Sam Marco is not "just" a Michelin restaurant with top-class food and dishes... It is an experience, which truly combines world-class cuisine with the atmosphere of a small, local, Italian restaurant. There is no dobt that the chef is fully worthy of the Michelin star! But; just as important, the waiters (all of them) manage to run a service and... More

Our hotel concierge recommended San Marco and we were not disappointed. The service was attentive without being pretentious, and the chef even came by at the end of our meal to make sure we enjoyed everything. The entire meal was delicious, but the tajarin with black truffle and the tagliata really stood out. The wine list was extensive, and our... More

Our hotel recommended San Marco to us and we enjoyed our rooftop dinner here. Service was discreet and professional and the food was very good. A strong wine list enabled us to have two half bottles of wine, one red, one white, with our veal cheeks and zuppa di pesce. It is pleasantly low-key for a Michelin-starred restaurant, which we...

My husband and I ate here during a trip to the region following a recommendation by our hotel. With one Michelin star we were ready to be wowed, and weren't disappointed! We had the tasting menu - excellent value at 55euros a head, and truly exceptional food! My favourites were the scallops and the cannelloni. The waiter was great, letting... More

We enjoyed an evening dining in this 1-star Michelin (since 1989) restaurant in the wine region south of Asti in Piedmont. They have clearly carried on a long tradition as reflected in the restaurant's main room which will not have changed its look in 20 years. And I am sure no-one would want it to. A straightforward Piemontese menu with... More

The service was good, except for the owners. She cooks, he does the service. The two waiters were very friendly, they speak English and they know their etiquette. The owner cleared the plates as if he worked at a fast food restaurant. The food was okay, I had the menu piccola, the starter salad was really just some salad leaves... More

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
