Amazing

Absolutely amazing. Could not have asked for a more perfect evening as it always is here. Well presented and attentive staff, vast menu and glorious deserts menu. My personal favourite is the chocolate brownie. Will be back again next month.

Having made a quick trip to Blackpool to visit our Son he and his partner suggested we go to their Favourite local Italian. As we have our favourite Italian in Wooler, Northumberland we were interested to compare. Well we were not disappointed as the setting was excellent, and table booked we sat down and just as we were about to... More

I had a lovely meal here whilst catching up with friends, the only issue was the music. They had a live singer on and it was so loud we couldn't heat a word each other were saying. In the end we gave up and left to catch up elsewhere, which was a shame because dessert sounded good!

The food and service at this restaurant paralleled if not surpassed some of the best meals we have had in Rome. We ordered the lobster bisque, potted shrimp and garlic bread with cheese to start the meal and the mains were spaghetti tourino and pizza with olives and garlic, bellisimo! The service was attentive and nothing was too much trouble... More

Consequently 3 diners were waiting for some time whilst the other "caught up" Main course arrived after another wait staff very sow to clear... More

We visit San Marco regularly and we've never been disappointed. The staff are very attentive. I have tried lots of different things on the menu but my favourite is the king prawns in garlic and chilli to start, these usually come with the shell on but I rather they didn't so the staff always make sure I get king prawns...

Without going into long and boring detail, my visit was below standard. The food was OKish. What let it down dramatically was the staff. Basically not interested and not trained properly. I went to open a tab to buy drinks for everyone in our party and the "barman" said if you get me the order I will do it for... More
