We probably couldn't have wished for a better last meal after 3 weeks of Italy. Piemonte cuisine but with a modern twist. It's hard to eat bad in Italy, but here the dishes are prepared in a Michelin * style. In upper-Dogliani we ended up here by surprise but loved the food, the kids as well (they loved the different...

What a delicious meal as a gorgeous restaurant! The owners and chef are clearly passionate about their food. The homemade pasta was delicious and the soup fabulous. Really lovely and would definitely recommend.

It was in the center of Dogliani near the hospital (which looked like an old villa at nite). We had a wonderful dinner with a fine Barolo. Service was friendly and attentive and the menu was inventive. A restaurant for a special occasions since it was expensive but it delivered with a wonderful meal, a memory.

Although this restaurant doesn't have a Michelin star it deffinitely deserves one. Fab Italian food with a modern twist and beautiful presentation. It's not cheap by italian standards but perfect for a special occasion

Was invited by friends to have a meal Friday night at this restaurant in Dogliani. Some other winemakers (apart from our friends) were also there, and the restaurant was also known to another winemaker we visited the next day. Good sign! Friendly staff, good, modern food with traditional background. Also fish, which is not so common (and not our choice)... More

I've been to this restaurant twice; first in 2008 and again in 2011. It's nice to see that a restaurant can be consistently perfect over time while avoiding a stuffy experience. The wine list is outstanding as you would expect in this region. Four of us were at dinner and we pretty much covered the menu so we all got... More
