We went to Semento's again last night for sandwiches this time. The place was packed but the service and quality was not lacking. Recommend again!

Ok guys, the hot wings are PHENOMENAL. Crunchy, spicy, really great. They had Bell's Hopslam available, so they know their beer. Took me 6 years of living here, my fiance 8, to finally visit this place and we immediately regret that. A gem, a complete...More

Let me begin by saying this place has really good food. Unfortunately if you're like me and have sensitivity issues with cigarette smoke it can be a problem. They do have a non-smoking section but it is small, REALLY SMALL. This place is a bar...More

Semento's Napoli Cafe is a local family owned business since 1939. We have a full menu with huge portions. From Sandwiches, bar appetizers, and dinners to seafood. We also have large selection of beer and liquor choices. Our seating capacity is quite large and we can handle large groups for well. ( Advance notice is always helpful for groups over 10). We have huge deck for a outside seating. Late this June we will be opening our new outdoor Beer Garden, Villa Court. We will have Bocce Ball and shuffleboard courts, Bags and horseshoes, and an outdoor seating area with a bar. We offer a shuffle board table, dart boards, Mega touch machine and more. We also have a Non smoking dining room with a separate entrance on the East side of the building, with a handicap ramp. Since we DO allow smoking in the bar room no minors are allowed in any section of the building. We cater to all walks of life! Great for dinner, and also for late night fun! We have a full wait staff to make sure you have a relaxing evening. "Why don't you come to our house for dinner!"
