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

I brought my family to San Marco's to celebrate my son's high school graduation. I had been to San Marco's once before for a company dinner and remembered that I liked it, but forgot just how good the food is here. We started with an antipasto dish that had generous portions of cured meats and cheeses. For dinner, I tried... More

We have enjoyed many wonderful meals at San Marco. Our New Year's Eve dinner was especially delightful. My wife and I took a life-long friend who was in town for the Christmas Season and who is a world traveler and a connoisseur of fine food and wine. Our friend ordered the wild boar and thoroughly enjoyed it. He was surprised... More
