Excellent as always. Veal Marsala was cooked perfectly as was the linguini a la vongole. San Marco has become one of Venice’s premiere Italian restaurants. Outdoor seating made it a perfect evening! And they take reservations online with Open Table. Very convenient.

San Marcos in Venice downtown is STILL doing the Savor Sarasota event. Unbelievable lunch there today. You get your choice of wine (Red or White) choice of two soups or two salads. Choice of five different entrees and choice of Tiramisu or Cannoli. This is no
ordinary place but rather a fine dining experience where all pasta and bread is made daily and all for $16. There were four of us and I took a couple of pics just to show off ! They are covid compliant and the nicest people that you would ever want to meet.

Seating was outside on sidewalk. Many people walking by next to our table many without masks. Food was ok, prices were high and portions were small. Caesar salad was nothing but lettuce with very little dressing.

Have been here twice in one week ! Have tried only the lunch Savor Sarasota menu so far and its fabulous! Service Quick and attentive. Tried the flounder piccata and chicken marsala. Only thing I would change is to request no added salt. Maybe if the chef rinsed the capers prior to putting them in the piccata sauce The sauce wouldn’t taste so salty. Lovely selection of fresh vegetables done just right served with these entrees. Appetizer salad was tasty as was the tiramisu. Can’t wait to try dinner at San Marco! Enjoy

We were five girlfriends having lunch. We tend to all talk and get excited about getting together. We were not rushed and given plenty of time to enjoy our wonderful food and still have time to visit. Everyone enjoyed their pasta. We understand it is made in house. That's what gave it that extra. It was unanimous that the Tiramisu was the favorite ending.

I took my daughter to celebrate her last day of 11th grade. She is a picky eater. We shared the San March Chicken and the Ravioli. She loved both dishes. Excellent. The focaccia was so good. Our waitress was wonderful. We will be back.

This continues to be a favorite for us in Venice. Definitely in our top 2! I can’t spell most of the dishes, so won’t try, but the dishes are ALWAYS freshly prepared and served hot. They do not have a bar, but the beer and wine selection is more than adequate. Love eating inside or out and Open Table makes reservations easy.

Food was good, service was acceptable for the anticipated crowd but we found it noisy and the tables were too closely set. We were surprised at the crowded situation and the noise since we ate there on a Sunday at 6:00 PM . We’ll try it again,hopefully at a less crowded time.

Excellent food and service. The restaurant was so loud that it was painful to enjoy our time there. Looks like they fit tables on every Soave inch of space. I will certainly return but would only be seated outside in the future.

Our waiter knocked over a glass of water as our meal was being served resulting in the table setting having to be changed. Waiter apologized and said he would bring each of us ( (4) a comp glass of wine for the inconvenience.
Checking the bill I was charged for the 4 glasses of wine.
I did not want to point it out at as our waiter was busy.
I mention since a review is available
