    • Had a very nice penne pasta dish here, very well flavoured and authentically Italian. Occupies a prime position at the V&A Waterfront, and you can sit and watch the world go by as you sit and eat. It’s pretty lively.

    • San Marco is by far one of the top ten restaurants in Cape Town. If you’re visiting the Waterfront, this is the restaurant for you to eat at. The food outstanding, if you don’t know what to order try the Bolognese, it made my day! One of the highlights of my trip to Cape Town!

    • Popped in for a quick bite, sat in the sunshine by a huge Christmas tree, listening to a jazz band nearby. Had a great lunch, a tasty wrap each, wine and fries. Less than £14! Amazing value.
    • Great location, can be chilly sat outside but they give you blankets to keep warm. Service quick, good choice of food, had a great (but cheesy) Lasagne.
    • Came to San Marco for my 5 year anniversary dinner. Had the best steak ever. Awesome service. Exceptional wall decor!
