Osteria La Brioska was Established in 2007 in an ancient courtyard in the middle of Gattinara by the cook Giuseppina Baruffi with the aim to offer a typical wine and food experience. That's why almost everything is produced in Gattinara: from the worldwide famous wine to the raw materials used following the traditional recipes. In Gattinara's dialect the name Brioska means "place where you can temporary sell wine and food" and origins from an ancient tradition of the town.La Brioska is a warm "family-run business" managed by Giuseppina and her husband Celestino, their son Pietro and his wife Rosanna. From 2011 La Brioska is recommended by several gastronomical guidebooks, among which the most important is Osterie d'Italia by Slow Food.

Terrific, family-run Osteria. The ladies in the kitchen know what they are doing!

Pietro, and his father are both in the front of the house, while Pietro's wife and mother are in the kitchen. I mention this because it seems that everyone is right where they should be - my dining experience was warm (with many thanks to Pietro for his very fine English), the service quite good... read more

This is exactly my kind of place. A relatively small 'osteria', simple, quiet, old style. The menu is short (which is good!), a limited number of dishes, all express made, with a focus on local traditions and ingredients. Service is kind, professional, discrete and fast. And the wine list is absolutely top class. Finally, you may enjoy a full three... More

A group of friends, we went to La Brioska as it is known for its good selection of local Gattinara wines, not just the larger producers but also the smaller ones and the "crus". We had a great evening, if a little noisy - perhaps due to that fine red wine? The food was appetising and satisfying - traditional local... More

We had a meal there in September 2012, on a Monday evening, arriving there around 8.30 pm, and were then the only customers, so got all the attention, including the story (inspired by a local history writer's book) behind the name of the osteria. Well, the juniper anecdote led us to wine, and the owner suggested a Travaglini docg/Gattinara, 2006... More

We have been there several times, and though the cordial osteria atmosphere is worth mentioning, it is the food that makes the place special. Most of the dishes I havetasted there, from antipasto to dessert, have shown imagination and refinement. And they have an excellent selection of wines, not only Gattinara reds but whites too. By the way, Tripadvisor errs... More

On a VERY snowy night in Gattinara this was the only restaurant open. And what a find it was! A comfortable restaurant with a roaring fire. The owner served us two giant plates of assorted charcuteries, four different glasses of Gattinara, one plate of Risotto Gattinara, one plate of Tagliatelle con pesce, one plate of Asini (donkey!) and a double...
