My husband and I stopped in on a Saturday night without a reservation and the host seated us right away at the last available table. We were very lucky at 6:30 p.m. They were waiting in line when we finished. The food was absolutely excellent and fairly priced. Those two things don't always go together.

Visited on a Thursday evening, the only available tables without a reservation were outdoors, normally ok but it was breezy and only about 50 degrees. At first we were told there were no openings,then the man at the door, whom we later found out was the owner, seated us. Very small but nice atmosphere. The homemade pasta is to die... More

We were there 3 years ago to get a "taste" of Italian before our trip to Venice across the sea. Returning, it was a great all-'round experience: food quality and preparation, service and staff all top notch. That's why we came back.

Venice's main street is packed with many restaurants. Some of these restaurants offer sidewalk dining tables and it's really nice to eat outside on a nice day taking in the people and activities going on around you. (The only thing I don't like about the above scenario is the presence of the many dogs on the sidewalk. Yes, they are... More

We have eaten at San Marco numerous times and consistently return. Delicious, authentic southern Italian food beautifully prepared served by very gracious and friendly people. Everything, pasta, seafood and meats, are fresh and well prepared. As an Italian myself I can honestly say it doesn't get any better than this.

My family has been here several times, but I went for the first time this NYE. Although the food was delicious, the portions were SMALL and the price tag LARGE, especially because it was NYE. My family said the portions are always that size and I'm not a fan of small portions for big prices, especially pasta which is the... More

We stopped in for lunch and had the most spectacular meal. Pasta was home made and authentic. The salads and soups were delicious and the service was impeccable. I was tempted to just eat here for all of our meals but as visitors we thought we should try others. This one was still our favorite. I would highly recommend this... More
