San Marino Soho

San Marino is home to the finest northern Italian Cuisine in New York City.
Our restaurant offers delicious and authentic dishes with recipes rooted in Northern Italy. San Marino serves the only finest veal, rack of lamb, chicken, and fish as well as homemade pasta and dessert.
Owner Sammy Gashiano started working in an Italian Restaurant at the age of 16 in Rimini, Italy. In 1995, he followed his passion to a NYC restaurant where he picked up the skills necessary in gourmet food at the hard knock school of fine dining, working his way to master chef in places like Acapella and Lorto’s. By the age of 32 Sammy established his first restaurant, San Marino, in downtown Manhattan at 15 Gold Street, which later expanded to Staten Island. Now, he’s expanded again offering his incredible food to the bustling neighborhood of Soho.
In December 2013, we opened the doors to Antica Ristorante in the Financial District.

"Received three complimenatry appetizers upon arrival. The waiter were fanstaic and even a bit entertaining. The penne bolognese was fantastic. We also received two nightcaps of homemade sambuca on the house at the end of the dinner. It was a very nice dinner in the skylight room.Great experince and great price, would definitely go back again."

"From the moment we walked in to the minute we left the staff could not have been more attentive. Sammy the owner was over seeing every table and dish that came out of the kitchen. The wine list was good, specials offered the night we went rounded out the extensive menu. The prices were not over the top in fact reasonable for Manhattan standards. We would definitely return."

"I've come back to San Marino to introduce my friend to the etiquette service, delicious food, and beautiful dining area! The staff was very friendly. We both ordered the Linguine vongole in red sauce! The food was beyond amazing, but yet, simutaneously affordable. One of the best Italian Resaurants I've ever visited! Eating under the divine sky light looked so beautiful in the rain. There was also a television there for our entertainment!My experience was amazing and I look forward to visiting again"

"We were seated at a very nice table and the service was excellent. The food was outstanding and the dessert was amazing. The menu offers many different choices and the service was very accommodating and attentive. They made sure that our food and experience was the best that it could be. I highly recommend this restaurant and I will defiantly visit again!"

"Small, intimate, and clean. The fried artichokes were dee-lish! The Caesar salad a bit heavy on a too-creamy dressing and the croutons tasted a bit stale.
The home-made Sambuca offered after dinner was excellent.
The service was attentive - a bit too much. however, better attentive than ignoring us."

"we had a very nice meal at San Marino Soho. The location was perfect as we were in the area for a concert and did not want to move the car after parking once. tHE service could not have been more attentive and they accommodated our requests: to make a drink not on their drink menu and to split a pasta and split an entree. I was pleasantly surprised when both split portions arrived on the same plate - very well done! And yes, their raviolis de nonna WERE better than my nonna's raviolis!
Normally I don't mind children in restaurants (especially at 6:30), but the children of the family 3 tables away were just too noisy and rambunctious and the parents did little to calm them.

"Dinner here before a concert nearby. From the time we were greeted, the staff was attentive and friendly, while never seeming overbearing.
My date wasn't too hungry, so we shared the shrimp risotto. Risotto is one of my favorites, and I was not disappointed! Great texture and flavor.
Nice, quiet and great for a romantic dinner or business lunch."

"We were surprised when we pulled up to see the restaurant located on the first level of a lower-priced hotel chain, however, what the restaurant lacks in presence, it makes up for in the most delicious italian food we've had. The waiters were attentive, the food was simply delicious, and based on the conversation my husband had with the waitstaff/management, most are actually from Italy! So, it was another lesson to me: never judge a book by it's cover.
I recommend that you try San Marino!"

"It was a quiet Tuesday evening for a team of 5 lodged nearby. The staff was very attentive, made great suggestions, anticipated the needs of our divers group very well, and accommodated both our vegan and meatatarian diners. I would caution readers about the qualifications of a group from North Carolina to judge New York Italian food... but we all really enjoyed it."

"This place is a perfect setting for a business dinner, birthday or just a couples night out. Service was superb; in addition, the food was excellent and the environment was very comforting. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for an A+ restaurant and you will definitely not be disappointed eating here."

"We decide to go and have dinner at this place before the show in Greenspace Center. This restaurant is all about good food. Both appetizers and main courses were very delicious. Black Linguine pasta with Calamari was excellent. This place is all about good food. The price was very good for NYC. Two weeks ago, for same dinner we paid almost double in Meat Packing. You wanna have good food? Consider this place! If you want to be seen, go 15 blocks up in Meat Packing and pay double."

"My two friends and I went to San Marino for dinner before seeing a show at City Winery which is just two blocks away. The Yelp reviews were very good and, as it turned out, very accurate. The restaurant is beautiful, romantic, has excellent acoustics with lovely music playing softly in the background, beautiful tableware (dishes/silverware) delicious and plentiful food and the service and people who work there are all first rate! In addition to a variety of delicious breads, we also received several complimentary pre-dinner small plates, including bruchetta, olives and parmesan cheese pieces. We all loved our main courses - two of us had chicken dishes and one had their home-made pappadelle pasta with porcini mushrooms. Everyone who works there was very personable and only wanted to make our dining experience as perfect as possible -- and it was. Also, their prices are very reasonable. We have tickets to see another show at City Winery later this month and already know that we are definitely going back to San Marino for dinner before. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough -- go and you'll fall in love with it too!
P.S. -- we ate dinner at City Winery before a show last month and the food was only okay, the prices were ridiculously high and you're crammed into a small table. For every reason imaginable, dining at San Marino is the clear choice to make if you're in the Soho/Tribeca vicinity.

"While staying at Trump SOHO, we ventured two blocks north to this little gem. It's entrance is a little unusual as it's through a hotel (Four Points Sheraton) entrance and a tiny bar area, but once inside, it's very comfortable and roomy. We sat in a huge semi-circular booth (just the 2 of us) and were immediately presented with delicious bread, cheese and olives. Nice wine list with reasonably priced selections-we had a pinot grigio. We shared a shrimp appetizer with cannellini beans and a light lemony sauce-different and delicious. We enjoyed the pappardelle pasta with a goat cheese mushroom sauce and veal ravioli with morel cream sauce. No room for dessert... The service was friendly, attentive and efficient. Overall, very reasonable prices for delicious, fresh food. Definitely, give it a try. Also, a nice private room for parties on site."

"Great find, in an unusual location. A Sheraton! Don't let that stop you. Everything was just perfect, and a great list of specials, even on a Monday night. Also a great place to dine before you walk to the City Winery to see a show. Only a block away. This place will be a regular for us."

"I almost don't want to say how good this place is so that it will become hard to get in to!The restaurant is next to a small hotel so it doesn't look like anything much from the outside. There is a small outdoor area to dine when the weather obliges. Inside the place is very pretty in an almost old Itaian way but there is a very high skylight that lets light in and gives a wonderful feel to the place. The wait service could not be more accommodating! When you arrive you have your water glass quickly filled. The table is laden with olives(no pits!), 3 different types of bread, olive oil and fresh chunks of cheese. The fish was cooked to perfection in a light and tasty sauce and the chicken special was equally delicious. If you can, you must try this hidden gem!"

"A little gem in an off the beaten track location. The restaurant has a strange entrance as it is attached to the 4 Points Sheraton hotel but once you get inside and past the bar (which seems like an afterthought) the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Service was extremely attentive and friendly. The three of us were happy - indeed impressed - with the quality of the the food, especially taking in to account the very reasonable prices. Veal Marsala with fresh mushrooms was excellent in particular. Gratis after- dinner drinks were a nice touch. A word of caution though - make sure to check your bill carefully.
Although we enjoy trying different places we will be coming back here, Excellent value and most enjoyable evening.

"From the outside, San Marino presents a nondescript facade attached to the Sheraton Four Points hotel, but inside, one finds not just another hotel restaurant. This Northern Itailan spot features an excellent menu. I started with prosciutto and melon for an appetizer. The proscuitto was tender and flavorful and the melon was just right - not so hard as to impede the flavor of the ham. For main course I had the fish of the day - red snapper in a white wine cream sauce. It was divine. I finished the meal off with a chocolate mousse, which was the only less-than-perfect dish - it was too cake-like and not enough mousse-like. Good, but not outstanding.
Unfortunately I don't remember what my companion had but our satisfaction with the restaurant was unanimous. A real find and worthy of a repeat visit.
We were there on the Saturday night of Thanksgiving weekend, which might account for the almost total absence of other diners. Service was impeccable - timely, courteous and efficient.
