Worth the detour!

This was simply the most mind-blowing risotto meal we have ever had, starting with attentive service to explain and recommend regional/unique options. We expected a simple risotto meal and emerged, marvelled, at the complexity of the dishes that we received. 1) cod-filled amuse-bouche 2) my... read more

For dinner we had prebooked a Michelin One Star Restaurant Cinzia renown for its risotto creations and here's how it went. The GOOD : we started with a complimentary prosecco each and an amuse bouche of creamed cod with potato soup which was lovely. We then had a wonderful risotto with lobster bisque topped with a succulent lobster tail. Then... More

Open for lunch from 12:30p-3:00p and again for dinner from 8:00p-12:00a, this restaurant makes me wish I had set aside more time, and money, to stay in Vercelli longer. Coming from Genoa, with an early flight the next day, we stopped at this hotel to make the trip to the airport a little more tolerable. We couldn't have made a... More

We were on our way from Milan to Liguria area and decided to stop in Vercelli for this place only since we read great review here on TA. Their website said its open until 15:00. We arrived around 14:00 and were disappointed that the place was already close. We asked the staff if there is anything else open in the... More

The food was incredible, the wines were amazing and the service(speaking English) was exceptional. Our host explained in detail what we were eating and where the paired wine was from and its characteristics. One of the most delightful and exquisite dinning experiences I have ever had.

We had an excellent late dinner at this hidden gem. The regional menu - "terriorio" - with wine pairing was a natural choice for both of us. Excellent, friendly service, good wines and well presented tasty dishes. We left the restaurant around midnight with a good feeling. This restaurant is definitely worth stopping for.

We booked the hotel Cinzia via booking.com without knowing the restaurant. I'm here in the area to buy rice for our company. The first evening I had my dinner at Cinzia. I'm very suprised about the quality of the risotto, they really know how to choose the right quality of rice and to prepare it in exact the right way.... More

What an extremely pleasant surprise! To us Vercelli was not an obvious stop unless a friend had told us to visit the restaurant. Risotto is obviously the speciality, and this is undoubtedly the best risotto we've ever had. In addition, the service was absolutely superb!

Vercelli is not exactly a tourist destination. It is in the Po valley rice growing area. Flat as a board and rice paddies for miles. However, this restaurant is worth seeking out. My wife and I were driving from Zurich down to the Piemonte for a week vacation, and scheduled an overnight stop here just to eat in the restaurant.... More
