Conveniently located one mile from downtown Waterbury, San Marino Italian restaurant is the perfect choice for pre-theater dining. Thanks to plenty of onsite parking, a 5-minute drive to the grand Renaissance Revival-style Palace Theater and a 10-minute ride to the historic Seven Angels at the Hamilton Park pavilion, you’ll have time to enjoy expert preparations of homestyle pasta and Italian food at your leisure, without worrying about making your show’s curtain.

Our proximity to both venues makes for a true dinner-and-show experience among some of Waterbury’s treasures: The long-lived authentic Italian restaurant San Marino and the historic Palace and Seven Angels theaters.


About The Palace Theater

Please let us know you are attending an event when you make your reservations, so we can ensure your meals are ready with enough time for you to enjoy them before you have to leave for the show. We’ll even build in time for coffee and dessert, as long as you leave room for it. If you’re cutting it close and would like an appetizer and a glass of wine at a casual Italian place before the show, San Marino also features a large, bustling cocktail bar at the back of the restaurant.

About Seven Angels Theatre
