Good local find.

Le Case della Saracca is two things--a tiny wine bar with a generous selection of free appetizers, and an excellent restaurant housed in a series of cave-like spaces, many lit by candle light.

It had been 8 months since our last visit to Saracca and we could not wait to get back to this amazing historic restaurant. We even returned with our extended family with us to experience this amazing place. On this night though it was fairly standard and nothing really stood out, neither service, food, food portions or the overall experience.... More

This relaxed but ambitious restaurant is located in a lovingly restored building in the middle of the picturesque little town. The climb up the hill is well worth the effort. Nice bar, great Piemontese food but it's probably the building itself that will stay in you memory.

I visited this restaurant with a friend last monday for dinner. We tasted some wines from their really impressive wine cellar (and quickly visited the cellar as well), and chose a great great Cavallotto 2005 for dinner. We both had lamb chops, which I believe were the best I ever tasted, served with fried vegetables and mixed salad as a... More

This restaurant is spread over three floors in two buildings, with a very modern interior. Original staircases and walkways lead to tables here and there, for groups of varying sizes. Huge selection of wines. Aperitivi at the bar. Traditional Piemontese food served with some unconventional combinations also (grilled cheese & banana?). All in all, a lively and friendly place to...

This is perfect for trying some of the great barolos with variety of older crus. Food is decent but the wine wins - go in the cellar that is impressive...

We were greeted by a rude, unhelpful, abrasive hostess. Well, I wouldn't say greeted. She avoided eye contact, rushed by multiple times, and pretended we weren't there. I started to think I may be walking out of this place but because everyone had great things to say our group decided to order a drink, relax, and explore the house. The... More

We've come here many times for dinner and it is a truly unique place. The mix of old and new architecture, a truly spectacular wine list, great service and and many of the typical Piemontese dishes with a modern twist, make le case della Saracca one of the 'must do places' in the area. Your host Guilio is very thoughtful... More
