I have visited no restaurant in Delft more often than San Marco. It is a good place for large groups of friends to gather.

San Marco serves quite a few different dishes but I will restrict my review to pizza since I have never tried their pastas.

San Marco's pizzas are tasty and good value for money. It's not the best pizza in this part of the country (The Hague, Delft, Rotterdam) - I would bestow that honour to VIP in The Hague. But given the hassle of getting to VIP from Delft (if you don't have a car), I am quite happy to go to San Marco.

The staff are generally friendly and helpful. Service can be a bit slow when the restaurant is full, so I don't recommend going there at peak times if you are in a hurry.

They also deliver and delivery seems to be relatively snappy. I got a pizza within 40 minutes of ordering on a Friday evening.

Stayed in Delft for a few weeks in 2011, and frequented this little Italian restaurant. Family run, the food was of superb qaulity every time. My favourite is the Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino.

Went here during a business trip as a group of 4. The food is of good quality and seems freshly prepared.

However I was very unimpressed with the attitude of the staff and the service. Two of the group ordered starters. One of these turned up at the same time as the mains, the other did not arrive at all. An order for further drinks did not arrive either and in the end I had to approach the bar and reorder.

When it was time to pay/leave, the staff were most disinterested and made us feel unwelcome. No eye contact, no smiles, little thanks.

Very stange.

I have eaten at San Marco's many times over the last four years and find their food consistently good. The variety of pizza toppings is very good and the quality of the food is great.

The hidden gem in this restaurant is the courtyard in the back of the restaurant and when the weather is nice, you can sit out there. Otherwise the restaurant has a charm of old dark wooden beams and flooring giving it a feeling of the 1800's.

There is only one option for beer, and it is on tap. There is a small selection of wine.

The service is just "OK", but the food compensates for the short comings of the customer service.

It is always very busy and the noise level in the restaurant is surprisingly not bad for such close quarters.

It is always a must when I come to Delft.

Nice friendly Italian-style restaurant a bit off the beaten path in Delft (but everything in Delft is easily walkable). The food is not Italian. It is Italian-style and reminds me of an Italian restaurant in an American suburb. A bit more authentic than Pizza Hut, but not much more than that.
Nevertheless, it's a thoroughly nice place to grab a quick meal and very reasonably priced (for the Netherlands). I was pleasantly surpised that my waiter spoke Italian. Too bad the food was less authentic than the waiter!
