Dinner at Sam Bucco Bistro

Sam Bucco Bistro (Sam Bucco Bistro) is a restaurant in North Naples that is located in the plaza where Naples Tomatoes was before they closed. They have been at this location almost 9 years.

I asked one of the employees where the name of the restaurant came from. He said because one of the owners is Sam and bucco has to do his love for osso bucco (Osso Bucco ), literally bone with a hole in Italian. One of my favorites meals also.

Upon coming into the restaurant, there is a nice bar area,

Brian, the MC, was very nice and made us feel very welcome.

When you are seated there is a very well appointed, inviting table,

I ordered an appetizer, portobello ala lyonaisse. It was a portobello mushroom cap with roasted red pepper, goat cheese, arugula and tomato basil oil. Lyonaisse (Lyonaisse) generally means cooked with onion, and I am sure there was some in there. It was delicious.

My dining companion ordered, as always, salmon. It was served with scampi sauce and scalloped potatoes. Very nice.

I had the veal chop. Wow! What a portion! It was stuffed with roasted red peppers and fontina cheese and finished with a porcini (Porcini) chianti (Chianti) reduction mashed potatoes and a vegetable , heavenly.

Sam Bucco Bistro is the bomb. In the slow months, they offer a promo of 40% off your entire check, even glasses of wine.  A real value. Sorry that's gone now, but other promotions are still are offered. Eat here. Sam Bucco Bistro will not disappoint.
