Big portions and ample seating make this Waterbury staple a still popular destination among old timers and families. But the bottom line is the area and surrounding parking lot is now a haven for petty crime and burglarizing. Gone is any old school "Italian Charm" as that has gone out the window with the recent redo of the decor and... More

A sixteen once Bone in pork chop with potatoes wedges and sweet vinegar peppers. An awesome dish. This is great Italian Restaurant and you can get other delicious entrees that are not strictly Italian The service is outstanding and the food is impeccable. A glass of Lambrusco is a great way to start your dining experience. Don't forget coffee and... More

I ordered stuffed peppers for lunch. I was served 2 large green bell peppers and a side dish of pasta for $12.95. The peppers were fresh and sweet.....no bitterness. I like this restaurant.

A family favorite for 30 years, from anniversary parties to after funeral luncheons, always fabulous. Old world dishes like soffritto and bacala that you can't find anymore. Home made pastas, veal,seafood all outstanding. Great for a large group, try sharing one of the appetizer platters, you won't be disappointed, Service is always good.

For years, this was my families favorite Italian restaurant. You'll understand why when you visit San Marino. The walls are adorned with frescoes of all things Italian and Mediterranean. The layout of the bar and seating areas is pretty nice too. Even the lighting is magnificent. Located in the southern corner of the Colonial Plaza on the western side of... More

We had a family gathering for an evening. Glad to have called ahead for a reservation as the tables were all full. Service was slow as each meal was freshly prepared, but we were out for the social gathering as much as the fine food so we felt unrushed. The pasta was homemade and all entrees were prepared well. Dinners... More

My family spent an afternoon and evening here to celebrate a family member's engagement. We have spent many similar afternoons and evenings here over the years and this is the first time after this restaurant has remodeled. Waterbury natives will recognize the location as "The Plaza" area, which isn't the best to begin with, but the remodeling is pleasant enough.... More
