I have passed by Sansone's a number of times and never really thought much about it. It is located in a strip mall and nothing about its appearance attracted me. Recently my companion and I decided to give it aa try. We were surprised by what we found. The food was very good, our waitress we good, and food choices... More

Been going to Sansone's Bistro for many years, food is great but the wait staff is set in their ways and so abrasive! We feel like we are being punished for ordering our food and barked at when we don't eat our appetizer fast enough. Won't be going back ever again!

I do apologize for your service experience. We are in the process of training new staff members, and friendliness is our top priority. We never want our customers to feel rushed. We do communicate with our kitchen when we deliver appetizers or salads so they can begin to prepare the entrees that are made by scratch. Nothing is just sitting... More

Recent dinner at Sansones. I have been to this place occasionally, and wanted to try something out of my ordinary menu of restaurants. It is kind of an Italian place bur more of a European place than anything with a broader menu. As someone said, the strip center it is in is very dated and old school as is this... More

Thank you for your comments. You are correct, we are in the process of training new service staff. I am sure that once our servers are fully trained you will not experience those issues. We do serve our salads on chilled plates, so if the trainee grabbed a warm one I apologize. Thank you again. Erica Sansone More

My wife and I enjoyed a dinner that reminded us of our European visits and the Schnitzel definitely was a visit to Vienna. Appetizer was Artichoke French: 4 Artichoke hearts breaded and deep fried with a light cream sauce. Entrees come in 2 sized portion depending on your appetite needs. When ordering our entrees, the wait staff suggested we order... More

This is a small, but tastefully decorated restaurant. There were plenty of people to serve. I enjoyed the veal with pears and cranberries. My friend enjoyed the Weiner Schnitzel. Bread was served and various vegetables accompanies the main meal.

We went to celebrate our anniversary. The shopping center where Sansone's resides is a little dated, but definitely don't let that stop you! The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Service was good. Our waiter was in training but still did a good job and we appreciated his more quiet but warm and friendly demeanor. It was a pleasant surprise... More

The restaurant only seats 49 so reservations are advised. Always 2 sizes of servings of menu items and several specials every day. Great service and a no rush atmosphere to accompany a superb wine list. Its an Italian home feeling. When you think you have had a great meal.............then the dessert menu cannot be ignored.

Based on the reviews my daughter and I booked a table for two. The good parts were an amazing clean out the Cellar wine offering. A plus, Artichokes French as an appetizer.
