The renovations match the top notch food. Dine in or sit at the bar either way you're sure to have a great meal and service. Lots of parking available. This is a good spot for private parties as well.

I ate here during a family birthday party. I ordered chicken Marsala. The meal came with a very small portion of summer vegetables and a very thin piece of chicken. It tasted fine, just not great quality. The location is in a very run down shopping plaza but inside was very nice. Staff and service was pretty good. Overall it's... More

This is the second time that I have been to San Marino, once for dinner many years ago and this time for lunch. Although the wait staff is young, most of the clientele seems to be senior citizens. I had the chicken parm and it was good but not outstanding for an Italian restaurant. Given its location, there are not... More

Have never had a bad meal here in many times as I have eaten here. The wait staff was excellant. If you crave a good Italian meal, come here. So many selections to choose from. Each one better than the next.

Sunday afternoon we went to see a play at the Shakesperience on Bank Street in Waterbury. It started snowing after the play and we didn't feel like going home to cook dinner. My wife wasn't sure what she wanted to eat. She asked me what I was in the mood for and I said Italian. "I want sauce". Besides the... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but nicely appointed on the inside. Haven't been her for over 25 years, but other than some decor changes, it's basically the same. The food is good (not outstanding) and the service was a little slow for our party of 9, but to be fair, there were a number of holiday parties... More

Hadn't been to San Marino's in years but thought we'd try it for our 42nd anniversary. Surprised that they were so busy on a Tues. nite. We ordered the veal and since it happened to be Ladies Nite, the chicken bruchetta. Both were excellent. What a deal the Ladies Nite special is: drink,appetizer, entree and dessert for $22. And lots... More

I hosted a small anniversary party at this restaurant yesterday. The service was exceptional from beginning to end. The food was delicious and prepared as the guests requested. When I made my reservations I made several special requests, all my requests were meet.
