“Plastic food”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

It seems like the cheapest food from Tesco prepared in a microwave. Absolutely tasteless. At least cold beer was brought fast.

“Italians wouldn't be proud”
Reviewed 30 January 2011

San Marzano is located in the very center of Warsaw, on Nowy Świat- probably the most famous street in the city and it should oblige to the best quality. But the restaurant disappoints. It is something between a bistro (good for a lunch) and an elegant italian restaurant. Typical italian dishes like pizza, pasta, salads don't surprise but in general the food is tasty and fresh. The cook prepares the dishes before the customer's eyes. In the rush hours the restaurants offers special and encouraging lunch menu for 20 zł (beverage, appetizer and main dish). And this id the end of positives sides. The interiors are blank ang boring. There is no atmosphere. But what is the worst about San Marzano is the SERVICE. You can wait for a menu 20 minutes and no one even bothers. Then, after receiving somehow a menu, you will wait another 20 min just to order something to drink. The staff is unpleasant. Overall, the food is not worth such a nightmare. I recommand You to choose another restaurant, which are on Nowy Świat in abundance.

“Sole rather than pizza”
Reviewed 30 January 2011

Name inviting, the decor not bad .. and so intrigued I came to the restaurant where I ate possibly the worst pizza in my life (apart from those pseudopizza-piece sold in railway stations). It was quite hard, burnt cake, with dried cheese and a piece of salami, and it is all in price inversely proportional, this means that the worse the pizza - the higher the price. Therefore I do not recommend!

“Simply good pizza”
Reviewed 9 August 2010

This chain is known as Pizza Express or Pizza Milano in some other countries.
Marzano is a nice place to eat your regular Pizza, better than the one served in delivery chains and some minor pizzerias. Sizewise it's the 'one pizza per person' kind, but the prices are reasonable and the 'Quattro Formaggi' is really good here.
What I don't like is that once they decorated the rooms with bookshelves and CUT the books to conform to the shelves. But it's been a long time ago...
