What a nice surprise when we asked a friend for a suggestion Saturday night in La Jolla.
"Go to Sammy's" No wait, no fuss, good food at reasonable prices. The manager even approved using a gift certificate we had from several years back. Wait staff was good, efficient and attentive. We especially liked the Balsamic, roasted brussel sprouts--come before 6 and all the share plates are half off--Saturdays and Sundays, too. If you're daring--try the Messy Sundae-good for the entire table.

People teased us that we bought our house because it was a block from Sammy's. Well... it was indeed a consideration! We're here a lot! This is also my absolute go-to place for large groups of out of town guests -- you are guaranteed of finding something for everyone from vegans to carnivores, little kids to travel-browsers. With mediterranean influences from Italy and Spain to Lebanon and asian-inspired salads and appetizers, the menu is beyond eclectic and somehow it all just works. Part of the reason is indeed the owner who is on every one of his restaurants like the proverbial duck on a junebug. No sloppiness allowed. Ever.

So much is good here. Their Caesar dressing is so good I buy a bottle every other week. Their bread is excellent. Love.love, love the goat cheese pizza. Everything is fresh and service is excellent, in spite of the sometimes brutal rushes they get. Everyone stays professional and friendly.

Group of ten stopped on a whim for dinner. The young ladies had us seated quickly without any issues. This is a group with a tendency to be a bit on the finicky side, a few making requests that in my opinion are a bit over the top. However, our male server handled each question and request with outstanding professionalism. I sadly did not get his name. Orders ranged from salads, pizza, pasta and sliders. A few have dined here before, the rest of us are from out of state. We all enjoyed our meals. The place is clean, servers and hostesses seemed happy with smiles all around. I hope to return when back in the area.

We went to Sammy's with our four grandchildren and all of us enjoyed our pizza. The kids' menu included other items but our grandkids chose their individual pizzas. They weren't disappointed and neither were we. Our pizza had a crispy thin crust and generous toppings. Brad, our server, was the best!
We will definitely return if we're back in the area. Prices were very reasonable. Delicious pizza--great service--reasonable prices--a combination that can't be beat!
