We visited the restaurant for a Sunday lunch. The waiters were very welcoming and helpful when we had to order something suitable and simple for our 2yr old. We had a nice starter (albacore carpaccio) and ordered fish soup and scaloppine al Marsala as main dishes. We were happy with the food and everything was going smoothly until my wife... More

This is a classic Italian restaurant; the pasta is made in-house, and the food is just wonderful. I ate here twice, and wish I could have gone more often.

San Marco has a reputation for innovative Italian food and first class service. The restaurant is lovely, open dining room with lots of Windows and greenery. The menu places emphasis on Northern Traditional Italian food including gnocchi, pastas, strip steak all cooked to perfection. The wine list is extensive and nicely complements dinner.

We enjoyed a very nice lunch. With so many restaurants catering to the heavy tourist crowd along the this strip, it's not easy to get a nice meal. We walked just a little further and found San Marco. Large windows open into the restaurant and they were spotless. Once inside, the interior is open and relaxing. The menu is typical... More

My first visit was when they open this restaurant by 1958 I think, and it was terrific. Then I have been there many times, maybe once a year and It has been always very good.

We are frequent visitors of this restaurant for the last 30 years and we are still attracted to go again and again. Most of the waiters have worked there for decades; so they will know you if you get entrapped with it. Their strength is in pasta, although in fish and seafood they do wonderful plates as well as with... More

Really good italian and seafood, a bit pricey. They accept reservations and that atmosphere is very nice. Good that a restaurant with so many years have recovered since a bed period it had a few years ago.

We started with parma ham, real fine and thick (I hate those thin shavings), and what followed was just perfect. You could not get a better lasagna even in Italy. And all accompanied with a perfect Chilean Merlot was just made pour day. If you look for something european-italian, this is the place.
