“Nice atmosphere - food average”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We booked in advance at this restaurant as we had wanted to visit for a while, and didn't want to leave it to chance. Upon our arrival we were given a dark table at the back of the restaurant, when quite clearly there were other tables free. We asked if we could move and were given a table at the front which was nice and light. Don't know why we weren't given this in the first place! I had the scallops to start, which were good so I was looking forward to the main. However, my pasta with salmon was very bland, the sauce almost non-existent. My husband had chicken accompanied with a nice selection of vegetables, which he enjoyed. My husband also had a pudding and we had an acceptable bottle of red. Prices were reasonable, the atmosphere relaxed and we will probably eat there again as the location is so convenient, but compared to other Italian restaurants we have been to, the sauces, flavouriings and seasonings all need to be improved.

“Good Food”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I've visited San Marco for years now, and the food is always good. The service is fairly good and the prices are reasonable for the standard of food received. Whether you want pizza or steak, San Marco serves it well and it always tastes good.

If you want the meal to be more budget, the 'happy hour' is the time to go, although this 'happy hour' is earlier in the night then most people would want to go out for a meal.

The only problem is that no matter where you sit within the restaurant, your clothes will smell of food. It's unavoidable, but the food does more than make up for it.

“Outstanding! ”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

This was our first visit to this ristorante and everything we experienced here was brilliant, we couldn't find fault with anything, not that we were looking.
The staff were very considerate to our booking requirements (wheelchair user) and very pleasant and understanding when a member of our party was unable to attend.
Food: Outstanding. Well presented, fresh, cooked perfectly and excellent quality.
Wine: Excellent choice and staff very knowledgeable.
Service: Very good service, second to none. All staff were courteous and pleasant.
Ambience: Very well presented ristorante, none of this over the top 'we're all about Italy' malarky, just a pleasant, clean and relaxing environment to enjoy our meal.
Value for money: not the cheapest but for the quality of food and service, we felt value for money was excellent.
We're definitely going to go back
