Very cozy restaurant and reasonably priced!!! (Considering you're in mid-town Manhattan.) Profession staff and attentive service. Standard fare you'd find in most upscale Italian restaurant with a few specials. Great menu if you like Italian. We tasted each other apps (love the Zucchini Fritti!) and entrees (Vitello Parmesan, Lasagnette Gastronomiche, Ravioli al Funghi) and they were all delicious, the right... More

I have visited San Martin whenever I am in New York. It has a great atmosphere and great service. It's not plush, but the food is great and you will be looked after well. Well worth a visit.

All of the food was wonderful, and the wait staff, all men, were very attentive and charming. We enjoyed our mussels appetizer, and our pasta entrees. The cannoli was a little less than I had hoped, but still good.

My two daughters (teenagers) and I found this restaurant a couple of years ago, just walking around. Had no reservation, but they were able to take us. Really warm friendly service, excellent food, nothing too fancy. Very comfortable, unpretentious, moderate noise level, moderate prices. We've been back several times and have had extremely pleasant experiences each time.

Great Italian food with a Spanish flair. I had a short ribs entree that was one of the best short rib recipes I have ever had. Reasonable prices, including the wine list. Two appetizers, two entrees, bottle of wine, shared dessert for $170 including a generous tip. Returned the next night for cocktails and dessert. Friendly staff, all who have... More

Despite a slightly quirky appearance the food here was delicious and reasonably priced. The restaurant was clean and pleasant and the waiters made us feel very welcome. Picture this, pink neon ceiling backlighters, multicoloured leather booths and "Friday night fight" boxing on the TV behindh the bar area - almost surreal!. Nevertheless, the food was fantastic, prepared on time and... More
