“Good Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Small and dark interior, but the service is excellent and the food is even better. Great assortment of pasta dishes, fish, chicken and meat dishes. Moderate prices and good portions. You won't leave hungry.

“Still One of the Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

From the minute Orlando greets you at the door until you get a visit from the dessert cart, you will enjoy the ambiance, the service and the food at this perennial favorite on Motor Parkway. Examine carefuly the appetizer choices on the cart they will roll over to your table and remember that this is in addition to the choices in the menu. The next thing you should realize is that if you do not see something on the menu that you wanted, the chef can still accommodate you. A decent wine list, a meticulous bartender and the dessert cart will make for an enjoyable dinner whether with colleagues or as a family celebration. Still a well kept secret after almost 30 years.

“Excellent Italian Meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Hidden gem...my fiance saw great reviews and decided to make us a reservation. It was a great old school Italian restaurant. They didn't rush us and the food was amazing. Atmosphere was not very updated but it didn't matter because the meal was so great.

“Go to this restaurant for a real treat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

This is a classic high quality Italian restaurant with excellent standard and creative signature dishes from the owner. The menue leans toward norhern Italian but you have a wide range. The staff is wonderful as is the owner and host Orlando. Decor is classy and the wine list has won awards. It`s not as pricy as it sounds and they do wine dinners that are fun and educational. This is not your typical red sauce spaghetti house! I have been there numerous times and they are always consistent which is rare these days.

“Fantastic Wine Dinners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

I have been going to San Marco for many years. What is very rare these days is to see the same skillful professional waiters that have remained with the restaurant after all these years. Service is always great. The food is Northern Style Italian and has a nice different slant. The owner and the chef have invented the most ingenieous Antipasta cake you have ever seen. One of my favorate things about San Marco is the fantastic wine dinners. The food is pared up with some really great wines from here and Europe. The glass can always be refilled to sample some of the finest vintages around.
