    I have been to many italian restaurant's in the city. The food preparation is not good plus that fact that they charge so much as compared to other restaurant. they cahrge 18 dollars for 5 pieces of ravioli!!

    Warm and Friendly

    My wife and I have been eating at Sam's place for almost 20 years. The food has been consistently good and the service is the best. We feel at home all the time and now that we live in Florida we always eat at SAMs when we visit NY.

    Decent italian great service

    The owner understands service and has does a great job teaching this to his employees. While the food could be a bit better, the atmosphere and service put it over the line for me. I am a repeat customer who knows what to order and what not to. Thanks for a nice experience and for continuing a tradition of small italian restaurants away from the touristy marketing.

    This is a joke right?

    I can't believe all the positive reviews this place has received. Probably the worst meal I've had in NYC in 10 years. Reminded me of cafeteria food. We agreed we've had better food on airplanes. Am I missing something? Antipasto was inedible, tortellini could have been a frozen stouffers entree, veal was tough and tasted funny. Run

    Good Food & Service but can be NOISY

    Because Sam's is small (and cozy), it takes only one loud person or table to affect everyone. The food and service are excellent but the last three times I have been there, loud people at nearby tables made the experience unpleasant. Recently. a lone diner talking very loud on a cellphone was impossible to ignore and we couldn't wait to leave. A few restaurants have initiated a no cellphone policy which makes the dining experience pleasant for those of us who wish to enjoy good food AND the company of our friends. I hope Sam's will consider doing this. Everyone thought the ban on smoking would ruin business. It didn't and neither will a polite ban on cellphones.

    Beautiful surprise

    We were standing at the door reading the menu when a couple told us "we're local and the food is great." We followed them in, they were right, we felt the need to buy their dinner. We do Italian regularly and this was as good as it gets.

    Another Great Experience

    Visited Sam's Place with my wife last month and had a most enjoyable meal - exquisitely prepared in the classic Italian style. Although that was our first visit, we were trated by the host and waiters like old friends. The food (the evening's special veal dish for me and the linguini with clams for my wife) was simple but elegant and the accompanying bread and wine were both superb. We went back to Sam's Place this past weekend and we were welcomed back with open arms and hearty handshakes -- they did remember us -- and the food was again excellent (this time lemon sole). The host came over to our table a number of times and was genuinely interested in our dining experience. Will return again (and again). Highly recommended.
