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

A party of us went to San Marco on a busy Saturday night and left impressed by just about every element of the restaurant. The food, service and, most importantly, the food were all very good indeed. I kicked off with the meat anti pasti which wasn't the most imaginative dish ever but still good and a decent quantity. The... More

My wife decided that she would treat me to a meal at San Marino for my birthday, Monday 5th January. We checked online that it was open, 6pm on the date, and headed up there at 7pm. It was with utter surprise that we arrived to find it in total darkness and no one present. After checking on the website,... More
