Great value and Excellent food!

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday, and are pretty selective in our italian restaurants. I have been to the Fonthill location and loved it - and the Port Colborne location did not disappoint! Excellent, attentive service .... nice ambience .... but the best part was the food! Although... read more

This was a our first visit, so we "sampled" a few dishes. They have some very creative and good dishes (the gnocchi, the chicken under a brick) are all a little different but executed very well. This is where the chef seems to excel. The lobster bisque is amazing - be warned, one must wait a few minutes - but... More

Our Canadian family suggested the restaurant and made reservations. It's a good thing too because the place was full. We shared an appetizer (escargot style shrimp) and a Canadian salad with nuts and a maple dressing. I'm sorry I don't remember the precise names, just how good everything tasted. I think my entree was called Fettucine Milani. It was loaded... More

Excellent Italian food. The restaurant has a very nice patio if you prefer to sit outside. Be sure to make reservation. It is located downtown and is within walking distance if you're attending Canal Days.

I took my wife to Niagara Horseplay which is about a 6 minute car ride away for our anniversary. I needed to find somewhere nice to sit down and celebrate this important milestone. I found out about this place through TripAdvisor's reviews and you can count me as another believer. They really took care of us. They also catered to... More

In my opinion the best restaurant in Port Colborne, whether you go on Thurs. or Fri for lunch or during the week for dinner. Reasonably prices, great atmosphere, superior staff and excellent food. You would not be disappointed.

We've been coming to San Marco's for years but I never think to review places in my own back yard here on TA! That is going to change - I'm proud of the Niagara Region and the great places we have to eat and drink! San Marco's has to be one of our favorite spots for great Italian food. We... More

I have been going there for several years. Food is consistent and service is good. When you enter a restaurant and the owner is sitting at the bar drinking wines and you'd think she would at least say hi. (Even strangers on the street smile or say hi.) she has NEVER acknowledged me or any other patrons. That is not... More

Fred D, Owner at San Marco's Ristorante, responded to this review

I don't often reply to reviews. It is a no win situation. Yours, however, took a personal shot at me. You like the food and the restaurant, but you don't like me because I apparently have overlooked you on many visits. Frankly, you are THE first person who has said I don't know my customers. You have no idea what... More
