I've eaten at Alla Cantina di Carignano many times and I have to say, each time is a pleasure! The Worker's Lunch (Pranzo di Lavoro) is an especially good deal. For 9euros one can have one choice of 5 pastas, one choice of 4 meat/seafood dishes, 1/4 ltr of wine, and water. The Pasta Scoglio was definitely the best I've... More

The pranzi di lavoro is served in a large, separate room [away from the "normal" customers] in the restaurant from Monday to Saturday at an unbeatble low price of just 9 Euros. For that you get a 1st and 2nd plate, vegatables or salad, mineral water, 1/4 litre of wine, plus coffee. Plenty to select from [fish or meat] the... More

We stumbled across this restaurant whilst out for a drive and was very surprised at how good it was. On entering from the roadside there seems to be a posher restaurant on the right hand side, but go left and they have a set menu for lunch for 9 euro including starter, main, contorno (veggie dish), wine and coffee.

My teenage boys and I had lunch here today and were so pleasantly surprised. We have been watching the pennies during our holiday and subsequently, restaurants we have eaten in have not always been Michelin standard!! The food here was authentic and very tasty. I had the spelt soup; two boys the mixed grill and the other, spaghetti carbonara. All... More

Visited this restaurant twice. Menu was extensive and food well cooked. Had the Filleto di Manzo (steak) on first visit and Lamb Chops on second night. My wife had Spaghetti alla Vongele on both nights.

We were staying at the attached hotel and really enjoyed our dinner in this restaurant. They pointed out to us the fresh produce in season at the moment (porcini mushroom and artichokes) and had these in a display near the front counter. They also highlighted these ingredients in a seasonal menu. I parrticularly enjoyed the cinghiale (wild boar) with polenta.

We have eaten here twice and on both occasions the food was great however the staff were not particularly friendly. To be a successful bussines you need to score well in all departments. So if they can work as hard on the waiting staff as they do on the food maybe their Marks will improve.
