We will go back. The owner was most courteous and engaging.
Everything was delicious. Staff was incredibly nice. Will be back for sure.
It is odd that a restaurant would be cash only these days !
Always a great meal!
Excellent experience! Will be back!
Loved the food
We’ve been here before, and have enjoyed it every time. The food is always 5 star.
One thing I particularly appreciate is how accommodating they are. I’m a vegetarian and they are very willing to change a menu item to make it meatless.
My wife uses a wheelchair. Access from the street and into the dining area is very easy. The staff is happy to move a table to allow her extra space.
Great all around: food and service.
If you do not mind eating outdoors, very good food.
Food was excellent. Not large portions. Service was delightful and efficient.
We had another delicious meal dining outside at Sontuosa! The food never disappoints and the street-side dining ambiance is special. It was warm enough to not need heaters or blankets, though the staff offered both to make sure we were comfortable while dining outside. We will be back!
Owner actually served us. Great conversations, see and delicious
Fabilous and delicious meal!
Service was great, food was delicious however one of the servers, (might have been the denial owner) was extremely loud when speaking to the customers and it wasn’t pleasant.
Great local find!!
Beyond rude service two times in a row now. Wont be going back.
Delicious meal, we love this neighborhood restaurant
Amazing calamari, flat bread pizza and pasta dishes. Owners make sure that everyone is having a great experience.
This place is the best place to eat in Bryn Mawr. Everything that comes out of the kitchen is an incredible culinary adventure. So many amazing meals here.
Food was amazing, service was amazing, definitely will be going back!
It was our first time here, and certainly will not be our last! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and the staff is so kind. Overall great experience and I can't wait to go back.
Food and service were excellent.
Sontuosa is always great, food is amazing and the outdoor seating arrangement is perfect. Heaters for almost every table. Hoping for many more warmish evenings!
I really loved this place! The FOOD was beyond outstanding. They really impressed me with the Octopus it was the best. Everything was full of bursts of flavor. Each bite I could tastes different notes. This place is CASH Only but so worth the minor inconvenience. BYOB too!
Perfect for a great date.
Had the place to ourselves! Great service! Great food.
Wonderful experience outdoor dining while social distancing. And - simply incredible food! We will be getting take-out once per week to help support this local business!
Great dinner, staff and outdoor dining experience!
A wonderful dinner dining outside. Love the outdoor seat up, with heat warmers, lights and social distancing conf. Service was excellent and food delicious. Loved the byob. Hope they bring back outdoor live acoustic music (saw it on the website?). We live around the corner and loved this restaurant. We definitely recommend it for a family dinner or a date. We will be back! Thank you for a lovely meal.
Terrific BYOB in Bryan Mawr. Ernesto and his team make the whole experience great.
Food was absolutely delicious. Service was really slow which I didn’t mind all that much since we were out with another couple enjoying wine. However, if we didn’t have twist off wine bottles it would have taken a half hour after we sat down to start drinking them. Bus boy kept coming to our table and trying to take our plates while we were still eating. Not a big deal since he was a young kid, but pretty annoying.
This was out first time there. Very attentive server, knowledgable and interested and
complementary. The maitre d' brought us each afghans when I expressed feeling a little chilly. Food was excellent, from start to finish.
We had a wonderful experience in the spring with outdoor dining at Sontuosa so we were looking forward to going back on a warm fall evening. Our server was attentive and pleasant as usual. We had carrot-ginger soup and caesar salad as starters. Both were very good. One had Paella for entree which he loved; I ordered the Braciole which was so salty I barely ate half. When the serve came by to ask how things were, I told her of the saltiness and she apologized but didn't offer any remedy. Not a different entree, free dessert, or even to take the item off the tab. Very disappointed.
Excellent food and service. Safe, outdoor setting.
Thank you for the time you took to review us!
Absolutely amazing restaurant. We are regulars.The food and service can’t be beat.
Wow, we are so happy to see your review, thank you!
The Bucatini was mediocre. The Pork Chop special was Superb per my, usually, very critical daughter. BYOB draws good crowds. Everyone was quite pleasant.
Excellent carrot soup. The chicken was good but way too salty. I was thirsty all night. The server was friendly but shared a little too much about the hardships of her job. The busboy seemed overwhelmed.
Nice outdoor seating.
I apologize about the salty chicken, I know exactly what happened and it was addressed immediately. I owe you a dinner next time you're in! As far as a "chatty" server, I've addressed that , as well. The busboy was a bit busy that night, for sure!
Food and service always top notch!!
The food was exceptional!
The hostess was very kind and welcoming. The service was good - the food was very fresh- the overall portions were a little smaller than we are used too - the deserts were lovely but the slices of cake and tiramisu were ridiculously small.
We had a great meal, the pizzas are delicious and the chocolate mousse cake was yummy!
Excellent food, wonderful service and a very nice, safe outdoor setting.
