The staff was friendly and attentive. It was my mother’s birthday and they made it a great experience. The food was excellent from appetizer to dessert. Love the atmosphere.
Great meal. Pasta was perfectly cooked! Everything was fresh. We were pleasantly surprised that Scranton had such great quality Italian Restaurant.
Always a pleasure to eat here. Great food and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend it!
Wonderful food, very friendly atmosphere, never disappointed.
Wanted to give our daughter a special dinner form Parents weekend at the U of S. Sambuca was perfect ! Food was amazing. Service was friendly and welcoming. I will return again during our next visit
Delicious food and service is always wonderful! Quaint setting.
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.
Romantic, amazing food, we go every chance we have. Really enjoy Paul playing the piano...
One of most favorite restaurants in the area ! Amazing service and fabulous food !
Sambuca is a great restaurant! Very good food and cocktails! Nice atmosphere and excellent service! Enjoy going there every time!
It was great. Service and food outstanding. Shrimp parmesan was to die for.
Birthday. Terrific time
Benny is great...food is terrific, as usual.
Nice selection of specials. Our food was delicious and the service was friendly and efficient.
Best chicken Marsala I have ever had
There were six of us and everyone had a fabulous meal
Would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely eat there again
Frequent diner. Always great service. Food served fresh and delicious A return visit a MUST.
Great service. Our waiter knew everything about the specials and was able to answer all questions we had. The food was prepared perfectly and all four of us ordered off the specials menu.
We were passing through Scranton and looking for a nice meal after a long day of driving. Good recommendations on Open Table and on the recommendation list at our hotel. All the reviews were spot on. Good cocktails, good wine , great and knowledgeable owner and server and most of all good food. Will definitely return should we find ourselves in Scranton, PA.
My business partner and I were working in the area and thought we would try this place. Benny was working the bar and was an excellent host. Food was great, good taste and temp and the gentleman singing in the back room on the piano just added to the experience. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Very pleased with service and dinners. Absolutely will return.
As always, food was excellent and waitstaff was attentive and friendly.
Love Sambuca! Our favorite in the Scranton area> We've brought 5 couples who had never eaten here and now it is at the top of their list, too!
Average plus. Price and portion size do not match. When a pasta dish is over $15 it should be abundant.
Me and my wife had gone to Sambuca for our anniversary dinner. The service was great from start to finish . We were greeted and seated immediately by the owner , Benny. Not very often you get such personal service like that from the owner! His entire staff was very professional and attentive. Both of our dinners were outstanding. We were even treated to a special anniversary dessert along with the piano player playing happy anniversary! I highly recommend Sambuca Grille! 5 stars!
Delish food, prompt service, and a piano player! What else could you ask for? Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion
A quiet, peaceful place with excellent food and top quality service. I have been going to Sambucca for many years and have never been disappointed.
Great staff from the owner to the bus crew. Everyone was not only totally accomodating but extremely friendly. From the appetizer to dessert and coffee we were totally impressed. Portions are very generous. Food quality is excellent. We will be back!
Food, drinks and service was excellent. The ambiance was also great. I highly recommend this restaurant.
It was a great time with good food, a wonderful atmosphere and good company!! Will def go back!!
The crab bisque was superb, crab was fresh and had the taste of crab that I had as a child after crabbing at the jersey shore. The veal was tender and cooked perfectly. The sea bass was surprisingly thick, the Cajun spices were a wonderful compliment to the mild, moist fish and spinach. The baklava was gooey and flaky, but I wish it was made with honey and had more nuts.
The best food and service in all of scranton! The management and servers all make you feel at home and the piano player keeps the mood light and happy!!
There were 4 of us for dinner. We each had something different. All 4 dinners were very tasty. The waitstaff was pleasant. We didn't feel rushed. It was a very enjoyable dinner.
Food was delicious. Service impeccable
Four of us went out for dinner tonight to celebrate a birthday. We just had a totally enjoyable experience at Sambuca! The restaurant staff were cordial and professional. We never felt rushed. The timing for our water, drinks, appetizers and entrees was just perfect. We were able to relax, enjoy each other’s company and enjoy our delicious food. There are plenty of great selections to choose from on the menu. I ordered the veal, which was perfectly prepared. It was tender with a delicious, delicate flavor. Everything on the menu is freshly prepared, so we all enjoyed our food whether it was veal, pasta, or seafood. Even the salads were fresh and crisp. When the check came, I have to say, it was reasonable. Thank you, Sambuca, for a delicious meal and an enjoyable birthday celebration!
It was a bit surprising… Food is usually fabulous… Tonight was very ordinary
Good food, great service, lovely place. Recommend.
