Ristorante San Marco Ratings and Reviews
This was my first time visiting San Marco. Everything was amazing. I had the pasta special with calms and crab in a white wine sauce. My husband had the fettuccine bolognese. It was the best Italian meal we have had in a long time. The wait staff was very attentive. Don't forget to leave room for dessert. I would highly recommend Ristorante San Marco. I look forward to visiting again soon.
Ordered the linguine pescatore - the shrimp, clams and scallops were nicely prepared but the mussels were putrid. It wouldn't have bothered me as much if the dish wasn't littered with them. They smelled and tasted bad. I think if the mussels aren't running good that night, they should sub in extra of the other shellfish or add calamari.
San Marco served a very good lunch is a very nice setting. Tables had white tablecloths and the service was impeccable. The the Mezzaluna pasta was very good and the Ravioli di Aragosta was excellent with a delicious rose sauce topped with a scallop, shrimp, and piece of lobster. We are interested in returning to try the dinner menu, dessert and espresso.
The food is exceptional and it is so nice to go to a place that doesn't rush you through your meal. You can enjoy the live piano music through a leisurely meal that is heaven to your taste buds! This family owned restaurant is a local gem and we are so fortunate to have a restaurant this good so close by! Also, their Monday and Tuesday BYOB nights are wonderful as well!
San Marco is one of my favorites. Owner (Leo), bartender (Chris) and server (Luis) made our visit fantastic. Lobster avocado salad and clams casino as apps at the bar were scrumptious. As always-the kitchen is accommodating when my father (the birthday boy) craved veal parmigiana and it wasn't on the menu. I had amazing lobster stuffed black ravioli (homemade) topped with lobster, scallops and shrimp in a brandied cream sauce. I'm salivating right now just recounting it. Be sure to stop in the cozy piano bar after 6pm for those stellar drinks-Chris is a master. Go-you won't be disappointed.
There were 4 of us for dinner. We ordered 2 of the veal chop special . When it arrives it looked wounderful but when you ate it the meat was really tuff. The flavor was great but I left most of it. My friend ordered the lamb chops with mint jelly and she said it was great! Very flavorful!
They were kind enough to make veal parmigiano even if it wasn't on the menu for a persnickety diner.
The salt encrusted branzino was amazing.
They made Fettuccine Alfredo on the spot and damn if it wasn't in the top 3 Fettuccine Alfredo I've ever had.
The desserts were a bit lacking, the creme brûlée was too thick and lacking in vanilla. The almond based dessert I had was too dry.
Skip dessert and have a superb Italian meal.
Always welcoming and always wonderful. My personal favorite restaurant in all the Philadelphia area. The easy to find and easily accessible restaurant has plenty free parking and a warm inviting atmosphere. The staff is attentive but not intrusive. The food is always spectacular and the specials are unique treats. Save room for desert, they are all home made. Bon Apetit!!!
Our drinks and salad arrived very timely. After that the service went down hill fast for us. The couple next to us who arrived after us had finished their desserts before our dinner plates were even cleared. After that, we had to flag someone to even get a check. We were never offered dessert. It seemed that the owner or manager was paying special attention to regulars and we were not even acknowledged. That is, even though he spent time talking it up with the tables of diners on either side of us. We were very neglected. The couple to my right even looked over and commented to us that they arrived after us and were served way sooner than we were. Just not a good experience!
