Ruined my Son's 18th birthday party. Extremely slow service. 1 hour + to have order taken and even longer for food to arrive. Had to chase staff for initial drinks order. The problem was that they were attempting to keep the restaurant running while serving a function which was seriously degrading the dining experience of quite a number of tables,... More

What a fantastic hidden gem. It was recommended by friend and I wasn't disappointed the price was extremely reasonable and food absolutely delicious. We had 2x Starters 2 x mains and 2 large soft drinks for less than £40 will definitely be going back.

Visited lunchtime today with my fiancé, my parents and my sister. We all went for the 2 course midweek offer which was only £10.95, or £14.95 for 3 courses. The food was excellent, as was the service. I'm a vegan and was a bit cheeky and took my own dairy free cheese and asked for it to be added on... More

Went here last Saturday (24th) for a birthday meal. Earlier on in the day I had taken banners balloons and sequins for the table as it was my mums birthday. We arrived at the restaurant at 8pm and the banners and decorations was nowhere to be seen. Disappointed really as they said earlier they would put them up. The food... More

Having been here a couple of times, we decided to celebrate Nan's 70th birthday with a family meal over the weekend. Booked for 16, we were seated on a large table obviously put together for our large group, much better than having 4 tables of 4 and being split up. We pre ordered food which was a great idea. Starters... More

As a regular visitor to the Bolton area I have eaten here several times over the past couple of years. Food is consistently good, prices are reasonable too. Good selection of traditional meals, pastas, pizzas, etc. plus much more.

We went to San Marco last night for the first time and we were not disappointed, the menu was extensive and catered for all. The staff were attentive and very pleasant. The food was stunning and we all tried different things and we were all very satisfied with what we ordered. The wine was good quality and an added bonus... More
