This is a local restaurant so we wanted to love it but, after multiple disappointing visits, we're giving up. This time around the food was bland, dry, and-- as always -- overpriced for the quality. The servers were nice, but they couldn't salvage a mediocre meal and experience. We've been to Italy -- certainly NOT EVEN CLOSE to the food... More

Always excellent! San Marco is our family's favorite restaurant and it is also great for business meetings. We are very picky about Italian food and you won't be disappointed.

Being Italian I am very fussy when it comes to Italian restaurants. This is the real thing. NO chicken on pasta or spaghetti with gravy! Very gentile atmosphere with wonderful service. I have been many times and never disappointing! My son even picked this for his elementary school graduation celebration lunch and I gladly complied! They didn't have Bucatini All'amatriciana,...

Worst experience ever, first time we ever had to walk out of a restaurant. There was one man who appeared to be the only waiter for the room. He took forever to come over to our table to ask us if we wanted drinks. When he did he displayed a very arrogant and smug attitude toward us. A server than... More

This is our go to restaurant for an excellent meal. Never disappointed, a wide selection of delightful choices will require many return visits. It can get crowded and noisy sometimes, but all of that fades away with the first bite. An efficient waitstaff keeps things moving at a pleasurable pace.

EWe had an excellent dinner with great service. The food is always good here but sometimes the service is a bit rushed but this time the service was well paced.

We have delightedly eaten at this restaurant many times, for family occasions, for social outings, or quiet dinners for two. The service is impeccable, worthy of a fine restaurant. The food matches the service. We have truly loved everything that we have eaten in the restaurant. I don't love the bar. I would definitely order my drinks at the table.... More

Loved the food and yes the waiters can seem a little pretentious, but the worst part was the bartender. After dinner, went in for an after dinner drink. The bartender was so obnoxious, I will never go there again. You would have thought he owned the place with the comments he made. Only giving one star because he ruined the... More

My wife and I were taken to lunch here before a meeting nearby. Our immediate impression was that it was a very attractive restaurant in the Italian style. We were immediately offered drinks, but three of us ordered iced tea and my wife asked only for water. There was a marvelous selection of domestic and foreign wines available. The waiter... More
