Unique Italian experience

I have been 2 times at least he restaurant and both were memorable. They serve traditional piemontese food including several delicious pork dishes. We went in December so they had truffles which were fresh and delicious.

We traveled from outside Alba and it took us 45 minutes to reach Le Case. Our expectations were very high and probably too much so. Snails were good, bananas and goat cheese interesting but you can skip it, gnocchi very good but not great, lamb chops excellent, salad and grilled veges very good (we are trying to get some veges...

Comfortfood and very friendly service from Julio and his staff. A huge winecellar and a lot of special wines in the cellar. Go there :)

Delicious food, excellent service, a little too trendy for the over-60 crowd. The biggest advantage of this restaurant is that it is three-quarters of the way up to hill to Villa Beccaris, so one can be confident of the ability to walk back.

You eat very nice simple food in the most beautiful and cool restaurant in Monforte. It's definitely a visit worth. Try their t-bone and ham negro.

Euro for euro, this place wins the best value aperitivo. They've got great wines, a tasty (though a tad bit more expensive) menu at the restaurant, all in a locale with a great atmosphere.

Very friendly staff. Although the place was full, still the atmosphere was relaxed, so one could really enjoy the fabolous food. Great choice of wine, and excellent suggestion from the waitress. Had a great evening

I have been visiting Luglio and his very nice colleagues many times in Monforte, and It is always a pleasure. Unbeatable interior which is a must to see. A wine list with wines from Piedmont you don´t find in many places - impressing, and a kitchen with typical local food. Don´t miss this opportunity. Lea

I'm still not sure we weren't all dreaming: there were 5 of us enjoying a very dry Franciacorta, Italy's (almost) secret Champagne while eating heaps of beautiful cheeses and salami in a room carved out of sandstone. Cabled, plexiglass steps and clear landings lead up and downstairs to other carved dining spaces from this tiny barroom. The bar itself appeared... More
