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.

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.

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. 👍👍

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.

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.
