We were a group of six for dinner. The staff was great. I ordered a pizza, but the crust was very soggy in the middle. I'm not one for eating pizza with a knife and fork, but it tasted good, and I guess that's what I was after. The others in the group were satisfied with their meals.

One bathroom was either locked or out of order: one one was available. That's not good.

All in all, a decent experience.

We came across Sammy’s while out walking. The cheese bread was amazing. My husband had the Spicy chicken angel hair and he loved it. The pizza was also amazing. Nice quiet atmosphere the night we were there.

Shrimp salad is great, pizza is average. Service is good and slopy sundaes are good (but more toppings than ice cream)

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.
