Make sure you visit San Marco

One of the finest restaurants in the area. Food is magnificent and service likewise. We had a group of 14 who were treated superbly! Sea Bass and scallops are both to die for.

Dropped in late on a week day and we were greeted by a friendly gentleman who seated us immediately. We had to take a little time to peruse the menu, there were so many good choices! We ultimately selected the veal chop and spaghettini pomodoro, preceded by the arugula salad. Mr. Grimaldi recommended the Banfi Chianti Classico to accompany the... More

The restaurant ambience is lovely; the greeting wonderful. Service excellent. The veal dish also very good as was the salad, but for a 'gourmet' Italian restaurant, we were disappointed that the pasta was not homemade and the pasta dish prices were definitely similar to the more involved dishes. Sadly, my husband had the pasta and I had a veal dish.... More

The restaurant is elegant and intimate. The owner personally welcomes you and seats you and the food is some of the best I have had in the world. The wine selection is amazing. Service = outstanding. Never have had a bad meal. We LOVE this place

This is one of the classic spots my wife and I visit when we want an intimate, meticulously prepared, yet un-fussy dining experience. Frank oversees a wonderful experience - traditional but high-end Italian cuisine (with added flair and updates where appropriate), a robust wine list, and servers that are attentive but never, ever impatient or pushy. My personal favorite dish... More

We had our Valentine's dinner there on Friday night. The food and service was beyond what we could have expected. The tomatoes in the Caprese salad were delicious and fresh for a cold February in Buffalo, NY. The veal, the shrimp, the dessert--delicious. Music was a bit too loud but we had a wonderful experience at San Marco!

This is a restaurant we go to a few times a year, usually to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. There has never been a meal we didn't like! This trip I had the lobster ravioli, normally an appetizer dish, but they will make it into an entree dish for you, and it was so good not one was left on the... More

This is my most favorite meals ever. The chef is fantastic. I have tried many different dishes , I can't remember the menu names but I can say the raviolis are out of this world. the sauces are complicated & smooth & delicious & over the top.

Went here for the first time for a friend's birthday....have always loved northern Italian food and this is the best I have had in a very long time. Food was fresh and service is fantastic....small intimate rooms, not at all noisy. a little on the expensive side but more than worth it for any special occasions...will definitely return again.....

My parents live around the corner from this restaurant but had never been. My husband and I were looking for a nice place to take them for my mother's birthday dinner; San Marco came up with good reviews so we decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad we did. The food was excellent, with the fish dishes in... More
