It is great to see AUTHENTIC Italian food presented in a friendly atmosphere. The service was excellent and classy, offering good explanations and recommendations. The food quality was fantastic. Very flavorful and not too heavy. Definitely not an "American Italian" restaurant.
I will definitely be back!
One of the best restaurants in the area. Specials are always great and they will gladly accommodate any preferences.
Food and service was great
Food is incredible. One of the best meals I've had in the scranton area.
Sambuca Grill takes you back to the style and flair of restaurants in the 80s. Men in bowtie tuxedo's. Live piano. Very unobtrusive service. The lobster ravioli had unshredded lobster claw meat in it (the best part). Just saying, this restaurant has never let me down on a great date experience .
The food at Sambuca has been phenomenal every time I have been there. The wait staff has been friendly and the meals have been awesome. The portions are just enough.
Excellent service, everyone's meals were delicious, and we didn't feel rushed.
An authentic Italian experience. Highly recommend.
Awesome as usual
Great food. Specials were exceptional. Service was very attentive and wait staff very knowledgeable. Enjoyed piano atmosphere. Will return.
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”
If you are looking for a romantic dining site, where you will be treated like a king, go to Sambuca Grill.
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.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We love it here
My wife’s birthday dinner.
Loud crowd noise!
My girlfriend is obsessed with this place. It's amazing.
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.
Always delicious and staff is wonderful! Salmon was tender and so good. Love listening to Paul on the piano. One of our favorite restaurants for sure!
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.
Very enjoyable evening. Food was excellent. Changes were made to menu to suit my preferences. Waite staff is very courteous and knowledgeable.
Just moved to Scranton a few months ago and this has been by far the best meal I've had here. Both of our pasta dishes were out of this world! Will be back!!
Went for our anniversary and as usual the food was excellent and the service was perfect.
We had yet another wonderful dining experience at Sambuca. Our clients and we were delighted with the food, the service and the wine at our holiday celebration dinner.
We will continue to enjoy Sambuca in the future!
Excellent food just wish the salad came with the meal! Kind of pricy but great food! Great service!
Best restaurant in Scranton, again
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.
i loved it ,the atmosphere the piano player and the staff. Cant say enough and the food terrific too!!
Perfect place for a date, to celebrate a special occasion, or just a nice night out with the boys or girls. The food, service, and environment were lovely and enjoyable. Would definitely come here again!
We trusted user comments and are very happy to say they were accurate. This is now our go-to Italian restaurant in the area. The food, the service, and the ambiance are perfect for couples and friends alike. Thank you for giving us all such a pleasant experience at a fair price!
Always a great dining experience at Sambuca. We come back frequently for the terrific food, family atmosphere and outstanding service.
I have dinner at Sambuca Grille several times a year. It is always very good. The service is great, the food is great. It is reasonably priced.
my husband and i including our friend had a wonderful time and the food was excellent and your family staff was more then gracious. We drove over 30 miles but the drive was worth it. Its so nice to see family generations working together. We will be back soon.
Great restaurant, food was delicious. Great atmosphere and service.
Go their fairly often, never disappointed. Only complaint is they are too quick with their food and I am typically there with friends and want to linger.
Wonderful as always
