Good food, nice wine list, and good service. We found it a bit loud for normal conversation, but we were surrounded by people celebrating birthdays which was kind of nice. It was nice to see a busy spot that has clearly found a niche in the southern Niagara region.

We also never feel rushed. Now the food is just as good. Always hot and presented well. Always a joy to eat here. In the summer... More

Firstly, let's say that the fare was very good. It as fun to drink Birra Moretti. My veal parm was nicely done, as was the Marco Polo Marsala ordered by my partner - both were successful Italian comfort foods with flair. We also enjoyed the Chocolate Seduction Cake for desert. My rant, however, concerns the service. I seem to recall... More

My husband and I had gone to this restaurant about 10 years ago and then never returned. I am not sure why, but I returned today for lunch with a friend and will definitely be going back with my husband. The restaurant is a comfortable size with a small parking lot in back and parking on the street. It has... More

Each year my generation of cousins gather at San Marco for our Cousin's Reunion the last weekend in February and the Veal Parmesan is the charmer of the evening. As we catch up on each family comings and goings, we savour the delicious flavours and tenderness of our meal. Attentive service is welcome from our arrival greetings, through the meal... More

Went for date night with my husband. It's just a small rest. But so quaint. Our server was fantastic sorry we didn't get her name. The food is very rich in flavour. And freshly prepared. Their pastas are delicious. They also do different specials depending on what foods are available in season. (Beet salad is delicious) A little pricey but... More

We were there tonight for a birthday celebration. All 6 of us liked our food. Yes, depending on what you order there is a minimum 20 minute wait (it states that on certain menu items) all the food was brought out hot and fresh. The only negatives were the hot water for tea is no where hot enough, the crab... More

I've lived in Niagara for 16 years now and not ever been to this restaurant until now - how can this be? I would argue this to be the very best food in all of Niagara with amazing service to boot. An intimate and inviting atmosphere makes for a perfect place for romantic dinners.
