Our first Night in Italy

We have just come from France and Monaco and on this driving road trip found the best places to eat by having a car. This is one of those places. We had a wonderful, completely ethnic Italian meal.

We have been twice now and since we are going to be here for another two weeks, we will probably go back a few more times because we have tried several restaurants in Ovada and this one stands out. Splits of wine are available. Soup is amazing Salads divine, carne crudo in many forms, all fantastic. Pasta is perfect. Dolce... More

The waitress is not welcoming, but once seated we have had over the years lunch here and the food is excellent . The wine was excellent and the sweets were wonderful. The decor is typical of the region Piemonte. We as always had a brilliant lunch. My daughter loved the biscuits and the waiter gave her some to takeaway.

We really enjoyed the food and service from Pietro. Our Italian isn't great but Pietro took the time to explain the menu to us (and talked about football, the weather and cooking). First course we had soup with pasta and beans and tagiatelle with mushrooms and chili. Both had great taste, so little ingredients so much taste! For mains we... More

Went with friends who knew the staff. I feel they spent more time chatting as friends than looking after new customers. The food was certainly good but considering that we had shared starters and anti pasti I thought for the area the price was excessive. Atmosphere was very good and the appearance certainly made the place feel like a good... More

We didnt know where to go in Ovada for food, so I used what little italian words I knew to ask the locals and one well dressed woman said affirmatively "da pietro". The food was excellent, the staff was courteous and generous, and the food was excellent, even though the price was only the same as any other late night... More

The food was superior as was the service. It's hard to imagine a better place to eat. The server/owner literally coddled us and treated us like special family members. We ate here three times in one week so it was not and accident to be treated so well.
