Sam-Bucco's Miso- Marinated Atlantic Haddock special is one of the best tasting seafood entrees you'll find. I know-I've been dining there over the past ten years! The fresh haddock is pan-seared, placed atop a classic saucier's peach schnapps cream sauce, and graced by a trio of lightly seared, sweetly tender Gulf shrimp. The creative angel hair tart. the dish's divine co-star, is formed into a pillow-like warm cake with capellini, egg yolk, Parmesan and cream, then pan-sautéed till crisp on the outside and lusciously tender inside. Add lightly crunchy broccoli, and this may be your Sam-Bucco's go to dish, too. Oh, I'm getting ahead of myself! Start your Continental-style dining with a luscious bruschetta, rich she-crab or meatless pea soup, a classic Caesar or the Capriciosa salad's house-made mozzarella, arugula and balsamic dressing. Wines are nicely priced, or have a drink from the full bar Try the Florida grouper; tender veal treated a myriad of ways; duck Grand Marnier, or savory sirloin with 'shrooms and Italian sweet sausage!
Brian Angelo, Sam-Bucco's owner, continues Sam-Bucco's decade-long relaxed, casually elegant style in a setting that's perfect for friends to gather or romantic dining. Treat yourself to classic European favorites as well as unique daily specials-all are prepared from scratch. Executive chef Alfredo Fregoso's masterful touch is on every dish! Service is attentively first rate as servers anticipate your needs, while refilling your aromatic basket of fresh baked bread. Portion sizes are generous; many dishes feature local organic produce.
