The menu includes fettuccine carbonara sautéed with bacon and smoked ham ($12.95), chicken portobello stuffed with mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes ($13.95), and shrimp parmigiana topped with housemade marinara ($12.95).
Flickering candles and a grand chandelier fill Sam's Ristorante's high-ceilinged dining room with a romantic glow. Graceful arches and painted landscapes foster a classic ambiance that carries through to the menu of traditional Italian cuisine. The kitchen crafts its own marinara sauce in house to add rich flavor to orders of veal parmigiana.

Sauces made with marsala wine and portobello mushrooms coat chicken breasts and center-cut fillets with more flavor than a spice-rubbed quilt.
