A wonderful meal out with great service and excellent food. We enjoyed our meal outside on the patio. Definitely felt safe with social distancing. We look forward to coming back soon!

We celebrated a family birthday party here on Friday, 10/02. Everything about the experience was outstanding. The service was warm and prompt but never pushy. The food was outstanding. Everyone was smiling, laughing and having a great time, including the staff. It was like having a meal at my Grandmother's house, which is a huge compliment. If you are looking for the best Italian food in town, warm service, and a memorable evening, you should skip the Little Italy tourists and dine here!

The kitchen /bar were out of a fair amount of things that we had asked for. The cocktails were sub par and not made well. Would not recommend.

Sammy's is always a favorite stomping ground in downtown Baltimore with amazing Italian food and a fun atmosphere. Our cannoli was fabulous. I was happy to support them during this crazy COVID time and their outdoor patio area in the back was perfect. They did a good job with adhering to the social distancing policies and sanitization. Thanks Sammy's!

Food was great. It was a Monday and there was only one person doing the bar, waiting, greeter, etc. Was a bit too much for one person. But he tried really hard.

As always, a delicious meal. The restaurant was crowded quickly after a symphony performance, but the staff handled the demand effectively. Sammy's is a neighborhood favorite, and we're always happy when we make it our choice for that day.

I would recommend Sammy’s with the understanding that there is a huge wait even with reservations! And then it took FOREVER to get our food!

With that being said, the food was delicious and we were offered complimentary drinks. Truthfully, I prefer no aggravation with my dinner.

From the moment of being seated at a table that was in a dark and cold area to paying the bill, it was an evening to forget. We chose Sammy's based on positive reviews but the experience was nothing but disappointing. It started with the server asking if we'd been helped. When we said no, his response was, "guess I'll be your server then." Ordered an appetizer and after 40 minutes of which it still hadn't arrived, when he finally returned to our table, he gave no response as to why we were still waiting for the bruschetta. About 10 mins later and it finally arrived. No sooner had it arrived and so did the entrees. That's just unacceptable. I've taken two bites of the appetizer and now the entrees are brought to the table. As for the entrees, the duck ravioli was mediocre, a bit dry. But the gnocchi was another story. Two bites in and it just wasn't edible. Far too much sage & melted butter, but the sage was so overpowering I couldn't eat it. I would've told the server but he didn't show back up until 20 minutes later. At that point, I was just done. Then the check fiasco. I gave him cash & a credit card. We told him the amount to be put on the card & how much of the cash to use. He brings back the same cash & put less on the card than we asked. I wasn't in charge of the tip but frankly it would have been even less than the 5% I believe was left. To sum it up, inedible entree, mediocre entree, good appetizer, terrible service, highly disappointing experience and made even worse because we drove 1 hour just to have dinner in Bmore.
