A magical abode of the'700 wrapped in charm, a taste elegant, antique and sought, located in a picturesque environment, which recalls the old lounges meeting Renaissance, the result of skilful fusion of retro influences and a special new, sober and taste exclusive.
Favorite Dish: One chef who plays a strategic role in the choices Villa del Sole, interpreting in a unique way new and old flavors, with a single goal, to become the romantic dinner. A moment of real pleasure that give emotion those who choose Restaurant Villa del Sole.
I can suggest ristorante 'La Fratta', right in the city center.
They serve very good food (local specialties, very good meat and fish). Medium prices.
Ask for Stefano (the owner), he speaks good english, and tell them that Lino (myself) recommended the restaurant.
Favorite Dish: Tagliatelle and all fresh pasta dishes
Very nice vegetables buffet
Piadina (uneaven bread) with soft cheese
Fiorentina (T-bone steak)
Fish (catch of the day)
A nice small stop for a snack next to the car park underneath the castle walls between 1st and 2nd towers. Good selection of usual Italian foods and good service too.
English not spoken too well by the owner but my Italian and pointing will always work well.
Favorite Dish: Pannini
There are many restaurants in San Marino, all of them offering more or less the same. You can choose amond single dishes like pasta, pizzas ... or you can order a daily menu. Al restaurants seem to have the same price for it, 16 euro (18 euro for fish menu).
We decided for Bellavista restaurnat because it was the closest at the moment and it has a nice view (as the name suggests). Melas were OK, but nothing special. My menu was made of combined first course (pasta with salsa and ravioli in oil with basil), main course had different types of meat and for the dessert I had a fruit salad.
Just on a main walkway walking by we noticed an empty table and wonderful aroma. We took a seat and were pleased with the service and food!
Favorite Dish: Fresh pasta caught our attention right away. We sat down, scanned the menu and asked the server for their specialty. He showed us a trio of fresh pastas and we agreed. It was a lasagna, tortelloni, and flat noodle each with a distinct sauce and flavor! Very nice!
In San Marino you can find a lot small caffees there you can taste different kind of pizzas or other italian food.
Coffe and beer taste also great.....Don't look at table there i'm sitting....it is nearly empty,because picture was taken a little bit late....After good lunch
Visitors to San Marino will find themseleves inundated with more than their fair share of touristy snack bars that offer only the standard pizza-ice cream-soft drink options. However, the Republic is not without its culinary treats. Perhaps the best restaurant in the whole country is La Fratta, with an extensive Italian menu and a wine list featuring some of San Marino's quite good native vintages. La Fratta's decor generally fits in with San Marino city's medieval feel, although with a bit of a modern twist. The service is friendly, almost familial, and the food is the best in the tiny country. The other restaurant worth a visit is Righi La Taverna. Although the food here is not the equal of La Fratta, it is still pretty good, and the decor is even more medieval, allowing diners to feel as if they are really eating in a castle. The service is friendly, if a bit less relaxed than at its chief competitor. Beyond these two restauants, the food at the Hotel Titano restaurant is top notch, and the service very friendly - they opened the whole restaurant just for me so that I could eat after my plane was delayed. The restaurants at the Hotel Cesare and the San Marino Grand Hotel are also far better than the standard hotel fare. Also, there are several good bars scattered throughout the town of San Marino - all with the same medieval motif - and a few excellent bars in the town of Borgo Maggiore that have the extra added benefit that they see fewer tourists despite the fact that they are only a cable car ride and a short walk away.
La Fratta, besides having a sort of neo-medieval atmosphere, is the best restaurant in the Republic, though it is not pretentious. The food is quite good, but it is the friendly staff that you will remember the most. They will treat you like family. Righi La Taverna offers a more authentic medieval feel - it's just like having dinner in a castle - and also offers alfresco dining right across from the Sammarinese parliament building.
Favorite Dish: A warm alcoholic drink not native to San Marino but consumed in the Alpine border region between France and Italy, Gorollo dell' amiciza, served at the La Fratta restaurant, is definitely worth trying. The word 'grollo' refers to the terracotta vase in which the drink is served, and 'amiciza' means friend. This refers to the fact that it is drunk by everyone at a table from the same vase. Grollo dell'amiciza is made only from ingredients that were available in medieval times, and is generally served only during the Republic's late summer medieval festival. The flavor is unlike anything you've ever had before and it packs a wallop, so you probably won't remember it anyway.
Everywhere at anytime, you will hardly see a so high concentration of shops and restaurants and bars in an another so small city or country
Try Piadina, here it's not the best, but still something good and tasty
La Rocca, in San Leo. Actually my family owns this ristorante, but it's been there for 40 years and is known as the best in San Marino. Ask for Ivo, and tell him CIAO from his cousin Arturo in Los Angeles.
Great atmosphere, great wine selection. Rustic ambiance.
Favorite Dish: Tortelloni di San Leo.
Pasticiatta alla Cagliostro.
Located in the heart of the medieval city, it is the best place for sightseeing you can imagine. It...more
