Outdated menu and building. Serious need of updating. When we walked in, the owners were sitting at the first table doing business, stared at us like we did not belong and then never said hello or welcomed us. I don’t care how old school Italian you are. YOU ARE IN THE HOSPITALITY BUSINESS. Meanwhile her, I am assuming the wife , phone starts ringing in the dining room and she isn’t there to answer, I guess it really didn’t matter as there were only two tables in there. The specials were basically the dinner menu. They have their following and good for them. Will never return. Many other Italian places to go.

Love this place. The food is always consistant, it's hard not to order the same thing each time. It's definitley the best Italian resturant in our neck of the woods.

Food was wonderful. The owner? An older lady who reeked of cigarettes tried to shame me into tipping more on the credit card slip. With $170.00
In 2 bottles of wine, and a 30% tip on the food, my party of CO-WORKERS was shocked. It really was a huge let down. I gave more money in cash, and resolved to never return. What a shame.
Overall, Po Le Cucina is close to here, and is better and more hospitable.

Nice place, our first time there. Wait staff could be more friendly and not rush our meal. Also, we made reservation there based on website not offering special menu for New Years Eve, but the actually did. Please keep your site up to date and relevant.

We enjoyed the ambience at Ristorante San Marco and one of our group enjoyed the food, but the other person's food was not very good at all. The deserts were dry, and the service was good at the start of the meal, but then we had to wait a long time to get attention at all from the wait staff. We had a gift certificate for this dinner, but I am not sure we would recommend it, nor would we return.

Food was very expensive and the waiter did not tell the cost of the Daily specials which turned out to be very expensive. Food was good, but not exceptional and not worth the money.

We come here all the time and I have written reviews before so not much more to say. Other than that the rack of lamb Saturday night was sublime. Perfectly cooked to a medium rare with a wonderful sauce that included currants. Whole Branzino cooked with a salt dome then filleted tableside was so moist and tender it almost made me abandon my lamb. Almost. My wife finished every bite. Always a wonderful night out.

Reliably good, individually prepared Italian food. The service is always attentive & excellent without being intrusive. The restaurant has a nice ambience- not too noisy, which can ruin a dining experience in other venues. We fine three regularly and always enjoy it.
