Very pleasant atmosphere and enjoyable Sunday lunch.
Sadly the meals were disappointing. The meat tasted the same as processed products that had been pre-sliced and reheated. Not up to previous standards.
Everything about this place is amazing the atmosphere, the food and the staff!! We will definitely be back.
Fantastic food and service as always. Great to be back.
Service was friendly, the food was lovely and came out quickly, will definitely be returning
Accommodating, pleasant, prompt, friendly. Great place to eat.
Brilliant team who have perfected their offering at a smaller location over the years. A pleasure to see them thriving in their new bigger home.
Great food, lovely service and a cool ambience.
Not sure why they ask for occasion as they don't do anything for it anyway..
But the food was good.
Lovely, clean and spacious but noisy.
Food not as good as in old premises:belly pork totally overdone (and dry) but veg good.
Aperol spritz made with soda water (not prosecco).
Service slow but all staff friendly.
We will give it another try before deciding if we were just unlucky
Food was delicious apart from the pizza both my son and husband weren’t that keen on them as they were quite dry and flavourless. All other meals were lovely. Would go again definitely but world avoid the pizza.
Food was disappointing, bread dry and very difficult to eat when toasted for pate as rock hard.
Lasagne bland needed more flavour/seasoning.
Chicken was overcooked and chewy.
Sticky toffee pudding was not sticky at all, very dry and could not eat it.
Staff were very busy but friendly enough although no one really asked if food was ok until the end and it was difficult to catch their attention.
They did not charge for sticky toffee pudding.
We felt some of the food was probably frozen and then defrosted and reheated which resulted in the above issues.
The restaurant is out of the way and limited roadside parking.
I doubt we will visit again and do not feel I could recommend to others
Exactly what we expected, service was great, staff really friendly, food was excellent, this is the second time we have been since they moved from Chester Road and both times have been good, would recommend to friends and family or anyone else who was looking for a good night out with good food.
Great meal, good food and nice ambience, had two sunday dinner and two pasta meals and all were excellent
The food was hot when it came and tasty, enjoyed meal.
Starters were really good, mains were just average mashed potato was very watery no taste. Order was mixed up
Beautiful food, in lovely surroundings with a great atmosphere and excellent service - as always - from the team at San Marino.
Found this gem based on other great reviews and it certainly didn’t disappoint-amazing night. Easy booking service, outstanding service and fabulous food and drinks. We got 2 courses for £12 and portions sizes were very large. Will definitely be going back and recommend it to anyone who’s in the Sunderland area!!
Service and staff are second too none and the food !!! my goodness is the best I’ve tasted can’t fault anything at all and can’t wait to return
Lovely evening. Friendly staff, great food and excellent value for money.
Pizza and pasta dishes were really nice.
Starters were OK. I was disappointed to see dip served in a paper cup, I don’t think that’s appropriate for a nice restaurant.
Wine was decent and not too expensive and there was a nice Spanish lager on tap.
Would definitely go back.
Great food, amazing service. All round brilliant experience.
First time at San Marino @ Hanover place but won't be our last really nice food & homely feel resturant, staff very attentive, could I just suggest that you can leave a tip when paying by card, had no cash on me & that's the only way at present, I know the next time though ☺
Food was excellent the Italian scotch egg defo have again, good atmosphere felt like normality again
Very nice place lots of room the decor was very pleasing on the eye and it was a change to eat at the new San Marino!
We will be back and I will recommend friends.
Only complaint is that the focaccia has changed and wasn’t up to the usual standard. Otherwise good and service excellent as always
Beautifully decorated restaurant, beautiful food & great service.
Visited for Sunday lunch, which was lovely and excellent value. The service was very efficient and the restaurant is lovely and spacious. We will definitely visit again
Food and service was excellent will definitely come back.
We love come here for our regular afternoon meals
Previous customer of the old San Marino still as good as ever in the new home.
Continued success and see you soon for another delicious meal
Amazing quick service and friendly staff! Food was amazing as always
Order was not passed to kitchen, it was eventually taken again.
Wrong order was sent to table but we accepted to save time.
No serving spoons with veg, I had to use a fork to get peas on to my plate.
Had to chase staff for sauces which came after 5 mins which ment lunch was already cooling down.
Staff leaning over food to serve drinks.
Overall disappointing Sunday lunch with the family. We only live 5 mins away so I was pleased to here such a well respected restaurant was moving close. However after Sunday we won't be returning.
Fabulous Sunday lunch always, staff are always very attentive too 👍👍👍
Lovely sunday lunch had the scotch egg for starters really nice then pork for lunch really nice
Absolutely stunning surroundings, lovely attentive staff , food was amazing and portions were huge , total value for money , will definitely return.
Food was fab, service was really good - it’s a hidden gem! Beautiful place, will def be back. 😊
Me and hubby went for Sunday lunch was really nice staff very friendly
Lovely hot food and very tasty. Staff very attentive and friendly.
A regular at Chester Road restaurant so tried here however disappointed at lack of friendliness and lost its family feel. Quite noisy.
Great night, friendly staff, beautiful food, reasonably priced
