    We came to San Marino for a gathering of family who hadn't seen each other in a long time. Our party of 7 ended up arriving at different times, but we were sat promptly with no issues. We elected to order from the Party Menu (a prix fixe deal), which had something for everyone and was very affordable. Service was excellent. As the restaurant filled up, it became harder to hear everyone, but overall, we had a great experience!

    The menu is very diverse, offering many choices. We had the Lobster Ravioli, Chicken&Sausage Special & Chicken Parm over Angel Hair Pasta. All were prepared to perfection. You can taste the freshest of the ingredients, and the pasta is superb. The service was stellar. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. They offered many homemade desserts, as well as a complimentary aperitif. We truly enjoyed our relaxed, delicious dining experience at San marino Soho. Highly Recommend!

    This place was awesome! The food was great and the service was outstanding. I went there with my coworkers for our summer outing and it was great. A real gem! The staff made special appetizers for us so we could all sample a little bit. The specials were great! I had a chicken and sausage special that I will definitely be going back for. If you are in the mood for great food and awesome service definitely go here.

    For my 30th birthday, we decided to have dinner at San Marino, as were looking for a place that could seat all 8 of us comfortably, where we could hear eachother speak but be loud, with a great fixed dinner menu option and reasonably priced good wine... When I contacted the restaurant, they immediately offered us a private dinning room, which was wonderful! We opted for the more expensive fixed dinner menu at about 33 per person, which was simply amazing! The food was fantastic with very generous portions. Both the mushroom ravioli and the snapper were divine! The service was great, they were on top of everything! We had a wonderful time! I would definately recommend San Marino for groups, and for their great food and wonderful service!

    We had been working on our storage unit and decided to go for dinner nearby. I read the reviews and decided to take a chance. What a discovery! We were welcomed in and had our choice of seating. We chose to eat inside and they steered us to a cozy nook. We ordered salads to start and I had the chicken and sausage special in wine sauce and my husband had the pork platter. Both dishes were superb! The waiter was very attentive and at the close of the meal offered us some tastes of their homemade digestifs. The coffee and sambucca is not to be missed! It was a chance opportunity and we will definitely be back. A wonderful hidden place near the train.

    after going to city Winery to see shows a few times and struggling through their overpriced, underportioned, crowded, soewhat tasteless fare, I decided to branch out and find someplace nice close by before seeing Jill Sobule. Looked up San Marino as the closest pace on Open Table (right around the corner) and was delighted with the entire experience. Great food (!), attentive staff, clean/classy and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back!!

    Tried to make reservations at several "hip" SoHo places before ending up at San Marino. It was a very pleasant surprise. We arrived after a Smooth Jazz cruise at Pier 40 at about 9. No crowd. In fact, we were the only people in the place. Not promising. Well, starting with the Parmigiana Regianna placed on the table along with bread and olives, everything was wonderful, including the wine. I hope others in the neighborhood give it a shot. The lobster ravioli special and red snapper were outstanding and Tony, our server, was a delight. Go. You won't be sorry.

    Tucked away next to a hotel is this cool restaurant in an unexpected commercial type location just off main entrance roadway to the Holland Tunnel. Great place to have a drink and dine while you watch the heavy tunnel traffic subside and then know its safe to leave without a major delay to go back home to Jersey. Best of all the food is great, the martinis generous and the owner/host, Sammy Elio, charming and a delight. With cooperating traffic conditions, will be back soon.

    We were late for our reservation and, because of that, rushing to make a 7 p.m. performance. The staff could not have been more understanding and accommodating. Even with all the rush, the food was simply delicious and the atmosphere calming. I definitely want to return when I have the time to really enjoy it!

    I had dinner with my family at this gem of a restaurant last week and wanted to share our awesome experience. I had never heard of San Marino before but found it on Open Table and saw some great reviews so we took a chance. We're so glad we did. It was pouring when we arrived and Sammy the restaurant manager allowed us to park right outside the restaurant (entrance to the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel) while we had dinner. We were truly amazed at the level of customer service we received. All the food was incredibly good and the dessert was excellent. Plus the waiters were friendly, considerate and attentive. They also gave us complimentary digestifs including sambuca and grappa. And we loved watching the rain through the beautiful skylight

    We were looking for a nice place for Mother's Day around SOHO I read the reviews and Menu looked varied and prices reasonable. We had 3:30 reservations and were seated in the empty restaurant (Uh Oh, maybe not a good sign?) But everything turned out much better than expected - from the great service by our waiter Tony to the very good food. Appetizers were very tasty. We all had a different entrees and everyone was very pleased with their choices. the Saltimbocca Alla Romana was delicious (not very salty as this dish tends to be elsewhere). Wife loved the red snapper I also tasted the Pollo Mt. Etna which had a little kick to it and was excellent. We were all treated to a homemade after dinner drink which is a nice touch.

    Were going to a concert at City Winery so decided to try this since it is so close. Unfortunately, there was painting and construction going on in the restaurant. They thought it would be fine to serve us with dust swirling and paint fumes we did not so went elsewhere. Maybe the food is good, but the atmosphere didn't even let us try it.

    San Marino offers well prepared Italian dishes at reasonable prices. I had a whole fish, orato, simply prepared with olive oil and lemon that was served pipping hot, yet still very moist. My companion had a whole wheat pasta prepared with a medley of vegetables. I began with a well executed Cesar salad and my companion had a house salad that was attractively presented. Even before we ordered the waiter brought a dish of olives and a basket of 3 kinds of bread. At the conclusion of the meal, though we passed on dessert, the waiter offered a complimentary grappa that had been steeped with apricot. It was a nice touch to end the meal. Service is friendly but not intrusive, so it is a good place for conversation.

    My boyfriend and I had the grilled calamari- we're fried calamari fans, but this was good considering what it is. We both has the NY strip steak for our entre. It was absolutely phenomenal. I ate it well done and my bf at if medium-well, both were delicious. For dessert we had chocolate mouse cake and cheesecake. Both were very yummy. We went for valentines day. The ambiance was dimly lit, quiet, and very romantic. The staff was extremely attentive. This was an excellent experience overall. My only criticism was that the menu felt a bit sparse- this was why i rated them very good as opposed to outstanding. Feel free to check it out for yourselves on their website.

    My family and I are in town for the weekend.We decided to give San Marino a try. Growing up in an Italian household I am rarely impressed with Italian restaurants. But I was pleasantly surprised! We had the grilled calamari and eggplant rollatini for appetizers they were delicious. Then we split a large pizza with argula and prosuitto, they said it would serve 2-3 but it could easily feed 4. The pizza was very good! You could tell all of the ingredients were very fresh, especially the argula. The owner checked in with us all night and even gave us a free round of port wine! We will be returning for the homemade Tiramisu tonight, we were too stuffed last night

    There are very few decent places to eat before you catch a show at the City Winery. (Don't eat there) Housed in a Sheraton Hotel, this is a decent traditional Italian place, with a very eager, friendly staff. Place is a little cramped and the phony electric fireplace is quite cheesy. Rest rooms felt like I had to travel to another land just to wash my hands. Didn't like that. But the food was good and fresh. Nice specials the night we dined. Will definitely return when I'm in the area.

    The food is good, the service is good. But the place is so... I don't even know what to call it... It's not a restaurant you CHOOSE to go to. My friend was staying at the hotel next door and we needed a place to eat that was still serving food at 10:45pm. The food was actually pretty good and the waiter was nice. But I can't say I'll recommend for anyone to go there...

    I came to San Marino Soho on 11/1/2013, the restaurant was tacky and the decor was tasteless. We ordered the antipasti and some of the ingredients tasted as though they were straight out of a can. The pasta was nothing special and the chicken mass ala was a fiasco. The service was decent. The restaurant needs to up it up to meet the standards that other reviewers have set on open table. I am not planning on coning back to this restaurant. FYI this restaurant is inside of the Sheraton hotel which is not mentioned anywhere.

    Chosen for the location to the Greene Space, wait staff helpful; food merely okay, especially the one veal dish in a white sauce. While the sauce had some minimal flavor, it was too white and heavy to be veal sauce. As for the veal, it was cooked inconsequentially. However, the price is right.

I was the only guest on the restaurant and this cause me a little impression at the beginning. However, has very good service. The block where the restaurant is located not looks too friendly, because there are constructions all over the street.
