At the forefront of the nose-to-tail trend, Incanto’s chef Chris Cosentino and owner Mark Pastore also carry the torch for sustainable dining and restaurant practices, like not serving bottled water and sourcing local and organic food for the daily changing Italian menu. — Valaer Murray, 2/18/11

Also, SPQR falls off, but we think this may be because they're getting a star.
Chez Panisse is on there too.
Make a special occasion extra carnivorous with a three-course “Leg of Beast” dinner for 6–10 people ($49 per person).
Chris Cosentino has revolutionized the way that American chefs treat offal with his work at Incanto, but the restaurant is so much more. [Eater 38 Member]
Italian inspired, with the best and most uniquely prepared offals in the world. -Mike Isabella, Top Chef
Chef Chris Cosentino is a high priest of guts. Once a year he sets aside two nights to do a special 5-course, all-gut menu. – Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations
Be daring and try the pig parts...they're #66 on 7x7's Big Eat SF 2010.
7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the spaghettini with tuna heart is delicious. Yum!
Chef Chris Cosentino is a genius, and one of America's foremost authorities on snout-to-tail dining. Head, brains, blood, guts--it's all edible bliss to Chris. --Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods
The “snout-to-tail” menu is not for the faint of heart! Are you as brave as a Borgia?
You'll think you're back home in Italy with the comfy-casual decor and cooking that satisfies every craving. Pair your carbonara with a selection from the amazingly diverse selection of Italian wines.
If you want to know what nose to tail philosophy and eating is all about, Chef Chris Cosentino serves up a master class every night. Bring 5 friends and enjoy the “Leg of Beast” feast. - Inspector
If you haven't tried the offal dinner, your life has been an offal waste. Set yourself right! Seriously one of the best meal experiences I've had in a long time.
Satisfy your inner carnivore with the Leg of Beast dining experience at chef Chris Cosentino's at Incanto Restaurant & Wine Bar in San Francisco, CA.
Adventurous dishes - tuna heart, pork shoulder, lamb neck... Everything was amazing and enjoyed one of the best pasta dishes I've had in the city (and it's not even Italian...)
Try the brain risotto and spot it on Foodspotting!
Reserve at least a week ahead for the "Quinto Quarto" 5th Quarter offal tasting menu.
Invite some friends to share the Leg of Beast dinner. You'll scoop marrow from the beef shank's bones, partake in the tendon, and gnaw on the bone-in beef of the shank itself.
063012 that is all.
Beef heart tartare with caviar
Best Panna Cotta in the city.
The tuna bones (roasted tuna spine) were incredible. Also loved the roasted pig face with pappardelle.
One of Incanto's more popular dishes is the bone marrow and beef tongue plate. You will not be disappointed with this order! As seen on Travel Channel’s Food Paradise: Manliest Restaurants 2.
61. Spaghettini with tuna heart
Nothing to do with Italian food. Never going back.
Eat it all. That is all.
