Birthday dinner

I attended a friends birthday dinner here about 2 weeks ago. We met in the bar and we nearly all ate from the special 2 course deal menu. The food was good and reasonably priced and service prompt. It was a midweek meal and given the location miles from Bolton it was fairly busy. The... read more

Dined here before and the food is to die for. The use of the fresh produce from the farm behind makes it much more enjoyable knowing the food is fresh. The atmosphere inside is very nice and I felt very relaxed. Will be returning soon!

After not visiting San Marino for an number of years due to a past previous experience, a family get together prompted this location as it was central for all. After being seated, and orders taken the starters didn't take too long, I had the halloumi and mushroom starter which was not at all what I expected but okay. The main... More

Not been for a while and the food is usually good but this time I was disappointed, the starter's were nice but when it came to the main course I was not very impressed. I had steak which was cooked exactly how I like it but it was very stringy and hard to chew. I think they need to change... More

We visited San Marino when it first opened and have not been back until this week. We live within walking distance and wanted somewhere to go for our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We started with garlic bread and it was very tasty. We both then... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife last month, some years after we last visited, and the question we both asked, was why had we left it so long? I'm pretty sure there has been a change in management since then, posibly several. The menu was fresh, imaginitive and very much mediterranean. The staff were very pleasant and informative and...

We visited as two adults and three children. A lovely place with a great atmosphere. The children's menu was a total bargain at £4.95 for 3 courses and the food was good quality; home made fish fingers, pizza or pasta with a starter & ice cream. All the mains were cooked beautifully and very tasty and were even nicer than... More

Me and my partner adore this place. We were let down by a hotel we had booked our wedding reception at and found San Marino’s by chance whilst searching for a new venue to host our party. We went in for a chat to Giuseppe and he was absolutely lovely! We were made to feel really comfortable and later that... More

I had always driven past this gem, dotted to the side of Belmont Road and never actually been. Until last month. Now, I find myself ADDICTED! 3 TIMES IN JUST 1 MONTH! Let me make this clear, I love Italian food and would like to think I am quite fussy. The service is absolutely brilliant and staff are incredibly helpful,... More
