Sergio's in Sanford, FL

Sergio's is located in one of the worst possible spots for an Italian restaurant in my opinion, almost completely hidden behind an empty liquor store and a self-storage place. Given it's hard to find location, it's hard to imagine how Sergio's gets many customers, but there are indeed always other diners when I've eaten there. I visited twice a few years ago, trying both pizza and pasta. I wasn't impressed and had no interest in returning...
Recently, I agreed to give them another try to see if they were any better this time around. It turns out they did improve! Sergio's had a dinner buffet going on, so I gave that a try. The normal buffet logic is quantity over quality, but everything I tried actually tasted good. Way better than anything I remember eating here in the past.

My meal started with a salad and a bowl of pasta fagioli.

Next, I had a plate of baked ziti, chicken cacciatore, manicotti, meatball calzone, and garlic bread. All this Italian food was really rich and heavy, so I stopped eating after this plate, regardless of the all-you-can-eat nature of the buffet!

Either I caught Sergio's on bad days in the past or their food has improved, but I enjoyed my meal and would gladly return!
