molto buono - MA / very good - BUT

Normally I really don't care how a restaurant is managed- as long the food is good... But here at San Marco I noticed the first time in my long life as a gourmet/gourmant that a restaurant is ready to go to hell because of the management. My wife and me arrived with good moods and were well... read more

This place deserves its ratings, top value for money, although white truffle a bit overpriced. Too much fique in foie gras to my taste, egg with truffle work always so recommeded, fried ceps are breaded and not to my liking. Top notch pasta. Amazing service, relaxing atmosphere.

We've been in the region for 7 years and over these years we've gone to San Marco at least once a year. Our first visit was the best, for we did not even know we were going to a Michelin starred restaurant. The happy surprise was followed by delicious foods and courteous service. Afterwards we've had our ups and downs... More

LOVE this restaurant! We had our fill of traditional Piedmontese cuisine in Barbaresco, Nizza, Acqui Terme, Mombaruzzo, et al. We wanted some SPOT ON pasta our last night in the region. This restaurant nailed it. Had the rabbit, tagliatelle with white truffle, tiramusu, WOW! Excellent service as well. Owner is third generation truffle hunter too!

My wife and I along with two of our oldest friends rented a villa near Canelli for a week recently and we had a lot of fun trying the diverse food and wine in the region. Without question, our dinner at Ristorante San Marco was easily the best dining experience we had. The restaurant itself is set on a fairly... More

It was all very good and the pasta is one of the best pasta meals I have... More

we were here during the truffle season and made a reservation through local friends. The service form the moment we arrived was excellent. The truffles were not so good but we can't hold the restaurant responsible for this.... they generally weren't good anywhere this season. The pasta was amazing, fresh and served beautifully cooked. I'd definately recommend this place to... More

We easy and non down to earth, the atmosphere is maybe not the best you can find, as well as the lighting in the restaurant is not my favorite. But despite this, its a must... More

Service is warm and welcoming, food really good, but the selection of cheese, little homemade jams and sweeties and also wine are just superb!
