The service by Italians was, as usual fast and efficient but the cuisine was not as good as we expected after having seen the other reviews on TripAdvisor. The starter (octopus salad) was not suficiently seasoned. We chose veal with marsala sauce for the main dish - the veal was tender but the marsala sauce was insipid. We did however... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant serving quite authentic Italian cuisine - it is not a pizzeria (of which there are anyway many ;-) The food was always good and the products they use to cook are of high quality. The two owners (which are brothers) care for a very close and warm-hearted relationship to their guests, attentive and... More

We were fortunate enough to dine on a warm evening where we could enjoy the outside seating. This is top class Italian food that is full of flavour. The house speciality was a particular delight "fatscha" - ricotta and spinach parcels baked is a pool of tomato creme sauce. A nice touch is that the dishes are available in starter,... More

This is an old fashioned restaurant with great Italian cuisine. The staff is very friendly and we felt like being part of a family. It seemed to us that they have a good number of returning guests. All the food was of outstanding quality, simple Italian made with first class ingredients. As it should be. We will certainly be back!

Luckily St Gallen is not a big tourist attraction, because I wouldn't want too many people discovering my favorite place. I noted recently that Facincani has the number one rating in St. Gallen, and they deserve it. The cozy restaurant near the historic Gallus Platz has delicious food and a dedicated crowd of locals. For Americans, a good steak can... More

I stayed many times in Facincani, a wonderful, tiny little restaurant with great food. no pizza - no pasta as you imagine ... it's freshly cooked and they serve wonderful wine as well. Always worth to visit!
