    This is my second time dining at San Marzano and it’s amazing. Best pasta of my life and I eat a lot of pasta. The staff is nice and the venue is smaller so it feels more homey and comfortable. I live in Virginia and I intend to eat here any time I visit. Can’t recommend enough!!

    I celebrated my birthday here with a close group of friends, it was such a good time! I wish they did leave pitchers of mimosas on the table so we could refill faster but overall it was so good

    The food was very nice! Especially considering the prices! The service was fine, bit a bit slow - also considering that we only have a 90 min seating. This noise was crazy, it was hard to have a conversation……

    Always excited to support a small business, but the service was so rushed and rude. We were excited to have a celebration dinner with the ease of pre fixe menu. They are so concerned with turning tables that service isn’t negligible, it is rushed. Plates taken from us before we were done. Reminded of how many minutes we had left at our table throughout our meal.

    Service was not great, the staff was not friendly. Staff seemed like they were laughing at us. The restaurant had a very bizarre smell inside too we had to sit outside. Only one who was kind of nice was our waiter but he was extremely shy.

    Servers are slow for bottomless, we were constantly asking the servers to fill our glasses and sometimes had to wait 5-10 minutes for another pour . Other than that, great food and a fun time!

    I will always love San Marzano because of the amazing pasta and super reasonable prices. Because of my love for this place, I chose to host my graduation dinner here with a large group, knowing that we would get the prix fixe menu and it was PERFECT. Where else in the city can you get bottomless sangria/beer/wine PLUS appetizers to share PLUS an entree each for $50 per person??? The price is more than reasonable and the food is absolutely delicious too. We also experienced amazing service from every server we encountered and they went out of their way to congratulate me and make it a special occasion. I will forever recommend San Marzano to anyone looking for a cute date night spot, a fun bottomless brunch, or a fantastic large group dinner. Thanks for everything!!!

    We were here for brunch with a group of 4. Our server was outstanding but 30 minutes before we even reached the end of our bottomless mimosas the hostess came over and said she need our seat for another reservation. Then during the process of paying we literally got kicked out by another hostess who gave us cups to put the remaining mimosas in so we would leave. This was after we purchased an additional bottle of champagne and several entrees. Very disappointed by the entire experience, other than our server who was a delight.

    Never written a review before but felt compelled to after receiving the worst service I’ve ever experienced. Our waitress, Mary, was combative, rude, and awful to be around. During our first interaction with her, we explained that one of our group was diabetic and would need slightly altered meal accommodations. She began to explain to us that she couldn’t do that because it wouldn’t make sense “logistically” for her. We tried to reason with her and even ask if we could speak to her manager, to which she said “he’s out so there’s nobody else to speak to.” To conclude our first interaction with her, she cut us off mid-sentence and walked away only to not see her again for 20 minutes to finally take our drink order. We had to find the manager ourselves and ask him personally, meanwhile, she came up and inserted herself in the conversation to tell the manager to not accommodate us. Thankfully, the manager overruled. Our group was ready to leave at that point if it weren’t for the hold placed on our credit card prior to the reservation. Overall restaurant was a great deal in terms of price, but they clearly prioritize cost cutting on hiring to make the prices work. If you get Mary as your waitress, ask for another employee or turn around entirely.

    We had a great meal at San Marzano. We liked the vibe there and felt comfortable when we arrived. The host gave us a call when we were running late and was kind enough to hold our reservation for 7 people. The server was outstanding! I don't know if he could tell that we were feeling frazzled (did I mention 7 people?) but he was super kind and attentive, gave us time to get our orders together, and dealt with a grumpy teen at our table with panache. I suppose you had no choice but to seat the teen with us, given that she was with us! :-) Thanks for helping us have a nice evening.

    The food is good, but the forced pre fix is annoying. It is significantly cheaper to just order a la carte. Brunch seems like a good deal, but the mimosas are 90% orange juice and no option to get more prosecco.

    Came with 10 people for bunch, and the host was super nice and kept us in the loop for when our table was going to be ready. Server was also very nice even though she definitely seemed very busy but that really didn’t change our experience. We sat in the dining shed outside and it was HOT with the heater on so we would Keep it on for a few minutes then turn it off. We all really liked our food most of us seemed to get pasta instead of the brunch items. Would definitely recommend and will probably be coming back in the future!

    It felt like a scam- when I saw it online it looked like it was a bit more upscale and when I saw they had a valentines event I thought it’d be nice. We get there and it’s v e r y casual and looks like an after work hangout spot, not a valentines venue. Then everyone was super confused on the pre-fix menus and what was or wasn’t available. In the end the 69$ per person prefix was absolutely not worth it, value or experience wise and then because we didn’t order off regular menu, we had a 30$ auto gratuity added to the check.it’s the same menu, legitimately only one one menu was presented the entire time. I would have tipped as the waiter was alone and inexperienced, but 30$ was too much. I personally will never be going back there, especially when the manager can see it going badly and can’t be bothered to check in with any tables. If we had gone and not said anything about Valentine’s Day I would not have spent the additional 80$( because there was no special menu. it was a regular menu, and we only ordered 80$ worth of food total.) and walking out after paying 177 knowing that nearly half of the check was bs upcharges definitely ruined my valentines. Really should have just gone to BWW or Applebees at least there would have been a heart decoration on the property. Legit told everyone I knew about how excited I was for this date bc of how it looked online and it was supposed to be an ‘experience’. Definitely went back and told everyone that knew I was going to not go back for any occasions.

    THE best pasta deal in NYC. It gets pretty crowded and can get loud but it’s all worth it for this meal. And don’t skip dessert! The ricotta nutella calzone is to die for.

    Great for a big group. You get to pick 3 app options and they bring you a few plates of each thing to share! I was under the impression that it would just be 1 of each.

    Good value for the prix fixe but not great if you have a friend who doesn’t drink because everyone at the table has to do the same. Our server was very confusing and originally explained that our friend could do non prix fixe then came back and said again that we had to do the prix fixe. She also kept confusing our drink orders. Apps were great, probably best part of the meal, and flavors of pasta were nice but overly salty (some were downright inedible).
