One of our most favorite places. Always excellent service and food. This time we had the lamb chop special and shrimp stuffed with crab meat over risotto and both were amazing.

Wonderful atmosphere, great food and service. Early dinner for Mom's birthday provided a quiet setting. I will definately return.

Went there for Mother’s Day for lunch. The food was delicious- we ordered Chilean sea bass over risotto, lobster ravioli, and gluten-free gnocchi in a bolognese sauce for our mains. The Italian cheesecake was heavenly.
My one teeny tiny complaint was that I received a cup with a lipstick stain on it when I ordered my tea. Other than that, the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Service was terrible. Didn't get things we ordered, got things we didn't order. Cappuccinos once finally served (after waiter forgot to bring) was most likely not the decaf I ordered. Was up till 6am next morning. Complete disaster.

My husband and I have been here so many times and are always impressed with the food and the service. However, this was the first time we’d been to San Remo since the pandemic started and somethings have changed. Our server, who seems to lack a personality based on our few encounters, was outwardly annoyed that we placed our appetizer order with the busboy who also took our drink order. It took almost 20 minutes for the server to come over, and he rambled very quickly through the specials before sauntering off. We only saw him two more times, to drop and collect the check. Thanks to the bus boys and other servers who stepped up to take care of us while our server couldn’t be bothered.

Normally this guy doesn’t get under our skin too much because the food is always amazing but they breaded the shrimp in the fra diavolo (why? Gross and they don’t normally do this) and let my husbands veal cutlet under the heat lamp for too long. The cheese was bubbled and burnt.

not in a rush to get back here...

San Remo never fails in serving up excellence, between the food, the service and the ambiance. Love how the owner walks around to greet guests and check up on things. This is our go to place.
Highly recommend.

My wife and I are both gluten-free and they have an entire gluten-free menu - and they even had gluten-free bread! I had veal parm for the first time in years and my wife had pasta with white clam sauce. Both were excellent! We sat outside, in the back is a small courtyard and it was very pleasant. My only suggestion for he restaurant is when making a Negroni measure equal parts and use a single large ice cube rather than a glass filled with small cubes. But honestly for people who are gluten-free it doesn't get much better than this.

A very nice evening at San Remo restaurant. They had some great specials for the day. We ordered off the menu Parmigiano Chicken, a special of the house. My friend ordered pear salad and a pasta with seafood. All excellent. Great service, ambience and extremely safety precautions were in place. Certainly will return again

I could not be happier with my first experience at San Remo. My son is severe Celiac. Gluten and cross contamination is a major concern for me and his well being. The server was so patient and understanding of all my questions and concerns. The food and presentation was excellent. We will definitely be going to visit more often. And possibly even using the catering service for our home events

Another great meal at San Remo. Went here for the first time 2 weeks ago and loved the food, but we had a price fixed menu because it was Valentine's Day. Took the whole family this time and everyone loved it! We started out with the seafood salad and the avocado, shrimp and onion appetizer. Both were very good. The bread is crusty and delicious. My husband had the osso bucco (Veal shank) and loved it. The risotto was a bit al dente for my taste, but the osso bucco was very good. I had the filet mignon again. Very very good. My sons had the San Remo chicken and the penne a la vodka, which they said was excellent. The bread is good, the drinks were nice and actually had alcohol in them (most places serve weak drinks). The desserts we chose were the hot apple crumb with ice cream and the cannoli. Both were delicious. Definitely will be back.

The ambiance is very nice. Tables are spread out . The food was delicious. Fried calamari appetizer was very tender. The baked clams were delicious. Chilean sea bass special was huge and very good served over risotto. It is a bit pricey though, especially the specials.

This is officially my favorite Italian restaurant. San Remo had always been consistently wonderful.

The service is excellent, the tables have been spaced appropriately and all employees are masked up.

Seafood is always fresh and the Chicken San Remo is a must try. I love their zucchini sticks, lightly breaded and so delicious. Can't wait to go back!

I was so pleasantly surprised at how DELICIOUS the food was! My husband and I went on Valentine's Day and were escorted to a corner table. The waiter came right over with bread, butter, and offered us sparkling water or tap. The bread was EXCELLENT!!! We ordered from the prix fixe menu. We had a choice of appetizer, main course and dessert. For the appetizer, I had the crab cake, which was excellent. Th crab cake had very little breading, and a ton of moist crab. The flavor was traditional. I recommend it. My husband had the baked clams, which he enjoyed. For the main course, I had the filet mignon. All I can say is that it was huge and the best tasting filet I have had anywhere. It was tender and had a wonderful flavor. It was like butter in my mouth. Sides were mashed potatoes, which I did not get to try, but my husband said they were good, and broccoli, which was done nicely.My husband had the lobster/seafood fradiablo. It came with linguine. For dessert, he ordered the strawberry zabaglione, which is a loose Italian custard. It was very very good. I ordered the chocolate mousse cake, which was very good as well. The drinks were good. You could actually taste the vodka in my vodka and soda. Overall, I cannot wait to go back and try more food off of the menu. And, I might add, I live in a neighborhood with many well-known Italian restaurants, but none as good as San Remo.
