We were driving through Moncalvo and looking for a lunch place. Since there was parking available we stopped here and were very lucky. We had one of the best Risottos in Piedmont so far. As main course we had fish which as nicely cooked and still juicy. The Service was very friendly and professional. Compared to average pricing in Piedmont... More

We were staying close by to Mont Calvo and read the reviews on this restaurant. They did not disappoint. Very helpful and accommodating with children. We ate like kings and rolled out of the restaurant, not that the portions were too big, but because the food was so good. Must try: sorbet (passionfruit) it is amazing, the meat selection with...

From Milano you need about one hour and a half to get to Moncalvo by car, but you will find out soon that the long drive is well rewarded. Parking in front of the restaurant is out of question, but you can find spaces in the immediate vicinities. The outside look is not specialy attractive, rather anonymous, and the inside... More

My family have been patrons for many decades going back when it was located in the town's main square. Many things have changes, except all the things that are important. This is not a flash... More

We stopped for lunch, after a long drive, almost by accident walking in this otherwise understated restaurant. Full of locals, mostly on business lunches from nearby Asti. My fiancee had her best egg to-date (soft boiled first, then lightly coated in bread crumbs and fried), as part of a well balanced appetizer with a cheese fondue and mushrooms. There is... More

After being disappointed elsewhere, we decided to try this attractive restaurant in Moncalvo. It was elegant, the food excellent and the service friendly. They had a very nice cheese course as well as a creative dessert, a tiramisu inspired strawberry shortcake which was delightful. I had an asparagus "soup" with black truffle that was truly wonderful. The wine list was... More
