Attended a bridal dinner here, and really enjoyed it. While of course it was a fixed dinner, the food was fantastic. The restaurant's setting and ambiance was pure Italian, as was the food. As my native Italian friends tell me, it's hard to find a poor meal in Italy and I've learned to believe that. While not in Italy, Sammy's... More

Came here before the symphony. It was very crowded and the service was off. Food took a long time to arrive and was cold when it came. We sent it back but it was cold again. Had to eat it as we had to make the show. The food tasted fine but would not return.

This is Sammys Cathedral City Cal. The site doesn't allow me to review. It skips to the ineffective and faulty app. This place I gave a great review in March. The place on the second visit a huge disappointment. Waiter sells on this 14.00 tomato appetizer prepared at the table. They bring a cart to the table. They come take... More

Can only review Sammy Trattoria on a concert night. We were going to an 8 o'clock concert. We got to Sammy's at 6 pm. First they couldn't find our reservation. I made one online and also called to confirm. They did seat us. It took a long time for a waiter to help us. Then we ordered drinks and dinner... More

We came here to celebrate my first birthday as a married couple. I was so excited to try the food and skipped lunch to make sure I have room to enjoy. It was such a big disappointment. The bread was fine but the ends were so hard. So hard that I thought my cavity fillings were falling out. The main... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a local Italian restaurant and we visited Sammy's Trattoria for the first time. We had a reservation and were seated immediately and everyone who worked there was super nice and friendly. For an appetizer, we ordered the shrimp scampi to share. It was AMAZING. One shrimp came on each piece of bread with... More

Really upsetting experience; we didn't even make it to the food. I'm a black person and my partner is white. We spent all of our time being stared at by old white people that seemed confused and disturbed to be sharing a restaurant with us. I was the only person of color in this place that didn't work there--including workers... More

If you need a channge from the Little Italy restaurants in Baltimore, take a short Uber ride to this Mt. Vernon gem and enjoy a tasty beer at Brewer's Art nearby either before or after. From the crab bruschetta to any of the entrees to a fabulous cannoli, the food at Sammy's is worth the trip. The service can be... More

On a quick trip to Baltimore, before heading to DC, my family was looking for a good meal and Sammy's hit the mark. We started with the bruschetta and were competing for who got the last piece because it was so tasty. My husband enjoyed the lasagne and my daughter and I split the fettuccine Alfredo. The serving was more... More

This is an amazing place for friends & family to dine. Very open atmosphere including a great view of the kitchen. Everyone cares about you from the hostess, to the bartender to the wait staff. Food is so fresh, served in large quantities with amazing flavors. The restaurant is loud and fun - but is makes the evening wonderful!
