We keep going back which says a lot. We hit others to mix it up but this is definitely one where we keep coming back. All single person sizes although they are big for one person. Love the meat lovers New York while my wife tends to opt for the Brie with truffle oil. Both very tasty....salads also quite large. I had a Caesar which I enjoyed while my wife had burrata with heirloom tomatoes..very tasty.

We had a late lunch on Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Because it was hot, we choose to select several appetizers to share. Curried cauliflower w/lemon aioli. brussels sprouts w/balsamic glaze & walnuts, a Mediterranean sampler. Everything was delicious, and because we were sharing we weren't overloaded with food. Do Not Miss the brussels sprouts....they're a wonderful surprise.

Sammy's is pleasant for just about anyone including families. The menu is varied, and vegan food and salads can easily be had. Highchairs available. Parking is upstairs and behind, and the restaurant is easily accessible. No stairs. There is an escalator and an elevator if one parks on the street or first floor. Sammy's is in The El Paseo Gardens. They serve wine/liquor, and I suggest that you stick to the bar list of drinks, as they aren't so great about making custom drinks. There is outdoor (patio) seating during the cooler months. Food is good and the portions (especially salads) are large.

Excellent service on repeated visits to this restaurant. Nice variety of selections that range from creative and tasty appetizers to pastas to pizzas. Good selection of wines and beer. And who can forget the amazing Messy Sundae--drowning in a luscious mixture of hot fudge & caramel sauces!!

This California Pizza place just never disappoints - no matter ether its eatery is in the Valley or on the Coast. Their can-do of special requests for the pizza is always appreciated - so is the quality of the food.
