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!

Tried to eat at Sammy's before a BSO concert. Had a reservation for 6 pm. Arrived on time and there was a long line waiting to be seated. Got seated at 6:15 and placed our order. At 7:25, still no food and walked out hungry. Had to get to our concert. People seated after us had food. Horrible experience.

We went to Sammy's Trattoria on a Friday night after going to the races at Pimlico. It was a big group, 11 of us. The service was friendly and welcoming, from the valet parking on. Our server was tremendous. Separate checks, no problem. One meal a little late, a complimentary glass of wine. And the food... As good as you... More

Hard to find parking till you realize they Valet for $8. We had a large group reservation. Usually when you have over 10 people in a party they will not split checks. The waiter was outstanding. He found a way to accommodate the group. I think if we would have had a different waiter the experience would not have been... More
