“nothing fancy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We were looking for somewhere to eat and had a look at the menu which was also in English ( helpful when your Italian is poor). Im not a fish lover but my partner is but there was also a good range of other dishes. We went in and there is nothing fancy about this restaurant but the food is excellent. Had a bottle of local red wine to accompany our meal. my partner had the mixed fish starter which he says was excellent and quite a plateful. I went for Tagiatelle Bolognaise for my main which was fantastic, best I've every tasted. Great, fresh, homemade food. Great value for money. Highly recommended.

“No pretences, just good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

For me already a good sign was that the place was full on a Tuesday winter afternoon.

We went to Cesenatico for a walk and found the place by chance. "San Marco" is a fish restaurant, though they have also meat dishes on the menu. We went for a bottle of still water, a bottle of the wine of the house, cozze alla marinara, cozze gratinate, then we shared a plate of grilled fish, for desert we took one tiramisu and one meringue, followed by 2 coffees. Total: 48 euro. A great deal for what you get - the food was fresh, tasty and well served.

Highly recommended!

“Beautiful Seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Ristorante San Marco is a dozen paces from Cesenatico's fish market, and they're both right on the canal, where the fishing boats unload their morning's catch. We had a bit of everything--grilled, steamed, raw, deep-fried, steamed in wine (we were a large group and our guide had ordered for us). It is the best seafood I have had in my life. The freshness of the food and the skill with which it was prepared are unmatched, in my book. Service was efficient and unobtrusive.

When I return to Cesenatico--and I will--I will dine at Ristorante San Marco again and again.
