This local italian offers an ornate and colourful setting which works. The tables are well spaced and offers a romantic feel. We were engaged by the waiter and enjoyed his lively conversation and style. The food was brilliant. We ate from the set lunch menu. The prawn cocktails were ample and tasty. The main courses all met with praise. All... More

Visited here on a busy night recently - I knew it would be expensive from seeing the menu but I visited anyway as was hoping to share a meal to remember with my significant other. The restauraunt has a very relaxed and special atmosphere, it's great for a romantic meal. The waiting staff are polite, friendly and chatty without being... More

We ate here for the first time since 1995. The restaurant has a nice décor with friendly staff and service, soft music in the background but it appears to be less popular than it used to be. Just 6 or 7 tables were occupied on a Saturday night. My girlfriend chose whitebait to start with, which was undercooked and needed... More

Been her many times and have loved it, but on our last visit I was left a little disappointed, not with the service as this is always fantastic but felt the food quality had slightly slipped from previous visits and as it's quite expensive was left feeling it was not value for money. Will be visiting again as we do... More

A real find this is a superb restaurant run by the gregarious Marco. The chef Fabrizio cooks everthing to order. The food is sublime and we had a great evening.

We chose the restaurant because we needed in a hurry a restaurant in the area where we visiting. We discovered it is an excellent place with wonderful service. A pleasure to spend sometime eating slowly and appreciating the food and wines.

We've eaten here a few times. The ambiance is lovely and it looks nice but it's like a restaurant that's stood still for too long. The menu is long and old fashioned and it's not cheap. If they were to reduce the menu but use really fresh ingredients it could be so much better. It's a shame because we would... More

What a fantastic relaxing sunny Sunday afternoon we had in the rear garden of San Marco's. They have a Sunday lunch menu but you can still eat off the Al a carte one. I had the Bresalo to start followed by the liver and onions and my partner had the Scallops and then the veal all which were very good.... More

San Marco is a traditional family run restaurant of a type which is fast dying out. The food is old fashioned Italian but this is no bad thing; it is well cooked and presented with panache by both Marco, the effusive and very attentive owner and his waitress. We chose from both the menu of the day and the main... More
