    We were there for a birthday and late Mother’s Day celebration. A nice handwritten note thanking us for celebrating at Sammy’s was on the table when we arrived. Food was great, service very good. But it was SO loud, even after the dining room had cleared out a bit that it made for an unpleasant experience. Couldn’t hear anything except the person next to me. I would return during day or if I could sit outside but not again on a busy night.

    Server was polite and helpful but service was slow. Order not correct for one of my guests. My pasta was cool to cold. Pizza was a cholesterol nightmare with far too much cheese. Sangria was nice and so was the bread.

    We went here to celebrate a special event in my child’s life. We had a group of 11 ranging in age from 6 months to Senior Citizens. Everyone had a great time. The food was phenomenal. Service was outstanding. I really cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. We will definitely be back!

    The food, as usual, was wonderful. This was our first time going on a weekend night, and it was so loud that we could not have a conversation at our table for 4.

    NOT ENOUGH STAFF !!!!! Waited 40 minutes, then had to have host send a waitress. However, the waitress was great. All staff seemed to pitch in to help serve water, clear tables, bring out meals, etc. They were overwhelmed and it was not particularly crowded

    We had a reservation for 6:30pm. When we arrived, the noise level was awful. The hostess knew it was a special occasion, and tried to seat us at a high top table in the bar. We requested the dining room. We sat with the bread and water, which a young man brought to our table, for 30 minutes and a waitress never approached our table or acknowledged us. So we left the restaurant and went to Vito’s restaurant where we had a fabulous dinner and service.

    The restaurant seemed very chaotic, we had multiple servers so we were never sure who was assisting our table. We ordered an appetizer for the table, which was delivered after we had been served our entries. Food was well-prepared and tasty, but the disorganization and messy appearance of the restaurant was off-putting.

    The atmosphere was frenetic, our waitress scattered. We put on the res that it was a birthday, they weren’t busy right at 6, she forgot birthday , my husband told the hostess and waitress. No candle, nothing was done for her special birthday. The food was good, wrote the restaurant the next day. No response, won’t go back, and telling friends not to go there if it’s a special occasion, Very disappointing. It came Highly recommended by a regular.

    This was our first visit to Sammy's. We were greeted warmly by the host, Steve. We had known Steve from his previous employment and shared some quick remembrances. Our server, Gabby, was attentive and very pleasant. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The prices are moderate. We plan to return. Also, the owner, Sammy, came to our table and greeted us. We felt very welcomed.

    The food and service were quite good. The noise level became too high as the place filled with diners. My hearing is not the best, so that interfered with table discussion.

    Gave it 4 stars because the noise level is out of control there. We sat at a table in the back room this time and was hoping it might be less noisy than the bar area but we could literally not hear each other talking at the same time. We even left with sore throats from having to yell over the noise to be heard. Sammy’s is great but they need to fix this noise issue.

    Decent food, service a bit off Stark ambiance. Why would you put white beans in with mussels? It doesn’t work. The big problem was noise. We were in the dining room and could not talk. They need to close off the bar. We will not go back

    This was my first time at Sammy's Trattoria and it will not be the last. Our service was excellent (our waiter didn't even write anything down for four us and their were no mistakes with our orders). The food was very good, I ordered the beef carpaccio as an appetizer and the pasta carbornara for my entree, both were excellent. For desert, I got the cannoli, which was the only thing that I was not happy with. The restaurant is very loud though, so it's not a nice quiet evening out. I highly reccommend Sammy's though.

    Always enjoyed Sammy’s on Charles street and their home made pasta. Walked into Hunt Valley Sammy’s and the noise was almost painful. It was so loud you couldn’t hear yourself talk. We sat ordered and left as quickly as possible with headaches. Sad to say the pasta was thick and heavy and store bought. Everything else was tasty but the noise will keep us from returning.

    We were seated but did not get menus for a very long time. The service was very slow. We ordered and got food but did not have all the utensils or salt and pepper. The food was good. The noise level was extremely high. We were celebrating my mom’s birthday but they forgot that too. Overall, it might be better for carryout.

    Our dinner was very good and our waiter was very nice. We were seated right away. However, it was so noisy that I could hardly hear the two people that were at the table with me. I would not go back inside again. I might try it during the summer and eat outside and see how the noise level is at that time.
