The food is really good, they even have my favorite chilean seafood appetizer which is "machas a la parmesana" YUM. I had the filet wrapped in bacon, my friend had the osobuco, both were absolutely delicious. I totally recommend to try it.

This place was recommended by our hotel. It's not right on the beach with all the tourist traps, it's a block back. The waiters are friendly and happy to battle through the menu with you. All the pastas are homemade and taste delicious. The place had a good number of local people inside which is always a good sign.

My wife and I recently went to my favorite restaurant in Vina del Mar Chile, what we found was that a number of wines listed on the menu were not available. The waiter we had did not know how to pour wine. He touched the glass I told him that it was a no-no to do that. He told me... More

On all my trips to Vina, we always eat here at least once. Quality old school Italian and great steaks and seafood. Great bartender as well. One of my world wide favorites.

This place came highly recommended by our guide, so although it's a bit pricey we decided to try it. My gnocchi in a creamy pesto was fabulous! My husband's risotto with mushrooms was over-salted. The server was clearly annoyed that we didn't speak Spanish and tried his best to stay away from us. We asked for the wine menu and... More

What makes a good restaurant ? Good food and (especially in Chile) NO surprises. The tradicional San Marco restaurant offers good italian food. No food poisoning, no "chilenitis" and a great family entourage. The service is excellent and the restaurant has been run by the same family for over 30 years.
