We came to Sabatino's for dinner, just prior to Valentine's Day, in part because we knew that there would be great piano music at the bar. Most likely, that was the reason that the restaurant was really crowded. However, the service was very efficient, quick...More

I checked the website and did not see anything posted for Christmas. I would suggest, as Rich did, to call and ask them and then you can make a reservation if you want to.

Welcome to Sabatinos a beautiful old school Italian restaurant with delcious food and great ambieance. You get bread including focaccia - a kind of pizza bread, then a salad and soup, then an entree - try the veal Parmesan, and a side of pasta. Many recommend the baked Alaska dessert. Sabatino"s is dimly lit with flowers on every table, this Italian-American restaurant has been the perfect date restaurant for about 25 years. Diners might have their steak or seafood entrees complemented by the serenade of strolling musicians in the main room or piano music in the bar area. Angelo Pagni, who owns the restaurant with his brother, Enzo, said Sabatino's is popular in the neighborhood for a lot of reasons, food and atmosphere and chief among them. Stop in today!
