The staff made our evening a wonderful experience. From our first contact, we were asked about any food allergies or concerns. Our server made excellent recommendations on the menu. The food presentation and flavors were fantastic. The surprise anniversary wish was a special treat. We were made to feel welcome and important. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Marco Island.

Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try. We have been to much better restaurants for the prices they charge. This would not be a do over for us.

I've dined there a few times & had excellent dinners & drinks but this time our apps where half cold. Mine was replaced immediately but my fiancee didn't say anything as he thought maybe there just having an off night but he paid for that thinking in the middle of the night.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL RESTURANT! WE ARE LOCALS THAT LOVE FINE DINNING! WE HOPE TO BE BACK SOON!
We were in Marco Island I wanted a special night for my wife's birthday and they did not disappoint. The view from where we were dining of the sunset was beautiful. The food was amazing and the service was nothing short of outstanding. A must see if you are on Marco.
Always great food service and view!!!

The food was delicious and service was great. Unfortunately there was a private party outside and we didn't get to go or sit outside. Overall would recommend. Reminded us of a good New Jersey Italian restaurant.
Beautiful setting, good food but not outstanding, they need to control families with misbehaving children and get better music. Marco Island seems to have blaring music every where, not sure what the deal is. Guess that's what all the Yankees like, lol
dining with sunsets
A great place for delicious food in a wonderful setting. The sunset can be spectacular and the service prompt and enjoyable.
Low quality food
We ordered pasta with sausage on top. Pasta was uncooked and sausage was hard. Not tasty. Also my daughter ordered steak and it was too dry. Overall we pay too much money and we did not receive outstanding food.

A favorite of ours when visiting Marco Island. Love their fish dishes! Staff is very professional and service is top notch. Watching the sun set while dining there is such a nice experience.
This is a beautiful spot to dine. I wish we had looked at the menu in advance. We are not picky eaters but found it difficult to find a dish we really wanted (especially for an Italian restaurant). Many of the dishes had pork in them which I do not eat. Even when I thought I found a safe pasta dish I discovered it had tuna eggs in the dish. I ended up with the Chicken Marsala which was good and we shared an eggplant parm appetizer that was excellent (wish I could've had that as a meal). I like to have more choices so therefore would probably not return. The atmosphere and service was impeccable therefore we would absolutely recommend this restaurant to others but highly encourage them to peruse the menu first. This restaurant was a little pricey but not outrageous.
Great View. Good Food.
This restaurant had a great view and good food. We thought it was a bit pricey, but the service and view were obviously what you paid for. The food was good, but nothing to write home about.
Great location on the water
We were there for lunch, intrigued by their dinner menu and were a little disappointed in the selection on the lunch menu, not very Italian. The food was great though, we both had the lobster roll that was reasonably priced and had large pieces of lobster. The restaurant itself overlooks the Gulf and the gorgeous water, the place was very elegant. We will try dinner next time were are on Marco Island.

My wife's entre came out cold. My cod was to be prepared without potatoes and extra onion rings...did not happen. Vessy worked hard to make it right but overall not as good an experience as the Saturday before.
We enjoyed a beautiful sunset evening with a tasty dinner served professionally. There was however a noisy private cocktail part adjacent with our dining area that fortunately ended early into our dinner. It still remains a wonderful memory of a great evening.

The menu included a wide selection and the food was excellent. The service was truly memorable. Our server was extremely knowledgable and provided perfect recommendations for both the food and wine selections. And there is nothing like the view at sunset. It was a perfect Anniversary dinner.
good news and bad news
So the good news...it is a great location with a lovely vyiew of the sunsets and the food is very good. The bad news ? While the server was very friendly and attentive the food service was incredibly slow. The hostess who took our reservation call was cold, impersonal and on the edge of being downright surly. We came close to cancelling our reservation.
View is amazing, but food was mixed.....
Some plates were pretty good, but then others were just so so....but luckily the view and the ambiance out weighed that

Service was excellent...food was just ok. Very small portions . Very hard to understand the waiter...most have very thick accents...the view is excellent...
We just had our first truly fantastic meal on Marco Island. Although this restaurant is expensive, the food is delicious and the service is impeccable.

A pretentious place, but the food was excellent. They were of no help when my daughter had an allergic reaction to something in the food, but if you don't have any allergies and want some pomp and circumstance, you might enjoy it! Very expensive, but also high quality.
I had reserved 3 weeks before the Easter brunch and I had requested a place for 6 peoples on the terrace . I had done my reservation immediately at the advertisement of the menu for Easter brunch but it was not possible for the TERRACE, 3 WEEKS BEFORE THE EASTER. I had a reservation anywhere in the dinning room without sight of the Gulf . They took my reservation without considering my option.
Overwhelmed staff struggled to serve
Disappointing experience when compared to earlier visits. We spent much of our time searching for our servers, menu was very small and specials were non existent. Our server told us they may announce specials later in the evening? Our reservation was for 7:00! We had 2 great dining experiences here months earlier when they were not as busy as they were this week. Lesson learned!
Can improve value
This was our third fourth dinner at S&P, the previous three were two years ago. The setting, decor, and service are excellent. The wine list offers a wide variety and range of prices. The food, while good and attractively presented, was not up to the prices being charged. My partners veal Milanese with potatoes and arugula was oddly conceived and rather ordinary. My agnolotti were tasty but had been sauced in such a way that they tended to adhere to the serving bowl. The food, not the location, should have been the star of the dinner.
When we arrived we were seated in the area of the bar (perhaps because we did not specify any particular area. ) But it became very noisy in a short time and we asked to be moved to a quieter dining area. We were accommodated immediately without any issue at all. We were overwhelmed by the attention and service we received. We were unsure of any food or service because it was Easter Sunday. We were pleasantly surprised.

Great food but 95% of menu contains mushrooms. Nice sunset view. Pricy.
Bartenders Marco and Edwardo are outstanding.
Bartenders Marco and Edwardo are excellent.. Please tell them...Gary & kKim
it was my boyfriend's birthday and I wanted to take him some place special. It was excellent!!! The food, the service and the ambiance were wonderful. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Two of us ordered "ribeye." It was tough and had no flavor. Looked like a cheap cut of sirloin. Asked the manager. He said they were serving a special kind of ribeye. Maybe so but it looked and tasted to us like cheap sirloin. And it was Sunday night. Probably because they knew we were unhappy, they imposed an 18% gratuity on us. There were 5 of us and I'd never seen that for fewer than 6 in a party. I'd never take bad food out on the servers by cutting their tip. Unfortunately for the servers in this case, however, I usually leave more than 20%.
