Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food was ok nothing special. I was very disappointed when I checked my receipt to discover the restaurant had charged me £4.01 service charge on my £40.05 bill … I was always under the impression tipping was at the customer own digression? Apparently not at...San Marinos… won’t be going again … just be aware if you are eating here…. DON’T TIP THEY WILL ADD ON 10% THEMSELVES … Cheek….More

Why haven’t we been here before! It’s a great little Italian restaurant offering great food and drinks and served by lovely staff. The portion size is generous and the food is tasty and authentic. The place has a nice atmosphere and I’m glad to say...there wasn’t any loud music making the diners shout to be heard. All in all it’s a real gem and now we know it’s there - we will be back.More

We initially booked into the Baltic Pearl but left after 10 minutes. We’d heard some nice reviews of the Thai place across the road so tried in there, only to find there was no availability. We ended up in San Marino’s and looking back -...we should have come here first! Staff were extremely friendly and chatty which made us feel instantly welcome.

Starters we had the bread platter and marinated Green olives. For mains - I ordered the Risotto and it was delicious, really tasty with lots of flavours! My wife’s chicken and broccoli Alfredo was nice but very bland. Portion sizes was more than we could manage but this was probably my down to the plenty of bread and olives we’d eaten. The only real let down was the price of the drinks - 4 drinks was equal to half the price of the bill. All in all - not a bad experience.More

San Marino is a really nice place for Italian food and pizza and pasta is 50% off I think Mon - Thurs(happy to be corrected). The place is very clean and we were promptly acknowledged and served. Firstly for drinks and we ordered a pizza...each. These were really tasty, nice and hot and very well presented. I had the cheesecake for dessert which was really well presented and very tasty. We went there quite early afternoon and it does seem to get very busy as the day goes on. Our waitress was very pleasant, friendly and efficient. I would recommend San Marino for a very pleasant dining experience.More
