Great Steak!

Steak here is brilliant! I couldn't choose a sauce I liked and they made a special one for me which I thought was great. Decor is very dated and in well over due a re vamp- but that doesn't make the food any less tasty!

I really liked this restaurant. It had an Italian, old fashioned atmosphere and I felt like time has stopped there. The service level was excellent, I felt valuated as a customer and the dishes were really tasty. Restaurant has nice and pleasant design.Unfortunately it is closed now.

After years of excellent service it seems San Marco has closed. We went last week to find a sign in the window to say the business had closed. Such a shame and just as generally things are looking up in Far Gosford Street. Perhaps someone will bring it back in a new incarnation. Coventry has too few good restaurants and... More

We went here for my mums 60th. I discussed a set menu with an excellent rate and plenty of choice with the owner of the restaurant. There was 25 people, all our starters came out together hot and tasty as did the mains and deserts. Overall it was an amazing evening, great staff and incredible food, not one complaint. Well...

Not been for sometime and enjoyed our return. San Marco has been here since 1992 so it has some staying power as Far Gosford Street has not always been an easy place to run a restaurant. The FarGo regeneration project is bringing much needed new business to the area and I hope San Marco can benefit from it. For too... More

We had a lovely meal here and only heard of the place through groupon, very attentive service. Our waiter was a very eccentric little Italian man and it really added to the atmosphere of the place. I almost forgot that we were on Far Gosford street!

Visited plenty of times with my mother, we love the coffee and often have some lunch. Haven't been at dinner time so sorry, can't comment on that! The staff are really lovely, and the food is always fresh and delicious. One of my favourite places to visit in Coventry, definitely worth a trip. Also good value for money!

We visited this restaurant with a groupon voucher and we had a lovely evening. Food was amazing and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Will definitely return and would pay the full price.
