Our favourite restaurant in Sunderland keeps getting better. Now serving cocktails and with a great range of specials it serves lovely tasty food served by attentive staff. As regulars our favourite wine is opened as we arrive, try the Montepulciano. But leave plenty for us please. Hubby's favourite at the moment is the fettina with pepper sauce - a flattened... More

Myself and partner visited San Marino restaurant after hearing glowing reviews and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent value and great quality! The staff ensured you we're okay at all times and made the experience a fantastic one. Definitely will be visiting again, well done to management and staff of the restaurant!

Lovely food and service. Only thing, I like my food piping hot and my main dish was served just warm, I nearly sent it back but didn't want to make a scene. Very friendly staff and lovely decor. Will be back again.

Despite booking the table for 8pm and then having to wait 30 minutes crammed in next to the toilets and the coat rack, the food was worth the wait. Slick and attentive service, a corked bottle of wine was quickly and efficiently replaced without fuss, the place was a delight. I will return. Pizza was top notch but leave room... More
