While this restaurant is exceptionally small in size, it is large in every other way. The staff is welcoming and friendly and the food is exceptional! The menu is diverse and the food is delicious.....I look forward to my next visit :-)

We gathered for a birthday celebration, reserving a table earlier in the evening before the room filled with diners. Reminiscent of old world European style, adorned with religious paintings and statues, the restaurant was festively decorated to reflect the season. We were welcomed at the door and the wine we brought was immediately uncorked for us. Our waiter brought over... More

You would definitely drive right by this place not knowing what delicious creations are inside. It is small and tight. Mainly couples and groups of couples. I've never seen kids there--take them somewhere else bc this isn't the right place for kids. Weekends you'll need a reservation and still may wait, although not too long. It is worth it. We... More

The food is so unique and delicious. We love going there for special occasions. They never disappoint. It is BYOB. The crab cheesecake is to die for!

It's not the easiest place to find but well worth the search. Sergio's Bistro is not much to look at from the outside. Once inside, the room is nice with an upscale feel. The service is friendly and attentive. The best part is the food. Great apps, specials and desserts. - Get the cannoli.

Making a choice as to what to eat is a challenge since they have such unique specials along with their regular menu items; I especially love their... More
