We arrived about 6:45 with no reservation (tried bu couldn't get one), they told us they had a table for 4 but we would have to be done by 8pm for a reserved party. We took it, had a great server, food was fantastic and the Stacey Mitchhart Band was great. When 8pm rolled around there were several open tables and we had already skipped on desert to give up our table like told :(

There were more than several specials. My wife chose the Chilean Sea Bass and was very pleased. I had the Saltimbacca Veal. It was good but now what I expected.
All-in-all, we would gladly go back.

A Top 5 restaurant in Northeast Pennsylvania. Truly in a class by itself. Fabulous food, staff and food. Feels like “Little Italy”

Homade pasta was excellent. Veal dish was very good, except a little thin on the prosuito.
No salad included with entry.
All around good service. Restaurant is fairly limited in seating.

We ate here last year when visiting family and we wanted to enjoy another meal here on a return visit. Small but comfortable and great service and tasty food.

Limited menu on New Year's eve. Not a lot of choices for some people if they are picky eaters. I really enjoyed the salmon with armaretto sauce with side of vegetables. Pear salad was very good. The cheesecake was a delightful surprise. So delicious.

I have gone to Sambuca many times, and it’s usually a good experience. This time, however, it was not. I had braised beef over risotto. The risotto was undercooked, and barely seasoned. I ate the beef, and when the waitress came back I told her about the risotto. Her response was unacceptable. She looked at me and said “well if that’s what you think, I’ll let the chef know.” Immediately after that the next table over from me had the exact same complaint, and she responded with “I’m so sorry! What else can I get you? I don’t want you to go hungry!” I was excited to go to sambuca for New Year’s Eve, but now I seriously doubt I will ever go back.

Have been here before and will go again. We had three different meals and all were great. One had pork masala one had chicken masala and one the tuna special. I would recommend any of these meals. The service is terrific. They are attentive without being obtrusive. It is also nice to be in a restaurant with a piano music. The piano player is very good and is interactive when called for.

We went here for a celebratory dinner after I completed medical treatment. The atmosphere was lovely--intimate seating with a gentleman playing piano and singing in the corner. Specials sounded amazing, and our dinners were brought to us quickly. Wait staff was attentive without hovering, and drinks were lovely. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We needed a good restaurant prior to going to one of the Broadway in Scranton shows. This restaurant had good reviews and was a short walk to the theater. The food choices were great and both of us had specials of the evening. The prices were also very good for what we ordered.
