The food is delicious and has a light touch. I had the eggplant rollatini appetizer and the ravioli with mushroom sauce--I'm still enjoying it long after having eaten it. A friend had the branzino, cooked in foil, moist and tasty.

I do not drink, but bottles of wine adorn the restaurant.

The cannolis are the best I've ever had. (Indeed, until eating at San Marino, I didn't even know cannolis can be ranked, but these are my favorites.)

The staff is friendly, charming, and attentive, yet discreet.

I've been to the restaurant three times. Once it was fairly busy, but the other two times it had only a few patrons, and I found the spacious, quiet ambiance at once soothing and refreshing.

Excellent food and service! Would highly recommend! Prices are extremely reasonable for that area of Manhattan. We arrived early for our reservation and were immediately seated. Drinks arrived quickly.
Very nice specials! It was a bit loud due to a large party of about 20 young men. It was nice after they left! I will definitely return when I am in the area!!

I have eaten in restaurant all over the world and i can categorically state , this is the best so far and nothing else come close.

The service is exceptional and the greeting and attention from the manager is phenomenal , this is by far the very best in fine dining.

The quality of the food is beyond belief. I have always found this place to be warm , friendly with service that cannot be matched.
Other restaurants should bow down and take notes this is how it’s done.

If i could give more than 10/10 i would. BRILLIANT.

San Marino is a good restaurant but the service is awful. It’s good ONLY because of the food and a nice server named “Gume” (Gumercino), he’s latino and hosts you as you deserve, with recommendations, outstanding service, constantly attention, etc. However there’s another server named Arbi or something similar, that at the end he ends up being “the manager” when you have a complaint (honestly it’s the first time in my life going to restaurants rate with 4 or 5 starts that the manager serves at the table too). You have to discuss with him for some considerable minutes and go back to the restaurant if you want to get a refund for a doble tip because their phone line is shut off. YES! THIS RESTAURANT DOUBLE TIPS and they don’t let you know that the tip is include in the check already, which by law is forbidden.

To read more continue here:
Anyway, you leave your tip like in everywhere and you say this to Arbi, who took the payment already and he doesn’t tell you that was already charged (Not honesty at all). Is it not suspicious? Well, yes! And it’s more when you try to contact and call the same night to restaurant, and every day the next week to the phone number in Opentable and also registered in the check and the phone line doesn’t work. The worst is when you could take some of your time to go to Tribeca again (when you don’t go there ever) and say the issue that happened to you and then he says he’s the manager and gives a lot of excuses justifying his behavior. And he still asks what we need, because for him isn’t obvious yet that This is not Right!... We want our money back of course!!!

I enjoyed the meal at San Marino and the service was really good. The ambiance can use a little help and they need to add non dairy options for coffee. In today's dietary trends, Oat or Almond Milk are almost a pre-requisite.

We came early (5:30 pm), and enjoyed easy seating and a quiet time. The decor is tasteful. Two waiters served us, and both were knowledgeable, professional, personable. The food was wonderful first to last: a fine minestrone (Northern Italian, not tomato-based); a shared eggplant rolletini appetizer, so tender and tasty (perhaps my favorite dish); and two pasta dishes, one with seafood, which were flavorful and hearty but not too heavy (no easy trick). For dessert we split two cannolis. I've had cannolis in many places in different cities, and these were my favorite. I've given this more thought than anyone should: I think it's because the shell had character without being hard or brittle, and the filling seemed to me just a bit like ice cream. I'm glad I didn't take cannolis to go or I might have eaten them all night. I did take my pasta dish to go and much enjoyed it the next day. SoHo can be proud.

THe atmosphere was pleasant -- large, not cramped. The service was excellent. The food was average. The fried zuccinni that they offer (not ordered) was soggy. The bread was stale. My minestrone was mild and good. My carbonara was standard, nothing special -- a bit salty and gooey. My friend said his veal was good and his caesar good. The cannoli that we shared was great.
In all, it was pleasant, but not outstanding. Average.

A little gem of a restaurant in a business neighborhood with few options. Excellent staff and menu. Don't let the front entrance dissuade you - once you get inside the dining room is actually beautiful. Highly recommended.

As soon as you sat down the waiter presented wonderful appetizers and home made Sambuca.
I always go with recommendations and the zucchini special was outstanding along with sauce.

This restaurant is a standout including chocolate raspberry dessert.

While pricy for Italian food, the service and food is superb. Our waiter was kind, knew his specials, and made great recommendations. The specials were tasty, the zucchini chips, olives and bread are a great complimentary start, and the wine went well with the dishes. Whether you want pasta, seafood, or chicken, this place does not disappoint. Very pleased with their ability to handle dietary restrictions and get us out in time to make our show. Great dining experience!!

Very nice, traditional Italian restaurant. Great service. Went here for dinner with our CEO and management staff for lunch. Total of 10 of us and it was a great 1st time. White table cloths, ambiance very intimate. We had a few bottles of Barolo wine. The service and the food are worth the trip. The portions are generous food it’s fantastic. I highly recommend It.

I was recommended to try this restaurant by a friend. From the start you know you are in for a treat bring your appetite. The food was very good. Ignore the negative reviews. I eat at fine restaurants weekly and my wife and I agreed that this was our new favorite. Service, food, atmosphere- excellent.

Typical Authentic Northern Italian Cusine. It felt like the grandmas house. Went for lunch with my coworkers food and service is just so great !
We didn't even need to look at the menu, the server just read our mind. The food was FANTASTIC. At the end of our meal they greeted us with their house-made Sambuca which was so nice and elegant comparing to the regular Sambuca.
Great find in the neighborhood will definitely be back.
