It was the first time to the San Marino restaurant,much to our shame its been open for 18 years,ok on with the review, The restaurant is a bit small but that adds to its attraction , I'll just review my meal ,For starter I ordered Arancini,fried rice balls with Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese,and a chilli relish,( the relish is HOT ),a very good starter, main meal was Spaghetti Polpette,meatballs with spaghetti with a chilli , garlic and tomato sauce,that blended in with the starter , I chosed the house red wine ,a really nice wine, overall a very nice evening ,with my daughter and wife, the service was spot on and attentive ,

Had two starters creamy garlic mushrooms and bruschetta, we both enjoyed the quality and the portion size. Followed by two fillet steaks, cooked to perfection, All trimmed and great char grilled taste, had a creamy brandy peppercorn sauce to accompany the meat, all very flavoursome. The meat was trimmed so according to front of house wasn't as big as a regular fillet so discount was made in the final bill which means to me ...quality control is of utmost importance to this restaurant! Finished the meal with a lemon ice cream and strawberries....a delicious pallet cleanser. Overall the staff were very efficient, attentive and polite! The food delicious and great value as the total bill came to under £65 including a bottle of pino Grigio! A definite return for me and my partner.

I have been to San Marino countless times over the years and it has never ever disappointed. Every occasion (and non-occasion) we have visited has been a buzzing atmosphere with fantastic Italian food. The recent decor modernisation looks fresh and inviting. The restaurant feels warm and you feel like apart of the family. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, it really is a gem.

Been here quite a few times but never wrote a review , went last night for a meal to celebrate our anniversary and couldnt find a fault with the meal, the staff , everything, garlic mushrooms and mussels in chilli and garlic sauce to die for then my wife had chicken rosmarino and I had scogliera spaghetti washed down with a bottle of house wine , absolutely beautiful, the staff were attentive but not in your face, and a lovely little restaurant, and not expensive at all . thoroughly recommend this place and look forward to our next visit
