Called in here on Saturday night for a meal and despite being busy we were seated and served quickly. Food was very good, good selection of drinks and good service. Will definitely return when visiting the area again.

I have been to the Martinos in Seaburn and Seaham several times over the years and have never had a bad meal or experience. The food is excellent quality and reasonably priced

Pleasant, funny and welcoming staff make for a good experience which is only made better by good food. Great steaks and pasta (penne aldo is brilliant). Only thing holding it back from being a 5* rating for me is that the decor is a little dated and the place could do with a thorough dusting.

Would choose every other Italian in the... More

If you are at Seaburn for the day, seek out this place which is just set back a short distance from promenade. It is relaxed and has a good choice of food and drinks.
