Great food. Good service. Loose the piano player singer !!!
Decent value.

Just don’t have the piano player singer and less you put it right by the bar or the kitchen.

The guy can’t really sing, I might only be popular with the +80 crowd

Our table was within 10 feet and we had to shout over him.
Maybe it would be OK if you’d drunk a lot of alcohol, And couldn’t really tell the difference between him and a flat Frank Sinatra

It's the first time we've been to Sambucca since covid started and we're happy they made it through the pandemic. I had the pork chop special which was amazing and my girl got the lobster ravioli with the champagne sauce and it was literally the tastiest dish I've had anywhere! Make sure to save room for the limoncello mascarpone cake!

Saumbuca Grille is fantastic. The service, atmosphere and amazing food make it a very special dining experience. I’m glad to see they have survived the pandemic but not really surprised as they have a loyal customer base which they well deserve. Thank you for such a wonderful, highest quality dining experience!

We always have a great meal and service. Have recommended Sambuca to numerous couples and no one, I mean no one comes back without an above average comment. I lived in Washington, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Sambuca definitely is world class and can compare with any one anywhere.

As we got seated for our reservation the owner or whoever he was came over to us and said you know you only have an hour and a half to sit at this table because of covid so needlessly to say we took our time relaxed had a glass of wine for the next 15 minutes him and the bartender had come to our table two or three times asking us what we like for dinner we said we're not ready yet they kept on pacing back and forth asking us two or three times every 4 minutes you have to order cuz we need the seat for someone else I will never go back there for that problem they're rude and I would never go back and I have been there many times forcing us to leave yet no one else in the back room was forced out although we sat in the bar area very very rude would not recommend and the food wasn't that great

My wife and I went to Sambuca Grille for a Valentine’s Day dinner and it was phenomenal! We will definitely be back again! We started with Caesar salads and had the Penne which was amazing. We ended with cheesecake and a cannoli. Recommend to anyone wanting great Italian food!

I loved this place so much I wished I lived in the area instead of just visiting on a short vacation. Everything from the lovely pianist to the waiter was absolutely warm, welcoming, and perfect. You can tell that they care about their work, because they do it so well. My date and I had a great dinner, and the food was amazing. If you go, do try the mushroom ravioli - it was heavenly!
