Chose this restaurant, as it was conveniently located near our hotel and to get out of the torrential rain. Friendly welcome from the staff. The restaurant is split into a dining area and an area near the bar. As we hadn't made a reservation, we...More

We were staying right next to this restaurant and came here on a whim. We were glad we did! Great pasta, delicious sauce, and fresh seafood. We were in France for about a week and a half and appreciated the change up in cuisine. Friendly...More

After spending several days in the dusty scorching heat and dust of Hellfest, my friend and I were looking forward to a slightly more expensive, civilised affair. We followed the reviews and sat down outside San Marco and ordered two Cocktail Maison, which turned up...More

Went mainly through the TripAdvisor review. We only had the one course which was the special salad, which was nice, especially as it had been up to 33 degrees C that day. Also had the house cocktail, which was pleasant enough in that nice holiday...More

We popped into this restaurant late in the evening but they were very accomodating. The restaurant is quite small but it makes for a cosy atmosphere. Menu choice is very good. I settled for Carbonara, which was very tasty. Curiously they only offer Italian wines...More

We managed to get a booking at this restaurant on Sat 14 May. At first it looks like many of the others nearby in the touristy bit of town but it was really an authentic Italian restaurant with a fairly small menu but specialising in...More

As recommended by other reviews, we made reservations for 8pm on a Wednesday night. Except for deciding to dine at San Marco in the first place this proved to be the wisest decision. The restaurant quickly filled to capacity and those that did not have...More

Seems strange to be eating Italian food in Nantes, but my wife and I were feeling over fed after several days in Muscadet and Saumur. San Marco was a good alternative. Friendly and efficient service. Food is not fancy but very appetizing. Prices are reasonable....More
