This was our first visit to San Marco and we had a magic meal for two! The atmosphere was excellent and despite being a hot evening, the temperature inside wasn't too bad. They have a wide menu to choose from and selection of good wines. We will be going again!!

It was in a cream cheese sauce that was very sickly. But the tortellinis where obviously bought in as they where dry and... More

When we arrived the restaurant seemed busy. The service was great and there was always someone on hand to either take our order, refill our drinks or clear our plates. The food is medium priced. We opted for Tomato Garlic Bread and Spare Ribs to start. Both very good and authentic. The Penne Arribiata was great too. They cater for... More

One of the worst restaurants I have ever visited. We visited on a quiet week night and ordered the 2 course deal at £10.95 each. Upon arriving we waited for a table although there were many free. We then waited a while to order our meals. When the starters arrived my partner had ordered the ribs- the presentation reflected the... More
