Four of us plus a preschooler went last night. It seemed like they didnâ€™t really want us there, but the service was very efficient (probably because it was close to closing time) and the food was fantastic. No one was unkind, they just seemed businesslike. For example, instead of asking â€œAre you ready to order?â€ the wait walked up and said ,â€What?â€ Guessing that may be what he meant, I told him. He looked at my friend next to me and said, â€œWhat?â€ We found it funny and strange instead of rude. All in all it was a nice, efficient dinner.
Wonderful old school Italian food at very reasonable prices. Three of us dined for $100 and had house wine, shared an appetizer and a desert. Everything was delicious. The tiramisu was a delightful way to end the meal.
My favorite Italian in Silver Spring. Home made pastas. Every dish full of flavor. Fantastic environment where Sergio walks the floor ensuring each guest gets the experience they're looking for. Also, wait staff doesn't rush you or constantly check in. Full Italian experience. Highly recommend.
Food is soo good. Definitely worth the visit.
Amazing service, great and affordable wine selection, delicious gourmet food!
Sergio is here every day and he and his kitchen and wait staff are grand old timers who prepare food with consistency and care!
The inviting smells as u enter welcome u. I ordered spinach manicotti & a side order of meat balls. OMG - delicious.
Wonderful dining experience. We felt like part of the family from the time we walked in. The food was great and arrived in a timely fashion. Wait staff was attentive and polite. Pricing was more than expected but well worth the money.
Sergio has it all. Traditional Italian fare with great table wine, bread and service in a simple trattoria setting.
Had not been to this restaurant in a year, but the food and service was still the same --- excellent, excellent, excellent. Will be returning again only sooner this time. Love this place. Valet parking is only $5.00 if you are eating at Sergio's.
Love this place. All Italian family staff. Amazing pasta. Great service. Super friendly. Yummy food and desserts. Don't let the unassuming atmosphere throw you. This hidden gem is not to be missed!
Amazing food and staff
Service and food was absolutely amazing. Great food at a reasonable price!
We were surprised by the quality of the Italian food hidden away in the basement of this Silver Spring hotel. We used trip advisor to find a quick meal after a movie downtown and picked it because of its #1 position. The service was a bit slow but the food was outstanding.
This restaurant featuring northern Italian cuisine has been our family favorite ever since we started going there in 1988. It is a hidden gem, family owned and operated. Sergio often makes the pasta of the day himself. Once you have dined here you will be remembered and greeted like one of the family whenever you return. Everything on the menu is delicious and the service is relaxed and gracious. The specials of the day are always outstanding. The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the food and service. Canâ€™t say enough nice things about Sergioâ€™s!
Great food and service
I work in the area and needed to find a cozy, quiet restaurant for a lunch date with a colleague. Sergio Ristorante Italiano exceeded my expectations with the food, service staff, location and decor. It was quiet and great for conversation. The food (Crab cakes) and white wine pairing were excellent The server was very nice and attentive. I will definitely return!
The service and food was quite good. Not the best I've ever had and not something to write home about, but above average definitely.
Ben and Mrs Too consider themselves extremely fortunate to have a place like Sergioâ€™s so convenient and so very, very enjoyable, whether for a sumptuous lunch or a quiet and leisurely evening meal. You would think we would be there much more often than we are, but we have grown quite long in the tooth and simply do not get around as much as we once did. This coming spring will mark fifty years of dining with Sergio dating beck to his service as maitreâ€™d to the incredibly zany Joseph dâ€˜Assereto at the long gone Cantina dâ€™Italia in Washington. You would think that at least once in the hundreds of meals we have eaten there and at Sergioâ€™s we would have caught him on a bad day and been served a disappointing plate. Not so, not even once. This time, Mrs Too ordered the ravioli Toscanini with fresh asparagus in a dazzling cream sauce. Ben had the pollo fantasia, which is a chicken breast in its own version of sauce, along with homemade pasta. Ben seldom, either at home or out, has a chicken breast since he always finds it a bit dry for his taste. Not alla Sergio, it isnâ€™t. Served with the classically simple green salad and the usual lightly crusted Italian bread, our meals were simply extraordinary. All of this, with tax and tip for $45.00 including Benâ€™s old fashion cocktail and valet parking. In busy downtown Silver Spring, Sergio offers respite from the street noise and hassle at great bargain rates. Donâ€™t miss it. Itâ€™s a great place to meet with business associates as well.
