Good quality food

Really good italian and seafood, a bit pricey. They accept reservations and that atmosphere is very nice. Good that a restaurant with so many years have recovered since a bed period it had a few years ago.

We are frequent visitors of this restaurant for the last 30 years and we are still attracted to go again and again. Most of the waiters have worked there for decades; so they will know you if you get entrapped with it. Their strength is in pasta, although in fish and seafood they do wonderful plates as well as with... More

We started with parma ham, real fine and thick (I hate those thin shavings), and what followed was just perfect. You could not get a better lasagna even in Italy. And all accompanied with a perfect Chilean Merlot was just made pour day. If you look for something european-italian, this is the place.

My husband and I had the most delicious lunch in Viña today at the San Marcos. I ordered "tilapia in cartoccio". A mix of tilapia fish, asparagus, shrimp and mozzarella seved in a delicious pasterie shell. I thought that nothing could top that.....but the dessert did! We ordered a "Ponderacion"! What a dream to the taste buds! Vanilla ice cream... More

We stumbled upon San Marco when we were looking for someplace to eat lunch the day that we arrived in Chile. Our lunch was so good that we returned for dinner during our Vino Del Mar stay--this is a special place with wonderful food! The pastas are homemade and the pasta dishes are divine (we lived in Italy for two... More

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.

Apart from being a nice little italian family restaurant, the food in this place was great.We had the gnocchis pomodoro one day at lunch, and then we came back the next day (a friday) for dinner. Excellent Italian food, very good service. Let yourself be pleasently surprised at San Marco
