This is a warm cozy place with good food and a local--or, at least Italian tourist--clientele. Service was good, the food was hearty and tasty and the portions were enormous.

We have eaten here a few times before and once again we weren't disappointed. The food is cooked by Mama, and the two sons run the restaurant and it all works very well indeed. Cuisine is typical of the region, cooked beautifully, and presented well. Good choice of wines and helpful friendly staff.

A 3-storey house converted into a restaurant with charm and character situated in the heart of the village. We stayed at da Felicin Residence so it was just walking distance. Reservations is recommended as it isn't very big but we were just 2 so they managed to squeeze us in. Restaurant uses fresh local ingredients and styled towards regional specialities.... More

Had my birthday dinner there, very nice meal and very friendly staff. Got a really tasty gluten free dessert, a pastry with cherries, which had Happy Birthday inscribed on plate. Was really impressed as few places bother about gluten free. Thanks for the treat!

This was one of the best meals we had in Italy. Breadsticks are homemade and incredible (and I'm not normally a breadstick sort of person). The service was incredibly kind and professional and our waiter helped us pick out a great Barolo. The asparagus dish they served (in some kind of puff pastry with cheese) was AMAZING. Veal stew was... More

This is our second visit to this lovely restaurant. It's a family owned restaurant, with bothers are in front of house, while the mother cooks the lovely food. It really is like eating in someone's house rather than a restaurant. The food is always good quality and the service excellent.

Uncomplicated, good piemontese food with a slightly modern touch. The ambiance is cozy and nice, and the service very good. The wine list is representative and the prices are also very good - do not hesitate.

Nice all round experience. Great local food, wine list and service. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Monforte D'Alba area looking for a well priced quality Osteria. An osteria in Italy was originally a place serving wine and simple food. Lately, the emphasis has shifted to the food, but menus tend to be short, with an emphasis on local specialities... More

The high score of this place is the location. As strange as it might sound, it does not have a view and nonetheless is extremely suggestive and cozy. A courtyard in the heart of Monforte, with a couple of terraces where the tables are spread. In the air you can smell the bbq meat being cooked, and just by the... More
