We traveled in October, in midst of white truffle season. The staff at San Marco were attentive, the food was incredible. Worth the splurge. The tavone was the best every -- and with the white truffles -- it's expensive, but bucket list kind of stuff.

We had a pleasant evening at san marco restaurant. The restaurant was full on that Wednesday. Our food was good and nicely presented. If you expect an extraordinary meal because it has a michelin star, you might be disappointed. The food is good, but not better than we had in other, also very good restaurants without a Michelin star. The... More

It does not get any better than Mariuccia's home made pasta, jams and desserts. The San Marco is an absolutely divine restaurant that celebrates Piemontese tradition and elevates all that this fantastic region has to offer in terms of culinary delights. The food is sublime, the ambiance warm and welcoming and the service is impeccable. You feel pampered from the... More

this restaurant is hidden away in Canelli and its decor harks back to the 1970's but the food and service are totally up to date. Helpful staff and a full and keenly priced wine list make this a place to try. The food was also very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious using fresh local ingredients. We will certainly return here... More

Friendly, casual, great value, big portions, Not what one might expect form a Mich star restaurant.. I was a bit undecided after reading all reviews but I am so glad we went.

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 received. A really... 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.
