Sebastiano and Patricia are always on hand to make a visit to the Crota memorable. The food is homemade and the wines are all local. It is our local favourite.

Over the last eight years I have been to "La Crota" many times. This restaurant doubles as the official town wine cellar, showcasing the wines of all local producers. The beautiful brick vault in the main dining room creates a wonderful atmosphere. The talented chef, Patrizia Piccino, has just been formally recognised as one of the top cooks in the... More

Excelent restaurant in a small village in Piemonte, not far from Alba. When it seems there is nothing around (specially at night when I was there) suddenly. a wonderful place is just in front of you. Delicious food and upper class service by the owner, Signore Sebastiano. Just loved it !!

We arrived there one hour later, but that didn't seem to annoy the host. He seemed very busy, being the only one who served in the restaurant. Even so, when he came to you he spoke very friendly. My husband had first ordered a wine which he than wished to change with another, and the waiter did so without feeling... More

Having discovered Crota D'Calos a few years ago we return each time and are always pleasantly surprised. The drive to Calosso alone is a joy and the view over the surrounding area is just divine no matter what time of the year you visit. The restaurant is decorated in local Piedmontese style and also hosts the wines from the surrounding... More

Its the place to go for decent food, excellent wine, and the all-round expertise and bonhomie of the inimitable host, Sebastiano. Calosso is in the Unesco world heritage zone - must be doing something right.

We have been to Osteria Crota D'Calos several times, and always enjoy the stunning location in the historic center of Calosso with its fantastic views over the Monferrato wine hills. Going there for a lunch on a cold, misty day in early February, we could only dream of enjoying the terrace, where meals are served during the hot months of... More

This place is truly amazing! I really like how flexible their menu can get and how personalized their customer interaction is. My visit here just tops my trip to Italy, and I will certainly not hesitate going back!

This restaurant never disappoints and another recent visit confirmed our view. Sebastiano, il capo, is a fantastic host and always willing to accommodate changes to the menu i.e. a mix and match from the a la carte to the menu degustazione. Our daughter and husband were overwhelmed with the welcome, food and wine. We splashed out and actually chose a... More
