Excellent food, atmosphere spot on

Myself and my wife enjoyed an impromptu meal on a Saturday evening. Although very busy the staff were very organised, friendly and had the timings between courses down to perfection. Very rare but we both enjoyed all three courses and as a bonus the wine was lovely and not too pricey.

This restaurant is the only Italian restaurant I go to. The staff are always very friendly with good service. You never feel like they are trying to rush you. Fabulous food no matter what you choose. Reasonable prices.

My partner and I went to San Marino on Saturday 30th Jan 2016, during the evening. The staff was friendly, and gave a great service. There was a good variety on the menu, and reasonable price. It is very busy, so probably need to book on a weekend. The cocktails are really good too, especially the san marino cocktail. We... More

We've visited San Marino on several occasions and have always been impressed. The restaurant itself is smart and well laid out, the welcome warm and the service excellent throughout . This last time was a party of us for a birthday and they made it into a real special occasion. Seven of us had starters, mains and a couple of... More

Having not been for a year or two I was pleased to see San Marino hasn't lost any of its character and high standards, Service was spot on , recommend arriving early and enjoying a couple of drinks in the bar first , good selection of beers. The food was delicious and nice wine.

Just got home from a lovely evening at San marinos. My husband took me there for my birthday and as always it was lovely. Someone once told me that a good restaurant is always busy and San Marino's is. There's a really good atmosphere about the place. Definitely advise you to ring and book in advance or you may be...

Food: We had a special mozzarella starter and bruschetta. Starters were well presented and arrived together. Mains, we ordered lamb souvlaki and a plain fillet steak. Again the dishes were well presented and came in a reasonable amount of time. Dessert-wise we shared a warm chocolate brownie and ice cream. This was well presented and tasted great although it was... More

The mark of a good restaurant is using fresh food. Using fresh food carries some risks. We ordered mussels and they started off very tasty. We opened up a shell and it was full of a muddy sludge. The dish had to go back. Whether that rogue mussel could have been discovered in preparation is a moot point. The mark... More

Our Boxing treat went so badly wrong. We turned up to be told the oven was broken so no pizzas, garlic bread etc. With hindsight we should have left then. Two of our party had risotto which tasted like it had come out of a packet. Other main courses were average and portions small. We have had some good meals... More
