This was an amazing find in the tiny town of Barbaresco. The restaurant sits a bit away from the center but has an amazing view of the valleys around. We had lunch al fresco facing the gorgeous view and the service and food was impeccable. Their wine list was also fantastic and made for a wonderfully memorable meal.

A wonderful location looking out over the valley to the snow capped Alps in the background. Sadly as it is early March the terrace was not in use, we can only imagine how good that would be. We came here based on Trip Advisor recommendations and were not disappointed. The food was good, we selected from the menu as the... More

After walking through Barbaresco with tons of tourists milling about we decided that we were ready for some lunch. Most of the restaurants in town were packed full and we started to search around. After searching we found Rabaya on the outskirts about .5 kilometer from town center. It was perched on a hillside with a glorious outdoor patio covered... More

We wandered into this place on a cool and damp, the warmth and ambiance were immediate, we were greeted as old friends and enjoyed a delectable meal with excellent wine (Barbaresco of course) and were very pleased with the value.

Very good, well-prepared food in large portions and for a small price, friendly staff that makes you feel at home, dinner on the terrace with the sunset in the background, what more could you want? We had dinner here four days during our week in Barbaresco and will gladly return on our next Piedmont visit.

We had an excellent lunch with only pasta. Great taste. Also a wonderful view from their terrace and enjoyable service. Inside the restaurant looked much less impressive, so I am skeptical as to having dinner there.

I think the main problem here was the service was too slow..4 hours to have supper left me tired and a bit bored. The starters were great but the pasta ragu had us thinking it was too soft for pasta. I know there is a thing about North Italy pasta not made with Durum wheat is softer but some at... More

This restaurant is not that magnificent as you would expect after all the high rates. The terrace is wonderful, the wine excellent, but the food is very average. No 'taste adventure' at all. There are better alternatives in the neighbourhood.
