Real effort, but don't choose the truffle

We had a nice dinner here, the service was good, the appetizers and the starters were excellent, the dessert too and each of them presented like in a real gastronomic restaurant. Our only disappointment was the main course: we choose truffle, as it was the season, but it had so little taste that I... read more

Since this restaurant is located in Roero, the other side of the hills, 8 km North of Alba, it is not as well known as some around the Barolo&Barbaresco area. It was recommended to us some years ago, and we come at least once during each visit in the area. Takes less than 15 minutes from Alba, 20 from La... More

We called here for dinner on a Saturday night and the restaurant wasn't full. The location is very nice- both the elegantly decorated indoor and terrace outside. They bring a beautiful array of aperitivo finger food whilst you are waiting on your meal which was delicious. The wait between courses was unexplainably and ridiculously slow- not just our table- to... More

We went here for the second time, last time was five years ago. Again, a very good experience. We had a lovely lunch, especially the brasato was to die for, as well as the big plate with friandises that accompanied the coffee.

If you are into great food and you don't go to this restaurant then you are missing out on a wonderful experience. The food is creative and delicious, and the staff were attentive and helpful. Everything about lo e Luna is fabulous. It was without a doubt our best meal in Italy.

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Piemonte, located in Guarene on the Roero side (less touristic than lovely Langhe). The food is based on the traditional Piemontese, but modernized and some dishes are spectacular. The view is great, too. The amuse and the bonus desserts are great, too. A minus for the wine list, because several of the... More

My husband took me and the family here for my birthday. Upon arrival I wasn't sure what to expect since the decor is a little 'cold'. The staff however, were anything but cold and were very helpful in trying to explain what certain dishes were. Before our 'ordered' starters arrived, we had already received 3 different 'amuses' - each one... More

Very good, modern, inventive food but firmly based on the traditional Piemontese cuisine. Second visit and it is still very good! Were able to receive us at short notice for Sunday lunch. Had visitors by car also from as far away as Monte Carlo, so word must be spreading about this restaurant, which is well worth a visit!! Very small... More
