Cool restaurant in Monforte

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.

We have stayed in this extremely "not A4" hotel a couple of times and love to bring our friends there. They are all very suprised and pleased with the stay. All (5 ? ) rooms are very different but it does not matter which one you stay in AS they are all very nice. Julio is an host with an... More

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

I came here on my own as I had a few days in Piedmont after attending a friends 40th before flying bak to Australia and wanted to explore the countryside. I'm not sure if it was because they were busy or because I was on my own but I felt like I was an inconvenience and although my waitress was... More

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

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.

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.
