One of the Best Anywhere !

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. I tried the dish I like to call "sex on a Plate" it... More

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

The owner of this restaurant is a really nice guy. He makes sure your dinner is perfect. Its truly a special place for this part of town. If you want authentic Italian look no further.

We were recently visiting Buffalo for a family wedding. Found San Marco only being 10 minutes drive from our hotel and decided to follow TripAdvisor’ good reviews to pop in for a dinner. Although the restaurant was fully booked for the night, the owner and wait staff made every effort to find a place for us. Was so nice to... More
