    One of my favorite places in New York to get pasta at a great price! My all-time favorite is the Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragu. It was my first time making a reservation for a big group which turned out to be a good deal, highly recommend it.

    This is a great spot for bottemless brunch! We had outdoor seating which wasn't the best idea in the heat, so I wish there had been some fans but other than that it was comfortable. Our server was really nice and was fairly quick with refills on our drinks! The food was yummy and definitely seemed worth the price.

    Came here for a friends birthday brunch, and it was perfect! The food, the service, the mimosas, everything was great. The online reservation system was nice for securing a table, but the payment made on the website doesn’t matter as you still have to pay when you’re done dining. That’s all though, still a great time!

    Well when I went to check in they told me they didn’t have my OpenTable reservation. They forgot to turn off taking reservations they told me on OpenTable. So we waited all 9 of us outside. Food was salty and waitress kept forgetting items we ordered or would just disappear. Not a great way to show my clients a good time!

    The food was great, but we did the fixed bottomless mimosa menu and the wait staff was very strict on how quickly we could drink our mimosas and would not fill up our glasses if she saw us drinking our drinks too quickly. We weren’t getting drunk, being loud, or making a scene, but yet the wait staff made us feel like we were doing something wrong for drinking mimosas at a bottomless mimosa brunch. It’s probably the best deal price-wise with all of the food included (which was very good food), but it feels like you get more value at with a bottomless mimosa deal at a restaurant that might be more expensive but isn’t stingy with their mimosas.

    I’ve been to San Marzano previously with smaller groups and food and drinks were always amazing. This time I did the prix fixe option (which was a great deal, only $48) with a group of 14 and there was more than enough food and drinks for everyone. We all left very full and happy:)

    Great food, fun ambiance, very attentive server. The only point of personal preference is the portions for the prix fixe menu were quite small. Although the food was delicious, we found ourselves hungry shortly after leaving which was disappointing. All in all a fun time!

    We had a great time at San Marzano. The only reason I give 4/5 stars was that when making the reservation, I had called back to ensure that we would be seated inside. The woman said she made a note and all will be good. Fast forward to when we arrive, the host proceeds to bring us outside. I very politely mentioned that I had called many days prior to ensure we were seated inside. He said there was no note on the reservation list. This was quite annoying as it was chilly and raining outside. The host ran around and made many changes to make sure that we had the seat inside we were promised! Thank you to that host! But annoying at the woman who didn’t write it down in the first place. All in all it was a great night!

    San Marzano’s food was great! It has not been the best italian food I ever had but definitely very decent and great for the price! I had a great times with my friends for my birthday dinner. The only things were that 1. It didn’t felt like they were ready for our reservation and we had to wait a few minutes for them to get our table ready. 2. It was very packed for a Wednesday which is a good sign but it was extremely loud with everybody talking and we had to yell to hear each other.

    I had reservations for last Sunday and though it was the Super Bowl I was still able to reserve a table, just to arrive and find out they had the restaurant closed for the game. I would have app if someone from the restaurant would have contacted me to let me know my reservation would actually be canceled or that me being able to book a table on Open Table was actually a mistake. I love San Marzano but this was particularly an unfortunate event.

    The food and service was amazing compared to price point. Highly recommend for birthdays or any other party, but it could be quite busy for a casual brunch / dinner. It snowed a bit on our table so I would ask for inside dining!

    Made 6:00 reservations in advance, our table was right by the door on a cold night, made for a very uncomfortable dining experience. Service was rushed, food was good but nothing special, maybe I would of enjoyed the food more if I didn’t feel rushed and was freezing. The prefix dinner for reservations for over 4 people was a decent deal and had no issues with that.

    We had a reservation this past Saturday for a birthday, and upon arriving, we were seated right next to the door on a freezing evening. The door was kept open repeatedly - the hostesses did nothing to ensure that patrons waited outside or kept the door closed. As a result, our group was freezing and we asked to be moved, but we were repeatedly told, “sorry, but all of those other groups and tables have reservations” - even though we had a reservation, too. The two guests sitting with their backs to the entryway were also repeatedly bumped by servers and other guests, but when we tried to bring the issue up to hostesses, we were repeatedly brushed off. To top it off, on this evening in particular, an unruly, larger male customer had to be escorted / wrangled out of the restaurant by another larger male server. While this isn’t likely an ordinary occurrence, the server and unruly customer violently bumped into one of our friends at the table and almost knocked him out of his chair. No one apologized or acknowledged the incident. By the time we had finished our food, we still had about an hour left on our unlimited drinks (we did the prix fixe menu) - but our group wanted to just pay our checks and get out as soon as possible. This was a disappointing experience and San Marzano used to be one of my go-to recs, especially for groups. I will think very carefully before ever recommending it again.

    Our waitress was extremely disrespectful and very uninterested while serving us. We can understand that we are a big party which comes with a level of difficulty however it was not necessary to be spoken to the way that we were. Especially since we were there to celebrate a friends birthday however the experience was deterred by the service we were given.

    We asked to move to another table closer to the wall that was not as noisy. The host told us that we could not move to that table as they were going to separate it into two parties (two table were pushed together to seat four people and would be separated for couples seating). We watched as a group of three people sat at the table after they told us we could not move there. They did not separate the table. I was unhappy to sit in the middle of the restaurant and would have preferred that seating as it is less busy and quieter.
