Phenomenal food. If they don't have an item on the menu they will make it for you if it is within their ability. Would go back there almost every day for dinner

Our 15th Wedding Anniversary
We had an excellent meal to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We usually travel to center city for a special dinner, but this year we needed to stay close to home because we had plans for early the next morning. I pass this restaurant on my way to work and thought it looked like a very nice place. We decided to try it and we were not disappointed! The food was amazing and the service was top knotch! We had a lovely evening and we will definitely put Ristorante San Marco on our list of favorite restaurants! And it's such a bonus that it's only fifteen minutes from home!

Authentic Italian Food
Food was wonderful but the waite staff was rude. I don't like when a waiter stands over you while you eat.

Quiet Lunch spot
This was a wonderful find for a quiet, intimate and incredibly delicious lunch! I highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking for a delicious Italian experience!

The food here is amazing. This place always exceeds my expectations. The lobster and asparagus appetizer special was absolutely delicious! My lobster ravioli and my husband's veal were superb! The qualify of food here is comparable to any of the top notch restaurants in Philly or New York. This is a true neighborhood gem!

expensive for food that was not wonderful--- good, but not for that price
6/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is as good Italian food I find in NYC. This was a surprise to me given the prior experiences I have had traveling. The staff were warm, friendly and accommodating and the service was good.
6/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We did enjoy both the food and the experience. However, with so many good Italian choices around, I see two reasons to choose San Marco. One is the outstanding service. The entire staff is very attentive. The second is that it is just a nicely kept place inside and out. The only issue is that unless I am really in the mood for both of those things, the food isn't a cut above. I literally have zero complaints about the food, but I can get that quality at a number of spots where the appetizers are half the price and the entrees about $10 less. Add in that I can bring my own bottle at other local spots, I know I will hit those more often. If San Marco decides to adjust their prices down a bit, I'd be more likely to become a frequent diner.

My husband calls San Marco
My husband calls San Marco a "real restaurant".The dining rooms are decorated in a lovely understated style,the bar has an elegant piano,service is very polished.But it is the FOOD that takes us back so often.Caesar salad was crisp tender, with the perfect amount of tasty dressing and a generous serving of the requested anchovies Portobello mushroom appetizer never fails to please.I have tried and failed to duplicate how they grill the mushrooms on dry heat. Very different from the way portobellos usually taste - delicious!Ravioli in tomato concasse was delicate but rich, and very satisfying.Osso bucco was perfectly done, fall-off-the-bone tender,delicious risotto and veggies.Service is 3 stars as bread took painfully long to arrive.
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my new favorite Italian spot for an excellent dinner!
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
San Marco is a excellent restaurant that delivers in all categories.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
There regular menu and specials are always consistent. I've been a regular customer now for a few years. My family looks forward when I say we'll go to San Marco! Great food; good service; food temperature, flavors, speed of service is just right, at least for my family and me.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, superb service
I recently took a client here for lunch and it was a wonderful experience. From the pristine white linen tablecloths to the exquisitely prepared food.... .it was a 10! The salt baked bronzino was moist and succulent and I definately will return for that. I live in the city and this restaurant can stand up to the best in center city. Service was on point and delightful!

Fine Dining at its Finest
Here is a wonderful restaurant with great food served by a professional staff in a warm setting that eptomises the essence of fine dining. Don't expect to get away cheaply but it is worth every penny.

We dine frequently at San
We dine frequently at San Marco. Wish the service was a little less obtrusive - or rushed - can never tell, but the food takes us back.Delicious special spinach salad; Stuffed fried zucchini blossoms, tasty and filling for this vegetarian; Very generous Osso Buco with risotto and veggies pleased my husband - fork tender and delicious. My mezzaluna stuffed ravioli makes me wish I could make the tomato concasse at home - piquant and smooth. Do wish there was a better selection of wines by the glass, especially a blend or two.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were completely satisfied with our dining experience at San Marco. Every worked out to perfection. We are planning to eat there again soon.

Delicious Italian Fare
Always have a great time dining here: enjoyed the lobster salad and sun dried tomato pasta special with scallops and both were terrific. Enjoyed the complimentary biscotti and limoncello as well. Great service as usual!

San Marco was quiet because
San Marco was quiet because we dined on Friday - on Saturday it is moderate.While their by-the-bottle wine list is notable, they could improve their by-the-glass selections. My husband's calamari appetizer was disappointing in texture;he sent it back for a crisping and it was much better. He loved his veal dish - they did a special one just forhim with spinach and mozarella. I,being vegetarian, had them hold the prosciutto on the special roasted fig appetizer,and it was wonderful.Their pasta entree with pomodoro sauce was perfect for me. One of our favorite places!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am a semi-frequent guest and am never disappointed. Amazing food.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lunch was wonderful but pricey. The grilled calamari app was a big hit. The pappardelle with mushrooms and the Chicken San Marco were delicious. For a special occasion, this is the place. It's popularity can be seen by a packed parking lot every night it is open.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone is focused on you
Everyone is focused on you having as fine an experience as they can provide. It's impossible to single out any particular dish - the food is uniformly excellent. This is definitely the best Italian restaurant in the area.

Try lunch here!
We have dinner at San Marco a lot and decided to do lunch.Wonderful! The 2 of us shared 4 appetizer specials;no entree was even necessary.San Marco's own tomatoes with a large piece of perfectly ripe avocado and mozzarella drizzled with olive oil was perfect. The clams casino were tender and tasty. Crab claws with a dipping sauce were an unusual treat. And the langostines. Oh my. Large tender and perfectly grilled. What a special treat this lunch was!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a favorite. I have never been disappointed with the service or the wonderful special. The Dover sole and Branzino so good! The osso buco devine. It is fine dinning close to home.
It’s wonderful not having to navigate Route 76, find and pay for a parking spot.

Food was good to extremely
Food was good to extremely good. Arugula salad, fried calamari, and salt-crusted branzini were outstanding. Refreshing and charming to have intelligent staff with heavy Italian accents that complete the mood for the intended feel of the place - Italian, higher-end dining.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing. Selection to fit everyone's taste. The wine matching was top notch. Service was like watching a broadway play. A well trained staff that was there to please. We will return.

This restaurant is special!
This restaurant is special! The food, wine, service, ambience are to be experienced. We have dined at San Marco several times and are never disappointed. This time following dinner, I had the rare opportunity to entertain my wife and fellow patrons by singing along with the piano man. The owner was very cordial and we all had a wonderful evening. This is a must go!!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very comfortable setting.
Very comfortable setting. Upscale but not over the top. The service was slow to get started but attentive throughout the meal. The food was wonderful with 2 of us ordering fish dishes that were done perfectly! There was no rush for a next seating and were treated very well by all the staff. Definitely a recommended spot to try. We will be back when we are in the area to experience new meals.

Reasonable and consistent
We've been to San Marco a couple of times and have found that is very consistent. The food is very good with smooth service. Prices are reasonable although specials trend upwards. Look for discount coupons. Even without the coupons it's really worth it. As good if not better than several similar spots in the area.

Oh my God, the food is truly to die for. Reminiscence of food we enjoyed so much in Europe.

Ciao San Marco
Once again, San Marco has lived up to our expectations. We took friends there after braging about the fine food and service and we were not dissappointed. WE have a wonderful meal and a great time.

I went with a friend, who is very critical. Even he was impressed with the excellent food.

1st time there and it was great. A bit pricey but nice for a special night out.

Always a hit
We dined frequently at San Marco when we lived in Lower Gwynedd, and now happily travel the 40 minutes to enjoy this great food. Husband had the delicious and tender clams casino, the generous and perfectly dressed Caesar, and Veal Picante -this is not on the menu and was not a special, but they were happy to make it for him. He says it was wonderful. I, the vegetarian, had their portabello mushroom salad, generous portion, crisp tender with a lovely light balsamic dressing. Their penne with their house red sauce is delicious - perfect al dente pasta, with a very tasty sauce. We will be back again very soon.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Polished service and exceptional Italian food in the suburbs. Few restaurants can match the quality of the food.

Ristorante San Marco is definitely
Ristorante San Marco is definitely among the best restaurants in the area (I've been to too many).
Excellent food, friendly and helpful staff and a notable wine list. My family completely agreed on that. Only thing we did not like was the table we were sitting at; seems it was uneven and was wobbling all the time. I will return to this great ristorante.

Easy reservation at the last minute and it was a great night out. Food was delicious, fun atmosphere, busy and a bit loud!

My family has been dining
My family has been dining at San Marco since it opened . We fell in love with the best Mediterranean Bronzino prepared tableside, & our daughter would eat nothing but their fabulous Bolognese. The service is top notch and there is always live piano music. There was a recent chef change and we were wondering how the food would taste but no need for concern. The new chef has been a staple in the kitchen and it shows. Not only is the food fabulous as always, there is a special nuance that gourmands would appreciate. I had the langostinos as an appetizer-the best I've ever had! Grilled but moist & flavorful. I had the bolognese with homemade fettucine as a main course - to die for. My husband had pillow soft gnocchi w/jumbo lump crab-loved it!

My daughter and I enjoyed a lovely lunch at Ristorante San Marco! I drove over an hour to eat there, and it was worth every minute of my time! The ambiance of the room is inviting, warm and welcoming.
Our food was very good, especially the chicken breast done with a white wine. The Cappuccino was perfect, and we hope to meet there again soon for another taste of San Marco!!! Thank you.

I have never gone here and not eaten anything I didn't like. The apps are out of this world! The salads are to die for! All the entrees are prepared perfectly! I am not a dessert person but I alway have to get the Creme Brulee! The Servers are very attentive! The Owners are awesome! Love this place!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have dined at San Marco many times over the years, but this is the first using "Open Table." The food is delicious, the service attentive. It was a delightful evening.

Great meal and nice atmosphere
My wife and I enjoyed the food immensely. She had the Bronzino which was delicious & deboned table-side. I had Veal medallions which were also excellent. The service was good, atmosphere is nice, not stuffy but refined. The piano bar provided nice background music.
