We had the 5 course menu, at 35 euros, and every dish was exciting and delicious. A truly memorable dinner experience. The interior was, cozy and somewhat intimate, still roomy and informal. We liked the third floor mezzanine, with just 3 tables and a small veranda outside. Service was very professional and timing of the different courses perfectly orchestrated. Very... More

coming down from above in the dark we found this restaurant a bit difficult to find but it was worthwhile. Although we were told that they only opened at 8pm it was almost full by the time we arrived at 8.10 including one large party. The place had a nice buzz & we noted that a lot of the customers...

It's just 3 minutes away from the center of Monforte, in a very narrow street: you'll be rewarded by a warm welcome into a nice restaurant. It's on three levels, no particular suggestion... they are all ok, maybe the upper floor is smaller and more "private" we had just a quick lunch, with Monfortina (enriched by some truffle), lasagne, and...

This should be the No.1 restaurant in Monfort d'Alba. We stumbled across this cozy restaurant by chance on our second night in Monfort d'Alba. We were a group of 8 but luckily they squeezed us in at short notice. The food was amazing, between us we tried most of the menu & there wasn't a single dish that wasn't totally... More

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
