“Southern Italian Cuisine in San Marcos”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

I teach at Texas State and go to Italian Garden about once every two weeks. It is reliable, often quite busy, and recently they have added to the decor and ambiance of the place. The portions are robust and dishes are usually excellent up and down the menu. The pizza is above average as well. However, it can be slow and is not a place for a quick meal.

“Average - Beware the "lightfare" is anything but light!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Average food, nice service, nice that you can bring your own wine. Have been here twice with family and have found the specials are the best thing to order. I have ordered the "lightfare" and it was anything but light, just ladden in butter and not tasty. Deserts were average as well, nothing really stands out here except good location and service.

“San Marcos location is better than......”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

I found the San Marcos restaurant to be run better and the food a better product than the Canyon Lake location where management disappointed me with their response to poor service and quality issues. It has been recently remodeled and hopefully is being run better now.

“Great Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We were at the university and just happen to stumble upon this little Italian restaurant. It is a quiet place with excellent service and food! From the outside it doesn't look like much, but you won't be disappointed! This is definitely a case of "not judging a book by its cover." The staff was very pleasant, and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was cozy! We will definitely go back, and I would recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian food!
