To me this place stood out - there are a lot of restaurants in Cherasco that serve snails. However, I don't want to come to Italy to taste local snails served "A La Paris" as most places seem to have - drowned in butter and garlic! I want classic regional cooking and I think I found it here This is... More

I really liked the ambience of an old style trattoria set down in a kind of "cellar". The service was good and very patient with us. We had a great time and really can't complain about the food. I didn't eat the snails but my pasta and antipasto was average. My husband's snails were good but nothing outstanding. Overall I... More

We had a quick dinner at this place. Great pasta and the chef introduced the ingredients after we had eaten. Additionally we got good recommendations of wineyards to visit.

We came to Cherasco especially to try their snails .. stumbled upon this restaurant, as it was Tuesday and a lot of the restaurants were closed. It's a lovely cosy place and the owners and staff were really friendly. We both sampled a glass of the local Barbaresco. The stand out dish was the Tajarin al sugo di lumache. Lovely... More

I've ate here a few times now while in the area on business. I generally stay in Cherasco for the main purpose to go to this restaurant again. Very friendly owners, Pietro the Chef/owner will visit your table to speak English to help with the menu selections and his wife always a very friendly host. Excellent older vintages of wine... More

Very nice restaurant in the city center of Cherasco. The staff was very friendly, even to explain the main courses to 2 French guys not able to speak Italian! We tried a good red wine from the area (barbera d'asti). The food (including the snail specialities) was really good, and for a quite cheap price (especially compared to Paris).

We had a nice homely lunch at La Lumaca, after a recommendation from a friend and also then a local. We found the chef and his wife to be very friendly and welcoming and were happy with the service and ambience. The food was not amazing, but neither was it terrible and as we had left it a bit late... More
