Went early on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was fairly quiet but not empty. Menu was typical Sambucas with a few extra pizzas. Ordered a couple of pizzas and drinks. Drinks came quickly with pizzas not far behind. Very nice. Offered desserts but wasn't hungry enough.

Went to Sambuca 2 with my partner and we were both exceptionally pleased with the meal and the service. I challenge anyone to find a restaurant offering such a quality product at prices as reasonable as this. Would certainly return.

Popped in on spec for a quick lunch. We were not disappointed. Good food and service for 3.95. Made a nice change from fish and chips. Can't comment on evening menu/service.
