Enjoy the sunset during a very good dinner

Located on the top floor of the hotel building, this restaurant gives a wonderful view of Alta Citta in the evening. That should be enjoyed as the sun sets. Excellent food, carefully prepared and beautifully served, my compliments to the chef. In any case, the best dinner during our stay in... read more

We had an evening meal at this restaurant and loved it! We arrived just in time for sunset and were able to enjoy breathtaking views across the Città Alta as the shadows grew longer. The waiters were incredibly attentive and helpful, happy to explain things in English when our Italian failed and very knowledgable. The food was delicious and the... More

The restaurant is located on the 8th floor of the Hotel San Marcos Bergamo with a very nice view of the old town. The staff were friendly and active. The gourmet menu on the other hand had limited options and the food was average. After dinner we had coffee outside (they don't serve food outdoor). Weather was very pleasant

The food and views are amazing, easily the best meal we had in Bergamo. Its not cheap but its well worth the extra spend. The staff gave great advice on wine pairings to suit our meal and were extremely knowledgeable. Can't wait to return!

Italian friends took me here for lunch. We had exceptional discreet service in this lovely dining area and good food. The dining room has panoramic 180º views of Città Alta and Città Bassa with a large outdoor terrace.

The atmosphere was so sophisticated, the background music was so well done, scenery outstanding. Service was professional as it is in every restaurant in San Marco. Service we got was fast and discreet enough BUT the food wasn't in line with our expectations. It's dangerous to rely on Michelin star, if you don't have anything but plan to serve. A... More

Great location with a view of the old city. Service was terrific. The food was good to very good. You pay a premium for the location but we thought it was certainly worth it.

This one star restaurant in the lovely city of Begamo is trying a bit too hard. We the Typical Bergamo Menu, and each dish was very good, but without light and shade. Coping with pasta, polenta and cake is very hard on the stomach - give me a Brussel sprout! Anything green!! The service was a bit hit and miss,... More

Our traditional cuisine is based on flavourful and delicious ingredients, but it’s definitely not light. That said, our staff tries to make them... More
