. Will go back
Excellent home made Italian food. We have eaten here often. Service is outstanding! Always enjoy this place. If you haven't tried, you need to.
The food, service and atmosphere were awesome! Sambuca is one of our favorite spots.
