Wonderful Italian Food

We attended a luncheon after a service. The team catered this 3-course meal plus dessert and coffee for 65. They did an excellent job serving, checking to ensure each table had enough bread or drinks. The food was very good. A fresh salad with tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers & mixed greens with a... read more

San Marco is a gem. The meals are cooked to perfection. The osso buca iis the best I have ever had. Sevice is impecable, fast and efficient. The servers are top notch and have been at San Marco a very long time. A great restaurant for specioal occasions.

We had heard so much about this restaurant that we just had to try it (we live in Florida currently but grew up in the area). Very disappointing. First of all, there was an attitude about the place. We distinctly felt like we were outsiders; many of the customers were clearly regulars. A woman whom we were told was one... More

High-end Italian restaurant, some people mentioned it was pricey but most items are anywhere from 18 to 25 which I do not find that pricey for the quality that you get.

My wife and I have eaten here at least a half dozen times. Each time has been similar: service is somewhat stuffy, the menu doesn't change much, the food is a notch above okay, and it's pricey. We have given this restaurant plenty of opportunity, there are too many other options to keep going back.

Just visited this restaurant for the first time and can't believe we waited so long. This is a family owned establishment with a warm wonderful atmosphere. Loved the live piano in the bar and we could hear him playing all through dinner in the dining room. The service was excellent. They even went to the trouble to take one of... More

Four of us dined at Ristorante San Marco over the weekend. This place never disappoints! Reservations are a must on the weekend as this place was packed. The menu is delightful, but I'll admit that each time I go, I order one of the many amazing specials that they offer each night. On Saturday, we started with a couple of... More

This restaurant is polarizing. There are those that love it and those that don't. And it really comes down to demographics. The geriatric set swears by tried-and-true American interpretations of Italian food, including the perpetually always on "special" Veal Osso Buco. For younger diners (under age 55) with more contemporary tastes, you'll find the whole experience just kind of sad.... More
