Classically and consistently excellent. The food is excellent. Varied and reasonable wine list and fantastic service. The boar is excellent and the homemade pastas sublime. One of the best in Buffalo.

This is the best Tuscan (Italian) in the city. Service, atmosphere excellent. We felt like we were invited into their home. Highly recommended.

One of the best restaurants in Buffalo. Intimate setting at this family run spot – the food here is about as close to eating in Italy as one can get. Having eaten at essentially every “fine dining” restaurant in Buffalo, I can confidently say that San Marco definitely continues to be a cut above the rest.

I tell everyone about this place. It truly is a hidden gem and you won’t find a better meal or dining experience for your money in Buffalo.


Flat out the food at San Marco Restaurant is second to none in WNY. From the succulent Sea Bass, the light fluffy gnocchi, the mouthwatering raviolis to the uber tender veal – this food is divine. Day after day they turn out brilliant cuisine suitable for, but not limited to, the very most special occasions.

Step Out Buffalo

From the time they were on Elmwood Ave, San Marco has been our favorite restaurant in WNY. It is our go-to, we wonder why we don’t come more often. This should not just be for birthdays and anniversaries…. the food and wines are just too wonderful to limit the number of times we dine there.

For “True Italian foods” prepared for dinner , The most outstanding in WNY hands down ! Ellen and I love the family and the food! Always every visit ” perfection “.


One would be fortunate to reduplicate the dining experience found in San Marco even if one were to search through northern Italy. The Florentine inspired menu here is extensive and the quality is unsurpassed. The ambience – that is greeting, service, lighting – is perfect. If you must drive an extra 20 minutes to get here, do yourself a favor and go!

Superior Northern Italian food and delightful atmosphere. We loved the wine cellar room. Unsurpassed service. Best Italian food in Upstate NY and equal to the finest we have had in the US. My congratulations to the owners.
