Dinner was excellent and the service was attentive. We were greeted by the owner, who was charming, and our wait staff were nice, knowledgeable and prompt. We split the special appetizer, fried artichoke hearts, my husband had the chicken Arrabbiata and I had the Shrimp Bella Donna. Delicious! Could have wished for a little nicer ambiance, but overall a really terrific meal.
Excellent food. Great service
Always an amazing experience and the food is unbeatable. Hands-down our favorite restaurant in the area.
Food and service here is above excellent! Even during this difficult time, we had an enjoyable and memorable evening.
Overall great experience! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was also very relaxing and enjoyable. Will definitely be going again.
Great menu to pick from if the specials are not to your liking.
Always warmly greeted and service is great without being too intrusive.
Delicious as always!
Always my favorite place in Scranton!
Still no candles, but the pianist was excellent. I had the special veal chop and it was very good with excellently colorful carrots and beans. The Ceasar salad was also very well done, not too much, and offered anchovies.
Super friendly and nice piano player... food excellent
We have been here several times and travel an hour to dine here. Wonderful owners, staff, service and food. A must-do.
Great place , delicious. Enjoyed the Rigatoni #7 .
This place is always a treat. Possibly the best spot in Scranton for an intimate date night. The piano is a nice touch but the player is not always there. The food is amazing and the prices reflect that but it is worth it from time to time. All of the staff is very attentive, knowledgeable, and eager to help. A great spot to celebrate a special occasion or if you just want to make a normal night out really nice. 👍👍
Attentive and friendly staff, varied menu, great specials, fair prices and great food every time.
We had a great time and a great meal, what else could you ask for? We were seated by the piano and it was loud. So it was a challenge to have conversation at dinner, we had to yell at each other across the table.
Delicious Italian cuisine. Romantic atmosphere. Wonderful staff. Very friendly.
Birthday meal. Excellent time
We had a wonderful experience! The staff was superb! And the food was delicious! We can’t wait for our next visit!
Great job Benny Danny and staff.
Highly recommended. Sambuca is a great restaurant and great service.
Wonderful spot in downtown Scranton with great ambiance The food was outstanding served hot and plated beautifully The service was nothing but excellent Really a fabulous evening from appetizers to dessert
Always delicious and a pleasant experience! We love dining here!!
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.
Outstanding as always! By far my favorite restaurant and in my opinion the best food in this area hands-down.
Our first time here & it was for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary dinner. It was fantastic! The drinks, food, service and table all 100%. Can't wait to come back!
New Year’s Eve very busy set menu food Luke warm service outstanding
Great food and cozy little bar. Piano music was a nice touch. Service was very attentive without being overbearing.
Always great food. Wonderful staff. One of my favorite restaurants on the east coast!
Great dinner specials. Enjoyed everything.
Always get a special! My wife and I love this place before going to a show at the Scranton Cultural Center.
Nice feel to the place very good food service was outstanding
We loved our experience at Sambuca! The food was fantastic and the service was perfect!
Thanks so much!
As always, a wonderful experience!
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.
Our guests loved it. So, therefore, we were very pleased.
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.
The whole experience was great the food A1 the waiters on point. Nice quint small restaurant. Perfect
