A great restaurant serving quality food and wine at sensible prices. The lobster linguine was fabulous. Great food well cooked and presented. Highly recommended. Will visit again.

“okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

went to san rufos this evening for a meal with my husband.The food was very good but the restaurant was small overcrowded and extremely noisy .people were going in for takeaway food and standing right next to where we were eating ,this was very off putting .If the layout was different im sure it would have been a much better experience than what it was .

“Disapointed.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

After reading the rave reviews on this site thought we would give it a try. Really disappointed. Food was nice but notthing exceptional. The waitresses ok but i have been to friendlier places , toilets were very small and tissues all over the floor , not the cleanest ive seen . Waited a very long time for meals. so all in all wont be eager to go again.

“Fantastic!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is by far the best Italian in Skegness offering geniually fresh and italian produce that is all cooked to order. There is a wide variety of choice and the portion size is good. This restaurant is ideal for anyone looking for great tasting food with a friendly atmosphere. The staff and service is fantastic and nothing is to much trouble. Will definatlley be visting again

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

I don't know why, but I never expect much from restaurants in Skegness. But San Rufo's proves I should set my standards higher - good food, innovatively presented and very pleasant staff. Service was a little slow when we were there, but they were very busy - which I guess is another good sign. Big potions, too. Of our table of nine, the only downside was my Pork Fillet - described as being cooked with brandy and a little cream, couldn't detect any cream in ther. Oh well. The prawn cocktail starter was one of the best I've had though.
Best bit, though - the owners original Abarth 500 parked outside.
