My wife and I had heard many nice comments about Sammy's. We decided to see for ourselves whether or not this restaurant was really as nice as we had heard. Well, it was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is rather small and it was quite busy the night we visited. We had to wait approximately 10 minutes to be seated. This is not the place for an intimate evening with the one you love. It is busy and somewhat noisy. The food was out of this world. I tried the Lasagna and my wife tried the spaghetti. We were both very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious! Our server was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was truly a fun place to go and feast on excellent italian food. We will definitely return.

The Italian wedding soup was flavorful (but thin, mostly broth and not much in the way of meatballs or anything), Meatball appetizer was good! Spaghetti & meatballs -- a generous serving but on the bland side. Could use some Italian spices (such as Oregano, rosemary, and parsley, in my opinion). Best item in our lunch bunch was the pizza. Veggie pizza - I would ask them to "hold the onions" in the future. Nice 4-slice size pizza.

The only place we go for spaghetti. Cant beat the angel hair pasta with meat sauce. The portions were huge. In our opinion better sauce than the local chain restaurant. Its small restaurant , good food , huge portions. Not fancy but good food , good service and low ,low prices for what you get. We had to take half our pasta order home.

Looking for some great Italian food and a great pizza on Ocala's Southwest side, don't go any further that Sammy's. What a great New York style pizza, we were worried about the crust being to thick - It was not, not to thick nor thin just right. Sauce and toppings were excellent. The other Italians dishes that were coming out to other patrons looked yummy and appeared to be a hit with the regulars.
Dining room is spacious, you don't feel cramped in. this is worth the short drive off of I-75, Southwest on SR 200. Too bad, it's closed on Sundays.
